‘Trouble Man’: T.I. To Exceed Sales Expectations With New Album / Hits ‘The Breakfast Club’

Published: Thursday 20th Dec 2012 by David

For Southern Rapper T.I., heading to jail 2009 saw his commercial value suffer a number of unforeseeable dips… a shadow of the numbers that saw 2006’s ‘King‘ debut with sales of 522,000 units.

However, after rebranding himself as the ultimate family man, it seems his cause is on the up- well, that is if first day sales predictions for his new LP are anything to go by.

Details below…

Upon the release of ‘Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head’, the ever accurate Hits Daily Double predict he will shift between 150,000 to 175,000 units without the benefit of a Hot 100 smash.

Of course, while these figures are a little ‘slim’ when compared to digits pushed by Drake, Nicki Minaj, Jay Z and Lil Wayne, they do give an indication of the consumer’s renewed interest in the Rapper, whose last album is still yet to hit the 1 million mark two years after release.

His impressive first week debut will come days after he appeared on the hit radio show, ‘The Breakfast Club’ to push the ‘Atlantic’ release.

  10. MUSIC HEAD December 20, 2012

    These numbers are respectable. I’m just wondering why he is having such a hard time figuring out how to make a hit record these days. I was a big T.I. fan from ’06-’10 but lately he has fallen off with his music.

    • 8th1der June 29, 2014

      Something has obviously happened when it comes to tip smashing the charts. But he hasn’t fallin off at all artistically only commercially could that even be considered. Tips a beast and im lookin to feast off of paperwork

  11. TinaMinaj December 20, 2012

    T.I and his management need to crank up the promo! This record is amazing and deserves success!

  12. Robier December 20, 2012

    Tragic numbers

  13. Lily December 20, 2012

    I wish the best for him. Trouble Man is amazing.

  14. theman December 21, 2012

    These numbers are in the same realm, of his last album.

  15. Download Beats December 22, 2012

    Agree with THEMAN, these numbers are more or less the same that he put out for No Mercy. but none of his singles really stuck this time around so maybe those ARE good numbers.
