Tyler, the Creator stating: "THIS IS NOT BASTARD. THIS IS NOT GOBLIN. THIS IS NOT WOLF. THIS IS NOT CHERRY BOMB. THIS IS NOT FLOWER BOY. THIS IS IGOR," set the scene for his latest opus, which turned out to be something truly special.
And IGOR has stuck to that claim, breaking the mold of what music from Tyler, the Creator could sound like. With a project as creative and experimental for Tyler, it has proven to be his biggest release to date, scoring him his first No. 1 album.
IGOR has topped the Billboard 200 albums chart, beating out DJ Khaled's Father of Asahd. IGOR earned 165,000 equivalent album units—selling 74,000 albums and gaining 122.9 million song streams in its opening week, according to Nielsen.
It is also worth nothing that with IGOR, Tyler has become the first solo rapper in history to score a No. 1 album for a record that was entirely self-produced and arranged.
