Chris Brown‘s new studio album 11:11 sees the R&B star once again in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200. Every single one of his projects have scored top 10 debuts, with 11:11 coming in at 9th. While it’s the lowest debut on the charts for an album in his career so far, it’s still a monumentally impressive achievement. It’s Brown’s first studio album since 2009’s Graffiti to debut outside the top 5, with that album turning up at number 7. The project sold 44k copies placing it above albums released this year from artists like Don Toliver, Jack Harlow, and Trippie Redd.
It also debuted above some other big rap albums that came out the same week. NBA Youngboy released his 4th album of 2023 Decided 2. The project landed the third highest first week sales of the 4 projects pushing 35k units in its first week. Meek Mill and Rick Ross also teamed up for a new collaborative album called Too Good To Be True. Their star-studded collaborative project sold just over 31k copies in its first week. All three projects were out-sold by new albums from K-pop group Stray Kids and country singer Chris Stapleton this week.
Chris Brown’s New Album Puts Him Back In The Top 10
Meek Mill already shared his thoughts on his new album’s first week sales following the early predictions. While some fans were disappointed by the numbers he and Rick Ross ended up with, he saw things differently. He saw the dip in sales as a worthwhile sacrifice for going outside the industry machine and making sure that he and Rick Ross own all of their music.
Chris Brown managed his sales numbers after surprise dropping his album a day early. He was originally planning on dropping the project on November 11, which is fittingly 11/11. But fans found the project released a day early on November 10. What do you think of the first week sales for new albums from Chris Brown, NBA Youngboy, Meek Mill, & Rick Ross?
