A$AP Rocky Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart

Harlem’s A$AP Rocky is starting 2013 with a bang. According to reports from Billboard, the rapper’s previously leaked debut Long.Live.A$AP sold 139,000 copies on its first week of release.

It’s the first debut effort from a rapper to top the chart since 2 Chainz’s Based On a T.R.U. Story, released on September 1st, 2012. Although Kendrick’s debut effort Good Kid, M.A.A.D City sold an impressive batch of 242,000 copies on the first week, it failed to reach number one. (Taylor Swift’s Red, released on the same week, sold 1.2 million copies.)

Currently, A$AP Rocky’s “F**kin’ Problems,” featuring guest appearances by Drake, 2 Chainz, and Kendrick Lamar, is enjoying top-five success on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, selling nearly 854,000 downloads. —XXL Staff (@XXL)
