Kendrick Lamar’s done it again with his sophmore album To Pimp A Butterfly which secretly dropped March 16th and has earned him his first #1 spot on the Billboard 200 charts.
According to Billboard, To Pimp a Butterfly sold 324,000 copies in its first week — comprising 89 percent of its overall unit total. That 324,000 launch is the second-largest sales week of 2015. Not to mention Kendrick locked in the #1 spot on Spotify for the most streamed album… EVER! With over 9.6 million streams on the first day.
K. Dot beat our Drake on both the #1 spots on both Billboard and Spotify. iTunes has yet to release sales totals for the album’s first week.
