After 34 artists and 27 producers recorded in Atlanta over a 10-day span earlier this year for J. Cole‘s Dreamville Records’ latest compilation effort, ‘Revenge of the Dreamers III (ROTD3),’ it’s now debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
Garnering over 115,000 equivalent album units, 23,000 from album sales, the new 18-track album easily beats the series sequel (ROTD2), which peaked at number 29 in December 2015.
While speaking on collaborating with artists outside of his own label, Cole admits in the documentary, ‘Revenge,’ “When I meet other artists in the game, I really do fuck with them and have great conversations with them. But the outside world don’t know that, because I’m so secluded in a sense. And I realized that.”
