Kendrick Lamar Smashes Drake’s 2017 Sales Record With “DAMN”
(AllHipHop News) DAMN. surpassed 300 million streams in it’s first week out, the second album this year to achieve such a feat. Drake’s More Life pushed out 385 million streams late March.
Kendrick’s opus straight sold 325k, which Hits Daily Double reports is about 100k more than More Life.
Billboard suggests strongly that K-Dot will push 530,000 to 550,000 equivalent album units, but other metrics go as high as 610k.
DAMN. dropped on April 14.
Kendrick’s Untitled Unmastered. (2016) and 2015’s To Pimp a Butterfly also topped the charts.
