Kendrick Lamar ‘Pimps’ Out The Top Of The Album Chart For 2nd Week, Plus The Kidz Bop Version Of “Jealous” Is Amazing
Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly has become the first album to spend more than a week atop the Billboard 200 since Taylor Swift’s fall 2014 release, 1989. Kendrick’s third album moved 123,000 unites in its second week on sale, giving it more than an edge over recent new releases by Action Bronson (who enters the Top 10 at #7 with Mr. Wonderful) and the 28th installment of the Kidz Bop series (#10).
The usual suspects fill up the rest of the Top 10, and since that’s a snooze, let’s end on the ridiculously cleaned up Kidz Bop version of Nick Jonas‘ “Jealous.”
The Top 10 of the Billboard 200:
1. Kendrick Lamar, To Pimp A Butterfly *2 weeks* 2. Soundtrack, Empire 3. Soundtrack, Fifty Shades Of Grey 4. Sam Smith, In The Lonely Hour 5. Taylor Swift, 1989 6. Ed Sheeran, x 7. Action Bronson, Mr. Wonderful *new* 8. Drake, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late 9. Maroon 5, V 10. Kidz Bop Kids, Kidz Bop 28 *new*
