Mar 7 - 50 CENT MASSACRES RETAIL
 

 
CHART PREVIEW:
50 CENT MASSACRES RETAIL

Riddled Rapper Dwarfs All Comers in
Just Four Days

March 7, 2005

Itís 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 countingís done.

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

Up until last week, Epicís 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 (itís a cycle-of-life thing), several other debuts of note will hit the chart this week:

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

Mars Voltaís 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 Priestís 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.
