macmillerWMWTSOTo no one’s surprise, Mac Miller did not repeat his chart-topping performance on the same week that Kanye West dropped “Yeezus” and J. Cole “Born Sinner.”

Kanye hit No. 1 on Billboard with 328,800 (his sixth chart-topping album but lowest debut yet), Cole was a close second at 297,922 and Miller was third at 101,795 (down from “Blue Slide Park’s” chart-topping 145k).

Miller, under his singing alter-ego Larry Fisherman, tweeted “I did 100k by just making some cool music that everyone can vibe to. The revolution is here.”

As for the critical numbers, Kanye also earned the highest Metacritic score with an 85 (out of 100), followed by Miller at 75 and Cole at 73.

Miller’s Space Migration Tour is in Texas this week and on its way to Stage AE on July 12.
