*UPDATE: Billboard, which is luckily owned by the same company that owns SoundScan, did some analysis on Troy’s album release and cleared up a couple details. Troy released his album on June 5th and the numbers below only reflect sales until June 7th, thus only showing three full days of sales. The physical copies were also not released until June 9th, so the 30 copies that registered were sold before street date, hence coming under the categorization of “street date violation” sales. Troy’s first official full week of sales will be tallied for the week that ends June 14th.
Troy Ave’s Major Without A Deal album, which dropped June 5th and features 50 Cent, Cam’ron, Jadakiss, and not Jay Z, dropped this past Friday, but the sales aren’t looking too good.
According to the above screenshot from Soundscan via this user on Twitter, it looks like Troy sold under 4,500 copies of his album. If you look even closer, it says only 30 hard copies were sold. If true, it’d make sense why the album didn’t show up on the HitsDailyDouble charts, as the 50th entry sold 5,400 copies.
In other record sales news, Lil Durk’s debut album did a solid 27k, while Dom Kennedy sold roughly 22,500 copies of his new LP.
