J. Cole Overshadows Wale and Outsells Kanye West

j cole ti swizzz

I am so proud of J. Cole according to Billboard.com J. Cole’s “Born Sinner” claims the No. 1 spot to mark his second chart-topper after his 2011 debut “Cole World: The Sideline Story.” With 58,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan, “Born Sinner” knocks Wale’s “The Gifted” from the top spot and surpasses Kanye West’s “Yeezus” in cumulative sales. Cole’s sophomore set has now sold 439,000 copies compared to West’s 431,000 overall.

The sales difference between Cole’s set and Kanye’s latest could be due to the penetration of the artists’ singles. Cole’s “Power Trip,” featuring Miguel, is in its third week atop R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay while follow-up “Crooked Smile,” featuring TLC, breaks into the top 20 (21-19) on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. West’s post-album-release “Black Skinhead,” on the other hand, has yet to enter an airplay chart and falls 28-33 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. I mean was there ever any doubt? Those numbers need to be updated by Billboard because Cole is already at like 520,000 copies at this point in time if not more. Wale’s attitude is costing him, and Kanye needs to try again. So happy for my fellow Aquarian… Silent killers…

    Congrats to J. Cole! However, he has not sold millions of records and he is not crossover nor an international star. J. Cole was in a picture standing next to JayZ and Dame Dash. Dame didn’t even look up and had no interest in J. Cole, the picture is hilarious. J. Cole needs more albums before he is on anyone’s list. Wale sucks!!

    I love J.cole he had the best album out of all them. Kanye album was straight trash.Wale did have a couple of good songs on his album but it wasn’t a fluid album and Wale isn’t likable.
