Once A$AP's album "releases" I don't doubt it'll be a top 10 on BillBoard. Love so many of the songs on that album already

perfect.

.

the bar for mainstream hip-hop has already been set with LLA. great album. beats are top notch.

really happy for The Weeknd

considering that all of them are free albums readily available online, selling 500k is ridiculously impressive.
