UPDATE (Aug. 13): King’s Disease 2 moves 57k copies in the first week for a top 5 debut.
Previous story (Aug. 10):
This past Friday, Nas released his new album King’s Disease 2 which came with just a week’s notice. Just like the first one it’s produced entirely by Hit-Boy and just like the first one, fans are calling it some of the rapper’s best work in years.
The last one was GRAMMY Award winning, so we’ll see if the sequel can have some of the same commercial success. Of course, that starts with sales.
Now, some first week sales projections are out for the album. It is currently estimated to sell 52k copies first week with 16k coming from pure sales. This is a slight jump up from the first album which sold around 47k first week, so it can definitely be considered a success.
We’ll update you if things change later in the week. King’s Disease 2 features guest appearances from Lauryn Hill, Eminem, YG, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Blxst and more.
