Propaganda’s ‘Excellent’ Billboard Debut, Over 27,000 Units In the First Week
Published on October 12, 2012
Humble Beast Records is celebrating the successful debut of Propaganda’s new album, “Excellent,” which released to digital retailers on September 25th via Syntax Distribution, peaking at #4 on iTunes’s Hip-Hop chart and making a significant chart impact at Billboard.
“Excellent” debuted at #184 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart with nearly 3,000 albums sold. While an impressive statistic on it’s own, it’s even more notable when considering that more than 24,500 additional copies of the album were downloaded during the first week of release from the label’s own website, HumbleBeast.com, where fans were given the opportunity to pick up the album for free. These numbers are not included in the official tally. Without accounting for the label’s website downloads, the album still managed to debut at #7 on Billboard’s Gospel Albums chart, while claiming the #14 spot on the Christian Albums chart, #19 on the Rap Albums chart and #43 on the Independent Albums chart.
No stranger to the stage, Propaganda will hit the road again this fall, hosting and performing on the highly anticipated Unashamed Tour (www.unashamedtour.com) alongside KB, Tedashii, Lecrae, Trip Lee, Pro, Andy Mineo and Thi’sl. He’ll follow that with a tour of historic black colleges with Lecrae in early 2013. Propaganda has performed worldwide including tours in South Africa, Canada, United Kingdom and the USA, sharing the stage with such artists as Flyleaf, Skillet, POD, Newsboys, Third Day, Kirk Franklin, KJ-52, Rev Run and many more. Ever in demand, he has also been featured at high profile events such as the Catalyst Conference, DCLA, Legacy Conference and more.
