The Numbers Game: A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie & PARTYNEXTDOOR

I know I sound like a broken record at this point (Only if you read these posts where I talk about record sales), but I had no idea that A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie had the ability to have an album debut at #4. But he did just that this week with Bigger Artist, his debut studio album. I really have nothing else to say because I never had the urge to listen to music by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, but Bronx stand up. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Bigger Artist sold 66,000 units in it’s first week (It even outsold Miley Cyrus’ new album).

It always feels like PARTYNEXTDOOR should be doing better. His last few project have did well (Partnextdoor 3 debuted at #3 in 2016) but this week his Seven Days EP debuted at #82. I’m sure he’ll bounce back when he does a proper rollout on the next project (I’m not even gonna talk about Party’s recent drug arrest). Seven Days EP sold 8,000 units in it’s first week.

Props to Shania Twain for getting her first 1# album in fifteen years with Now. I only mention this because she was pretty good on Broad City.

R.I.P. Tom Petty. As with what happens most of the time in the wake of the death of a major musician, his Greatest Hits album shot up to the #2 position and sold 84,000 units. Check out Short-T’s Alt-Sunday featuring Tom Petty.

And finally in Cardi B news, “Bodak Yellow” is still #1 making the song the longest running #1 by a female rapper. Add that to her multiple wins at the recent BET Hip Hop Awards, and it’s been a good week year for Cardi.
