So it’s officially summer and all the mega media companies have declared the 30 best albums of 2017 so far Tuesday, so we decided to consolidate the list to our own 10 favorite albums of 2017 so far. Let’s get to it!
In our opinion, Khalid’s American Teen album comes in at no. 10. The debut of Khalid, the album debuted at no. 9 on the Billboard 200 with approximately 37,000 album equivalents in its first week.
To follow up, Kehlani’s Sweet Sexy Savage checks in at no. 9. Another debut, the album landed at no. 3 on the charts with just under 60,000 album equivalents in its first week.
After that, one of our favorites Rick Ross’ Rather You Than Me makes an appearance at no. 8 on the list. A late career resurgence, this album debuted at no. 3 on the charts with just over 100,000 album equivalents in its first week
And, Big Sean’s I Decided followed for the no. 7 spot. The emergence of Big Sean continues with his consecutive no. 1 album. The album moved just over 150,000 album equivalents in its first week.
Half way home, Joey Badass’ All Amerikkkan Badass claims the no. 6 spot. A Johny Shipes product, Badass remained consisted with his second album, moving just over 50,000 album equivalents in its first week.
Of course, Migos had to appear on the list, checking in at no. 5. It appears the Migos can do no wrong, obtaining a no. 1 album this year with approximately 131,000 album equivalents.
However, perhaps a bit of controversy at the no. 4 spot with the selection of Lil Yachty’s Teenange Emotion. The numbers aren’t what we expected, but he still managed to crack the top five with just under 50,000 album equivalents.
Barring down for our top three, Future’s HNDRXX lands at no. 3. Apart of a two week, two album roll out, we have only three words, percocet, molly, percocet.
With two spots left, and Drake and Kendrick Lamar still not on the list, there was controversy, but Drake’s More Life takes the no. 2 spot. While better than Views, the fact he had to release this project to abolish concerns of him falling off puts him at no. 2
Without further ado, our no. 1 spot on the list goes to Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. Lamar may have overtaken Drake for the spot pertaining to rap with this one.
