And finally J. Cole gets his just due!!!! Third week sales are in for J. Cole and he comes in at #1 after battles with his friends Kanye and Wale. After dropping his album on the same date as Kanye, J. Cole’s lost the first week battle to Yeezus. Wale dropped “The Gifted” and once again Cole came in at #2 for the second week this time, however, beating out Kanye who had a 80% drop in sales. Third week numbers are in and (drumroll please).. tadaaaaaaa .. Cold World moved 55,000 copies of his album Born Sinner, having a 33% drop, but still sliding into home at #1 !!!!
Meanwhile Wale came in at #2 with 48,000 and Yeezus maintained in 3rd place with 40,000 sold this past week. The real winner here however is bossman Jay Z. For the past 3 weeks Jays team have been in that #1 spot. Wale and J. Cole both being signed to Roc Nation and Kanye to Roca-a-fella. And the Jay Z reign just won’t let up. His Magna Carta Holy Grail album has not only been certified platinum already but it’s expected to come in at #1 next week as well. #NewRules #JaysLaugh #FactsOnly 🙂
