Nas Takes Billboard’s Top Spot As ”Life Is Good” Moves Close To 140k Copies In First Week
It’s been an up and down past couple of years for hip hop legend Nas, but all one would have to do is read the title of his latest album to find out how things are going for the Queens rapper these days.
Nas’ 10th studio album ”Life Is Good” has topped the Billboard Album Sales Chart this week as it moved close to 140k copies in it’s first week of availability.
With the success of his latest album, this marks the sixth time he’s reached the top spot. ”It Was Written”, ”The Firm”, ”I Am”, ”Hip-Hop Is Dead” and ”Untitled”.
In an interview with RapFix, Nas spoke on the next track he plans of shooting a video for,, ”Reach Out”.
“I got a record with Mary J. Blige that just gives you that feeling,” he said. “It just feels like early Mary J. Blige, early Nas. I want to shoot a video to that.”
The album features a track titled ”Bye Baby” that speaks on his failed marriage with Kelis in which Nas says he’s looking forward to ”making like a movie”.
The veteran rapper knows that we live in a visual culture now, and that it’s important to add context and market his work through channels like YouTube.
“I want to do a lot of videos to this album. It’s a video age. I want to do more than I’m known for doing.”
