Billboard’s Top 10 Album Sales, Week Ending 6/28/15 … Tori Kelly Debuts At #2!

Billboard

Last week, both Trey Songz and King Los released new projects…and neither fared very well on the Billboard 200. Though Trey is very much in the public eye and constantly played on radio, Trigga Reloaded only did 17k in its first week, landing at 23. However, I do believe this was a re-release, so that’s not too surprising.

Los, on the other hand, moved 8k units of his new God, Money, War, landing at 68. With no machine behind him (aka a major label), no radio play and no real promo, I’d say this is a pretty solid number. Beats Troy Ave and Tyga, that’s for sure!

Also debuting this week is everyone’s new fav Tori Kelly, whose debut album Unbreakable comes in at number 2 with a solid 75k sold! Nice! Check out the full top 10 below.

The Numbers Are In! Find Out How Much Meek Mill’s ‘Dreams Worth More Than Money’ Is Expected To Sell!

ifwt_Meek Mill MAIN

After tons of delays due to unforeseen circumstances, Meek Mill finally released his highly anticipated sophomore effort this week, Dreams Worth More Than Money.

Released on Sunday night as opposed to the traditional Tuesday (so as to capitalize off his appearance at the 2015 BET Awards), Meek actually gave himself a leg up on those coveted first-week sales, allowing an additional day worth of sales to be calculated. For those not in-the-know, Nielsen Soundscan tracks sales for each week from Monday to Sunday. Since albums traditionally release on Tuesdays (though that’s changing next week and will now become Fridays,) this means that the first-week sales that we always hear about are actually only 6 days worth, not 7.

Billboard

A$AP Rocky is now two-for-two with number one albums, as his sophomore effort At.Long.Last.A$AP. tops the charts this week with 146k units sold! This is his first release since his debut Long.Live.A$AP, which debuted atop the tally dated February 2, 2013 with 139k copies sold. Suffice to say, Pretty Flacko‘s still got it!

Another big debut came from Boosie Badazz, whose first post-prison release, Touchdown 2 Cause Hell, comes in at number 3 with 64k units sold. Congrats!

YIKES! Ciara’s First Week Sales Projections Aren’t Looking Too Good At All!

Ciara

Looking ahead to next week, it doesn’t seem like Ciara is going to fare very well…as HDD projects the singer’s new album Jackie to do only 19-22k (21-24k SPS) in the first week. Ouch. In comparison, the singer’s last album in 2013 did 59k and debuted at number 2, fueled by the success of “Body Party.” Hopefully she’ll still get a top 10 debut at least?

She probably isn’t tripping too much, though. She has a beautiful baby boy, a budding new relationship with someone who seems to be a pretty great guy, and she is KILLING it on the road! Check out a new clip of CiCi getting her Michael Jackson on during her Jackie tour. This girl can MOVE!

Billboard’s Top 10 Album Sales, Week Ending 4/26/15 … Congrats To Yelawolf On A #3 Debut!

Billboard

Following up his 2011 debut Radioactive, Yelawolf‘s sophomore effort Love Story arrived at number 3 this week on the Billboard 200 with 58,000 units sold. This by far surpasses Radioactive with both Billboard peak and first week sales, as it came in at number 27 with 41k.

Also having a good week on Billboard is Drake, whose If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late climbed up from 10 last week to 4 with 48k units – thanks in large part to the physical version being released to stores last week.

The Numbers Are In! Find Out How Much Young Thug’s ‘Barter 6′ Sold The First Week!

Billboard

Though Young Thug touted the controversial Barter 6 as just a mixtape, it was still made for sale on iTunes like Drake’s If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late – but unlike Drake, Thugger’s did not sell very well.

After one week, Barter 6 debuts at a measly 26 on the Billboard 200, with just under 19,000 sold. In comparison, last week’s other semi-surprise release – Tyler, The Creator’s Cherry Bomb – sold 58k and debuted at number 4. Hopefully Thugger’s official debut fares a little better.

Billboard’s Top 10 Album Sales, Week Ending 4/12/15 … Furious 7 Soundtrack Races To #1

Billboard

Currently on its fourth week in stores, the Furious 7 soundtrack has sped up to number one on the Billboard 200 this week, moving another 111,000 units. The project is being fueled by the mega success of its lead single – Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” with Charlie Puth. The song plays during the final scene in the movie, and sold 464,000 downloads for the past week. Wiz also recently premiered the video, as well as performed it on NBC’s The Voice, both of which also helped immensely.

Elsewhere on the chart, Kendrick and Drake still remain comfortably in the top 10. Meanwhile, last week’s number one album, Wale’s The Album About Nothing, falls to number 11 in its second week with 33,000 units sold.

Billboard’s Top 10 Album Sales, Week Ending 3/22/15 … Congrats To Kendrick Lamar On A #1 Debut!

Billboard

There is definitely no sophomore jinx for Kendrick Lamar! The arrival of his second album To Pimp A Butterfly has him perched atop the Billboard 200 for the very first time with a whopping 363k units sold, after his first album, 2012’s good kid, m.A.A.d city, debuted and peaked at number 2, selling 241,000 copies. This number includes SPS (sales plus streaming,) but traditional sales comprise 89% of its overall unit total at 324k.

The album was only announced on March 6, then had a surprise release a week early, so once again, this new “surprise” formula proves successful!
