Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album Generated 3.3 Million In Its First Week

According to DJ Booth, Lil Wayne‘s new album Tha Carter V generated a total of $3.3 million in the opening week of it being released (September 27th to October 3rd).

The numbers come from HITS Daily Double, who had only C5 tracks in their top 10 highest-earnings songs last week. “Mona Lisa” featuring Kendrick Lamar topped the list with a gross amount of $335,141.

All 23 records from Tha Carter V also appeared in the top 50 highest-earning tracks of last week with the lowest-earning song being “Dope New Gospel” featuring Nivea at No. 41, which gained a gross total of $74,438.

These are amazing numbers for a new album considering the last major first-week project was Eminem with Kamikaze that generated a total of $1.8 million! Congratulations to Wayne, but I wonder how much of this $3.3 million he will receive?!

    • -The Wayniac-

      Very good placement of the tracks u added.. They transition well, from one track to the next

      • Goat Tamer

        Thanks that’s what I was trying to do

    • -The Wayniac-

      Okay, here’s a few..
      *Glory (said “better get em and u got em” a couple times, this may have been originally titled something like Better Get Em or She Said Better Get Em, from the original tracklist)
      *Without You
      *Still Got That Rock
      *Destroyed
      *Admit It
      *pick up your heart & My Heart races on, may have been the original intro and outro..
      *Cross Me
      *Crystal Ball
      *Street Chainz
      *Vizine
      *Quasimodo
      *Faith
      *3rd strike
      *Whats Next from D6 is not that hard, but he starts out with that “yea yea, yea” voice from CV

      • Goat Tamer

        I’m looking for songs that were intended for C5 but didn’t make the cut.. I don’t think all those songs from the mixtapes are from CV

        • -The Wayniac-

          They are original instrumentals, not remixes

          And were made at the same time he was recording CV.. They coulda been.

          • Goat Tamer

            Yes I know but I don’t think he would add C5 songs on his mixtapes.. Anyway I will add them and upload a screenshot to tell me your opinion

            • -The Wayniac-

              I was just talkin about Pick up ur heart/Heart races on being possibly intended for CV.. They immediately popped up in my head when i was thinking..U dont have to put those on there

              • Goat Tamer

                I removed songs that were dissing Cash Money etc cause they were after c5 but I kept a few of the ones you suggested

        • -The Wayniac-

          They were recorded during that time, u never know..

        • Kon Akillo

          You forgot Gotti ft the lox

          • Goat Tamer

            No man it’s there

    • -The Wayniac-

      U wanna switch Mona Lisa and Krazy though..cuz after krazy (fast hard track) is WhatAboutMe(slow singing track) – switch them so that the slow ending of Mona Lisa transitions better into WhatAboutMe

      But Actually u may wanna put Krazy after Let It Fly (‘LIF’ ends with a fast verse from Tune, then Krazy would pick up where that left off..) I would almost rearrange every track, which is what im working on now. A new order/transition to the whole tracklist.. I will release it soon

      • Goat Tamer

        This is the updated one.. I also switched Krazy and Mona Lisa but I took the screenshot before I did that and I also added What Happened after Took His Time

        • -The Wayniac-

          Nice nice, thats about how long the original CV was gunna be, ha.. But yeah im rearranging the 23 tracks for better transition, il release the alternate tracklist soon.. One Hint: Open Letter should have been the second track Following his mom crying.. *Coming Soon*

    • DaNOLASouljah

      Why doesn’t anyone include moment as a CV leftover??
      That track was gutta

      • Goat Tamer

  • Nigga stfu that was drake’s last album on CMB

    • N.O. Samson

      That’s what people say because Drake said “Soon as this album drop, I’m outta the deal”, but CM still promote Nicki & Drake so I actually don’t think that’s true anymore tbh. Maybe Nicki & Drake WILL be free from CM too but only once they’ve completely their contracts. Contractually, all of the other YM artists weren’t actually signed to YMCMB, just YM. Only Drake, Nicki & Tyga were signed to YMCMB. And Lil Twist too I think

  • Tuned #Umar

    Stfu

  • Dead End Hip Hip said Wayne washed Kendrick on Mona Lisa, told you it was obvious af

    • Get it

      They was talking about two different topic. Kendrick did all the extras… Unique flow. It goes both ways. I said Kendrick did the most for a better verse

  • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

    Why wasnt my left nut there to support my right? Sad!

  • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

    But the Gag is, Mannie Fresh gonna win the Grammy when the time comes.

  • YMOB SO REAL

    Don’t call it a comeback
    It was dark, now the sun back
    Hit me hard, but I punched back
    The wheels fell off, I rode the hubcap
    It’s suicide or it’s do or die
    It’s newer days and it’s bluer skies
    I told myself “It’s just you and I”
    Then the breeze came and it blew my mind

  • Giraffe Boy

    you can’t compare it to kamikaze cause c5 had double more songs

    • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

      Yup

    • YungJackBauer

      And kamikaze is trash and c5 is great

      • Weezy504

        Kamikaze ain’t trash

        • °Jahsehxxx°©

          Its not that good

    fuck BET

    Danny you spelled “its” wrong in the title bruv

  • Man Man

    Perfect strangers is underrated af.. that last verse solidified it as 1 of my favorites on the album period

    • Slime Dwise

      A man of culture I see🍷

    • Weezy4prez

      Yep. Just not getting heard enough. that song is a perfect late night radio song

    • YungJackBauer

      Truu. Prostitute flange/ prostitute 2 vibes on that song.

    • HOODYBABY WROTE IT

      • BUT I DO LOVE THE SONG TOO

      • YungJackBauer

        Thank god that aint
        ” featuring hoodybaby”

    • MuddyCupSavage

      Wayne’s love songs are all underrated af. Perfect strangers, deep sleep, prostitute flange, single, without you, etc.

      • Per Arne Kleiven

        Really great songs

    • Patrick H

      Top 5 song.

  • YungJackBauer

    Ouuu nice 1 from a jihad terrorist.

  • HOW DID “I LOVE YOU DWAYNE” MAKE MORE MONEY THAN “DOPE NEW GOSPEL” LOL

    • -The Wayniac-

      Probably cuz not only is it the first thing u hear off the album but ppl have wanted to hear Jacida Carter on a Carter Album for years. Wayne always mentioned her.. And Dope New Gospel is the most underrated on the album, and the newer generation doesn’t know who Nivea is… Uproar is the most overrated

      • ⁶𓅓ºᵛº ᵃⁿᵗ𓅓⁶

        U trippin uproar go hard

  • ITS A JOKE

  • DAMN

  • ⁶𓅓ºᵛº ᵃⁿᵗ𓅓⁶

    Tyga makin money off taste lmao

    • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

      Cant I gedda…?

  • 🐐🐐

    Shout out Mack Maine damn they don’t love Cortez like that 🤣nigga really ain’t his manger anymore but he was in the crowd tho

    • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

      How they fire Tez and still fucked up the tracklist…? Shame!

      • -The Wayniac-

        I fixed the tracklist^

        It transitions from track to track way better. More organized.

  • Andre S

    Waynes interview is on youtube now. The tidal one. And in it he says Nicki and Drake are still his artists. I thought Drake left YM. Does this just mean Drakes loyal to Wayne or is he actually still signed with YM

    • -The Wayniac-

      What we have learned lately is Wayne is all out of wack, totally confused or being lied to.. He thought bob was dead.. Said several times he has never heard CV, then in same interview says he listens to it all the time… Just Krazy

      • MuddyCupSavage

        Bruh shut the fuck up

  • MuddyCupSavage

    Lowkey Wayne’s “love” songs or songs about relationships/women are my favorite. Deep sleep and perfect strangers are my two favorites right now.

  • 🐐🐐
  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    Damn Danny changed it asap 👀
    He really does lurk in the comments watching everything we say https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7c62aec3a3fffe9e7e58237c42836de4ab37fd035273ba483025f794b5789141.jpg

    • -The Wayniac-

      “Danny Fresh”

    • Patrick H

      Hi Danny.

  • 🐐🐐

    Should be getting that wayne and future joint this week

  • 🐐🐐
  • 🐐🐐

    Just posted it

  • -The Wayniac-

    Ok i believe i got it !!!

    Lets all Show MackStupid How to make the CV tracklist!

    CV shoulda looked like:

    1. Love You Dwayne
    Open Letter
    Used 2
    Hittas
    5. Dope Niggaz  ft. Snoop
    Start This Shi Off Right
    Took His Time
    Dedicate
    Uproar
    10. Famous  ft. Reginae
    Can’t Be Broken
    Let It Fly  ft. Travis Scott
    Open Safe
    Mona Lisa  ft. Kendrick
    15. Problems
    What About Me
    Perfect Strangers
    Mess
    Demon
    20. Dope New Gospel  ft. Nivea
    Dark Side of the Moon  ft. Nicki
    Don’t Cry  ft. XXX
    Let It All Work Out

    • Dr Carter

      Nope

      • -The Wayniac-

        It transitions way better.

        And just listen to the start of Open Letter.. It should be the 1st track

        Mack has the tracklist going from Fast track to Slow track right after.. Thats stupid.. I fixed it.
        I mean just listen to the transition from ‘Open Letter’ (end of it) to the start of ‘Used 2’, its Perfect!! I DID IT!

    • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

      Nahfambruhbruhthisaintit

    • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

      The fact that you didnt put Start This Shit Off Right as the first track is the first problem. That song sounds like an opener more than a regular track

      • PenGriffeyIII

        i guarantee it was the first song on the origial c5…. SOOOO glad they changed it… his mom crying leading into dont cry is the perfect start… had all reactors in tears

        • -The Wayniac-

          But thats not what we wanted.. We did not want sad-tears..

          We wanted to cry tears of happiness/joy/hype..

          Don’t Cry need to be like 2nd to last so that u can cry sad tears that the albums ending.. To be sad at the start of an album ruins the start of the album. U don’t wanna be crying during Dedicate or Uproar
          THINK people..THINK

          • PenGriffeyIII

            to each is own

    • Tdub38E

      Don’t Cry should still be #1 and its perfect

      • -The Wayniac-

        nope, only pussies want to start out a rappers album by making the listeners cry (we wanted to enjoy and be hype not cry sad-tears)..u put the sad shit at the end so U Can Cry Becuz The Album Is Ending. (It would make people subliminally like the album even more)

        its krazy how good/amazing it woulda been for them to put DontCry 2nd to last just b4 LetItAllWorkOut (perfect last track)

  • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

    I did question the whole Uncle Bob being alive thing he said. Because if he is, then London Roads takes a hit for that….🤔🤔

  • Don Plantmen

    #FreeC5Part2

  • -The Wayniac-

    The transition from track to track makes it perfect to listen straight thru. U wont skip any tracks with it like this. Just too perfect

    The first few tracks are in perfect place, then i got most of the singing/slower tracks towards the end. Nivea & Nicki are side by side.

    Also we Did Not Want to Cry Sad Tears at the start (Dont cry ft. Xxx) – That needs to be at the end, so u can enjoy the album. Then cry at the end when its ending (or while ur hearing LetItAllWorkOut) – We Wanted to Cry Tears Of JOY Not SADNESS

  • alb313

    side bitch sounds like it would be as big as lollipop on the charts we need that track on the next album🙏

    • -The Wayniac-

      “Shake It” from the original CVtracklist is the Next Lollipop… a title that simple, It Has To Be Catchy

      • Patrick H

        It’ll be a twerk anthem.

      • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

        I want to assume it was produced by Mannie Fresh…it just has to.

  • Turtis

    Man imagine making 75000 off your worst song

  • David D

    Wayne getting all this money

  • PenGriffeyIII

    i miss arrogant wayne…. 🙁

  • Patrick H

    Album of the year.

  • Patrick H

    Huh.

  • Patrick H

    Who?

  • Demarcus Readyfor-wateva Robin

    Minus beats and productions and features I think he get 2.85 assuming Wayne even still pays for a features and beats

  • -The Wayniac-

    Want “chillz” when ur listening to CV ?

    Listen to it like this:

    1. Love You Dwayne
    Open Letter
    Used 2
    Hittas

    Start This Shi Off Right
    Took His Time
