ScHoolboy Q's "Oxymoron" Debuts At No. 1, Kid Cudi's "Satellite Flight" At No. 4

ScHoolboy Q's "Oxymoron" nabs the #1 debut on the Billboard 200, while Kid Cudi follows at #4.

The numbers are in for both ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron and Kid Cudi's Satellite Flight albums. Last week, according to projections, Q was on track to move 150-160k, while Cudder was looking like he'd sell 90-95k. As it turns out, both rappers fell slightly short of their projected sales, but nonetheless, each had a successful release.

According to HDD, Oxymoron actually sold 138,517 copies, giving it the #1 debut on the Billboard 200 (compare this to Q's Habits & Contradictions, which sold 3,900 copies in the first week; that's quite a leap for Groovy Q), which is also TDE's first #1 album. Satellite Flight moved a total 85,860 copies, which placed him at #4. Indicud, on the other hand, debut at #2 with 140,000 copies sold. Satellite Flight happens to be Cudi's lowest-selling solo album ever, but, it was only released online, so the numbers still seem impressive. Kid Cudi & Dot Da Genius' WZRD LP in 2012 moved less than this project though, clocking in at 66,000.

Did they sell as you expected, or are you surprised?
