Here’s How Much French Montana’s ‘Jungle Rules’ Album Sold First Week
Fans are ecstatic to finally get their hands on French Montana's highly-anticipated sophomore album, Jungle Rules, and the first week sales are finally in. The "Unforgettable" rapper debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, having moved 52,000 units, 16,000 of which are traditional album sales.
According to Billboard, the project's debut is the highest of French's career on the chart so far, as his first studio album, Excuse My French, debuted at No. 4 on the album chart and sold 56,000 copies during the first week of its release.
The Bronx native has had some tough competition for his first week, as JAY-Z's recently released 4:44 album nabbed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 album charts for the second straight week, selling 87,000 copies, followed by Kendrick's DAMN. It turns out Hov is a French fan, as Montana revealed that "Famous" is Jay's favorite song off of Jungle Rules during his recent interview with Angie Martinez.
Jungle Rules contains 18 tracks and features the likes of Swae Lee, The Weeknd, Max B, Pharrell, Young Thug and more. French's hit single, "Unforgettable," currently sits in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and is making its way up the charts each week thanks to the viral #UnforgettableDanceChallenge. It's by far the biggest song of his career to date.
