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)!
