Even though Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter IV album sold just under one million copies in the first week, the album did still go platinum worldwide by selling over 1.03 million! The 964,000 copies Billboard counted are just sales from the US. We already know C4 debuted at #1 on the Billboard chart, but it has also topped the United World Chart too, which is another great accomplishment for Weezy. This album marks Wayne‘s second highest first week sales behind Tha Carter III that sold 1.05 million in 2008.
Tunechi just keeps on winning though, because now Billboard have reported that Tune has 12 songs simultaneously charting on the Billboard Hot 100! Only The Beatles have topped this achievement, having placed 14 songs on the Hot 100 in 1964.
