A$AP Rocky to Debut at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart
It looks as if last month’s leak of A$AP Rocky‘s debut LP, ‘Long.Live.A$AP,’ didn’t put much of a dent in his sales. The Harlem rapper’s effort is the No. 1 album in the U.S., according to early sales figures.
The collection moved an estimated 141,000 copies in its first week of release as reported by HITS Daily Double. Give or take a few thousands copies, that’s not a bad first week for the ‘Peso’ rapper.
Rocky’s ‘Long.Live.A$AP’ album boasts a few hit singles including ‘Goldie’ and ‘F—in Problems’ (featuring Drake, 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar). The latter song has been certified gold for 500,000 units shipped in the U.S.
The self-proclaimed “Dat Pretty Motherf—er” has a busy schedule ahead of him in 2013. In March, Rocky will rock the mic on the North American leg of Rihanna‘s Diamonds World Tour. The jaunt begins March 8 in Buffalo, N.Y., and finishes May 5 in Brooklyn, N.Y. Go cop your tickets now at Ticketmaster.com.
Congratulations A$AP Rocky!
