Action Bronson’s “Mr. Wonderful” Debuts with ~44K Sales

While it did not come close to dethroning Kendrick Lamar’s reigning leader “To Pimp a Butterfly,” Action Bronson’s “Mr. Wonderful” did register as this past week’s best-selling newcomer.

“Mr. Wonderful” achieved what Nielsen reports as 43,564 traditional first-week sales. Best among new releases, that represents the week’s third-strongest pure sales figure. Only the aforementioned “Butterfly” (~107,000) and the “Empire” soundtrack (~48,000) achieved higher sales figures during the recently concluded tracking week.

With Track Equivalent Albums (10 single sales = 1 album sale) and Streaming Equivalent Albums (1500 single streams = 1 album sale), “Mr. Wonderful” claimed a first week consumption total of just under 49,000 units. That earned the album a #7 debut on the revamped Billboard 200.

“Kidz Bop 28,” which earned a first week unit count of 40,000, was the only other newcomer in the weekly top ten. It appears at #10 on this week’s Billboard 200.
