The numbers don’t lie ladies and gentlemen!
964,000 Copies Sold
Nielson Soundscan numbers are in and New Orleans Rapper, Lil Wayne, is quickly approaching “A Milli” in album sales of Tha Carter IV. It sold 964,000 in its first week!
It seems as if Wayne’s early leak of Tha Carter IV had little to no effect on his album sales.
The “How To Love” MC broke the former iTunes first week sales record held by Jay-Z and Kanye West for their collaborative Watch The Throne album. Tha Carter IV sold 345,000 digital copies via iTunes!
Now we can only wonder if Weezy’s album sales will be used to pay for all the lawsuits he’s accumulated in 2011…
Only Time Will Tell!
