August Alsina is having a great start to his R&B career. The New Orleans native’s debut album, “Testimony,” has debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, according to Hits Daily Double. Furthermore, it debuted at No.1 on the R&B charts.
Released via NNTME/Def Jam Recordings, “Testimony” sold approximately 67,000 copies during its first week of sales. This comes as a surprise as the album was only projected to sell between 50,000 – 60,000 copies during week one.
The “Get Ya Money” singer went to Twitter to express his happiness. “#2 album in the country in any & every genre. #1 R&B album in the country. Lot more work to do, but we here now nigxa! & I thank you,” he wrote.
“Testimony,” released on April 15, includes hit singles “Make It Home” featuring Jeezy and his gold selling single “I Luv This Sh*t.”
