DJ Khaled’s twelfth studio LP is the best-selling album in America this week. Khaled Khaled became the music producer/record executive’s third Number One of his career.
The 14-track project collected 93,000 first-week album units. That final sales total for Khaled Khaled was slightly below the 100,000 mark projected by industry prognosticators.
However, those opening week numbers were enough for DJ Khaled to add his latest effort to his personal list of Number Ones. Khaled Khaled joins 2016’s Major Key and 2017’s Grateful as Billboard 200 chart-toppers.
