I’ll admit that I’m surprised that Kodak Black‘s album, Painting Pictures, grabbed the #3 spot and the equivalent of 71,000 unit’s in its first week. I was mainly surprised because I thought it was one of those strung together albums that managers put together when a rapper in incarcerated, which Kodak Black does a lot (Look at 90% of the projects Gucci Mane released when he was locked down). Obviously I overlooked that it was released under Atlantic. I guess that music video with the Cash Me Outside girl threw me off. Funny enough, this isn’t the first time Kodak Black on the charts. Lil Big Pac reached the #134 spot on the charts back in 2016. Either way, congrats to the Finesse Kid.
Drake went three weeks in a row as More Life keeps the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 charts and sold 136,000 copies last week. Overall, More Life sits at 867,000 copies sold and will easily go Platinum in a week or so. What happens in a two week when Kendrick Lamar’s new album hits the charts? We’ll see (Also, read our
