Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV is expected to outperform Kanye West and Jay Z’s Watch the Throne, according to early iTunes sale estimates. It is expected that the first week of sales for Wayne’s ninth studio album, released last Sunday, will have brought in 850,000-900,000 sales.

In comparison, Billboard projected that the first week of sales for the highly-anticipated Watch the Throne album brought in 436,000 copies in the United States, which could mean that Wayne’s album could more than double the collaborative effort by Wayne and Jay-Z when the final numbers come in.

Wayne’s album, which was scheduled for a later release, but was ultimately put up on sale early five days early because of an online leak, could reach even up to a high-end 975,000 copies, according to HITS Daily Double. Not only did the album beat Watch the Throne, but it set a brand new digital weekly sales record, which was previously held by Jay-Z and West’s release in mid-August.

Wayne says he is “glad” that his album was illegally leaked early, forcing him to therefore release the official album.

“We did real good this time, real good,” Wayne told MTV’s Jim Cantiello. “It just means people want to hear it. I mean, ’cause there are people’s albums that come out that can be leaked and don’t leak, so I’m glad mines leaked.”

Lol dude had MTV promotion and singles. WTT was based only on Jay and Ye announcing the album. Nothing more


That said, I am shocked by the sales. Tha Carter 4 is the worst album Wayne has ever made imo yet people bought it up. Kinda shocking...goes to show no matter people are in love with Wayne more than his music
Three singles...Magazine covers...I Am Music Tour....Kids...Of course Wayne gonna sell.
Jay and Ye' put out that "Black Album". No Promo, all coverage courtesy of various media outlets and word of mouth. Which album will you be bumping still tho around Thanksgiving?

Jay and Kanye's album was put out with little to no promotion.. They did it that way BY CHOICE.. They didn't make their album to sell millions in a week.. They did an album to their liking..

You don't think Jay and Kanye couldn't make an album full of mainstream radio friendly songs, and take longer to put it out while they invest tons of money into marketing it?

If it was said in the beginning.. Ok you are going to be releasing around the same time as Wayne and you guys gotta sell more copies.. it woulda went down different..

Jay is number one EVERY TIME his album comes out...

you kids are sick in the head talkin that "jay is done" sh*t...

Jay is numero uno.. and you know ur first in line to DOWNLOAD any material he drops..

Yeah that's crazy but when you think about it, it's about the same numbers. I mean, 750k compared to 800k, that's close as sh*t. Even tho Wayne might top the first week sales, he won't top Recovery's overall sales.


Still, HUGE numbers for Wayne for today's trends.

how do you people come up with that conclusion??? you know how dumb yall muh fu*kas sound saying dat sh*t?? because im pretty sure yall know people 18+ years of age that listen to wayne...and do you know the majority of hip hop is supported by White's ??? yall making it seem like Waynes fan base is mostly kids which it isn'...for example my uncle is a Professor At Florida state university...Doctorate Degree Graduate and likes lil wayne...wayne last show in tampa he attended...and you know what was his review on the show?? he said "that was one of the best concerts he has ever went to!! and he see's why people like his music and he has came a loooong way based on the amount of White people that was at the concert"...and the same goes for Nas, Hov, Em, Ye and etc...young and even old white folks buy their music...dont get mad because black folks dont support their own kind and another race does...that just shows you how far black people have came....so when you say "oh Wayne has little White kids buying his sh*t just shows how much yall n*ggas be hating and try to discredit a n*gga...straight up

Carter IV was over-hyped. It's not a bad album, and it's not all that good. That's just my opnion. I say this because I have some songs I like, and others that I just skip.

I stopped listening to Jay long ago... Don't like the guy. Kanye good, but all I listen to is ppl rap about drugs (mainly weed), money and hos. That's just me though...

album sales are a thing because jay z made them a thing

you cant have lyrics like 'only people moving units is em pimp juice and us'

then say sh*t like 'men lie, women lie, numbers dont'

and have album sales be off the table after that
