The Predictions Are In! Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter V’ Set To Sell…

Published: Saturday 29th Sep 2018 by Sam

Seven years have passed since Lil Wayne released an album, but that all changed this week with the long-awaited arrival of ‘Tha Carter V.’

The hotly anticipated set had been delayed in earnest while the Hip-Hop heavyweight did legal battle with former mentor Birdman.

With that drama in rearview, the project was announced as a surprise earlier this week and hit retail and streaming services on Friday.

So, what are the numbers of one of Rap’s most awaited albums looking like?

Find out below…

Per Hits Daily Double, Weezy is on-course to open at #1 with….

475,000-525,000
[Sales Plus Streaming]
********
165,000-180,000
[Pure Sales]

The figure puts the rapper on course to score the third highest debut of the year so far – behind Drake (732k) and Travis Scott (537k).

Competition, of sorts, arrives tonight via the release of Kanye West‘s mysterious ‘YANDHI.’ But given the performance of Yeezy’s recent projects, it’s safe to assume Wayne has the win on lock.

Your thoughts?

    I’m curious to know how does these predictions work from one day of numbers. It’s quite interesting. And I’m actually surprised people are still into lil Wayne because his music is garbage.

      A fan of Rihanna calling someone else’s music garbage? Hahahahaha
      As the great Alanis Morissette said: “Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
      A little too ironic, and yeah I really do think…”
      Rihanna’s music has been deteoraring since Loud and her sales drop immensely. Her music is pure poptrash!

        Lolol.

      • DanYiel Iman September 29, 2018

        Don’t come for rihanna your whole life is garbage b****

        Rihanna is a marketing joke like Britney Spears. They never were more than that. Difference is Britney was way bigger in her day with inmense sales, and that Rihanna is probably a little bit smarter for life. Also that they modeled Britney to sell albums while with Rihanna they went for the singles success. That´s all the differences I see. The rest is just… zero artistry.

    IM SHOCKED by these #s!

    i had no idea wayne was still hot. i would have expected only 1 Quarter of these sales. Good for him but ill pass

      I was pleasantly surprised as well. But then again, there are a lot of 30 to 50 year old hip hop fans out there. They might not be into mumble rap, but they might check out a Lil Wayne project.

      In a very different kind of market, Carrie Underwood might have benefited similarly. Her album exploded out the gate without a multi-format hit, just based on her across-the-board appeal. Carrie Underwood won American Idol 13 years ago, which means that her fan base skews older than listeners in their teens and early 20s. These buyers and listeners are often ignored in the music industry, but they are a force.

    Great job! I like the album. I AM, however surprised by the pure sales numbers.

  7. Hmmm… September 29, 2018

    Considering the little to no exposure and promo he’s gotten, these are good numbers. Not bad at all. I don’t listen to him anymore but he should still be respected for the authentic hip hop/rap artist he’s always been.

  10. DanYiel Iman September 29, 2018

    I’m not a fan so , his fans really came to play and hear his work!!

  11. Detruth September 30, 2018

    His numbers would be higher too but hes not even on all streaming services yet just some of them.

    “Seven years have passed since Lil Wayne released an album”

    It’s pretty bad when the very first words in a blog post are demonstrably false. And it’s the 2nd in a few days this error has been made. Wayne’s last album was in 2013 called “I Am Not A Human Being II”. That is not 7 years ago.
