Mac Miller Debuts At Number One With "Blue Slide Park"
The indie act scores his first number one with his debut.
The album, which serves as his Rostrum Records debut, was initially expected to sell only 100,000 units, putting him in a higher bracket than anticipated. This makes Mac the first independent artist since Tha Dogg Pound topped the charts in 1995 to score a number one album in the first week of release.
Rostrum head honcho Benjy Grinberg previously spoke on the LP and how it's served as a learning experience. "We’ve learned a lot about the ins and outs of the majors and how different things operate [through working with Wiz Khalifa]," Grinberg says. "We try to apply those lessons to everything we do...I'm not on some sort of revolutionary [anti-major] kick. I just know there are better ways of doing things.”
