850,000 people bought it, but sales don't count I forgot
when you get to jay's or nas position sales are really all that matter besides the overall quality of the album.

Album was alright wasn't 850,000 copies great though but those are just the projections so it might be lower.

Jay z is a money maker...he dont care about the fans

He said he retired with the last album so everyone went out and copped it like nothing...and now he comes back? so everyone falls into the hype and buys this too...cause its a comeback?

You retire...then retire...

Nikkas, please learn to read, ITS A PROJECTION !!!! he hasnt sold 850k. The person who posted this is a complete idiot, misleading title.

And yeh, this is the WORST ever jay-z album, dude fell off, but he had a gd single, show me what you got.
I posted this. I'm a complete idiot? I didn't write the article dumb a.ss. I posted directly from SOHH including the title. Most projections are pretty close to the actual number. It's obvious you are a Jay Z hater.

They projected game to do 400,000 and he only did like 40,000 or so less than that...so the projections are fairly accurate. He may not break the record for the year though.

Sales don't dictate wether an album is good or not. This is a prime example of marketing at it's best.This is what so many artist complain about. If an artist doesn't sale the label is quick to say you put a product the public didn't want. If you market anything as much as the Kingdom Come album you will sale. It can be trash and it can be a classic. What marketing does it throws the album in the public's face every day which makes you buy it when it drops.

The album is okay at best. I love Hov', but "Life is but a beach chair????" He's definitely put out better. He's gonna sell regardless. But this album is definitely NOT Top 5 hov.

IF YOUR UNDER 27 THEN THIS ALBUM AIN'T FOR YOU. JAY IS ON SOME STRAIGHT UP GROWN-MAN sh*t, SO HALF OF YA'LL CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT TYPE OF sh*t HE'S ON. LIKE MY POPS ONCE TOLD ME, THERE'S WAY MORE DUMB PEOPLE IN THE WORLD THAN SMART PEOPLE, SO KEEP LISTENING TO THE SNAP YA FINGERS AND ALL THAT OTHER sh*t THATS MADE FOR YA'LL TO UNDERSTAND. DONT GET IT TWISTED I'M NOT HATIN' I PERSONALLY LIKED THAT JOINT BUT IT WAS JUST TO MUCH OF THAT sh*t COMIN' OUT. PROPS TO JAY-Z FOR CHANGING THE GAME ONCE AGAIN, BROOKLYN YA'LL DID IT AGAIN....

People keep brining up his promotion but majority of his promotion is coming from good business moves! Budweiser asks him to advertise for them he says o.k. promote my album in your beer commercial. N.F.L. asks him to do something he says promote my album. Is it his fault that all the artists complaining about not getting promotion don't have the appeal that he has and can get there album advertised while advertising something else?

Aside from that IMO the album is BRILLIANT!!! I know many of you have to be tired of hearing who has sold more than Scarface and who has shot more people than Rambo on every song. Maybe I'm getting too old to come on this board and need to find something else to post on.

that n*gga sold 850 on the strength of his name....not the content of that album. That sh*t was weak compared to his other albums....

I'm not impressed.
