OutKast’s Idlewild Debuts at #2, Loses Top Spot to Danity Kane

outkast1.jpgThe soundtrack to OutKast’s long-delayed film, Idlewild, has landed in the number two spot on the Billboard 200 chart this week, after failing to outsell Diddy’s Making The Band protégés Danity Kane. The soundtrack, which doubles as the group’s sixth studio LP, moved about 196,000 units, roughly 38,000 less than Danity Kane’s self-titled debut. The first week sales represent quite a drop off for the Atlanta duo, whose last project, the Speakerboxxx/The Love Below double CD, moved 510,000 copies in its first week to debut at number one. Idlewild the movie also hit theaters last week, landing at number nine and pulling in $5.9 million at the box office. Elsewhere on the charts, DJ Kay Slay and Greg Street’s The Champions: The North Meets the South compilation landed at #57, moving just over 15,000 copies.

  • XRAY3000

    ^IDLEWILE SOLD MORE THAN BLOOD MONEY..THERE FIRST WEEK THAN BLOODMONEY WILL EVER SELL..

  • Killa

    Idlewild flopped for a reason: nobody is checking for them like that anymore for numerous reasons. The movie flopped and the album flopped. A lot of people are saying the album is wack but the movie is great. The movie was great but it still flopped. There was a lot of hype around the movie and album but it sure didnt help nothing..maybe it was overkill. Maybe ppl notice they dont have the chemistry they once did

  • Whoa

    wow outkast did numba like ghostface and DMX lol they jus didnt hav a storng first single they workin on there new cd soon so that will move more units

  • d

    OUTKAST ISN’T FINISHED YET. ANDRE’S HEY YA WAS A DOUBLE PLATINUM SINGLE SO NOT EVERYONE IS TIRED OF HIM SINGING

  • Taitano

    You know why this ish happend???!!!
    Cause Andre FELL OFF!! I don’t wanna hear you do your best impression of prince every album…matter fact…just plain EVER!! Get back to that old sound that won ya’ll awards when Pac and Big were goin at it at the Source awards years ago!

  • pop a poppa

    i can’t believe Idlewild the movie did as well as it did. it was the highest-grossing movie based on per screen sales this week. i thought nobody would be checkin’ for the actual movie but it has done excellent considering it was limited wide release. all the seats were taken in almost all the theatres. the soundtrack didn’t move many units the first week but that’s due to the bad choice of the singles. once they make a video for “Hollywood Divorce” the sales should be steady. it’ll probably be one of those slow sellers that ends doin’ a couple million after its said and done.

  • Coolblue2

    The movie didn’t flop. What people fail to realize is that the entire cast and extras are all black. That’s why it only released in 900 theaters, but it still did better numbers per theater than Invincible, and Invincible opened in almost 2000 more theaters.

    The album on the other hand… I’m disappointed. Forget that Dre isn’t rapping much, forget that we waited 3 years on this album: Dre and Big appear together on only 3 songs… This isn’t ok and it needs to stop.

  • jordan-philly

    idlewild is a movie and the movie has a soundtrack. this is not the outkast cd…that will be releasing next year… it’s the soundtrack. it goes with the movie…damn i hate ignorant niggas!

  • ripsta

    WOW I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE THE DA DAY.A MADE UP BAND(NOT HATIN)WOULD SELL MORE THAN AN ESTABLISH GROUP. I GUESS THAT MEAN HIP HOP IS PROBABLY ON IT LAST LEGS. IF A LABEL CAN PUT TOGETHER A GROUP AND SELL RECORD WHY EVEN LOOK FOR ACTS? I ALSO THINK THAT DRE CHOSE TO SING AND SHIT, THEN BIG BOI MIGHT AS WELL JUST GO SOLO. NIGGAS IS NOT CHECKING FOR THAT SINGING SHIT. IT WAS COOL IN 2003 BUT NOT NOW. IT FUNNY DRE ALWAYS SAY HE BORED OR HE GOT NUTHIN TO SAY OR HIP HOP IS BORING THAN SAVE THE SHIT. SAVE HIP HOP, U AND Q-TIP AND NAS BE KILLING ME WITH THAT SHIT. DROPPED A FUCKIN HIP HOP ALBUM THEN FUCK WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE IS DOING. TRUTH BE TOLD LISTEN TO THE STREETS AND THE STREETS IS FEELING HOLLYWOOD DIVORCE. WHY ARE U LISTENING TO THE LABELS HEAD THEY AINT MAKING THE RECORDS U ARE. I MEAN DANITY KANE? I DISGUSTED BY HIP HOP.

  • m

    ok i think da only reason danity kane sold more than kast is because they had a way stronger buzz than outkast… they jus didn’t have dat jumpoff 1st single this time around but they still came out at #2 which is pretty damn good in my opinion!!
    dre does needa stop singin cus its gettin really old!! but knowin them they always surprise us and they jus might come back nex year wit sum heat… who knows… i do think hip hop is falling off though… i haven’t a real hit single since Golddigga… step it up yall!

  • Georgia Peach

    Them boys have always been on top since the beginning. I love 2 c people from my state getting that paper. Dre I miss hearing u rap man please come back 2 da game.

  • Joab “The Millennium Photographer”

    Yes indeed the brothers came in at number two, but do remember that art sells more than “hit records” – peep the long run, and we’ll see who sells the most! That album is mad hot I don’t what the fuck y’all are talking about! Listen to the shit and stop talking! I’m bumping it as we speak; open your minds!

  • http://www.myspace.com/prince_kronix Thought

    Average American Citizen-Goes to record store and looks at an album that got [once again] EXCELLENT reviews] billboard,internet and even media was supporting idlewild movie and album 100% as it seems],and skips it to buy an album cover with 5 WHORES…makes sense?-YUP…

    Thats america people…they dont give a FUCK about Quality…put some pussy on the front cover and boom your gonna sell some records…fucking bitches idk who the fuck they are anyway…

    I saw the movie and the album was incredible…Outkast once again Defining what hip hop Could be if ignorant fuckers woke up and tried something different..

    Outkast is working on “The Hard 10″ as its currently being called [or 10 The Hard Way] and from what ive heard it should be similier to Stankonia? Which should be hot…id like to see some ATLiens style but its cool…if theyre gonna go out [sadly :(] they should do it in a classic way that should atleast get 4/5 album…somethin that will satisfy everyone…

    And Andre,i mean,its ok to do your vocalizing thing here and there,it makes songs better,but you cant make it your main style…andre has spit a total of 6 VERSES ON RECORDS SINCE STANKONIA…thats bad son…but atleast i can safely say Outkast is staying creative AND theyre music [instrumentals] continue getting better and better..

    Put “Hollywood Divorce” out and your fine ‘Kast….i think they know that too….

  • Moon2Jupiter

    THE MOVIE DIDNT FLOP IT WAS ONLY IN 973 THEATRES AND IT OUTDID INVINCIBLE IN $ PER THEATRE NUMBERS SO ACTUALLY IT WAS NO.1….

    AND IDLEWILD CD IS GREAT ITS JUST Y’ALL DUMBASSES DONT EVER WANNA THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX THAT’S WHY Y’ALL AINT DOIN SHIT WITH YOUR LIVES NOW!!!!

    IN THE END OUTKAST WILL SELL WAY MORE COPIES THAN DANITY KANE!!!

  • Amen-RA

    Shout out to Coolblu2 for hor his comment regarding Idlewild. Idlewild is a soundtrack that is solely based on the theme of the movie. Thats what soundtracks are. so of course the subject and theme is going to b different than what they have presented in the past. Idlewild did not have a strong single AND was released on the same day as the highly publicized group Danity Kane. But I think creatively the album was superb, just not as widely accepted by the masses as their previous work. Hollywood Divorce is fire!!! And right on the money.

  • Mrs.Jones

    they should be number 1!

  • http://yahoo adp

    I am a big Andre 3000 fan and I loved the movie and to thought the album was not all that great at first ,but it is the soundtrack to the movie. GO SEE THE MOVIE FIRST AND THEN BUY THE ALBUM. They go hand in hand. Also, realize that Outkast is not the same Kast they were before. They are growing up and out. Expanding their horizons. As long as they don’t stop rapping it’s all good.

  • cloro la mancha

    Dre wake up nigga we need u out here don’t act stupid u know this man we got love for u that singing shit is making me thow up u know what’s putting the best rapper to sing for my bitch it hurts man Mighty O ! nigga what’s wit that D.P.L the albulm coming soon

  • Idon’tcarewhatanyofyouthink

    Man…there really are a lot of retards out there. First of all, the fact that this album didn’t make number one means absolutely NOTHING!!!! If the Back Street Boys hit number one you fake bastards wouldn’t be talking about how great they are. Second of all, you can’t judge how good an album is by how much it sounds like what you expect it to sound like. And I could care less about Dre singing as long as he is singing quality material which he almost always does. And as far as this “street niggas ain’t feelin this” bullshit, real niggas that I know were feelin “The Love Below”. I’m talkin’ about the real cats, the leaders. Most of these fake “street niggas” are really just insecure bitches followin’ trends, and they need music to make them feel “hard” and make people think that they’re cool like the insecure bitches that they are. I know real gangsta niggas that listen to “Blue Magic” and the “Delfonics”. Most of the people who are dissing this album are the same people that made “Laffy Taffy” a big hit…mindless retards with no real appreciation for music. This album isn’t perfect but it still gets 4/5 stars from me.

  • chocolate-ma

    fuck that making the band group!!!! they shit and aint never gone be shit as long as diddy still own the company!!!!!!!!!! aint this like the fourth time diddy tried??? outkast stillthat bomb ass group everybody gone listen too even when they old and gray!!!!!!

  • chocolate-ma-2

    chocolate-ma you are a retard, they have a #1 CD, what do you have? probably herpes

  • http://www.myspace.com/rongoodman83 Ron

    lol…The music business is fake and ya’ll are silly to think that music will be the way it used to be. Most artists would prance around in a rabbit costume just to move units. Danity Kane is a (I hope) an one album wonder…OutKast been around for 10 years and I know Andre 3000 is tired of being obligated through contract to make music. They have one album left and either way it goes as a fan I’ll get it..have all the rest of ‘em. And yeah music in general in the mainstream sucks big nutz overall o_O

  • michelle

    Danity Kane deserves to be #1 all da way
