On Friday, the first posthumous album from DMX, Exodus, arrived on streaming platforms. Exodus came packaged with a lead single called “Hood Blues” featuring Griselda and a number of top-of-the-line features. Usher, Alicia Keys, Jay-Z, Nas, Swizz Beatz, The Lox and several others made their way onto the project. Just a few days after its release, the first sales projections have arrived.
Hits Daily Double has reported that Exodus is expected to sell anywhere between 28,000 and 32,000 units during its first week. Of that projected figure, approximately 13,000 are expected to come from pure album sales.
If this projection holds true, it would be a marked improvement from his last release, Undisputed. The 2012 release featured Andreena Mill, Dani Stevenson, Rachel Taylor and Kashmir. Swizz Beatz and Dreamville’s Elite provided production behind the scenes. Ultimately, the project sold 19,000 copies during its first week.
Elsewhere on the charts, Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album is expected to stay on top of the charts for a second straight week. Following right behind Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift is projected to sell anywhere between 110,000 and 139,000 copies of Evermore this week. Rounding out a string of noteworthy projections, the anniversary edition of Juice WRLD’s Goodbye & Good Riddance will sell a projected 30,000 copies this week.
