According to HDD, ranking in the top 5 this year for first week sales, were J. Cole, The Weeknd, Beyonce, Drake, and Frank Ocean. The only “rappers” there would be Cole and Drizzy…you might be wondering where Kanye is with his TLOP album.

Peep the gallery above for the full list of 49 albums released this year and their first week sales.
