before n*ggas come in saying its a big success

subtract all of the ticketmaster sales with the WTT tour from the numbers

end of the day, despite all their best efforts to prevent the leakage and the hype of jay/ye. . .they both ended up doing exactly what they always do with their album sales 1st week


for all this they could have just released it to the mom and pops and every retail outlet

Theres A LOT of dumb n*ggas in this thread right now.

Someone explain how an album that's #1 in 21 countries, yet was only released digitally (up until friday when it was sent out to ONE retailer) is a flop at 400k + copies sold..

They broke the all time Digital first week record. Beating out COLDPLAY (the worlds favorite band)


I really dont get the rationale here.

One of the smart young gentlemen calling this a flop must elaborate on this for me

















I'll wait...
Because the sh*t was only available online and itunes was the only place to get it!!!!!!!
Cold Play sold 316,000 copies in 1 DAY and the album was not exclusive to Itunes

How is this a lost?

Watch The Throne only sold in iTunes, broke a record on most selled digital units on there. Then sold only in one retailer and still manage this number. Yall funny.

I'm mad one guy said Carter 4 will do this number lol.

everyone that is a hiphop fan or even a jay n kanye hater downloaded this sh*t to see how it was.

dude, you fail to realize that WTT didnt have the marketing plan of a typical jay/ye solo record.. no video, little airplay

and you fail to realize that physical cd customers (allegedly) could only buy the cd at a POP up store in NYC and best buys starting friday

and the others had to buy on itunes..

at the end of the day, the album will do 2.0-2.4 platinum prolly..
Marketing my a.ss
Otis is the #1 song in rotation on Radio One Stations
The premiered the Otis Video simultaneously on every major music television network
Watch the Throne video debuts Thursday at 8:56 p.m. ET/PT on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, MTV.com and BET.

I bet that cost nickel and dimes to do right

And then you have the stans that hype this sh*t the hell up like some retro jordans that sell off the shelves thanks to word of mouth.
try again defending this bullsh*t
JAY CAN DO NO WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that was a french twitter that said that. it probably meant worldwide

Before n*ggas come in here saying this is a flop

Compare how much money was used for promo
To these numbers
a couple of interviews,a couple of private listening sessions. 1 single right before the album drop and word of mouth

the only serious expense was the damn maybach
