The Numbers Game: Future, Iggy Azalea, & Asher Roth

future

This week we lead off with Future‘s Honest which is also the #2 album on the charts. This also continues the trend of having a low sales #2 album (The #2 album last week was August Alsina’s Testimony and it sold 67,000). I still feel Future’s sales should be higher but maybe this is where album sales are going. Check out our review of Future’s Honest here.

Iggy Azalea finally drops her debut album with The New Classic. I’m happy for her. I couldn’t get through the album but I’m still happy for her. She also almost has the #2 album and missed it by 1,000 units. The New Classic sells 52,000 copies in it’s first week and lands at #3. Review coming soon Here.

Asher Roth also made his appearance this week and dropped his first album since 2009 with RetroHash. I haven’t had time to listen to it but I fucks with Asher. The album makes the Top 50 and sells 6,100 copies. Review coming soon. I hope.
