Check The 20 Biggest Hip Hop Album First Weeks Of 2017

By HHL JT

More than any other musical genre, Hip Hop albums are judged by their first week sales. It's part of the competitive nature of the game

Below are the top 20 biggest Hip Hop first weeks of 2017. 

1. Kendrick Lamar DAMN. 610K SPS
2. Drake More Life 505K
3 Eminem Revival 265K
4 Logic Everybody 251K

5 Big Sean I Decided 156K
6 DJ Khaled Grateful 151K
7 Future FUTURE 139K
8 Gorillaz Humanz 135K

9 Lil Uzi Vert Luv Is Rage 2  126K
10 G-Eazy The Beautiful & Damned 122K
11. Migos Culture 121K
12. Future HENDRXX 117K

13. Bryson Tiller True to Self 116K
14. Tyler, the Creator Flower Boy 106K
15. 2  Chainz Pretty Girls Like Trap Music 106K
16. Meek Mill Wins & Losses 102K

17. Rick Ross Rather You Than Me  100K
18. XXXTENTACION 17 86K
19. 21  Savage Issa Album 75K
2o. Future & Young Thug Super Slimey  75K

As you can, see Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. is first and Drake's playlist More Life is second. It's a step down for Drake, who had the biggest first weeks of 2016 and 2015 with Views and If You're Reading This It's Too Late.

JAY-Z's 4:44 would likely have been somewhere in 2017's top five, but we don't have good numbers for it because it debuted exclusively on TIDAL. The Travis Scott-Quavo joint album Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho dropped this week and is projected to make the top 20 with between 95K -120K SPS.

Any surprises on the list?
