Mar 7 - 50 CENT MASSACRES RETAIL
 

 
CHART PREVIEW:
50 CENT MASSACRES RETAIL

Riddled Rapper Dwarfs All Comers in
Just Four Days

March 7, 2005

It’s been a retail Massacre, all right.
Call it thunder-stealing, shade-throwing, or whatever you want, but 50 Cent has crushed all comers in a show of retail force rarely seen these days. His new album, The Massacre (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) has been selling in rapid fire since its release last Thursday (2/3) and at this point looks like it will have easily moved over a million units once the counting’s done.

Indeed, The Massacre’s number could potentially move as high as 1.1 or 1.2 million, though it’s too early to tell. Regardless, 50 Cent is untouchable on this week’s album chart. Who else could do that and find time to excommunicate someone from his or her crew?

Up until last week, Epic’s Jennifer Lopez had the sales week just ended all to herself and was looking at a #1 debut for her Rebirth. But since Interscope moved up The Massacre, her album has had to take a back seat even though its sales have grown steadily over the course of the week and is now expected to come in at around 250k.

Besides birth- and death-themed albums taking over the #2 and #1 chart postions, respectively (it’s a cycle-of-life thing), several other debuts of note will hit the chart this week:

Jack Johnson’s In Between Dreams (Enjoy/Universal) is looking at this point like 170k-180k.

Mars Volta’s Frances the Mute (Strummer/Universal) could come in as high as 130k. The album has been priced to sell and has been available for as little as $6.99 at Best Buy.

Judas Priest’s Angel of Retribution (Epic) is on track to take its chart bow with around 70k under its studded black leather belt. Interestingly, retailers report that up to 50% of this titles sales may be on the new DualDisc CD/DVD hybrid format.

WTF? 50 needs Em and Dre? He's about to sell 1.1-1.2 million units in a week. Anyone capable of moving that many units doesnt 'need' anyone. Not that i think he would leave them, but if he ever did have a falling out with them, he'd do fine on his own. Love him or hate him, he's now a superstar and is not going away, regardless of whatever Jadakiss, Fat Joe or The Game say.

lol at people sayin 50 sells because of Dre & Em.

look at D12, Obie Trice, or the rest of G-Unit.

Even though they all platinum, they aint moving 50 Cent numbers. and they got the same connections.

so it aint ALL becaue of Em & Dre. 50 knows what he's doing.

i wouldnt be surprised if em and dre dropped 50. just because he makes them money doesnt mean they will keep him. if 50 starts up with nas and jadakiss and they make diss records towards him i seriously doubt eminem will get involved since he works with nas in the past. without eminem 50 would be crushed by nas and his career would take a beating. i am not hating on 50 and i do have his album its not about that. but i also like nas and jadakiss and i would pick nas over 50 cent anyday. eminem will not make a diss towards nas and you can quote me on that!

dont be a friggin moron, you know 50 cent has 2 albums before he got with dre right? if you dont then thats why, because alot of people think his first album was get rich or die tryin. some of the top selling rap albums of all time has dres name on them, 2pac, nwa, snoop, eminem, 50 cent and the entire g unit. 50 cent was almost dead because his career was going no where before eminem signed him. and even though eminem always was good his first album without dre didnt sell at all. eminem would not as popular today without dre even though he has the talent to sell millions. and yes d12 and the other groups dont sell as good as 50 cent but they sold a hell of a lot more than they would have without dre.
