J. Cole's Born Sinner Goes No. 1

It was surprising that Jay would have allowed J. Cole to change his release date to compete with 'Ye's Yeezus. It seemed like sales suicide. But in its third weeks on the charts, instead of a downward flow, Born Sinner moved up and took the No. 1 spot. Only 13% of Billboard's No. 1's have made a power trip like that.
