In what I believe to be a greater feat than selling nearly 300k in it’s first week, J. Cole’s Born Sinner outsells Wale’s newly-released The Gifted and Kanye West’s Selling 58k to beat out Wale’s 50k. This week’s sales also push Cole over Kanye West overall, with Born Sinner being at 439k and Yeezus at 431k.
Congrats to Cole and the Dreamville team for officially reaching their second #1 album!
3 weeks later. #1 Album in the country. Born Sinner. Thank You
