As we reported here, ‘Act Up’ performers City Girls had to act fast to rush release their highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘City on Lock,’ after an unexpected leak.
In doing so, however, they were not able to give the Quality Control set its due promo push – a predicament that’s undoubtedly been reflected in the project’s premiere week sales performance.
Industry analysts predicted the ‘Jobs’-led LP would clock in with less than 21,000 sold due to an abbreviated inaugural tracking week (as we reported here).
Now, with the final tally lifted, look inside to see just how right the projections were:
City Girls’ ‘City on Lock’
First Week Sales (SPS): 18,400
First Week Sales (Pure): 2,000
First Week Billboard 200 Chart Placement: #29
With the figures above, City Girls nab their highest first week sales to date as well as their first top 40 hit and highest placement ever on the Billboard 200.
