Roughly a year after appearing on XXL’s second Freshmen cover, Kid Cudi is releasing his debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day.
While Cudi’s buzz had seemingly fizzled as “Day ‘N’ Nite” lost steam on the charts, Mr. Solo Dolo has experience quite a boost in recent weeks. In addition to appearing on “Already Home,” a standout cut off Jay-Z’s The Blueprint 3, Cudi joined Hov during his Answer The Call concert in New York’s Madison Square Garden this past Friday (September 11). Cudi also made appearances on Late Night with David Letterman and eulogized DJ AM at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Cudi’s recent streak of high profile appearances could very well give him the boost he needs to post some solid numbers. XXL‘s staff took a wild guess at Cudi’s first week numbers.
Jackpot: Asher numbers
Travis: Asher numbers
Matty B: 40k
Miss One: 64k
Rob the Music Ed: 55k
What do you think? How many units will Cudi sell in its first week?
