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!
