On Friday 23 September the South African rapper Nasty C released his debut album ‘Bad Hair’ to raving reviews from fans. The record was released as a sixteen track free download on Audiomack featuring the likes of Cassper, Erick Rush and Riky Rick. And though the album seems to have been taken down from Audiomack now (it’s now available on iTunes), here we consider the impact of the record since release three days ago.
On Audiomack where it was first released it became the number one album of the day and week despite the fact that it was released on a Friday, the last day of the week. Furthermore it was named the 4th hottest album of the month and 33rd hottest of the year after just two days of release.
On iTunes, ‘Bad Hair’ peaked atop of the charts, at number one of the iTunes album chart. At the time of this writing the record was still claiming the top spot on the chart.
