Find out how much Joey Bada$$ and Lupe Fiasco are expected to sell in their first week on shelves.
Just yesterday we saw the release of two highly anticipated albums, one from a veteran in the game, and one from a relatively new artist. Joey Bada$$ delivered his long-awaited debut album, while Lupe Fiasco delivered his final album on Atlantic, his fifth LP. Who will sell more?
If it's a race between Badmon and Lupe, it looks like Joey might pull out on top. According to HitsDailyDouble, B4.DA.$$ is on course to sell 50,000-55,000 copies opening week (if we factor in streams, the number could be 50,000-60,000). Lupe Fiasco's Tetsuo & Youth is looking like it'll do only 30,000-35,000 opening week (with streams, 35,000-40,000). Do those numbers surprise you?
Let us know which album you purchased if any. Stay tuned for our reviews of both albums to arrive shortly.
