‘Yeezus’: Kanye West Predicted To Debut With Half A Million Copies Sold

Published: Sunday 16th Jun 2013 by David

As critics continue to air out their takes on the release, Kanye West‘s ‘Yeezus’ eyes chart glory this coming week, thanks to the unique yet potent roll out birthed in its aid.

Not sure what we mean?

Projected sales below…

According to a number of industry sources working on the back end of the release, the Rick Rubin led project is set to sell over 500,00 units in its first week of release…claiming the #1 spot and landing the Rapper his sixth #1.

Set to come in at #2 is J.Cole‘s ‘Born Sinner’ with anywhere between 150,000 to 200,000 units sold, matching but failing to significantly surpass the debut of 2011’s ‘Cole World’- which hit the Billboard 200 with 218,000 copies.

If ‘Sinner’ surpasses first week digits of 100k, it will mark the first time two Rap albums would have done so within the same week since November 2010- when West’s ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ debuted with 496,000 units and Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday’ came in with 375,000 units.

The latter, going onto move a further 660,000 copies in its first month of release bringing its US sales figure to 1,035,000 after four weeks.

West’s inevitable chart reign comes after numerous reports indicated a forthcoming collaboration between himself, U2‘s ‘Bono’ and Elijah Blake, allegedly set for release before the year’s end.

Keep it locked on That Grape Juice for more on ‘Yeezus’ chart journey in the coming days!

  3. YOOSONDALOOSE June 16, 2013

    I’ll wait for first day sales.

  4. My Forehead Tho June 16, 2013

    Kanye’s album was alway expected to be number one. I wonder what Kelly Rowlands projected sales will be though?

    • BEYONCE THE BIG FLOP EARS June 16, 2013

      Why cant beyoncvce have these numbers in one week?

      Kanye, Nicki, Drake and Wayne don’t get 1/2 the exposure she does?

      • BEYONCE THE BIG FLOP EARS June 16, 2013

        MARY Blige sold 750,000 in a week with The Breakthrough.

        the flop ear b**** songs gotta brainwash people before they buy her albums cause she HAS NEVER WENT GOLD-PLATINUM IN A WEEK…

      • FAF June 16, 2013

        flop ears? huh?

      • Anne June 16, 2013

        Beyonce had those types of first week numbers with B-day and I Am… Besides, she ALWAYS sells over a million with ease. Even if it’s not all in the first week.

      • B. Hill June 16, 2013

        LOL nah boo…Beyonce has been in this debut sales neighborhood before. The real question is why can’t R**** do 1/2 these numbers? LMAO!!!

  5. LA LA June 16, 2013

    Make sure y’all get J. Cole’s New Album “BORN SINNER” on JUNE 18th! Support Real Music!

    • shisha June 16, 2013

      That’s hip hop..r and b is the real deal! Kelly Rowland Talk A Good Game is he truth!

  6. BeyWhoUWanna June 16, 2013

    Ah the good ol days when Nicki used to be competition.

  7. Attention #BeyHive June 16, 2013

    I know this post isn’t Beyonce related but I jut wanted to let the Hive know that some friends of mine that work for Live Nation recently confirmed that Beyonce will be going on tour again after her album release! She will be in the Midwest sometime in December! I’m starting to get it now…. Part One = 4 + greatest hits
    Part Two = Her new album tour

    This era is finally starting to make sense!

    Who knows…. maybe she will do some stadiums in Europe when she goes back…. though for the fans sake…. i hope she doesn’t….

    I really hope they’re right! It’s seems to be 100% true considering they got an email with specific dates!!!!

    • LAY June 16, 2013

      Shut up please and please return yourself in your trash can home!

      • Attention #BeyHive June 16, 2013

        You first 😉

    • BEYONCE June 16, 2013

      lies

      • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 16, 2013

        😆

        Beyonce herself told you what’s up.

        Hi JuJu.

      • Attention #BeyHive June 16, 2013

        Does it not make since though? Cnsidering Beyonce said her album would come out in November? Think about it… This tour has been short and sweet… Nothing too extensive… No asia…. ect… I’m telling you the truth… Just watch….I don’t wanna say how I know… But believe me when I say I do!

      • truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) June 16, 2013

        B**** shut the F*** up!! @attendence

    • Anne June 16, 2013

      Hope so! It would be great if she went back on tour shortly after the release of the new album.

      • Attention #BeyHive June 16, 2013

        I know right! I’m really starting to get this new era… Basically she will have all this anticipation and tour to help promote/ get people excited about the album…. buying her plenty of time to finish it…. Then she releases the album in November… like she said to that one fan…. and embarks on another tour…USA… Asia…UK…South America…Australia…Latin American countries… possible stadiums… ect. She’s basically planning on getting everything she can out of this era! I wonder if she’s going to start with a whole new show though… This would explain why the Mrs. Carter Show was so short and sweet to start with… This album is going to sell very well!

  8. still June 16, 2013

    ONLY TGJ would post such a shitty and lying ass post like that. YOU CAN’T PREDICT THE SALES OF AN ALBUM THAT HASN’T EVEN BEEN MADE AVAILABLE ON PRE-ORDER !!!!!
    I totally believe he can do it but you ain’t gotta post it on your site with such a lying ass title.
    You clearly don’t know NOTHING about numbers (See: Always believing hdd predictions are the final numbers)
    Seems like y’all lost your brain cells after throwing stones at Rihanna 25/8.

    • Nostalgia1989 June 16, 2013

      I wonder how stupid you’ll feel when you click the Source link and see where this post came from.

    • VisionOfMimi June 16, 2013

      Kiii. I’d love to agree but TGJ are reputable when it comes to reports and they never lie. There’s a difference between being shady and lying.
      They DO shade but everything they say is backed up. I know that because I’ve been here four years.

    • ChiTownCedric June 16, 2013

      The way the facts are set up though….

    • OVODasher June 16, 2013

      Grape Juice don’t lie so I believe it. They got TC’s sales right too.

    • Lana Del Slay June 16, 2013

      @Still But it was Billboard that made the prediction. You seem a little TOO mad at TGJ, did they steal your boyfriend?

      • Still June 17, 2013

        Check Billboard’s history. They always predict numbers for the big artists and they are ALWAYS wrong. I am mad at the TITLE of this article.
        You try to drag me but you don’t know s***.

    • A$APBobby June 16, 2013

      But TGJ only reported what BB said. Why so angry?

    • PhuckYoFave June 16, 2013

      @Still Did they hit it once and never you call back?

    • BarbzRUs June 16, 2013

      B****** be mad.

    • Anon June 16, 2013

      I know who Still is and I know why they’re seething. Seethe on b****, seethe on.

    • Sophia June 16, 2013

      • FAF June 16, 2013

        If you google, TGJ is not the only site reporting this & if y’all f-ggots had lives off TGJ, you would know beyonce is having another baby, as E! news reported yesterday… y’all spend ur lives up r**** ass on this site & mad at what sam post, u dont watch the REAL news 😆

      • OVODasher June 16, 2013

  9. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) June 16, 2013

    • Sophia June 16, 2013

      • FAF June 16, 2013

  10. Carey #beautiful June 16, 2013

    Ok but what is Kelly Rowland expected to sale?

  11. Bey Is Grown June 16, 2013

    I really wish that J.Cole outsells Kanye but it doesnt look that way.Born Sinner is a great album.

  12. OKAY! June 16, 2013

    I hate this “My Forehead Tho” h**!

  13. XXX June 16, 2013

    Hes such a publicity w****. And I know this may sound harsh, but I bet he is basking in the fact his baby was born when it was. SO convenient.

    • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 16, 2013

      it was all planned by the devil herself ( mama kardashian) .

      to wash off the mistress rumors , get a promo for his album , her daughter won’t get much fatter with more stretch marks, etc….

      Kris is the devil i’m telling you, not to mention the baby was delivered after C-section and prematurely.

      this family is a Mess.

      🙄

      • XXX June 16, 2013

        The sad thing is, its actually believable with that family.

    • Sophia June 16, 2013

      True Tea

  14. Alex June 16, 2013

    I think Kelly Rowland will come in with sales of 87K-100K 🙂

    • LAY June 16, 2013

      Your whole entire family COMBINED can’t even make 87K – 100K! So what are you really talking about?

      • BEY IS GROWN June 16, 2013

    • Navy Sailor June 16, 2013

      Kanye isn’t big in Europe???

      • ^АКА^ June 16, 2013

        He always does decently in the UK/Ireland and he had some success with Graduation out of them, but generally speaking no. Tbh the first time I heard about him was when Rihanna appeared in Paranoid video 😀

    • B. Hill June 16, 2013

      Meh. Who cares? The U.S. is what counts the most. Anything else is just icing.

  20. Suicide Blonde June 16, 2013

    Can wait for Eminem’s new album, Kanye is not even a rapper anymore if he ever was.

    • steph June 16, 2013

      WHY DO YOU ALWAYS HATE ON BLACK ARITST & priase white artist

      • Suicide Blonde June 16, 2013

        That’s not true Stephy, i’m a huge fan of Prince, i’m not hating of Kanye, i used to like him before he started to believe that he is GOD.

    • NAW June 16, 2013

      Stupid k***.

      • Suicide Blonde June 16, 2013

        F*** Me!!!

    • Revolution June 16, 2013

      • Suicide Blonde June 16, 2013

        @Revolution
        You’d Be Surprised, didn’t Kanye is accused of cheating on Kim with another man.

      • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 16, 2013

        Kiiiiiiiii.

    • SBC19 June 16, 2013

      Go listen to One Direction and “Call Me Maybe,” you worthless effeminate homo. As a queeny ass f**, your taste in music is automatically inferior.

      • Suicide Blonde June 16, 2013

        You don’t now nothing about me, are you new in thi site, One Direction and Call me maybe, are you kidding me, me effeminate, lol, maybe in another life.

  21. Sheila June 16, 2013

    LOL at people on here all of a sudden becoming holy when they are some of the nastiest, meanest, most miserable souls on this earth that come on here and post, the ones that are calling his music the devil is the devil themselves. You may want to listen to the lyrics of his songs and stop listening to bloggers and tabloids. IDIOTS!!! The man is giving up praises to GOD all through his album but you call it satanic, but then you go out and buy crap that 90 X worst than this? please have a seat haters. You all will never learn, you have no minds of your own, you believe what the media and the blogs want you to believe.

  22. Super Cisus June 16, 2013

    What about Kelly Flopland??

    • Navy Sailor June 16, 2013

      Selling more than Ciara…

  23. Bey Is Grown June 16, 2013

    I like Pop Royalty and Jared(White Dude),they are a few people on here who are not nuts.

    • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) June 16, 2013

      Thank You. 😀

  24. FAF June 16, 2013

    KUDOS, KING THESE HOMOS CAN’T TAKE U OUTSELLING THEIR FAVE 8X OVER, SELLING 180K WITH WEEKS OF PROMO, A SCANDAL AND A #1 SINGLE… KIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

    • Navy Sailor June 16, 2013

      But your fave sold 80k and 37k, respectively. Sit.

  25. the real xoxo June 16, 2013

    Born Sinner was a far better album.

  26. Navy Sailor June 16, 2013

    This isn’t surprising. Kanye always pulls in huge first week numbers.

    • B. Hill June 16, 2013

      …unlike R****.

      • Navy Sailor June 16, 2013

        And your point in saying this was? 7 platinum plaques boo. Stay pressed.

  27. come fast go fast June 16, 2013

    and the second week? huge drop right? 😀

  28. ratedxxx(my favs stays on)) June 16, 2013

    people needs to stop with this devil worshiping crap…one moron made up some b******* Illuminati, and morons jumped on the wagon…..

    kanye is not the average rapper out there..he actually has talent, and when he raps he tells a story..you dont usually see big booty h***, naked h*** in his music videos….

    we know he’s a nut, and he has a huge ego..hell he can back up his ego unlike so many fake b****** out thats calling themselves king…

  29. ratedxxx(my favs stays on)) June 16, 2013

    and any idiot knows that it was kim’s mom putting out those gay rumors….since kanye doesn’t spend alot of time with kim….

    she thought in case kanye breaks up with kim..lets start by making kim the victim..

    in a way I don’t feel bad for kanye..he knew when he got with kim, that she was a media w****..so..

    people saying he’s using the baby to sell more album..umm do you know how famous kanye is? kanye can sell albums on his name alone…all the top designers f**** with kanye..

  30. JER June 16, 2013

    I wonder how many copies he bought himself

  31. Rosie June 16, 2013

    LOL at Yeezus selling as much in the US alone as most of the pop girls’ 4th-7th albums with his “worst album” according to a bunch of angry homosexuals on the internet.

  32. shisha June 16, 2013

    Kelly will sell 150 210 copies 1st week!

  33. Thando June 17, 2013

    All of you f****** should shut the f*** up. No adult male with two testicles and a penis, who listens to beyonce, rihanna, ciara, BRITNEY SPEARS and the ilk should have an opinion on a hip/hop album, you have no f****** credibility.

    Blasphemy is a f****** victimless crime, there is no god there are only people who think there is.

  34. DanYiel Teflon June 17, 2013

    It’s to much yell’n on Kanyes album so ill buy a couple songs on iTunes album? I’ll say HELL NO!!

  35. Caramelboi June 17, 2013
