“Red Sky” is from 21 Savage’s new LP American Dream, released via Slaughter Gang/Epic Records. It debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 133,000 equivalent album units, becoming his fourth chart-topping set.

Tommy Newport (real name: Oliver Milmine), born in Manchester, England, and raised in Wichita, Kan., has released two solo studio albums in his career: Just To Be Ironic, in 2018, and Glasshead, in February 2023—both on Real Dirty Boy/Silk Ivory. Outside of 21 Savage, he has collaborated with Jazz Cartier (“Jackpot”) and EARTHGANG (“Stargazer”).

Newport, who released his new single “Secret Place” on Friday (Jan. 18), concurrently debuts at No. 35 on the Emerging Artists chart.

As previously reported, all 14 chart-eligible songs from 21 Savage’s American Dream enter the Hot 100, including two in the top 10: “Redrum,” at No. 5, and “Née-nah,” with Travis Scott and Metro Boomin, at No. 10. The debuts up 21 Savage’s total to 103 career Hot 100-charting hits—he becomes just the 16th artist to amass 100 entries or more over the chart’s 65-year history.
