Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN” Tops Drake’s “More Life” For Biggest Debut of 2017
I’ma let you finish, but Kendrick Lamar had the largest album debut of 2017..
Just last week, Billboard made a bold prediction, claiming that Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN” would not be able to touch Drake’s “More Life” – which moved 505,000 units its first week. But the numbers are in, and Kendrick held it down for Compton, selling over 603,000 album units his opening week! For Kendrick, “DAMN” also outperformed his 2015 release, “To Pimp a Butterfly.”
All hail King Kendrick! Too bad we didn’t get that second new album that was rumored to drop Easter Sunday.
