It’s been a good week for Kendrick Lamar. First he drops a verse on Big Sean’s “Control” record that sent the internet into a frenzy, and now his debut CD has officially sold over one million copies.
Kendrick’s Good Kid M.A.A.D. City release was certified platinum for shipping over a million copies, but this week he sold an additional 9,000 copies of the album. That spike in sales pushed him over the top to actually sell a millie.
According to SoundScan, Kendrick jumped up from #52 to #36 on the charts. More than likely this was due to the fact that his name was all over social media last week.
