J.Cole Set For Huge First Week Sales With New Album ‘4 Your Eyez Only’

Published: Friday 9th Dec 2016 by Sam

Hip-Hop titan J.Cole looks set to live up to that billing on next week’s Billboard 200.

Today brought with it the release of the MC’s fourth studio album. And while the set is titled ‘4 Your Eyez Only,’ it appears it’s for everyone’s CD collection – based on the numbers who’ve rushed to retail to purchase the LP.

Full story below…

According to Hits Daily Double, initial sales of the project have Cole on-course to open with a first week US figure between 400,000-500,000.

No word yet on the ratio of sales to streams, but HDD assert that purchases make up a significant portion of the sizeable pie.

Beyond being a major feat in today’s sales-starved climate, it’ll serve a huge look for the rapper given that fans only had one week’s notice of the album’s arrival.

Stay tuned!

    I remember Mariah did that in 2005 with the emancipation and went in to sell 5million.

    • πŸ’Ÿ December 9, 2016

      • Danzou December 9, 2016

    It’s a wonderful album and I’m so glad it will open with great numbers. This goes to prove that if the album is of quality people will still go out and purchase it.

    • LmfaoHoe December 9, 2016

      Yes that’s what I’ve been trying to tell people, Adele is a prime example. Whether sum people like her or not, Quality is first added for most. So glad J Cole is doing such numbers. maybe then labels will stop signing wack no artists rappers and get the real rappers shine and credit for their talent.

      • GurlWepa1989 December 9, 2016

        I concur.

      Is that shade toward Rihanna the flop of the year if so im on the floor lmao. Hilarious. In my honest opinion Anti actually deserved no mominations.but she got them anyways.

      • JustOne December 9, 2016

        Because there is no such thing as “momenations” dummy…

      • GurlWepa1989 December 9, 2016

        Flop of the year? Really? Check your stats. According to Billboard, recording academy and countless magazine outlets it’s one of the best Album of the Year. Stop with your redundancy.

    • Pat December 9, 2016

      Guh yall a mess on here. I don’t think there will ever be a post where these two h**$ names are brought, smfh!

  7. Hive December 9, 2016

    When will Rihanna?

    • Danzou December 9, 2016

      When J Cole gets seven platinum albums in a row then you can shade until then leave the messiness on the back burner and celebrate hip hop

  8. Meme December 9, 2016

    So proud man. I love seeing my brothers and sisters do well. I’m even more proud of the fact that rap sells so well. It’s crazy how r&b totally lost its consumption but rap is still selling like it’s 1999.

  9. oopsUPsideDaHead December 9, 2016

    “Neighbors” is my favorite track

    Cole is clearly the best storyteller in hip hop.

  10. Danzou December 9, 2016

    now for Nicki to drop and I’m set for this year.

    • Keri Qween December 10, 2016

      Itll flop. Shes done

      • Danzou December 10, 2016

        Projecting your faves insecurities on everyone else isn’t healthy.

    • BEY>RIH December 10, 2016

      LMAOO and you claim you aren’t gΓ y….

  11. Bravo!! December 9, 2016

    Love bruh..

  12. RihYonce December 10, 2016

    Neighbors & Deja Vu are my favs! I loved this album. Cole is everything he’s grown so much since ’09 ❀️

  13. Truthtea December 10, 2016

    Be honest how much , if promoted right…will Nicki’s next album sell 1st week n overall??

    • FormationNavy December 10, 2016

      165-200k 1stweek , gold overall, her platinum days are over!!

    • Danzou December 10, 2016

      She’ll go platinum. Her tours always sell out and support her eras well and she always goes platinum with her singles. Plus streaming she’ll go multi platinum.

  14. Keri Qween December 10, 2016

    Yass cole world. No gimmicks needed

    • BEY>RIH December 10, 2016

      Right. Just waiting on other artists to be able to sell albums…

  15. Theman December 11, 2016

    So much for that streaming crap. Give the people quality & they’ll support. He’s a real artist.
