Kid CuDi's "WZRD" Surpasses 70,000 Copies Sold In Its First Week

Kid CuDi and Dot Da Genius's rock album took the top new album spot on the charts with over 70,000 copies sold.

Kid CuDi may have taken issue with his label supposedly under shipping physical copies of his latest album WZRD to stores, but he may less reason to complain now that the total first week CD sales are being calculated.

According to a recent report from Hits Daily Double, CuDi and Dot Da Genius's rock album WZRD debuted at the number three spot in its first week behind Adele's 21 and Whitney Houston's Greatest Hits. The album reportedly sold 70,499 copies, topping Tyga's debut album Careless World: The Rise of the Last King by nearly 40,000 copies in its second week on the charts.

In addition to the album's strong first week, ThisBeatGoes indicates that WZRD is projected to be the only album debuting this week to sell over 15,000 copies. WZRD previously hit the number one spot on iTunes on the first day of its release.

DX will keep you updated once official SoundScan data is released.

    Honestly, the people who've said this album was "garbage" or said that this isn't anything like the old Cudi, hasn't really heard the album. Did you guys listen to "The Dream Time Machine", "Upper Room", "Efflictim", "Teleport 2 Me" and "Live & Learn" yet??? This was a pretty solid album. People just need to be a bit more open minded to music.

    Cudi took his music left... Indie. And it's nice. It's not a hip-hop album... haters keep hating. Cudi is an Artist.

    I LOVE this record and I admire artists that are willing to step out of their comfort zone and try something different. The term recording artist is misleading...because all too often people putting out records are not ARTISTS at all. These guys not only stepped out of their box, but they fucking kicked down and built a new one!!! Props to dat!
