How did Nicki Minaj and Trippie Redd fare with their latest projects?
Last Friday, both Nicki Minaj and Trippie Redd dropped of their latest projects, Queen and Life's A Trip respectively. While both albums seemed to fare quite well with their respective bases, the question remains: how did that translate into tangible sales? After all, people continue to use first week sales as a status measurement, and both parties seemed poised for big releases in their weight classes. Now, HDD has come forth with some projected data.
As of now, it's being reported that Nicki Minaj is poised to deliver between 135-150k total sales, with 45-55k coming from physical album sales. As for Trippie, he's looking at between 66-71k, with 13-15k coming from physicals. While Nicki certainly came forth with a strong offering, it does, however, land as her lowest first week haul thus far. For some context, The Pinkprint moved 244k, and now, Nicki still has Travis Scott's Astroworld to contend with. Still, her numbers are nothing to scoff at; likewise for Trippie, who proved doubters wrong, including longtime frenemy 6ix9ine.
Do you think both parties secured a win? Sound off below.
