Big Sean is set to see his strongest first week sales to date with his third studio album “Dark Sky Paradise.”
With various reviews of the album touting it as his best work to date, early first week sales projections for Big Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise suggest the project is going to be the Detroit lyricist’s most successful opening commercially.
The G.O.O.D. Music emcee is slated to sell between 120,000 and 130,000 copies of Dark Sky Paradise in its first week in stores, according to Hits Daily Double. The site also reports that the project is estimated to do between 140,000 and 150,000 in sales plus streams.
This will mark Big Sean’s biggest first week sales to date. His 2011 effort Finally Famous sold 87,000 copies within the first seven days of its release while 2013’s Hall Of Fame moved 72,000 units.
Big Sean’s latest effort earned a 4 out of 5 rating from HipHopDX. Here’s what writer Eric Diep had to say about the project:
“It’s on his third studio album, Dark Sky Paradise, that listeners are seeing a fully formed emcee ready to seize the spotlight.”
