(AllHipHop News) The final first week sales numbers for Meek Mill’s sophomore studio album Dreams Worth More Than Money were impressive. An opening week of 215,000 traditional album sales (246,000 equivalent album units) put the MMG rapper in rare company.
DWMTM has the fourth largest debut sales week of the year. Only Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (495,000), Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly (324,000), and Mumford & Sons’ Wilder Mind (231,000) pulled in bigger tallies in 2015. That also means three of the four top first week sellers were rap albums.
Meek easily took the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The Philadelphia native joins Drake, Kendrick, Big Sean, Wale, and A$AP Rocky as the only rappers to score #1 albums in 2015 so far.
