It may have faced the drama of an unexpected leak, but A$AP Rocky‘s debut LP ‘Long Live A$AP’ is well on its way to beating the odds on the Billboard 200 next week.
For, by way of a fan base who decided to put their money where their mouths are, he is on course to nab the top spot on the chart- marking the first Hip Hop #1 album of the year.
Exciting details below…
Predicted to move units anywhere between the 130-140k figure, the ‘Problem‘ Rapper will top the competitive chart- exceeding expectations held by those who believed its leak would ruin its chances of selling.
Fortunately for him, that didn’t happen making him the latest Rap staple to dominate chart without a smash on the Billboard Hot 100- with fans opting to show their support buy purchasing his albums en masse while paying little to no attention to his featureless singles.
Here in the UK, the project sits atop iTunes Hip Hop albums chart while enjoying the #2 on the overall chart. This, likely to secure it a Top 5 when the market’s Official Charts roll through this Sunday.
