J. Cole's 'K.O.D.' Album Secures No.1 Spot On Billboard 200 Chart
The surprise LP continues to perform.
Debuting at the number one spot, Cole’s latest album earned 397,000 equivalent album units to end last week, according to Nielsen Music. Additionally, K.O.D. received the biggest opening week for a rap artist since the release of Kendrick Lamar‘s D.A.M.N. late last year. While J. Cole’s album sits at the top of the chart now, there is a strong chance that it could be dethroned very soon by Post Malone‘s Beerbongs & Bentleys, which has received an unprecedented amount of positive responses since its release
This marks Cole’s fifth consecutive No. 1 Billboard album following 4 Your Eyez Only (2016), 2014 Forest Hills Drive (2014), Born Sinner (2013) and Cole World: The Sideline Story (2011).
