Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being Goes #1 On Albums Chart

Lil Waynes I Am Not A Human Being Goes 1 On Albums Chart

Two weeks after Lil Wayne’s “I Am Not a Human Being” bowed at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 exclusively from download sales, its CD release pushes it to No. 1 in its third chart week. The set moves from No. 16 to No. 1 with 125,000 sold (up 443%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.

It’s the first No. 1 to climb to the top (as opposed to debuting there) since a year ago, when the “Twilight Saga: New Moon” soundtrack moved 2-1 in its second week on the list. (Most albums that hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 tend to do so by debuting there.)

“I Am Not a Human Being’s” 16-1 jump on the chart is the largest leap to the top since the chart dated Jan. 19, 2008, when Radiohead’s “In Rainbows” zipped 156-1. It debuted a week early on the list because retailers began selling it before its official street date. – Billboard

Congratulations to Tunechi for getting top of the charts :!:

  • I’m a moaner

    I didnt understand why the label only dropped the physical version 2 weeks later. But as soon as it was released the album went to number one. Hopefully this will be a lesson learned.

  • Step

    YEAHH! FREE WEEEZYYY!!!!

  • yeedee

    Lol thats still good. Carter 3 sold crazy amount because Lollipop was on it. so most the people that bought C3 probly didnt even care for the real rap songs just the LG’s wanting that pop lollipop hit.

    @young nas The album actually has sold 259,000 in 3 weeks the digital downloads do count as sales. big achievement considering we all heard it a while ago still a good album, just waiting for tha carter iv which is gona be crazy

  • yeedee

    but really i think that Lil Wayne lost alot of fans after Rebirth came out. I dont know how Rebirth sold more than this album honestly.

  • Brandon Crain

    Plain an simple the best rapper alive. He does not have to prove nothing now.

  • madbassist777

    and most of us probably thought it would be a bad idea for him to do digital first and then try to sell a hard copy album.
    Even people that don’t like Lil Wayne, Birdman, or the rest of the Young Money|Cash Money group have to admit that they sure know how to do business

  • FELICIA

  • waoh

    Lil Wayne joins late Tupac Shakur as artist who reached #1 while in prison. (1995 Me Against the World)

    “I’m putting out a [Wayne] album called I Am Not a Human Being and I’ll probably drop it on his birthday, September 27…I’m not even putting it out in stores. We just gonna put it out virally and maybe package it up for Christmas. Give ‘em a hard copy later for fan appreciation.

    FROM SOLITARY CONFINEMENT. DAMN!!!!!

    but i wonder if thats why wayne changed the ep to an album?…who knows

    @c4 free weezy C4 man weezy don’t freestyle it’s not freestyln n plus all his ustreams u can watch on YouTube u can clearly see he can’t freestyle he even says it in one before he went to jail he does the same thought processing as jayz and records his verses in his mind there’s a big diff Charles Hamilton freestyle even tho I don’t listen to him lil Wayne is one of my favorite rappers but far from being the best there’s mufukas with no deal or outlet that will merk Wayne I can name plenty waynes spontaneous clever lyrics charisma nn delivery is wat makes him a talented rapper trust he does not freestyle
