Compton is the first studio album from Dr. Dre in 16 years hitting No. 2 on the Billboard charts and No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. I think it’s safe to say that the release of Straight Outta Compton, which brought in 56.1 million its opening weekend, helped with album sales. The album sold 295,000 units and has streamed 25 million times on Apple Music in its first week.
Compton is the third-largest selling album of 2015 behind Kendrick Larmar’s To Pimp A Butterfly and Drake’s If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late.
