What you say Cole ain’t hot? According to Hits Daily Double, Jermaine’s debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story has sold an estimated 217,324 copies in its first week.
If the figure holds up, this will be the highest solo hip-hop debut this year. Congrats to the entire Roc Nation and Dreamville teams. Final tally comes tomorrow, but for now, Cole, the floor is yours.
So many people to stunt on, fighting the urge to be spiteful. This moment is too important for that. Just want to say THANK YOU.
Thanks to yall, we shook the game up. No chart topping single, just 2 years of hard work, great music and real ass fans. #1 album. Thanks to every fan that held me down, every friend, every blog, magazine, tv, radio station, dj’s and pd’s, I feel like we ALL won
UPDATE: Final number via SoundScan: 217,825
