UPDATE 2 (July 2): The final numbers are in. Tyler tops the charts with 177,478 copies sold first week with a whopping 57,257 coming from pure sales. Doja Cat debuts just behind him at #2, selling 109,461 copies of Planet Her first week with 11,024 coming from pure sales.
UPDATE (June 29): The first week sales projections for both sets have increased. Tyler, The Creator is now looking at 185k while Doja Cat is projected at 110k. Stay tuned for the final numbers later this week.
While Doja is a creative artist, she still banks upon hit singles to truly deliver and she got a good start with her smash ‘Kiss Me More’ featuring SZA. Tyler, on the other hand, is an alternative rap artist where we don’t expect any radio hits. His album Call Me If You get Lost features Lil Wayne, Pharrell, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Uzi Vert, NBA Youngboy and more.
