A$AP Rocky has the No. 1 album on the Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart selling 139,000 units according to Nielsen SoundScan which has surprised many music industry analysts as the album has been leaked on the internet for over a month. Long.Live.A$AP was dropped on the internet unofficially in December and though it was a treat for fans to hear this widely anticipated album, a lot of people worried how the album would do in terms of sales. Looks like A$AP has some fans with dollars to spend because he was able to secure the No. 1 spot pretty easily. Though, it must be said, the No. 2 album on the chart is Kidz Bop 23 (they still make those?).
Congratulations A$AP! Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for the next one! Check out A$AP Rocky in Lana Del Rey’s video for National Anthem here.
