Big Sean dropped his third studio album last week with Dark Sky Paradise and I guess the third time is the charm because it earned him his first #1 album. Funny enough, all of his previous albums debuted at#3. This is also his biggest release in terms of sales and the first time he’s moved over a 100,000 units. As usualy, we reviewed the project and if you haven’t go check out our (dope) review of Dark Sky Paradise.
Also making a debut this week is the collaborative album by Chris Brown & Tyga titled Fan Of A Fan: The Album. It landed at #7 and sold 66,500 copies. I just now halfway looked at the previous numbers and it seems like this is a best for Tyga and a worst for Chris Brown in terms of sales and ranking. Even more of a win for Tyga seeing that he actually released an album despite his current label drama. And shout out to Chris Breezy on being a new dad (Allegedly).
I forgot who said this in the comment section, but J. Cole just needs another single to get that Platinum plaque.
Rae Sremmurd‘s album sales aren’t crazy but they’ve consistently been in the Top 50 for 8 weeks. I sure the single sales are good too.
Again. Who the hell is buying those Pitbull albums?
