Charts Chartin’ – Big Sean’s “Dark Sky Paradise” Is Way Up On The Charts! Posted by Haley • March 3, 2015

On Feb. 24, 2015, Big Sean released his third studio album, Dark Sky Paradise. Upon release, the star-studded album made its way to the top of the charts in a number of countries, including the United States and Canada.

Kid Rock also dropped an album, titled “First Kiss” on Feb. 24. Even after attempting to make himself relevant in the news this past week, with his misogynist Beyoncé-related comments, his album failed to top the charts this week (Godisreal.gif)
