  11. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 19, 2011

    I feel sick in the stomach.Urgh!At least it has some great lyrics on there, although they are rhymed and spoken (I will NOT say “rapped”) attrociously.I just hope that the people/sheep who bought it can copy some lyrics and keep some instrumentals and throw the rest of the audio AWAY, because it’s a DISGRACE!

  12. jamir21: bey,rih,brit,gaga,nicki # 1 FAN !!!! August 19, 2011

    @ ASCAP WHATS A DISGRACE YOUR FACE !?

  14. The Ke$halicious Is Takeing Over August 19, 2011

    Adele continues her nice long s*** on everyone.

    @ASAP(As Sincere As Possible)
    Are you the type of person who prefers basic b**** type rap(Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, 50 Cent)? Watch the Throne is on a whole different level that other rappers are afraid to go to. Instead they make basic rap that will get played on the radio.

  15. Pamelatm August 19, 2011

    congrats to them…thats a good look…
    ..Apple bout to launch new iPhone & for their 50th anniversary.. http://goo.gl/RbL1T so they giving out iPhone 5..i got 2…ahha

  16. Madonnalover August 19, 2011

    @the…
    Actually WTT is typical rap s*** that is NOT experimental. If anything its what we’re hearing on the radio right now. Autotune though? That s*** SUCKS.

    THIS is real hip hop tbh…

    @O S C A R
    I think it comes on E! News. Usually that starts around 6/7-ish I’ll go check….

  20. jamir21: bey,rih,brit,gaga,nicki # 1 FAN !!!! August 19, 2011

    @ Yeabey Hopefully it will be good !

  21. The Ke$halicious Is Taking Over August 19, 2011

    @Madonna
    Not a fan of Mos Def, but that was a dope song. How is WTT typical rap s***? Ima need you to find an album out today thats like it.

  22. Gilberto August 19, 2011

    Please, TGJ staff, could you stop posting sale figures of United World Chart? This s*** ISN’T OFFICIAL. You’re starting to look dumb just like a Rihanna or Britney Spears’ fan.

  23. YELLOW GORILLAH August 19, 2011

    Loud has already passed the 5million mark. everyone is doing good!

  24. YEABEY WON’T DANCE 4 U August 19, 2011

    @JAMIR21
    I hope so too but even if it’s not idc…..it’s a simple song so I wouldn’t mind a simple video…

    @O S C A R
    I think it comes on @ 6 on E! News….probably in the middle of the show or something

  25. jamir21: bey,rih,brit,gaga,nicki # 1 FAN !!!! August 19, 2011

    I just seen a fan made video for Lady Gaga`s Bloody Mary and I got to say it looks pretty good Gaga should use some of those things in her film !!

  26. Madonnalover August 19, 2011

    @thekeshalicious..
    Okay, not so much TYPICAL, but very overrated. TBH, the direction they took with the album was NOT the right one. I did not like the way they experimented, the autotune just ruined some songs, and it was too much EGO, and not enough substance. When I listen to hip hop, I want to listen to SUBSTANCE for a WHOLE album, ya know? Not just one or two songs, then the rest spitting nonsense about how much money they have and how they are the s***. That’s why I like Mos def because his albums were consistent and didnt have too much of his ego in it….SO I actually do agree it dosent sound like anything on the radio, but that’s not always a good thing.

    Um Mediatraffic is NOT a credible source for world wide numbers. Do you not see how cheap the site looks?

  28. SelenaGomezFan August 19, 2011

    Wikipedia is more credible than Mediatraffic

  29. Those That Cannot Do, Stan August 19, 2011

    Props to Adele and Amy Winehouse, they’re doing the damn thing. R.I.P. Dear lady. Eh, wasn’t checking for Jay and Kay, I’ll look into it though and see if it’s worth all this noise. We all know s*** sells (sometimes).

  30. The Ke$halicious Is Taking Over August 19, 2011

    @Madonna
    I definately feel what your saying. Anyone who listens to Jay and Kanye knows they put alot of ego in their music. And the autotune did f*** up some songs. I dont mind autotune, but it doesnt belong in rap. Production wise, I’d say was 10/10. I like how they sampled James Brown and Otis Redding and others.

  31. Madonnalover August 19, 2011

    @Thekesha
    Yes, I do like the otis song. It did have some standouts, definitly.

  32. YEABEY WON’T DANCE 4 U August 19, 2011

    SAM stopped posting BB 200 chart positions ever since a certain album came out……. 🙄

  33. O s c a r August 19, 2011

  34. Madonnalover August 19, 2011

  35. YEABEY WON’T DANCE 4 U August 19, 2011

    You’re welcome…

  36. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 19, 2011

    @KE$HALICIOUS NO!I’m not that type.I dislike WTT but I know that it’s miles better than the abominations that the artists you mentioned come up with
    @JAMAR/JAMOR or whatever your name is.How old are you???Because I remember using the same punchline…in kidden garden

  37. THE ICONIC LACEFRONCE. August 19, 2011

    FLOPonce is done. 4closure falls down the charts every week. It has already proven to have no longevity. No Grammys for BLEACHonce next year, especially since RATThew isn’t her manager anymore & will no longer purchase them.

    4=flop

    BLEACHonce=washed up. 😉

  38. Perry Power August 19, 2011

    21=8.8million world wide #Winning
    Lacefronce=hater #Fail

  39. Perry Power August 19, 2011

    4=1.37million #Winning

  40. THE ICONIC LACEFRONCE. August 19, 2011

    4= Still under 700k in the US. Selling about 35k per week. When will 4closure reach 1 million in the US? 😕

    FLOP FLOP FLOP

    Katy TITS OUT Perry= Gimmick. Music is crap. 69c deals to get #1 singles.

    You h*** will deal 😉

  41. IN THE SOUTH,WE DON’T STAN FOR BIRDS,WE FRY ‘EM UP & SERVE THEM WITH BISCUITS & DIRTY RICE (IS†ANN4GAGA) August 19, 2011

    Yeabey, I noticed the same thing. Glad Bey’s ‘4’ is still in the top ten on that chart also.
