Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’ #1, J. Cole’s ‘Born Sinner’ a close #2

The numbers are in and its very close but overall very disappointing for Kanye. As expected, Kanye West was at the top and its his sixth time (counting Watch the Throne). He only sold 328K which is a little lower than expected (500k maybe?).    J. Cole placed in a close second with his album Born Sinner selling 297K and only less than 31k less copies. Mac Miller‘s Watching Movies With the Sound Off came in a distant third coming in at 100k mark. This is a noteworthy milestone as it marks the first time that three hip hop albums have sold six figures in the same week since November of 2006.
