They limited their sales potential by limiting the places that could carry it. They could have probably pushed 700k if it was in every store..

bestbuy/itunes payed these kats a lot of cash. they'll recoup that money.

This, they sacrificed more sales for more cash. Shyt will still go platinum anyway :dancingcool:

I also wonder how many of the sales came from Ticketmaster...

 MrIndieArtist said:
you would think they both had more then 200,000 fans though. i use to cop jays albums but hes lost me in recent years. perhaps there are more like me
Not all Jay fans are Ye fans and not all ye fans are Jay fans. This is why collab albums never sell as much as the artists solo joints. Look at Best of Both Worlds...

I guess I'd be this mad if I had to live in a sh*thole like Ohio and pretend to be proud of it. I mean, you're borderling on being an obsessive female about an album you dont like. But I forgot that you like being Boxden's version of Skip Bayless.

How many Bottles of Pink Champagne have you gone through tonight?
1st off I now live in Maryland and yessir Ciroc Red Berry on Deck!
Ha Haaaaaaaaaaaaa!

they shot themselves in the foot with the lack of marketing.. the album was worth 1 mil copies in a week though
just because anything jay-z touches is platinum right?

is it me, or is thursday night of last week occuring later than the monday morning that the cd dropped?!?! no cd in hip hop history (outside of eminem) could drop an album digitally only on monday, drop a video on thursday, drop physical cds on friday, and expect to do amazing numbers...

usually a cd has 1-2 videos 4-5 months before a release at least...

jay and kanye still did very well despite the measures they did to stop leaks which will prove successful as they'll do prolly 300k/+ in their second week after getting a full 7 days in store

And the backtracking begins
