Wiz Khafila’s ‘Blacc Hollywood’ Tops Charts In This Week’s Album Sales (8/27/14)
Khalifa’s third major label album is his first to debut at No. 1. However, it’s the first one to not sell in the six figure range. Rolling Papers pushed over 200,000, while O.N.I.F.C. sold over 135,000. Blacc Hollywood debuts with 85,000 units.
The rest of the hip-hop landscape hasn’t quite had the same type of shine. Iggy Azalea is the lone artist from the genre in the Top 50. The New Classic moves up two spots in No. 16 with 11,906 sold. Of course, a good reason behind her success is how she has three songs on the Billboard Hot 100.
Elsewhere, Trey Songz’s sits at No. 24 with 9,635, while Michael Jackson’s Xscape climbs to No. 36 with 6,567. Lastly, John Legend’s Love in the Future moves to No. 41 by pushing 5,602 units and Pharrell G I R L drops to No. 47 — Legend’s old spot — with 5,009.
