Silky, smooth, and soulful. Hip hop and R&B's reigning Renaissance man, Bryson Tiller, has landed atop the Billboard 200 albums chart by selling the equivalent of 107,000 albums during the week ending June 1.

For the entire week, Tiller's second studio album, True to Self, outsold both Drake's More Life and Lil Yachty's Teeange Emotions combined. The album also the knocked Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. to the second spot on the list. The highly anticipated album was released last week, just two weeks after the "song-of-the-summer" contender "Somethin Tells Me" was released. 

Catch Tiller on the road this summer; his Set It Off tour with H.E.R. and Metro Boomin is slated to start in Atlanta this coming August.
