Last night, the Miami Heat captured the NBA (National Basketball Association) championship with a win over the San Antonio Spurs. Following the game, the team celebrated their victory with an after party and you can check out some of the footage below. You'll hear a lot of French Montana. In addition, following the game, the celebration in their locker room was aired on TV and Montana's "Ain't Worried About Nothin" was played.
French Montana has released the visual for "I Told Em," from his new album, "Excuse My French." It features cameos from Tommy "Tiny" Lister, known for playing Deebo in the "Friday" movie series, and Chinx Drugz. Watch below.
On Sunday, for the 20th year, HOT 97 hosted Summer Jam. Among the performers was French Montana, who brought out Lil' Wayne, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, Ace Hood and Chinx Drugz. Watch some footage from the stage below.
The first week sales numbers are in and French Montana will debut at #4 on the Billboard 200 chart, which ranks the top 200 best selling albums in the country over the last week. It will also open at #1 on both the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Rap Albums charts. In total, it sold 56,000 units, reports Billboard.
Once again, this proves that the HITS Daily Double numbers should always be taken with a grain of salt. This week, they said that Montana would sell 49,775 units and place 6th. But they were off by more than 6,000 units and, more importantly, 2 spots. Multiple outlets reported those numbers, but the final numbers are always released by Nielsen SoundScan.
Frequent French Montana collaborator Harry Fraud released "Been Around the Wave" last week.
