Yo Gotti, Young Dolph, & BJ The Chicago Kid 1st Week Sales

This week, we saw two major label releases and one of the biggest independent rappers in the game release albums and we’re here to break down the sales figures for them. First, Yo Gotti‘s new album The Art Of Hustle debuts at #2 with 44,576 albums sold (58,989 with streams). You’d expect bigger numbers for Gotti thanks to ‘Down In The DM’ and due to the fact that his last album sold about 48,000 albums first week, but it’s still a solid showing.

Young Dolph had a nice debut with his album King Of Memphis, which is a slight shade at Yo Gotti. The independent, digital-only release sold 8,646 copies first week (10,989 with streams), good enough to debut at #23. With a few potential urban hits packed on the album, expect Dolph to continue his run throughout this the spring and into the summer.

BJ The Chicago Kid released his debut album on Motown Records In My Mind to modest sales. The album debuted at #28 with 7,865 copies sold (9,996 with streams), which is pretty disappointing but BJ has to be proud of the body of work he presented and hope that post-release marketing is on point.
