Only four artists have moved over a million album units this year.
One of them is NBA YoungBoy. The other three are Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, and Drake
Before anybody argues that YoungBoy is on the level of Swift or Drake, it needs to be pointed out that they both got to a million without releasing a project in 2022, whereas YB dropped the commercial mixtape Colors in January. (Weeknd also dropped Dawn FM in January.)
Nevertheless, none of YB's young rap rivals -- Lil Durk including -- have got to a million, whether they dropped a project or not.
