Whether you bought a hard copy at Best Buy or downloaded it on iTunes, surely you fell in love with Kravitz's ninth studio album, Black and White America, released earlier this year on Roadrunner Records.
The funk-rock LP featured collaborations with Jay-Z and Drake, debuted atop German and Swiss charts, and sold over 20,000 copies its first week in the US--a respectable number in the digital age.
