Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Album Debuts At No. 1 On The Billboard 200 Chart + First Week Sales

Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album Debuts At Number 1 On The Billboard 200 Chart + First Week Sales

A week ago on September 27th at midnight, Lil Wayne released his twelfth studio album of his music career – Tha Carter V.

After hearing about the projections a few days ago, the first week sales for C5 are now in. According to Billboard, the album has sold around 480,000 units (streaming included).

Tunechi‘s latest project has also debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, which is now his fourth No. 1 album on the chart following Tha Carter IV in 2011, I Am Not A Human Being in 2010 and Tha Carter III in 2008, so a big congratulations to Tune is in order.

A couple more achievements for Tha Carter V are that it has had the third-biggest week for an album in 2018 behind Drake‘s Scorpion and Travis Scott’s Astroworld, as well as that it has had the second-largest streaming week ever for an album with 433 million on-demand audio streams while Scorpion had the biggest (745.9 million)!

First Week Sales For 2 Chainz’ Album Dedicated To Lil Wayne “ColleGrove”

First Week Sales For 2 Chainz Album Dedicated To Lil Wayne ColleGrove

The first week sales for ColleGrove are in! The project, which was released via Def Jam Recordings last week on March 3rd, had 35,340 sales. However, that total increases to 50,735 if you count streaming.

I know ColleGrove was a 2 Chainz solo album in the end, but I thought I would keep posting updates about the project considering it was an album dedicated to Lil Wayne and had Wayne featured on nearly every song.

Don’t forget that you will also be able to purchase a physical copy of ColleGrove in stores on March 25th that may possibly include new collabos from Tity and Weezy! What are your thoughts on the first week sales?

In the video above, Mack Maine surprises Lil Wayne with the new Young Money Discover debit card that they recently launched for people to use in the US. This is basically an advertisement for the debit card and Weezy plans to use his to buy Marley G some new earrings 😆 The footage was also shot by DJ Scoob Doo, so I wonder when he plans on giving us some news on The Nino Brown Story Part 3
