First Week Sales Projections For MGK, Joe Budden & The Game Are In!


This past Friday, Machine Gun Kelly, Joe Budden and The Game all released new albums, although Game’s was basically just a part 2 of his release the week prior. Game did a double disc for his new album The Documentary 2, but instead broke the release up into 2 weeks, and dubbed this one The Documentary 2.5. In the coming weeks, he will release a hard copy with both discs in the packaging.

Early forecasts are now in, and it looks like Game and MGK are neck-in-neck for the top spot on the Hip-Hop chart on Billboard. (Demi Lovato and Pentatonix are going to take the lead on the overall chart.) Both General Admission and The Documentary 2.5 are on pace to sell around 45-50k units, while Joe’s All Love Lost is looking to move around 15-18k.

Dr. Dre’s New Album Debuted At #2 On The Billboard 200


After a sixteen-year hiatus, Dr. Dre returned to the Billboard charts last week with the release of Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre. The follow-up to 1999’s 2001 debuted at number two on this week’s Billboard 200 chart, moving an impressive 295k units. Of that number, 276k were physical album sales, while the remainder come from streaming services and single sales.

Also notable on the Billboard 200 this week is the sparked interest in Kendrick Lamar and N.W.A. since the release of both Dre’s album and the Straight Outta Compton film. Kendrick’s To Pimp A Butterfly saw a surge in sales this week and jumped up to the number 29 spot with another 12.5k in sales, while N.W.A. continues to jump up the charts with their 1988 release, Straight Outta Compton. In anticipation of the film, the album returned to the charts three weeks ago at #173. Since then, it jumped to 97, and now this week appears at the number 30 spot. With the movie having just come out this past Friday, it’s likely the album will be even higher on next week’s chart. Pretty dope!

In the meantime, check out the full top 10 for this week below.

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


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.
