Lil Wayne’s ‘The Carter IV’ To Exceed Sales Expectations

lil wayne carter iv Lil Waynes The Carter IV To Exceed Sales Expectations

Days ago, various reports indicated that Lil Wayne‘s ‘The Carter IV‘  would see first week sales around the 850,00 units figure.

However, fans of the Young Money Rapper will be pleased to know that the LP is now expected to exceed this sales prediction and is now set to  almost double the first week successes  of ‘Watch The Throne’ released by rivals Jay Z and Kanye West.

Find out more below…

After his now well celebrated performance at the  2011 MTV Video Music Awards , new reports suggest that the ‘How To Love‘ entertainer’s upcoming album is now expected to move between 925,000 to 975,000 units in the first week of its release in the US alone.

This would not only make the performer’s LP the highest selling Rap effort of the year but also one of the only LPs to move over 900,000 units in its first week alone in the last two years.

Surpassing  Lady GaGa‘s ‘Born This Way‘ which although sold 1 million copies in its first week, was only able to achieve this due to the fact that Amazon were selling its copies of the LP for less than a dollar.

    Something seems fishy to me too. There is no way that Wayne’s Rebirth album and i think he had another one after that and they both flopped. But all of a sudden this one sells?…..I think young money is spending some money on lil wayne’s album.

    RIP HIP HOP……

    (I can’t believe I’m saying this) but in Lil LawnGnome’s defense,His last two albums were a mixtape and a “rock” album….

    Again…It MIGHT deal with the fact that it might be his last album before retirement.(but then again I got this from Wikipedia.)

    No matter how many copies this album sells,it still SUCKS.

    Good for Wayne. Jay z is complacent in his career. He shows no growth, in fact he’s digressed as far as lyrical content. He used to tell stories but now he’s just blinging and bragging on his records. Jay z used to be the king.
    Kanye is hotter than Jay and so is lil Wayne. Jay uses them to stay relevant with collabs ect…
    I don’t consider him a King of Rap. Just look at Waynes sales. Jay had to collaborate with Kanye to do this good. Sad

    @ Que_Baby8….Know your facts lol. “4″ is in fact the #6 selling album of the year. Learn to read ;)

    01. 3,144,000 – 21 – Adele (+83k) (27 weeks)
    02. 1,735,000 – BORN THIS WAY – Lady GaGa (+21k) (14 weeks)
    03. 718,000 – NEVER SAY NEVER – THE REMIXES – Justin Bieber (+ >3k) (28 weeks)
    04. 712,000 – F.A.M.E. – Chris Brown (+8k) (24 weeks)
    05. 702,000 – WATCH THE THRONE – Jay-Z & Kanye West (+89k) (3 weeks)
    06. 701,000 – 4 – Beyonce (+22k) (9 weeks)
    07. 678,000 – NOW That’s What I Call Music! 37 – Various Artists (+ >3k) (29 weeks)
    08. 658,000 – FEMME FATALE – Britney Spears (+8k) (23 weeks)
    09. 652,000 – Now That’s What I Call Music! 38 – Various Artists (+10k) (17 weeks)
    10. 558,000 – ROLLING PAPERS – Wiz Khalifa (+8k) (23 weeks)

    She is at #6 with no hit single and hardly any promo. She is also at #6 with only 9 weeks on the chart while EVERYONE else has almost 14-20 weeks (that’s double the time to sell).

    It may not be Beyonce’s best selling album but look at everyone’s sells. Beyonce is doing just as good. She will finish in the top 5.

    Obviously everyone is oblivious to the fact that Wayne’s VMA perfromance sucked and was out done by JayZ and Kanye’s surprise performance and Beyonce pregnancy announcement. As washed up or as I call him “seasoned” as Jayz might be he is truly the best rapper alive, you really have to be a hip hop artist and fan and actually listen to his lyrics. Plus what man can change the lifestyle of people. He started the whole button up and jean faze and clearly look how quickly that has populated around the world. He sold reebook people reebok shoes and made hella money for reebok with that being their record high sales. also not to mention he was the highest paid entertainer this year beating out Diddy, come one Lil Wayne coined the phrase bling bling but aint showing that he really got the bling bling. COme on what has lil wayne done but create more babies in the world. I am not a hater of wayne I like his music but I hate gimmicks and people that talk about the same stuff all the time and thats all wayne does. Now all of sudden he is an alien. Well ET I think it is time to phone home.

Jay wins that argument clearly hands down. Like jay doesnt need anyone hell he owns everyone what he need kanye for he is making money off his ass duh come on ppl dont let a simple and perculiar week of sales for Wayne make you think he the man now. I bet any amount of money JayZ was waynes influence when he was young so please.

    Lil wayne has a HUGE fanbase.. DESPITE all the hate he receives from the BLACK community now for CATERING to the WHITE population, wayne still DEMANDS a large audience that BUYS cds. NOTICE beyonce album flopped BECAUSE she tried to CATER to the BLACK COMMUNITY. “)

    Lol at ‘well celebrated performance at the 2011 VMA’s’! Really? TGJ did ya’ll write this article cause ya’ll know damn well people have been saying his performance was a hot sizzling ass mess! I swear it was like he was high during the entire performance. Nothing about that performance got praise! Ya’ll were beyond reaching with that one.

    Anywho, I guess congrats in order for Lil Weasel for selling waaaaay more than I think a lot of people expected him to sell. I don’t want to rain on anybody’s parade but I can’t help but look at this with a side eye. I mean everyone and their mama is saying how bad the album is, even his diehard fans. It’s getting horrible reviews and it leaked. I just don’t get it! I guess he has a solid fanbase, and I know a lot of his fans are white surburban kids but I still can’t believe these numbers. Wow, just wow.

    All jokes a side, I really wouldn’t be surprised it Birdman wasn’t buying a s*** load of copies of Wayne’s album just to get him a high debut. Birdman seems like the type who would do anything for his ‘son’ Wayne and I bet he really wanted to be able to say Wayne beat Jay & Kanye’s sales with WTT since they got a lil beef going. I really wouldn’t put it pass him to pull something like this. These numbers just seem so suspect.

    Oh well. I guess we’ll never know for sure. I’m seriously dumbfounded though! *shrugs*

    Um….are you kidding me?! Where did you get your info from?! ’6ft, 7ft’ was HUGE and made it into the top ten on Hot 100 and ‘How to Love’ did just as well and was also in the top ten on Hot 100. ‘She Will’ debuted at No. 3 on Hot 100 and its only been out for a few weeks. I still think these sales are suspect as hell and I would love to see some receipts but ALL of his singles from this era have done really well. There is no disputing that! As over rated as I think Wayne is he does consistently churn out hits! He stays on the charts even when he was locked up.

    I’m not a big Wayne fan but damn! Check your facts next time. All you have to do is go to Billboard to see chart performance.

    Lil Wayne’s last two CD’s didn’t ‘flop’, they just flopped compared to C3.

    The reason this is doing so much better is the last two weren’t promoted well. Rebirth was a rock album, which just sucked. I am not a human being dropped while he was in jail, and didn’t have powerful singles (just one semi-big single). This album has three singles and Lil Wayne is completing the biggest rap tour this year probably right now to support it

    His last two albums didn’t flop, they just didn’t do as well as the “Carter 3″. “Rebirth” should actually be certified platinum and the “YMCMB” is certified gold. That was just an album released for his whole group to make money. However, i do find these numbers fishy. I was thinking that he’ll sale about 375 to 600k at best. But almost a million ut of nowhere. Something does seem fishy.

    Beyonce is not a flop, she doesn’t have a huge single out as of yet, and if her next single is a huge hit it will only help her album sales, implus her album sales will increase this week.

    When I said break out single, I was comparing those singles to the singles from Carter III.

    Seeing the trend of album sells this past year, none of Lil Waynes singles have broken any records nor have they performed well enough to garnish 900,000 album sells in week.

    I’m confused. Why are people so suprised about Wayne’s album sales? I’m not a fan, but clearly his album was going to perform well. 1. His singles stay in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. 2. The Carter 3 sold over a million copies the first week. 3. Nobody was checking for those other albums, a mixtape, young money collabo, a rock album? Please! 4. He’s a crossover mainstream artist with a loyal record buying fanbase. The end.

    You guys are idiots. Lil Wayne has 3 top hits a top 30 with John another song Mirror w/ Bruno Mars debuting in the top 10. On top of being apart of countless other hits (Kelly Rowland, Enrique Inglesias, Chris Brown, David Guetta, & cuntless other pop songs) The last 2 albums he released were EPs released by the label the 2nd one went #1 2 weeks in a row and produced a top 10 single with no promo WHILE HE WAS IN JAIL. Lil Wayne is running hip hop. Stay mad.

    plus i live in the middeleast . people here are hyped about the carter 4 so thats more sales for him. may be not a million but definitely more than 700000.

People been waiting for him to release the Carter 4 for a long time. So it’s no wonder he’s predicted to sell almost a million in the first week. & As far As the rebirth goes. That s*** was horrible. Y’all just need to suck it up & accept the fact that he could possibly go platinum in a week. He already outsold WTT. …… f****** haters.

    Lil Wayne has progressed and grown as an artists! The natural progression that an artist should experience see them start out having lean years and progreesively get better hence his current 900,000 1st week CD sells. This of course is added to his 1 million 1st week selling CD previously released! Unlike “Man CaCa”, he didn’t have 2 for 1 Best Buy deals and Amazon.com $0.99 two day give aways!! His fans stepped up and purchased his product!

    Jay z may not have been caught on camera kissing a man but his gay actions are well known about, don’t get it twisted. I didn’t like the pic if Weezy and Birdman but I love his music so what ever Wayne does with his ass hole and lips isn’t my concern. Just keep cranking the hits lil tunchie. We all know that Jay loves Ye’s ass and lips; and Beyonce is just Jay’s beard.

    The reason his rebirth album didn’t sell too well is cuz it was an experimental rock album, I’m a fan but even I didn’t digg it all too much. I’m not a human being is an ep, it was actually supposed to be the carter iv but he never finished it so it was released as a mixtape, it was ayyyt, C4 on the other hand is quite good. Bumpin it as we “speak”. Weezy back, and he takin over!! President Carter!

    Yall keep 4getting that Wayne went platinum on The Block is Hot, Lights Out, Carter I, Carter II, and Carter III and that doesn’t include the Hot Boys album so this sh*t is nothing new.. I’m Not A Human Being & Rebirth didnt go platinum b/c he was trying something new with the Rock and he got incarcerated therefore he couldn’t promote it.. I honestly can believe that he sold that many with the Carter IV b/c I bought it and know so many ppl who have as well..i didn’t like the Carter IV and I will never buy another Wayne album unless he go back to Carter I & II style of rapping with meaning to music.. But I can believe he sold that many so stop hating and do the research of his past albums since he’s been rapping if u don’t believe me.. The dude have a solid fanbase black and white GOT DAMN just get over it!!

    Funny thing is it won’t. Because these people who estimate these sales are always wrong. They estimated that Katy Perry would sell 250,000-300,000 and she didn’t even scrape 200K. They also estimated that Britney would sell between 300,000-350,000 and she barely scraped 275,000. They also estimated that Adele would sell anywhere from 275,000-300,000 and she sold 350,000. They are never right. And as for that remark about Gaga. Gaga was estimated to sell 900,000-950,000 WITHOUT the Amazon deal, which she didn’t have anything to do with. Shade is funny but not needed. Gaga still has the 2nd best selling album this year and that’s with hardly any promo in the US and worldwide she has the best selling album.

    To be blount and to the point…. It’s now about support cause “Hip-Hop” today AIN’T s***. For those who don’t understand metaphors, don’t get made, retake English. Face the fact that Wayne is untouchable. Plenty of many artists have flopped on some albums and came right back. It’s cool to voice your opinion just know what the f*** you are talking about. Read the message in the music cause he ain’t doin this s*** for nothing. #KNOWDAT And some of you all talk major s*** but can’t even sell a fraction of what Soulja Boy sold if you tried. Know the game then speak…. Better yet know the flavor of the Kool-Aid thenget in it. Until then as a PSA *Kill Yourself*
