Final Numbers Are In: Jhené Aiko’s ‘Chilombo’ Brings Best First Week Sales of Her Career

Published: Monday 16th Mar 2020 by Rashad

March 6 brought with it the highly anticipated release of Jhené Aiko‘s third album, ‘Chilombo.’

Led to chart battle by singles ‘Triggered,’ ‘None of Your Concern (featuring boyfriend Big Sean), and ‘P*$$Y Fairy,’ the star-studded LP  – which also counted some of Urban music’s biggest names like Nas, H.E.R., John Legend, Ab-Soul, Ty Dolla $ign, Future, Miguel, and more as guests – was an out-of-the-box critical success as it received thumbs up from some of the industry’s most recognized critics.

Originally predicted to see that fanfare mirrored commercially to the tune of 90,000 units shifted its first week (as we first reported here), that figure almost doubled when receipts were counted for the singer’s tour bundle which allowed one copy of ‘Chilombo’ to accompany any ticket purchased for her forthcoming ‘Magic Hour Tour’ (click here for dates).

The result?  Aiko debuted on this week’s Billboard 200 with the highest first week sales of her career. Details inside:

Jhené Aiko’s ‘Chilombo’

First Week Sales (SPS):  152,000

First Week Sales (Pure): 38,000
First Week Chart Placement:  #2
The #2 premiere of ‘Chilombo’ is also the highest chart placement of the 32-year-old’s career, surpassing her previous personal best – 2014’s ‘Souled Out’ (which bowed at #3 that year).

    Wow Jhene slayed Uzi and Meg in pure sales.

    SN: Saying 38K pure sales was a slay just 5 years ago would have been laughable. I remember when Ciara was dragged to hell for doing 38K and debuting in the lower regions of the Billboard 200.

    Congrats to all.

      jhene was the only one of the three (jhene, mts, and luz) who had a tour bundle though. if she didn’t have that she would have sold significantly less
