Kanye West & Kid Cudi ‘Kids See Ghosts’ First Week Sales Projections

11 June 2018

Kanye West was in a "sunken" place and addicted to opioids a year ago but he has successfully turned that around to release two back to back albums.

In 2004, Kanye West's debut album, The College Dropout, peaked in the second spot on the Billboard 200 chart. It unfortunately doesn't look that way.

According to first-week sales projections reported by HitsDailyDouble, Kids See Ghosts is expected to move between 100,000 and 110,000 album equivalent units-55,000 to 60,000 of which will be from traditional sales.

West returned Friday with yet another seven-track album, "Kids See Ghosts", a collaboration with his protege Kid Cudi. Ye's 208,000 equivalent album units were also good for the fifth biggest week of 2018, behind only Post Malone's Beerbongs & Bentleys (461,000 units), J. Cole's KOD (397,000), Justin Timberlake's Man Of The Woods (293,000), and Cardi B's Invasion Of Privacy (255,000).

The highly anticipated album premiered Thursday night during a listening session in southern California. The seven song project features Pusha T and Mos Def aka Yasiin Bey as the main contributors but none of them are credited on the track list.

You can stream Kids See Ghosts now on all major streaming services, including Apple Music/iTunes.
