Kendrick Lamar Hangs on to Top Spot on U.S. Album Chart

Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp a Butterfly” proved that it still has plenty of wind beneath its wings by maintaining the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 album sales chart for the week ending March 29, according to data from Nielsen music.

Lamar’s album moved 123,000 copies, down 66% from the previous week’s impressive debut. The rapper revealed to MTV that his album was originally titled “Tu Pimp a Caterpillar” as a nod to Tupac, but in the end elected to swap in the “Butterfly” to evoke the “brightness of life.”
