“King’s Disease” recaptured the throne later Friday morning, however, and it remains atop the chart as of 12:30PM ET.
“Famous Friends” is now #2, and Barbra Streisand’s new “Release Me 2” is #3.
Nas’ new “King’s Disease II” is making an immediate impact on the US iTunes store.
The album began soaring up the store’s all-genre sales chart shortly after its release at midnight late Thursday/early Friday. It ultimately reached #1, and it remains atop the listing as of press time at 1:50AM ET.
Billie Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever,” which ruled the chart this past week, is now #2 on the listing.
Barbra Streisand’s new “Release Me 2” follows at #3, ahead of Chris Young’s new “Famous Friends” at #4 and Prince’s “Welcome 2 America” at #5.
The iTunes sales chart tends to be volatile early Friday morning, so some of the aforementioned positions could change in the coming minutes and hours.
