G.O.O.D. Music’s ‘Cruel Summer’ Debuts at No. 2

Cruel Summer

G.O.O.D. Music may be at the top of their game, but they’ll have to settle for No. 2. The hip-hop collective’s long-awaited compilation Cruel Summer debuts in the runner-up spot on this week’s Billboard 200 chart.

The album from Kanye West and crew sold 205,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The project has spawned the singles “Mercy,” “New God Flow,” and “Clique,” with contributions from Big Sean, Common, Teyana Taylor, Pusha T, R. Kelly, Ma$e, and more.

On the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, the set enters at No. 1 and becomes the second various artists collection to top the chart this year, following Maybach Music Group’s Self Made, Vol. 2.

However, G.O.O.D. Music was no match for Pink, whose latest The Truth About Love opened with 280,000 units, becoming her first No. 1.

    I love Pink and all, but there’s no way she sold 280,000 first week with that single she has out. I honestly think Cruel Summer sold more but politics are always involved.

    Your excuse Karruche is dumb! Politics has nothing to do with it. Good Music is #2 and Pink’s single had more AirPlay than any single from the Good Music CD. That’s why she sold more!

    Karruche Will Never Be Rihanna Reply:

    @Joe,

    Yes Karruche is dumb. Im glad you agree with me. If you were more educated on my screen name, then you’d know what you said is even dumber. Like I said I love Pink and I have her new CD, but her latest stuff is no where near as good as “Mizundastood” or “I’m Not Dead.” Those are classic albums that I still play til this day. But “The Truth About Love” is a bit immature and loud for my tastes. I think the Cruel Summer album was a better effort. Just my opinion. You dont have to like it, just respect it.

    The reason why P!NK sold 280,000 copies is because she’s P!NK and she deserves it! She is one of the most consistent and most respected pop artists of the past 10 years. I’m glad she was able to earn her first #1 album and highest first weeks sales of her career (also she has the 3rd best first week sales of this year). The GOOD compilation is sort of all over the place if you ask me. Some of the tracks are hot but some I could do without. Good for them though, over 200K for a complilation album is major.

    Karruche Will Never Be Rihanna Reply:

    @Kyle, I so did not know that was her first #1 album! Thats surprising given her past stuff is really good, even better than the new album. I just think Cruel Summer had more thought put into it, where Pink’s new stuff sounds a little like generic shoutty pop.

    Kyle Reply:

    @Karruche Will Never Be Rihanna, yeah I like her new album a lot but it’s sort of generic in the sense that it’s like a continuation of her last album, “Funhouse.” To this day, “Missundaztood” stands as her best album. It was her breakout and did huge things for her.

    P!nk will live 50 years from now on like an artist and G.O.O.D. Music maybe 20. This is why she earn No. 1 spot

    @Danny P, Kanye West is a hip hop legend and a music legend. Kanye West is one of the greatest producers in hip hop history. Kanye West is one of the top 30 greatest producers in hip hop history. Kanye West is one of the top 100 greatest rappers in hip hop history. Kanye West is one of the top 10 greatest mainstream rappers of all-time. Kanye West has won over 18 Grammy Awards and made 5 platinum-selling, solo albums. Kanye West actually made 6 platinum-selling albums if you include Watch The Throne and not include Cruel Summer.

    Kanye West has always been more popular than Pink. Kanye West has always been a better music artist than Pink. Pink is a very, good pop music artist, and one day Pink will be a music legend. Pink has never been more popular than Madonna, Lady GaGa, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Brittany Spears. Those ladies have sold more records and left a bigger impact on pop music. I will agree with you that GOOD Music will probably only be relevant for 20 years at the most. I believe Pink will be relevant for about 10 or 20 more years, but I serioulsy doubt Pink will be around 50 years from now. Pink deserved the Number 1 spot with her new solo album, but it took several years in the music industry for Pink to get her first Number 1 album.

    The GOOD Music-Cruel Summer album is a good album, but not a great album. Hip hop group complilation albums like GOOD Music-Cruel Summer don’t always sell well. For GOOD Music-Cruel Summer album to enter the Billboard Charts at Number 2 and sell 205,000 copies is a major success, considering that most albums nowadays have a harder time going platinum and gold. I believe if Kanye West’s 6th solo album came out in 2012, it would sell more than Pink’s new album. Kanye West has a much bigger fanbase than GOOD Music combine together.

    The difference between pink and artist like Madonna, Rihanna and Lady Gaga is that she can actually sing and that’s why she’s less popular. For some reason our country buys into crap music and not actual good music (for the exception of Adele). P!nk outsold Kanye and thank god for that because he needs pushed down a peg or two. P!nk will be here for another 50 years. If she’s just now getting her first number one album then that means she has many things to earn in the future!!!
