Meek Mill’s ‘Dreams and Nightmares’ Debuts at No. 2

Meek Mill

Meek Mill weathered the storm and came out on top. The Maybach Music MC claims the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 with his debut Dreams and Nightmares.

The Philly rapper’s album sold 165,000 in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Led by the singles “Amen” and “Young & Gettin’ It,” the project also enters at No. 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Rap Albums charts.

Dreams and Nightmares was released a day after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast, closing many stores in the Tri-State area, which may have contributed to the lower-than-expected numbers. But Meek wasn’t concerned about the potential loss of sales.

“My focus wasn’t on stores being closed,” he said. “I had a packed house, filled with my family, making sure they were good during this storm.”

Kendrick’s debut good kid, m.A.A.d city slides 2-5 in its second week (63,000), while Taylor Swift remains queen of the charts, moving an additional 344,000 units of Red.

    @Jay, Hating on a country singer, really? Is this what’s hot in the streets now? She has dedicated fans who support her buy purchasing, not bootlegging. More hip-hop “fans” need to take note.

    without the storm this guy would’ve moved something like 250k. he has a bigger fan base than kendrick (im a kendrick fan and actually bought his album in London)so he would’ve deffo sold more

    @MmmHmm, 2 Chainz would have got #2 also if his album had came out in a 2-3 week proximity to Taylor Swift’s. She sold 1,200,000 the first week, and 344,000 this week which is still more than any other rap album sold first week this year
