Kid Cudi’s first week sales projections are in for the rapper-singer’s most recent album, SATELLITE FLIGHT: The journey to Mother Moon.
SATELLITE FLIGHT, a surprise release from Kid Cudi, is expected to sell approximately 90,000 units in its first week, according to Billboard. It is expected to be the week’s second-highest charting album, falling behind ScHoolboy Q’s Oxymoron.
Cudi’s FLIGHT is only available on iTunes, as the project was released exclusively through this retailer as a surprise Tuesday (February 25). Cudi’s FLIGHT release is reminiscent of Beyonce’s rollout for the singer’s self-titled 2013 album, which was also only available through iTunes.
If Cudi sells 90,000 units of SATELLITE FLIGHT, the album’s first week sales figure falls far below his previous album, Indicud’s first week total. Indicud, released in 2013, sold approximately 136,000 units in its first week.
SATELLITE FLIGHT: The journey to Mother Moon was announced via Twitter, when Cudi shared the following link to the album.
