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.
