Kendrick Lamar Smashes Drake’s 2017 Sales Record With “DAMN”


(AllHipHop News) Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. is now  the top album of the years, crushing the 2017 record set by Drake’s More Life.

DAMN. surpassed 300 million streams in it’s first week out, the second album this year to achieve such a feat. Drake’s More Life pushed out 385 million streams late March.

Kendrick’s opus straight sold 325k, which Hits Daily Double reports is about 100k more than More Life.

Billboard suggests strongly that K-Dot will push 530,000 to 550,000 equivalent album units, but other metrics go as high as 610k.

DAMN. dropped on April 14.

Kendrick’s Untitled Unmastered. (2016) and 2015’s To Pimp a Butterfly also topped the charts.
