Just in time for the holidays, there’s a few new albums available for purchase. Beyonce released her EP to her hit self entitled album, Iggy Azalea re-released her debut album, Eminem dropped a compilation album, while Rick Ross is back on the scene with “Hood Billionaire.”
While Beyonce’s numbers look strong, Iggy’s are disappointing considering she did just snag two AMAs.
Here’s the numbers via Hits Daily Double:
SHADYXV (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) 140-150k sales; 155-165k sales + streams
