Kendrick Lamar Debuts at No.2 on Billboard Charts

31 Oct, 2012

Taylor Swift’s “Red” album explodes at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 1.208 million copies in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan. It’s the largest sales week for an album since 2002, when Eminem’s “The Eminem Show” sold 1.322 million in its first full week at No. 1.

“Red” is only the 18th album to sell a million units in a single week since SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991.

Settling for a No. 2 debut on the chart this week is Kendrick Lamar’s “Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City,” starting with 241,000. The Top Dawg/Aftermath/Interscope set is Lamar’s major label bow, after earlier charting with his Top Dawg indie release “Section.80.” The last male artist to start with a bigger sales figure with his first major label full-length set was Drake, when “Thank Me Later” launched with 447,000 in June of 2010.

Lamar also hits No. 1 on both the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Rap Albums charts.
