After selling 334,000 pure albums in the first week and giving it one of the biggest sales weeks this year, Drake and Future‘s WATTBA has reportedly sold 65,000 albums in week 2, an 81% decline in sales, one of the worst declines for a #1 album from a debut week to a second week in Hip Hop history.
Drizzy and Hendrix aren’t the only artist to ever have a huge first week in sales and fall off by the second week. Check out some other albums that dropped off extra hard in the second week:
