ScHoolBoy Q’s Oxymoron Tops Billboard Charts
Kendrick Lamar left some very large shoes for ScHoolBoy Q to fill after his debut album good kid m.A.A.d city took the industry by storm in 2012. The pressure had obviously gotten to Q as he reportedly had to re-record his album several times before he achieved the sound he desired. After much anticipation (and delays), Q released Oxymoron to the masses.
The album was hailed as a critical success as Q received rave reviews from multiple media outlets. And now, the Top Dawg Entertainment rapper can take great pride in knowing that his album has topped the Billboard 200 charts this week with 138,950 copies sold. That’s something that not even Kendrick Lamar can claim. But the rapper formally known as K Dot can take solace in knowing that his album has just crossed the 1.2 million plateau.
It’s a win-win for TDE.
The album beat out Kid Cudi‘s surprise release SATELLITE FLIGHT: The journey to Mother Moon, which sold just over 80,000 copies.
