Kendrick Lamar Tops Album Chart, The 1975 Drop Out Of Top 10 After One Week At #1
Last week’s two biggest entries on the Billboard 200, The 1975‘s I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘ This Unruly Mess I’ve Made, tumble from their respective #1 and #4 positions and out of the Top 10 entirely — ouch! — making way for Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz in their places.
Kendrick enters at #1 with demo compilation untitled unmastered. one year after capturing the album chart’s top spot with his Grammy-winning third LP, To Pimp a Butterfly. Altogether, untitled unmastered. moved 178,000 album units, 142,000 of which were sales.
2 Chainz goes in at #4 with CollegeGrove (34,000 sales), his collaborative LP with Lil Wayne. To-date, all three of 2 Chainz’s album have landed in the Top 10.
With no really big releases arriving last Friday, we likely won’t see much of a shakeup until Gwen Stefani and Zayn‘s new ones arrive in the coming weeks.
