UPDATE 2: The final numbers for the final week of 2019 are in. The project sold 141,740 copies first week with 65,688 of that number coming from pure sales. This puts it comfortably at #1.
UPDATE (Dec. 30): The D2C totals for the album are now available which has increased the projections considerably. JACK BOYS is now pacing at about 120-145k in the first week which ensures a #1 spot for the compilation this week.
Travis Scott has successfully launched the compilation album JACK BOYS to showcase artists on his Cactus Jack Roster which includes “Mo Bamba” hitmaker Sheck Wes, Don Toliver, Octavian and Luxury Tax.
The first week sales for the 7-song project are now out. According to HDD, the set is expected to move 65-75k copies in the first week but since their merch bundle is doing quite well, don’t be surprised to see it touching 100k. This number should put Travis and the boys at the number 1 spot of the Billboard 200 next week.
JACK BOYS features guest appearances from Quavo, Offset, Young Thug, Pop Smoke, ROSALÍA & Lil Baby. On Friday, the crew released a short film and a music video for the song ‘Gang Gang’.
