Despite leaking a month prior to its release, A$AP Rocky’s LongLiveA$AP album debuts No. 1 on Billboard’s album charts. According to Nielsen SoundScan Rocky’s LP which includes appearances from Drake, Skrillex, Florence Welch, and Kendrick Lamar, sold 139,00 copies opening week. Quite a remarkable feat considering the circumstances, and it’s a testament to the fanbase A$AP Rocky has. While out in Paris for fashion week, Lord Flacko spoke with MTV News on the accomplishment.
