Kendrick Lamar ‘s New ‘Untitled’ Album Sits Pretty At No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart
It’s untitled, unmastered and Number 1. By none other than Compton emcee, Kendrick Lamar.
As reported by Billboard, Kendrick Lamar’s Untitled Unmastered jumped to the top of the Billboard 200 after its surprise release, selling 178,000 total copies in the week ending March 10. Out of that, 142,000 were in pure album sales.
This is a second chart topper since January 2015 for the 7-time grammy award winner. Lamar dropped To Pimp a Butterfly in March last year and it debuted at No.1 with 363,000 album units and 324,000 in pure album sales. The only other artists with similarly twice the charm with albums in less than 12 months are our homeboys Drake and Future.
Drake led the list twice in 2015 with If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late and his Future collaboration What a Time To Be Alive. Future took it a step further and notched three No. 1s in less than seven months (between August 2015 and February 2016) with DS2, What a Time To Be Alive and Evol.
Lamar tweeted that Untitled Unmastered consists of “demos from To Pimp a Butterfly. In raw form.” Like the album’s title, its tracks are named unconventionally: “untitled 01 | 08.19.2014.,” “untitled 02 | 06.23.2014.” and so on.
Lamar’s album is flanked by Adele’s 25 at No. 2 after 11 weeks at #1 (61,000 units; down 18 percent) and Rihanna’s Anti at No. 3 (58,000 units; down 18 percent).
But these guys better watch out coz 2 Chainz aint playing! He celebrates his third straight top five album, as ColleGrove – a joint album with hip hop badass Lil Wayne finishes at No. 4 with 53,000 units (and 34,000 in pure album sales).
