If you had any doubts about Kendrick Lamar’s album doing well, you can stop now.
The already touted as a classic album “good kid, m.A.A.d city” locks in the number 2 spot with 240k copies sold in the first week.
Kendrick would have been number one, if it wasn’t for Taylor Swift releasing her album “RED” the same week, which sold a breath taking 1.208 million copies.
That Pop market ain’t no joke.
“good kid, m.A.A.d city” earns Lamar the second-best sales week of any rapper in 2012. Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” being the only one that sold more, racking up 253,000 copies its first week out.
Kendrick Tweets his appreciation:
Congrats to Kendrick on his major label debut.
