A$AP Rocky Nabs UK #1 With ‘Long Live A$AP’ / Dominates Singles Chart

Published: Monday 21st Jan 2013 by David

While R&B’s market continues to dwindle by the year, it seems Hip Hop continues on to do the opposite- spawning at least two or three cash cows per year.

This year, one of these was Mr. ‘Problem’ himself, A$AP Rocky whose debut album ‘Long Live A$AP’ has pulled a number of stunts and tricks on his competitors this week, both home and away.

Find out how the LP fared in the UK below…

Peaking at #7 on the Official Charts, the project hit #1 on the Urban Album chart marking the highest selling Hip Hop release of the year thus far.

On a singles front, the Rapper nabbed not one, not two but three spots on the Urban Top 40 with ‘Goldie‘ rising 54 spots to occupy #38, ‘Problems‘ sitting pretty at #12 and ‘Wild For The Night’ placed one spot above at #11.

On the overall chart, he stands as the only Hip Hop act to enjoy two or more cuts in the Top 50 with the last two cuts sat at #49 and #50 respectively. All this, days before the LP is set to top the Billboard 200– outselling digits moved by Taylor Swift and One Direction in the last week.

    i was impressed until i read “Urban album chart” which is a pot-of-p*** to go #1. he went #7 on the official chart.
    TGJ has a very limited knowledge on hip hop, you praise A$AP, Nicki and Drake. These are all rap artists for teenage girls who dont know what proper rap is.

    • CHUDDS January 21, 2013

      Ummm grown men & women also listen to A$AP and Drake. You’re correct about Nicki.

    And this kiddies is by design or must we have YET ANOTHER CONVERSATION about the “Media-Music Industry MONOPOLY”! BLACK MUSIC will forever be pushed to the background as long as BLACK PEOPLE CONTINUE down a path of WEAKNESS & DIVISION! Lack of media ownership means there are no oportunities for BLACK R&B/SOUL and JAZZ to be heard by the masses as is POP, COUNTRY & HIP HOP! The “POWERS THAT BE” are doing a great job at getting what they want!

    Anyway, “We Shall Overcome” Right?
