G-Eazy reigned supreme among new hip hop releases.
G-Eazy took home the top-selling hip-hop album this week. According to HDD, his sophomore album When It’s Dark Out moved 93,000 units and 97k sales-plus-streaming (SPS), well ahead of Rick Ross‘ Black Market, which moved 57k units SPS. Curren$y‘s Canal St Confidential sold 18k units SPS, narrowly ahead of Kid Cudi‘s Speedin Bullet 2 Heaven, which sold 15k.
Meanwhile, Adele continues to wreak havoc in the charts – her album 25 moved 696K units including SPS in its third week.
Sad news for Jeremih: his outstanding Late Nights: The Album didn’t even crack the top 50, which means it sold less than 14k units including SPS. Looks like 50 Cent was right when he said that Def Jam has done Jeremih foul.
