Exit polls aren't the only projections today! Meek Mill's debut album, Dreams & Nightmares, is slated to sell 167K in its first week, according to HDD, which is good for the #2 spot (behind Taylor Swift). In related news, Kendrick Lamar's second week on the charts sees him at 59K sold for good kid, m.a.a.d. city. Thoughts on the numbers?!
The official numbers are in: Kendrick Lamar debuts at #2 on the Billboard 200 with a whopping 242K sold in its debut week, trailing only Taylor Swift because she apparently rules the universe. 1.2 million copies sold for her album of which the title is escaping me right now. #IDontListenToCountry #YeShrug
Congrats, K. Dot. Great numbers for him and the genre of hip hop. Be sure to celebrate with Kendrick by download his new track he recorded last night with J.Cole and dropped just an hour ago: "The Jig Is Up (Dump'n)". And Shyne, you may want to duck and cover when you listen to this one.
