Gunna’s ‘A Gift & A Curse’ Album Makes Top 5 Debut—Even With Alleged “Snitching”


The southerner dropped his first LP since pleading guilty.

Gunna’s latest album, A Gift & a Curse, opened at No. 3 on the most recent Billboard 200 chart, pulling in more than 85,000 total album equivalent units. Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time remained at No. 1 for the fourteenth non-consecutive week.

Gunna previously opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with Wunna in 2020 and DS4Ever in 2022. Wunna collected roughly 111,000 first-week units, while DS4Ever amassed around 150,000. His Drip or Drown 2 peaked at No. 3 in 2019.

Gunna also scored another Top 10 entry when 2018’s Drip Harder collaborative project with Lil Baby landed at No. 4. Unlike his older bodies of work, A Gift & a Curse didn’t have any guest features. Some of his peers, like Lil Durk, blasted Gunna for what they saw as being disloyal to Young Thug.

A lot of rap fans have been waiting to see how Gunna’s latest music project would sell. The Atlanta native faced widespread allegations of “snitching” over the last six months.

There’ve been questions about whether Gunna’s decision to plead guilty to a racketeering charge in Georgia would hurt his commercial success. Some critics accused the rapper of turning on Young Thug.

Gunna denied accusations that he essentially helped the government’s case against Young Thug and YSL. He used the “Bread & Butter” song to address the speculation, which lives on A Gift & a Curse.
