Megan the Stallion and More – Billboard


It might surprise some pop and hip-hop fans to see Megan Thee Stallion — one of the most recognizable artists of the past half-decade in popular music, responsible for several massive hits and culture-dominating catchphrases — making her mark. debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 album chart this week (dated August 27) with her Traumazine together, three points below the new, much less visible Rod Wave Nice spirit LP.

The thing is, despite her major hits — including two No. 1s on the Billboard Hot 100 — Megan has never scored a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200. While the Houston rapper has pop hits and a profile public the likes of which an artist like Rod Wave (who previously topped the Billboard 200 with 2021 soulfly) can currently only dream of, the latter is the artist who broadcasts in the greatest volume when it comes to complete albums: Nice spirit racked up 157.753 million official US on-demand streams for its 24 tracks in its first week, while Traumazine managed 85.72 million official on-demand streams for its 18 tracks during the same period, according to Luminate.

However, Megan is far from the only major star not to have a Billboard 200-topped LP on her resume. Here are 10 of the biggest names of recent years who have yet to reach pole position on the leaderboard, in no particular order.
