Tyler, The Creator’s sheer dedication and hard work towards his sixth album ‘Call Me If You Get Lost’ has finally paid off as the album debuted atop the 200 Billboard Chart dethroning Olivia Rodrigo's ‘Sour’ that had reserved the top spot for the last two weeks. Doja Cat’s third studio effort ‘Planet Her’ followed it closely and secured the second position on the album charts.

The 31-year-old rapper’s new album featured guest vocals from top hip-hop artists like Lil Wayne, Ty Dolla $ign, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Brent Faiyaz, Domo Genesis, Lil Uzi Vert, Pharrell Williams, and others. According to Billboard, ‘Call Me If You Get Lost’ sold 169,000 equivalent album units in the US in the week ending July 1, as revealed by the MRC Data. This is the second time when Tyler has scored a number one album. He had first achieved the feat with his fifth studio effort ‘Igor’ in 2019. ‘Call Me If You Get Lost’ was announced on June 17 and it hit the streaming platforms on June 25 via Columbia Records.
