Kid Cudi’s ‘Indicud’ Debuts at No. 2

Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi rages on the charts this week with his latest album Indicud, which enters at No. 2.

The third album from the Cleveland rapper debuts in the runner-up spot on the Billboard 200, selling 136,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

It marks Cudi’s highest debut yet and his second largest sales week following his 2010 album Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager, which moved 169,000 units in its opening week.

Indicud was originally scheduled for release on April 23, but arrived a week early following its premature leak. Earlier this month, Cudi made headlines after announcing his departure from G.O.O.D. Music.

A gracious Cudi thanked his fans for their support. “THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT WENT OUT AND SUPPORTED INDICUD!! I COULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS WITH OUT ANY OF YOU! WE DID IT!” he tweeted. “MAD LOVE TO @falloutboy AND THE HOMIE @petewentz AND CONGRATS ON KILLIN IT ONE MORE TIME! IM IN GOOD COMPANY AT THE TOP!”

The No. 1 spot goes to rock band Fall Out Boy, whose album Save Rock and Roll bows at No. 1 (154,000).

Elsewhere on the charts, Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience holds steady at No. 3 with 76,000 and Lil Wayne’s I Am Not a Human Being II sits at No. 8 (31,000).

    @Good Stuff, So? Tyler The Creator ‘Goblin’ album is a critically-acclaimed album and he only sold 45K in his first week and went on to sell only 230K as of April 2013. Tyga is a dope emcee & Hotel California is a good album. Hotel California was hardly promoted. Have you even heard the album? I’m sure you haven’t, so please shut the fuck up if you didn’t.

    Sincerely, A Tyga fan.

    @Trey, but you have to remember that Tyler the creator is an independent artist. Tyga is on a major label so his numbers shouldn’t be compared to Tylers.
