The first week numbers are in for both Action Bronson and Earl Sweatshirt's latest albums.
Last Monday (March 23), both Action Bronson and Earl Sweatshirt dropped new albums. A week later, we've got brand new Wale and Ludacris albums to focus on, but, in such a busy 2015, lets not forget about quality albums when they come our way.
Both Earl and Action debuted in the top 10, though neither was able to grab the top spot, which still belongs to Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly. Action Bronson's major label debut, Mr. Wonderful, debuted at #3 on the charts, selling nearly 40,000 copies (43,303 including streaming), and Earl's I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside came in at #8, selling just under 30,000 (33,020 with streams).
Earl's latest underperformed his previous album, Doris, which debuted at #5 with close to 50,000 copies sold. Though, Earl did little promotion for I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside, and he blames Sony for what he says was a totally botched release.
Do you think these numbers reflect the quality of both projects?
