Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy sold an impressive first-week sales for TM-103, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Jeezy’s fourth full-length, ‘Thug Motivation: Hustlerz Ambition,’ sold 233,000 units, collecting the No. 3 record on Billboard’s 200 chart.
Jeezy surpassed expectations with ‘TM103,’ which was released on Tuesday (Dec. 20), and projected to move approximately 200,000 sales in its first week, despite lengthy delays. It’s Jeezy’s third highest-selling LP, following his last release, ‘The Recession,’ which debuted at No. 1 with 260,000 sold back in 2008.
Jeezy also narrowly edged out a surging Justin Bieber‘s No. 4 ‘Under the Mistletoe,’ which sold 225,000. ‘Thug Motivation: Hustlerz Ambition’ features Ne-Yo, T.I., Snoop Dogg and the Jay-Z and Andre 3000-featured single ‘I Do,’ and is in stores now.
