J. Cole ‘KOD’ First Week Sales
The album is already on course for a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart, and is also set to secure 2018’s biggest streaming week for an album. According to Billboard, the critically acclaimed effort is predicted to rack in about 320 million streams in the week ending April 26. These figures would also secure KOD the third-biggest streaming week in history.
The only other albums that would surpass KOD’s predicted streaming numbers are Kendrick Lamar’s Damn, which earned 340.6 million streams in the week ending April 20, 2017; and Drake’s More Life, which generated 384.8 million streams in the week ending March 30, 2017.
