First Week Projections For Joey Bada$$ & Early Projections For Kendrick Lamar
We thought both Joey Bada$$’s All American Bada$$ and Kendrick Lamar’s album were going to drop last Friday.
But Kendrick’s DAMN. got pushed back (or whatever) to later tonight, making Joey Bada$$ the only big rap release this week.
The exclusivity really didn’t help him in sales.
Hits Daily Double projects All American Bada$$ will do between 31-34K first week. That will trail the fourth week of Drake’s More Life (117-122k), the second week of Kodak Black’s Painting Pictures (43-47k), and a host of other albums.
It’s also a step down from the 54K Joey’s debut album B4.Da.$$ sold in its first week.
As for Kendrick …
HDD is projecting 450-500k SPS first week. But the album hasn’t even dropped yet (unless you’re Lebron) so those numbers could be subject to big changes.
