Jay Z’s ‘Great Gatsby’ Soundtrack Heads To Billboard Glory

LANA DEL REY THAT GRAPE JUICE 5 Jay Zs Great Gatsby Soundtrack Heads To Billboard Glory

With contributions from Lana Del Rey, Beyonce, Frank Ocean and Emeli Sande, the soundtrack for Baz Lurhmann‘s ‘The Great Gatsby’ is on track to score impressive numbers on the Billboard 200.

Good news below…

Crafted by ROC mogul Jay Z, the Interscope backed release is now on course to debut with over 100,000 units by the end of the next chart week- surpassing earlier expectations of 95,000.

Set to come in at #2, the project is also on course to mark Baz’ third soundtrack to reach  the Top 3 after ‘Romeo & Juliet‘ peaked at #2 in 1996, and ‘Moulin Rouge‘ arrived at #3 back in 2001.

Had it not been for Lady Antebellum‘s ‘Golden‘, the soundtrack would have peaked at #1, thanks to Beyonce’s sultry rendition of the Amy Winehouse classic, ‘Back To Black‘ and Lana Del Rey’s ‘Young & Beautiful‘.

The Great Gatsby‘ is now available to watch in theatres worldwide now.

    This is good news after his embarrassing scandal with Foxy Brown… Claiming he like trannies and he was/is in a relationship with that guy that modeled for RocAWear. Lana Sia and Florence are awesome. Too bad Emile Sande did a cover or she would of slayed!

    I love this soundtrack. It was very experimental. Unlike a lot of soundtracks that are often boring and safe.

    Congratulations, even though I can’t stand Lana, but good for Bey and Jay, more coins to their account.

    H20 and MARIAHISMUSIC1 both slay with their pictures though. :D
