Nov 29 - Despite Early Reports Jay-Z Sells 680K, "It Didn't Live Up To People's Expectations"
 

 
Despite fluctuating sales, Jay-Z's Kingdome Come has topped T.I.'s King as the year's top selling hip-hop album with 680,000 units sold, according to Nielsen's SoundScan.

After selling a massive amount of units its first day, early reports had Kingdome Come selling over 800,000 copies with a chance at reaching 850,000. Weekend sales then revealed that the album was projected to sell between 700,000 and 730,000 units. Now that the official reports have surfaced, Kingdome Come has nabbed Billboard's top spot with 680,000 CDs sold.

"The album was flying off the shelves, man," Anthony Omor, Customer Service Supervisor for Times Square's Virgin Megastore, told SOHH.com. "It's number one in our store right now."

Meanwhile, lukewarm reviews may have contributed to Hov's numbers dropping. Bloggers all over the internet have slammed the album while fans are increasingly voicing their disappointment with the God Emcee's comeback LP.

"I can see why they would say they're disappointed in the sales," Omor offered. "I think a lot of fans weren't too happy with the album neither though. People were expecting it to be this great album and it's hard to live up to what The Black Album was, you know. I think it didn't live up to people's expectations."

Still, Kingdome Come registers as the year's best selling rap album and the third overall best selling album behind Rascal Flatts' Me And My Gang (714k) and Justin Timberlake's Future s3x/Love Sounds (711k).

Numbers dont lie. I think the album caters to a different crowd. Still hip hop but it has a more grown sense to it. I bet n*ggas thought it was gonna have some dirt off ya shoulder sh*t even though dig a hole is a nice track.

These kids today don't care about lyrics anymore,you put a rapper in there who can't rap worth a sh*t with off the hook beats and they will give it 5 stars.
