Kendrick Lamar's 'DAMN.' Scores Strongest Sales Week & Debut of 2017

Credit: hypebeast.com

Kendrick Lamar just scored yet another sizable victory. With his 2011 project Section.80 finally earning a gold plaque earlier this month, Lamar's DAMN. has just racked up the strongest sales week of 2017. As Billboard reports, the Compton rapper's latest studio album is now projected to sell between 530,000 and 550,000 equivalent album units. By comparison, Drake's latest major release, More Life, debuted with 505,000 units sold in its first week of sales. Once the totals are cemented, DAMN. will also end up giving Lamar his best sales week yet. While Drake's More Life was expected to hold this crown, it now looks like Kendrick Lamar will hold the title for the time being.

The Best Street Style on Instagram This Week

Streetwear is a notoriously difficult fashion category to pin down due to its unpredictable, fast-paced nature, as well as its ethos of being "more than just clothes." Unlike the high fashion realm where trends are outlined by runways and fashion week calendars, today's streetwear is influenced by a combination of real world streets and social media. In this new weekly series, we scavenge the depths of Instagram to bring you the best and most current streetwear outfits from around the world. Ranging from hyped looks to timeless fits, celebrity-verified accounts to that of your standard "urban youth," this selection hopes to offer some insight into what's happening in the menswear landscape beyond the fashion campaign pages. This week's selection sees a heavy dose of color and bold prints, with retro tracksuits, Kappa stripes and head-to-toe prints commencing warmer season styling. Footwear sees a mix of old (OG AJ1s and '90s Air Maxes), new (Balenciaga sock-inspired sneakers) and new-that-looks-old (Kanye's Calabasas and Raf Simons's Ozweego Bunny shoes).
