J. Cole Scores His First Million-Selling Album with '2014 Forest Hills Drive'

  /  09.11.2015

J. Cole just cracked a million in sales for the first time. According to Billboard, his third album 2014 Forest Hills Drive sold 6,000 copies over the weekend, bringing it to a total of 1.004 million.

The album initially debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in December 2014 with 371,000 copies. It went on to place five singles on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart—”Apparently,” “Wet Dreamz,” “No Role Modelz,” “Fire Squad,” and “A Tale of 2 Citiez.”

The new stat is strictly a sales figure and does not account for streams. In March, Forest Hills Drive became the first hip-hop album with no features to ship one million copies.

His previous album, 2013’s Born Sinner, has sold 747,000 to date while his 2011 debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story moved 772,000 units.

J. Cole is currently making an appearance on the Adult R&B Songs airplay chart for his feature on Janet Jackson’s comeback single “No Sleeep,” which has spent three non-consecutive weeks atop the list.
