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!

Check out the full top 10 below.

Kendrick Lamar

Not only did Kendrick Lamar drop one of the most highly-anticipated and talked about albums in YEARS, but he’s also giving back to his fans. Just one week after To Pimp A Butterfly was released, K. Dot did a free concert sponsored by Reebok’s #GetPumped campaign via a moving 18-wheeler truck all up and down Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles where THOUSANDS of die-hard fans waited outside just to see him.

With only an hours notice, Kendrick tweeted out “9pm. meet me here. 8950 Sunset Blvd. 930pm. meet me here. 8466 Melrose Ave.” He performed classic hits off of his first album good kid, m.A.A.d city and then also performed tracks off his latest, To Pimp A Butterfly, for the FIRST time ever live.

(Photos) Rumor Mill: Is Kendrick Lamar Engaged To His High School Sweetheart?!

ifwt_kendrick_main

Could Kendrick Lamar be the next to tie the knot? From the looks of it, wedding bells might be ringing soon for the To Pimp A Butterfly Compton emcee. It has been recently reported that Kendrick Lamar has apparently been in a committed relationship with his high school sweetheart who goes by the name of Whitney Alford for the past 9+ years. While doing promo for his new album that is already being dubbed as a classic, Kendrick and Lamar were spotted out and about. That would be extremely normal IF a huge rock on her finger wasn’t spotted.

I’m not diamond expert but it sure looks like an engagement ring to me. Being that Kendrick is super private with his personal life, I’m sure it will take us awhile to find out if he really did pop the question or not. However, we JUST found out that he even had a girlfriend so finding out if he’s engaged will probably be a tad bit more tough. ALTHOUGH– back in 2013 when Kendrick chopped it up with R&B songbird Erykah Badu, he did mention that he had a “main chick” as he called it. “But the main one is a friend of mine – a lady friend who has known me since high school. She has always been someone, since day one, who has said something whenever I’m an a*****e, or also if I’m doin’ something positive – but more so when I’m out of my element,”

WELPPPPPP, sounds legit to me. Check

Rapsody Explains “Complexion” Feature On Kendrick’s ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ Album; Flying Lotus Talks Production

IFWT_TPAB_Flying_Lotus_Rapsody

Kendrick Lamar shocked the world in more ways than one when he dropped To Pimp A Butterfly, eight days before its scheduled release date – an early release Top Dawg, man in-charge, blames on Interscope. Although there was a minor glitch in the iTunes link to purchase the album (thank God for pre-order), most fans still got the chance to listen to the 16-track release. Artists Ronald Isley, George Clinton, Anna Wise and Rapsody are featured on the set.

Rapsody, who drops a few lines on the track “Complexion,” talks to Complex about what it was like to be featured on the album, the song’s meaning and the chemistry she shared with K. Dot. “Outside of being my peer, I’m also a fan. Outside of being an artist, I’m a fan of music and I’m a fan of Kendrick,” Rapsody says. “Anytime I do something, with Kendrick or Ab-Soul or Big K.R.I.T., I know enough about their music and enough about their story that they have put out to the world that you kind of have an idea from where you kind of take it if that makes sense,” she adds.
