Billboard’s Top 10 Album Sales, Week Ending 3/23/14 … Congrats to YG on a #2 Debut!

Billboard

Damn you, Frozen soundtrack! The new release of the movie on DVD and Blu-ray brought its already chart-topping soundtrack to its highest numbers yet…in its 17th week, at that…moving 202k units and screwing things up for YG! Because of this, YG’s debut, My Krazy Life, missed its opportunity for the number one spot, though coming in at number 2 with 61k sold isn’t too shabby either! While some are saying this number isn’t great – you have to consider the fact that he was ONLY popular regionally up until just a couple of months ago. He delivered an extremely solid and acclaimed project, with two singles selling extremely well, so it’s not like the numbers were strictly because of a fluke, one-hit wonder situation. Congrats, homie! Check out the rest of the top 10 below!
