UGK Projected To Sell 75K, Flo Rida Right Round 50K In First Week

With new releases by Southern acts UGK and Flo Rida hitting the shelves last Tuesday (March 31), music industry resource HitsDailyDouble.com has posted their projections on each album’s first week sales.

According to the site, UGK 4 Life is on track to sell between 65,000 to 75,000 come Wedneday’s Nielsen SoundScan report. Featuring cameos from Snoop Dogg, 8Ball and MJG, Lil Boosie, Webbie, E-40, Too $hort, Akon and Ron Isley, among others, the CD will be both the group’s last effort as well as its first release since the passing of co-founding member Pimp C.

Flo Rida’s sophomore effort R.O.O.T.S. (Route Of Overcoming The Struggle), is pegged to rack up around 40,000 to 50,000 in sales. The Atlantic rapper has broken records with his first single from the project “Right Round,” which was downloaded 636,000 times in one week. The song surpassed the sales numbers for “Low” - his record breaking hit with T-Pain from last year, which moved 467,000 units.

HitsDailyDouble did not include a projection on Bow Wow’s new album, New Jack City II, which also dropped this week. – Elan Mancini

    ***Don’t just support them because they’re legends. . .support REAL music, period. This is a quality album, that wasn’t just thrown together with songs that have a dance. This is music.

    I do feel this album was under promoted. . their last had a lead single with a buzz before the album dropped (Intl. Players Anthem).

    Regardless **** out of ***** Stars. . .it’s hard to get ** nowdays. -1

  • HERM

    I hear ya, The Truth, about the under promotion. I never heard a single, or even knew they had an album coming out until recently. But I just copped it and I’m digging it.

  • Mutada al sader the king

    I’m a pick this up too, wonder why they released it so soon though. Could have kept it in the vault for a sec or two. Built the anticipation. Hip Hop has ADD though. But who knows how many more songs pimp and the bun got in the stash. lol

    Forgive me for this but..

    75K ? A dead nigga is out selling Jenny Jones….sorry.

    cop the DOOM album ppl … i promise you will not be disappointed

  • Nate

    Almost copped the Doom album yesterday but want to preview it first- besides on the back it doesn’t list the names and # of tracks.

    I guess if you are from the South and like Nelly style real big than you might want Flo Rida. Or if you are heavy on T-Pain’s d*&k than maybe Flo is your thing…

    UGK. Nice- got that yesterday. Very good, just like the last album except it’s one CD so less filler. Keep a 2nd copy for the car along with the last album and Outkast- good for road trips.

  • SOUTHSIDE A-TOWN
