While in major news, Lil' Waynes CD was released yesterday and he is already certified gold isn't that amazing?? Lol... Gold in one day, he's set to be the biggest debut for a Rap Artist this year. He's projected to push no less than 850,000 albums. With the 400,000 sold on first days release, he's already secured the number one spot on the Hot 200.
It's all about Lil Wayne this week as The Billboard 200 prepares for the arrival of "Tha Carter III." The rapper's new Cash Money/Universal album will easily bow at No. 1 next week, as it leads Nielsen SoundScan's Building Chart, to be released this afternoon (June 11) at 5 p.m. ET.
Unweighted first-day sales of "Tha Carter III" at nine leading accounts through the close of business yesterday (June 10), stood at 423,000. Sources close to the album project "Carter" could shift between 850,000-950,000 in its first full week. That would easily give Wayne the biggest sales week of the year, and the best since Kanye West's "Graduation" started with 957,000 last year.
Check back later tonight, or early tomorrow for full chart report on Lil' Wayne, and the official rankings for this week. Be sure to pick up Tha Carter III!
