J. Cole finally dropped his highly anticipated fourth album titled 4 Your Eyez Only. Since the release of 4 Your Eyez Only, J. Cole has pushed his numbers for his last album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive.
The album was released Friday, December 9th, and the numbers are ridiculous. 4 Your Eyez Only already has 550,000 units in its first week, and it hasn’t even been a full week yet; 360,000 to 380,000 will be in traditional sales. These numbers have been beaten by only 2 other albums: Drake’s Views with 1.04 million units and Beyoncé’s Lemonade with 653,000 units. 2014 Forest Hills Drive received only 371,000 units in December 2 years ago.
Not only did 4 Your Eyez Only surpass 2014 Forest Hills Drive’s numbers from 2014, the album got these numbers with no press and no features on the album.
