Boogie's "Everything's For Sale," for sale.
The times have changed. The criteria by which album sales are measured differ greatly from the early millennium, where artists would go platinum through brick and mortar means. In the streaming era, the game has changed. Popular singles seem to be the main catalyst behind a sales juggernaut, and those without one are left to grind it out accordingly. On that note, Shady records signee Boogie has received the first week numbers for Everything's For Sale, which did not happen to feature a smash single.

Gone are the days of D12, Obie Trice, and 50 Cent. It's a new era in the Shady life cycle, and Boogie marks the first chapter. The Compton rapper's debut drew a respectable first week, coming through with 18,397 album equivalent units. In total, Boogie found himself in the twenty-seventh spot, sandwiched between Billie Eilish's Don't Smile At Me and Lil Baby's Street Gossip.
