ScHoolboy Q & Kid Cudi First Week Sales Numbers
Exactly one week ago, ScHoolboy Q and Kid Cudi each released a full length album. While ScHoolboy Q's release was premeditated, Kid Cudi dropped a ten track album out of no where, only making fans aware of the release a couple hours prior.
Today, the official first week sales numbers for each artist's respective LPs were released. When the numbers were revealed, ScHoolboy Q became the first TDE artist to take the number one spot on the Billboard charts, selling 138,517 units of his debut LP, Oxymoron, during its first week.
Kid Cudi held down the the fourth spot, selling a very respectable 85,860 digital copies of his fifth album, Satellite Flight: The Journey To Mother Moon, during its first seven days of availability.
