Kid Cudi’s ‘Indicud’ Lands at No. 2 on Billboard Chart
Cudi's third album moved 136,000 copies this past week, which is not bad considering he's been trying to get his music played on the radio. In comparison, A$AP Rocky's 'Long.Live.A$AP' album debut at No. 1 back in January, with 140,000 copies sold.
This marks Cudi's highest debut yet and his second largest sales week following his 2010 LP, 'Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager,' which pushed 169,000 copies in its debut week.
"THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT WENT OUT AND SUPPORTED INDICUD!! I COULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS WITH OUT ANY OF YOU! WE DID IT!" Cudi tweeted to his fans. "I LOVE YOU ALL, AND IM SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE SUCH LOYAL FANS THAT CARE FOR ME AND WANT ME TO WIN. VERY VERY HAPPY!"
The 'King Wizard' rapper then added, "Its a good day today. We all should be celebrating! Rage fo me :). "#1 Hip Hop album, #2 in the country. Old blue eyes my n---a "I did it my way" -- Hov."
Back on the charts, Justin Timberlake's 'The 20/20 Experience' is still posting big numbers. The collection is sitting comfortably at No. 3 with 76,000 copies sold. The album is well on its way to reaching double platinum status.
Congrats to Kid Cudi for his impressive debut at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.
