Kanye and 50 Cent’s Sales Plummet, Chamillionaire and Twista Make Top 10 Debuts on Billboard Charts

chamillionaire11.jpgAfter putting up huge first week numbers in their epic battle for the top of the Billboard charts, Kanye West and 50 Cent will both see sales drop offs of nearly 80% this week. According to Nielsen Soundscan, Kanye’s Graduation—which scanned nearly 1 million units in its first week in stores—saw a 76% decrease this week. The Louis Vuitton Don’s third studio LP moved just under 226,000 copies and will surrender the No. 1 spot to country music star Reba McEntire. Similarly, 50’s Curtis saw a 79% dip from his first week total of 691,000, for a second week tally of nearly 143,000 units.

Despite their huge drop offs, Kanye and 50 still managed to outsell the two highest selling hip-hop debuts on the charts this week. Houston’s Chamillionaire scanned 79,332 copies of his sophomore effort Ultimate Victory, which will place him at No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200. Just behind Cham we see Chicago’s Twista taking the No. 10 slot after moving 40,791 copies of his new project Adrenaline Rush 2007. Elsewhere on the charts we see Rick Ross landing at No. 62 with his early Suave House album Rise To Power which sold 11,658 copies. Havoc of Mobb Deep didn’t fare as well with his debut solo album The Kush. The QB native will land at No. 173 with just under 4,000 copies sold.

    Damn…Havoc only sold 4,000 copies
    this is just scary like these rappers supposed to sell at least 100,000 for the record label to make a profit. I see a lot of publicity stunts in the future. one luv

    first man
    i can see kanye’ shit sellin 4 mil and 50′ shit sellin 5 mil coz 50′ album is a CLASSIC

  • John Brown

    DAMN!!! Is anyone else going to consider that this is another first for 50. This is the first time that his album will take more than 3 weeks to go platinum. GRODT did it in 2 weeks and TM did it in 4 days. Curtis is going to go platinum in a month. WOW!!! Then again like he said “it doesnt matter anymore people, VITAMIN WATER!!!”

  • jburg

    told you so!!! First week sales mean nothing. Its a marathon not a sprint!! Its all about how many you have sold after two or three months. Or are people even still listening and talking about the cd two or three months from now.

  • Kurt GoBang da2nd

    uhm, did anyone think that these albums would sell as strong the weeks following the debut (hyped to all hell) week? especially the way pop culture is nowadays. it’s here today, gone tomorrow. once the hype is over, everything else involved goes with it, and in this case, it was those crazy record sales. i’m surprised they sold as many as they did. what i’m not surprised about is havoc only selling 4,000. he could have sold more giving them away for free…

  • http://myspace.com/djmydas DJ Mydas

    ouch to Havoc…i copped it, though…shit is cool

  • http://myspace.com/loonyt706 loony T

    Im laughin my ass off at Havoc’s lame ass. This strawberry cake ass nigga shouldn’t have dissed the south. We hold the key to your success u washed up ass nigga. 4,000 copies huh, u didnt even sell a copy to everyone in your own neighborood u bitch. Better go perform Quiet Storm and Shook Ones in a nursing home somewhere cause your done.

  • Worley

    Havoc sold 4,000 copies? He could have done that out of his trunk. The glory days of ’95 are definitely over.

    Chamillionaire will have to wait a little bit longer for that Ultimate Victory.

  • http://www.reggaetonpesao.com Carter32008

    Damn it looks like the Mobb Deep days are over, (The QB native will land at No. 173 with just under 4,000 copies sold), they should just get Nore, Nas, Nature & AZ and drop an QB’s Finest album for summer 2008

  • fireforreal

    If anyone else dropped in sales like that 50 would be talking major shit,but he’s gonna keep his mouth closed because if he did 691,000 the first week or 6 million he knows in his heart his fame is dying down and his album like the last is garbage.

  • Fixda

    Yo Havoc can eat a dick!4000 and he’s got the nerve to diss Kanye!The whole G-Unit shit is lost…

  • D.O. The King

    I can’t believe Cham’s album sold that little. His album is FAR better than either Kanye or 50′s releases. All of the numbers show that hip hop is truely dead.

    Wow…cat’s are hilarious. All the Hav bashing. I mean damn, it’s not a G-Unit project, but 4g is still low, shiiiit I can do that; no budget, no promos straight street hustle. It’s good to see so many cats up on the business tip too. Like dudes said it’s not a sprint, and a lot of the cds won’t be thought abou months from now. The one’s with better music and art are gona last. 50 is straight phoning it in these days. Never was a huge ‘Ye fan. Too bad we can’t see how many were downloaded…

  • Rich Arte

    @Rich Nice….think about changing your screen name…it’s a little too close for comfort. Go by “the nicest” or something. I own this Rich Arte shit…

    @50, it looks like a brickhouse. You said Kanye was gonna decline after the second week…but you forgot to mention yourself.

    damm the sales is down but only because of bootlegging and hav floped hard as fuck and that album wasent even relesed threw g-unit it was put out their by koch just like prodigys return of the mac and even tho 50 sales are down in america he sold about 2 million in europe and other places and nelson soundscan only counts the album sales in american,canaida,and some parts of the uk it does not get the total tally across the world so 50 already 2 times platnium world wide idk how kanye is doin but it dont really matter who “won” because the whole perpouse was to get people to got out and support the music and it worked

  • G-Unit Soldier

    You haters u better shut the fuck up 50 is the man who is Kanye? how many records did he sold all his time being? compare to 50. Like he said himself: i even don’t wanna rap now cuz life is made.

    GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG-uniiiiit!

  • SOUTHERNBREED

    DAMN HOMIE!!!!!!!!
    people getting sick of the shit talking and beefing with rappers when it’s time for the album sells!
    havoc,like i said before is straight garbage,
    prodigy album ain’t selling shit and
    young buck outsold the whole unit!
    shout out to buck,you need to leave and do your thing with your label!
    50 starting to see how it feels now!
    he always talks shit about others album sells now,his shit ain’t moving units like he want!
    you get it how you live!
    yaa diggg!

  • marc

    another flop by a G-Unit Member damn Havoc now i know why u cant buy more jewlery

  • yak

    Aye its all good its clear cham had the best album in a minute by far but he will have to grind it out, once ppl start talkin about how good his album is others will start to support even if they d-loaded cuz they will respect what hes tryna do, and talk about dude all u want but no1 wants to see him leave the game because hip hop fans are dead, the fans are the reason, 50 and ye have nothin else to offer all their good songs are on the radio and cham has a great album

  • Cuban Link

    Adrenaline Rush 2007 sucked ass.

    Cham deserved better but not enough promotion

    and wtf Havoc dropped? Im from Queens and I havent even heard about this shit, wow.

  • yak

    50 and ye are going to keep falling, everyone that wanted the album already has it, dont be suprised if in about 3 months cham is right there w/ them on sales, dude always grinds to the fullest, last album ridin came out 3 months after the album and he jumped up the charts so fast, remember 50 put out 5 videos for this album, and ye put out 3 plus 2 songs leaked along time ago and another is from an old mixtape and he only has 13 songs so they have nothing else to offer, the event sold there cds not them, so there moment is over

    ITs time for chamillionaire to do his thang

  • ceezy4sheezy

    twista’s album is the shit he probably would have sold more if he didn’t put out that garbage single with pharrell

    ALL BS ASIDE I’M FROM CHICAGO & WANTED KANYE TO WIN, I COPPED BOTH CD’S & TWISTA’S GOTTA REPRESENT! BUT WHAT ABOUT 50 CENT & HIS DIE HARD “STAN’S” I MEAN FANS WHO SAID KANYE WOULD FALL OFF & THAT 50 WOULD SURPASS HIM THE NEXT WEEK!!!! 50′S ALREADY 335,000 CD’S BEHIND KANYE, IT’LL TAKE THE GREATEST MIRACLE OF ALL FOR HIM TO CATCH HIM! IT’S A WELL KNOWN FACT THAT ALL YOUR SALES MAINLY COME FROM THE 1ST 3 WEEKS, AFTER THAT THE RECORD COMPANY EITHER DECIDES TO SPEND MORE $$$$$ ON 1 MORE VIDEO OR MOVE ON TO THE NEXT PROJECT. 50′S ALREADY RELEASED 5 VIDEOS- 2 FOR THE HOOD 1.STRAIGHT TO THE BANK 2. I GET MONEY ,1 FOR THE LADIES 3. AMUSEMENT PARK & 2 FOR THE MTV CROWD 4. AYO TECHNOLOGY FT. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE & 5.FOLLOW MY LEAD FT. ROBIN THICKE. UNLESS HE WANTS TO COME OUT OF HIS OWN POCKET ( WHICH HE CAN AFFORD)TO FINANCE MORE VIDEOS WHICH HE’S A SEMI-SMART BUSINESSMAN HE’LL ADMIT WOULD BE DUMB AS HELL THIS RACE IS OVER!!!!

  • AKATHEREALIST

    Seeing that maybe a good 22% of commenters on this posting didn’t know, I will reiterate-Chamillionaire has the best album this year, besides UGK, who I’m pretty sure he’s tied with. And UGK & Cham are from the same city, Houston (if you can consider Port Arthur Houston), go figure. But real talk ignant XXL commenters, The Ultimate Victory is something worht your $13.99. I’m 14, by the way, from VA, and I spent my lunch money on that album. it was 19 songs. UGK had a double album, which was 29, but so far, I’ve seen no one put out that many songs that were as good as Cham’s are.
    GO GET IT

  • Agee

    A message to 50 cent . Kill the promo for this album. Start working on your next joint. You can get in touch with me and I help you get the glory you had when your first album came out. Some of the songs you put out on mixtapes between your last album where better than the songs you have on your latest album. Curtis if you read this get in touch with me at Mragee@gmail.com.

And Kayne got his lyrical game up. And he’s cocky about his shit so of course more people finna get his CD to see if the shit he sayin about his album is true.

    50′s album sucks, only Amusement Park is good but the rest is garbage…even the Dr Dre track is wack as crack. Kanye is improving everytime he drops….Is Jay Z gon to feature Nas on American Gangster and when are they working on a dual album..thats the way to get hip hop back in the map. Hip Hop aint dead, its in a coma and the South is responsible for that but now its slowly creeping back to New York as this bling bling shit is played out and boring now…back to lyrics now…thanks to Kanye, Jay Z, Nas, Obie Trice, Young Buck for keeping it lyrical throughout the storm or the reign of the South which is finally coming to an end…no more shine for Cham, Three 6 Mafia and all these stupid wack lyricist rappers from the South (only real one is
    Scarface)…bring the crown back to New York to the lyricist…no more dubs, gold rings and chains coz ya aint selling no more so ya cant afford them…start say somethng in ure raps niggaz…like Nas said…”you went platinum? well lets see you do that with ure next album”…..50 Cent ure ass is over boy, what u gotta say now, Young Buck outsold you like he said…there is alot of pressure for Dre and EMinem when dey drop so they beta deliver quality material. All the lyricist Rize…bigs up to Common for a great album too….GOOd Muziq is the only stable with talented artist who can put out classic albums, big ups (Kanye, Common and John Legend) u remind of the La Face days back in the days of TLC….Usher, hope u gon work with R Kelly in ure new album….Havoc u know u nuts by dissing Kanye coz he can put an end to ure career ure 4 000 copies sold phony @$$! hahhaha, pardon me but i had to laugh @ dat…no more fucking ure wife in a thousand dollar mattress now hey? u should have not burn ure bridges with Nas now look @ u fcuk ass, G-Unit did not cum thru for ya. cant wait for the new Outlawz, Young Buck gon make them shine…we gotta beta producers here in South Africa then those fcuks u have there……Hi-Tek, Scott Storch ur are real prods…what happened to Def Squad?…other peace…Supreme Being aka the “i”

  • http://www.myspace.com/gmshiphopmusic g.m.s.

  • Honestasicanb

    Havoc and Prodigy aint shit period. Had a few singles. What are they really known for? Being shitted on by some of your best rappers. That’s it. Some of the greatest disses ever including these two idiots. Hit Em Up, Take Over, and even Nas took time to shit on Prodigy. No one should respond to this guy. T.I. first album (I’m Serious) sold more than 4,000 copies last week and it came out damn near ten years ago and Havoc shit came out, whenever it did. How are you going to be the weakest rapper in a group of two weak ass rappers and try to diss. Matter fact no one really knows him. It’s prodidgy or mobb deep, nobody gives a shit about him. The only reason this nigga was rewarded any fame because he was in the group with a nigga noone else in the industry liked. And cham’s shit is some of the best music I have heard in a while, sales will pick up but it should come out in march like it was suppose to and guarantee it would have move the units everybody that really listens to music know it should have moved.
