Offset Premieres ‘Quarter Milli’ Video As Debut Solo Album Heads To #1 on Billboard 200

Published: Tuesday 26th Feb 2019 by Rashad

Good things come to those who wait it seems.

For, after a serial delay, February 22nd brought with it the long-awaited arrival of Offset‘s debut solo album, ‘Father of 4’ (click here to stream).  Lined with high profile features from the likes of Cardi B, Travis Scott, 21 Savage, J. Cole, Quavo, and more, the set zoomed to #2 on iTunes sales charts just hours after its unveiling (blocked from the top by Lady Gaga‘s ‘A Star is Born’ soundtrack).

Yet, its saving grace – much like the solo efforts of his Migos brothers Quavo and Takeoff – has come from the streaming realm.  So much so, industry analysts predict the project will outpace the competition (including Gaga and her post-Academy Award acclaim) for next week’s top spot on the Billboard 200.

To ensure such, Offset has unveiled a cinematic video for the album’s tune, ‘Quarter Milli.’  Tapping Gucci Mane to assist, the clip – set in the 1920s – sees the duo as old school gangsters who’ve band together to pull of a bank heist before jetting off into the sunset with a quarter milli in cash.

Look inside to see the visual:


 

Offset’s ‘Father of 4’ Album

Predicted Sales (SPS):  77,000-82,000

Predicted Sales (Pure):  4,000-5,000

Predicted Billboard 200 Debut:  #1

If the prediction above rings true Offset could be the only member of Migos to have secured the top spot with his solo effort, despite having the second-best first week sales (Quavo’s debut scored 99,000 its first week).

That, of course, all depends on if the nation’s current top-seller – Ariana Grande‘s ‘thank u, next’ – is ready to abdicate the position. [source]

    They might as well take pure sales away, I mean who still by albums? Unless it’s your fav

      Nah. It’s still cool to see how many albums were actually sold and how much is based on the streams of songs from the album.

    • SMH February 26, 2019

      Because pure sales will always matter. Any idiot with 20 devices can stream a song on repeat all day long. It takes a true talent to make you actually go out and spend your money on their project. 4-5k sales is atrocious and laughable, just like being certified platinum and not even selling 250k albums.

    But i feel like pure sales is still relevant. There are times I stream a playlist and a song plays that i don’t care for. Does that go towards their streaming numbers because if so that’s crazy because I don’t pay half of the songs I listen to on a playlist any attention. But when I purchase an album that is super personal I wanted to listen to an entire body of work I feel like streaming shouldn’t be counted but I’m so old school I need to get up-to-date with how things are now LOL

    For laughs and giggles I really hope this out sales Quavo first week and long term sales 😂

    Quarter Milli and workin me are the only songs I like like solo from them. They need to ditch this rushed solo project and finish Culture Part 3.

      It shouldn’t be too hard to achieve.

    PAYOLA *autotune*

  8. Caleb February 26, 2019

    Kicking Quavo’s ass, even if these numbers are pretty mediocre.
