Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, has made its way back to the charts. Which, I might add, is a huge accomplishment because the project dropped around eight years ago. But, when you look at how many sales the album scored without streams, this proclamation comes as no surprise. According to Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart, the project sold 8,000 copies in the U.S. for the week ending December 31. Currently, Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is at ninth place on the charts as well.
Good Kid, M.A.A.D City made its debut in October of 2012. The Top Album Sales charts commenced in 1991 when Billboard started their partnership with Nielsen Music, formerly known as SoundScan. The chart positions on Billboard’s Top Album Sales is based on the number of albums sold without streams.
