A$AP Rocky Comes In At No. 1 On Billboard 200 Albums Chart

It’s the first debut effort from a rapper to top the chart since 2 Chainz’s Based On a T.R.U. Story, released on September 1st, 2012. Although Kendrick’s Kid, M.A.A.D City sold an impressive batch of 242,000 copies on the first week, it failed to reach number one. (Taylor Swift’s Red, released on the same week, sold 1.2 million copies.) Currently, A$AP Rocky’s “F**kin’ Problems,” featuring guest appearances by Drake, 2 Chainz, and Kendrick Lamar, is enjoying top-five success on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, selling nearly 854,000 downloads.
