It would seem that history is repeating itself once again.
Indeed, after November 2010 saw Kanye West‘s ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ outsell Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Pink Friday’ in its first week, only to be outsold by that very album (and watch it hit #1 weeks later), West is now gearing up to watch the same thing happen again….only this time, with Roc Nation‘s J.Cole.
Before they enjoy similar success in their domestic market this week, Kanye West & J.Cole have found themselves dominating the British charts this week, soaring to the top with their respective albums!
Indeed, just days after the birth of his first child with talent devoid diva Kim Kardashian, the hitmaker saw another of his creations projected to top Billboard charts!
With ‘Yeezus’ set to see its name atop the Billboard 200 upon its refreshing next week, the happy couple have revealed the name set to be atop the birth certificate of their newborn daughter. See baby Kimye’s real name below:
…and the sales predictions for this week’s album releases are in.
That’s right, after dropping on June 18th, stats pulled from sales generated by Kanye West, J.Cole and Kelly Rowland‘s respective releases now paint a picture of what they are to sell in total come next week.
It’s a day many Hip-Hop enthusiasts had etched in their minds, for two of the genre’s most pronounced titans go head-to-head in a bid for chart glory.
The initial “owner” of the date is controversial Kanye West, whose ‘Yeesuz’ album has provoked pandemonium of all varieties. Keen to embrace the art of competition Roc Nation’s Cole actually moved up the release of his sophomore set ‘Born Sinner’ so as to go toe-to-toe with West – a move many have hailed for its bravery (and audacity).
And while the real “winner” is arguably fans of Hip-Hop, we -as ever-want to plough through the smoke and mirrors to find out which releases the masses are truly “here” for. Forget the leaks, the babies, and the media spin and let us know…
