Young Money Racks Up 142K in First Week Sales, 127K Eminem Fans Order Refill

Both Young Money and Eminem made a huge impact on The Billboard 200 this week, putting hip-hop back on the top of the charts.

We Are Young Money, the debut album from Lil Wayne’s protégés, landed at the no. 9 position after its first week on shelves. The group, which consists of Drake, Nicki Minaj, Jae Millz, Gudda Gudda, Mack Maine, Tyga, Lil’ Chuckee and Lil Twist, managed to move 142,100 units, according to the Nielsen SoundScan.

With the re-release of Eminem’s highly successful Relapse album coming out last week, Shady earned a tremendous bolster on the charts. Not only did Em rise 83 spots to no. 11, but the Detroit Lyricist received a 713 percent increase in sales. While it is unknown how many copies of Relapse: Refill were sold, 127,600 copies of both discs were purchased this week. Overall Relapse has sold 1,694,500 units since entering the charts last May.

The Black Eyed Peas continue their unstoppable reign on the charts by climbing three slots to no. 15 this week. The E.N.D. picked up 104,100 in stats this go-round, making its 29-week sum 1,739,600.

Jay-Z crept back into the Top 40 this week, after ascending 10 spots to no. 32. The Blueprint 3 must have been a last minute Christmas gift from plenty of parents, as the LP garnered 58,700 in sales. After 16 weeks BP3 has a total tally of 1,489,900.

Gucci Mane just made the Top 40 this week, as his new album The State Vs. Radric Davis landed at the no. 39 spot. Despite sliding down two notches, the Atlanta rapper actually received a 2 percent bump in sales. Fans bagged up 42,200 of Guch’s CD this week, making the incarcerated MC’s three week total 173,400. —Max G

        Thanks 4 clearing that up 4 us lowly Hip-Hop fans that never learned 2 read, and Gucci Mane. Another conspiracy from XXL to keep Eminem in the news. They really got us with that one! I can’t figure out how you got the drop on em like that… Well I guess if you understand plain English you could. If ur gonna try to call something out in the future pick something that’s not clearly printed. I mean come on man that was not hard to follow at all.
        If I had to guess “Refill” was the most sold. If your picking it up for yourself of course you want the one with more music and if ur buying as a gift “Refill” is gonna be up front. On another note… Much props to Young Money. Most compilations don’t do as well. Maybe Wanye’s got something? New Cash Money?

        • $ykotic/Don McCaine

          Thanks for the obvious sarcasm, but if you read the comments it’s obvious people skimmed over that part.

    • THAT BOI

      Honestly M&M DID FLOP!! Y U THINK HE HAD TO RE RELEASE HIS ALBUM!!! WHEN DO SUPERSTAR RAPPERS EVER RE RELEASE THEY ALBUM IF IT WAS SUCCESSFUL???? AND ALSO M&M HAS BOTH THE WHITE AND BLACK CROWD AND HE ONLY SOLD 1MILLION AND SOME CHANGE!! THAT M&M ALBUM WAS WEAK ASS HELL!!! AND I BET IF U ASK DR DRE WAS M&M A SUCCESS AFTER LEAVING THE GAME FOR 5-7 YEARS..ILL BET DRE WOULD SAY ITS A FLOP!!! YALL NEED TO STOP HATIN ON LIL WAYNE..REGARDLESS IF U LIKE HIM OR NOT STOP HATIN!! WAYNE IS KEEPIN HIP HOP ALIVE!!! WHAT ARTIST BESIDES KANYE HAS BEEN THIS CONSISTENT??? AND PLEASE DONT SAY JAY-Z!!! WAYNE DOES MIXTAPES AND TOURS!!!

  • E-man

    aite since im first im just gone say what I know one of these comments will say

    1.how the hell did black eyed peas sell freak 104,000 after 29 weeks!!! thats what the hell I want to know???damn they must have some loyal ass fans!!

    2.Young Money actually really didn’t flop in my opnion i thought they were gonna sell at least 90k but damn proved me wrong?? and if yall say they failed yall have to say eminem failed even tho it was a re release he still flopped in my opinion go head and admit it..drake lil lp sold more then that lol

    but as much as i dont want to say this…congratulations to young money they held there ground

    I am glad to see supporting hiphop this late in the year. I’m glad to see gucci laflare is churning sales despite his incarceration. He has enough product out here to keep him hot. He has one of the top 5 cd’s this year. Young money did better than I projected I was thinking maybe 80,000. Eminem was a shocker he is a genious for releasing his album again with bonus tracks that will probably push him to 2 milli sold. Jay-Z and BEP getting there numbers as usual.

  • General

    Where is 50 cent???

  • tommy gunz

    50 sold more than YM, gucci, and refill first week…

    • Hanch

      Thats exactly what i was saying to the PPl who said Gucci Mane was a success with this LP. He is just now getting to what 50 sold in a week. PPl need to face it Going Platinum isnt going to happen anymore unless ur a Superstar. The music biz went back in time to where going gold is a Great Album. Like how is use to be and it would then take you a couple months to go gold! The times of selling 1million copies in a week is over!

      • spboy

        wayne went platinum in a week just last year and suzzane boyle did it in 2

    • General

      Of course he sold more than Young Money, it was a complilation CD…put those numbers against the last G-Unit project T.O.S., which sold more??? Young Money 142K, G-Unit just under 100k…

      And I would hope that his first week numbers were better than Em’s numbers of a re-release, although Em still put up 127k, let 50 re-release BISD with bonus tracks and i bet it doesn’t do 50k…

      And last and least, how could he not outsell Gucci Mane??? Its like askin people if they want a steak or a shit sandwhich for lunch

    • that nigga

      @ tommy gunz: Doesnt matter, Its still a flop compared to 50′s standards. Stop makin’ excuses, my friend. And what the fuck 50 got to do with this article anyway, where’s his total units sold at right now? 201,000? Most likely.

    • RDS

      @ “50 sold more than YM, gucci, and refill first week…”

      50′s numbers also included digital sales, which this article does not mention. You’re not exactly comparing apples-to-apples there, homeslice…

  • united

    Wow Refill did alot better than i thought it would.Its only 7 songs and still went over 100k! Damn Em is a selling machine

  • Apollo Moses

    Really good move by Em…considering how Young Money just threw that album together to have songs to go on the road with maybe a win but anything with Lil Wayne’s named on it I would’ve figured atleast do close to 300k. That jawn might not go gold for a long time…seems like there is a cooling off period here.

  • Vhingrhamesonyo’momma

    of course young money flopped…that shit was inevitable. no mulaah baby!

    • General

      Great another retard on the site’s comments section…

      Of course YM sold more than the Relapse re-release in its first week…There was only 7 bonus tracks on there and most people have already heard or own it or downloaded 5 to 6 months ago…

      Anybody that looks at the situation of both CD’s from an unbiased point of view would see that both did as good or better than they should have done based on the sales trends for those types of projects right now…

    i expected that young money to do like 85k but that’s pretty impressive escpecially in this sales climate, i should’ve known b/c drake’s lp did like 73 ooo and daaamn! em came thru with 127 for 7 songs!??!? how is that in any way a flop when gucci mane (the dumb hood nigga saviour) came thru with 90 k for like 20 songs tahts a big look right there

    • mav

      lol gucci mane the dumb hood nigga saviour lmfao thats so true that nigga is trashy 90k for him is a big flop jeezy always sell more than that and jadakiss album did way better than that wit no buzz and a wack single…100k is good unless youre jayz eminem wayne or 50 nowadays i aint heard ym shit and dont plan on it drake the only one i would listen to millz aight too but i wouldnt cop they shit

  • http://www.freewebs.com/geoffbrennan Gebra

    Young Money sells 140K? What the hell is LW’s record label sitting on Rebirth for – he would’ve sold 300-400K at this time of year, even more in the 2 weeks b4 Christmas – make off with $3-4 Million.

    Idiots – Universal has their heads sanded.

    BTW unless he does some insane expose or something nobody’s gonna care about him at all a year from now – total shame cause he has the talent somewhere under the layers of auto-tune…

    Eminem – don’t make promises you can’t keep – saying he was gonna put out a whole new album then all these kids glued to the greenbean have to go by a copy of the same album – hope y’all have 9 yearold brothers or sons to throw the old copy at.

    50/Rick Ross battle – forget it, Rick Ross’ album faired better retail-wise, got more critical acclaim, and is gonna be around long after the whole PO b-s stops. 50 has seen his commercial appeal falter for the past 3 years, failed albums, failed tv shows – all he has is his vitamin water money and slave-butchering african diamond mine. really, who even wants this guy to continue with rap?

    Make room for Pill! (if his mixtapes were retail i’d drop $30 each for them).

    BEP put out a futuristic, consistant album that white middle-agers, their kids, and NYC clubgoers all listen to. It keeps selling because the appeal on it grows and grows – kinda like the anti-Raekwon.

    Jay-Z – amazing album, amazing sales, amazing videos – can’t wait to see how the hell he is going to top this one though.

    Anyways, who cares – GO DOWNLOAD ADAM TENSTA if you’re not made of retards, or if you haven’t yet get the Pill mixtapes!

    Gebra!

  • E-man

    first off to spy boy(where you get that name)
    I never said eminem flopped I said if you say young money flopped you gotta say eminem did even tho he only put 7 new songs on it that young money album been on damn youtube an all that for like a month already an 142k people went to go get that thats what you call love

  • Federal Ranga

    B.E.P….. I told you their shit undershipped. As the label gets more copies out, like they should’ve in the beginning, the numbers per week will surely increase. At this rate, 2.5x Plat by Valentine’s. Count on it.

  • http://hiphopblog.com sdad

    I am surprised that these guys also making lot of money

  • One900Romello

    B.E.P. is hip hop just choose to cater to a broader audience. Everyone question them and there hoodness. Will I Am is from one of the hardest blocks in L.A. and I may be stating these facts wrong but Easy-E was gonna signed them but it fell through.

  • Brooklyn

    young money 142k in the first week? damn, i definitely didn’t expect niggas to sell that much. but real talk, the only reason why they sold is because of wayne, drake, and nikki minaj. don’t nobody know or care about them other niggas. and “relapse: refill” definitely wasn’t a flop when you consider the fact that 127k people bought an album just for 7 tracks that they could have downloaded for free. and to be selling so much, i don’t know anybody that bumps the bep’s, nor do i know of anyone with a bep album.

  • nicholasdelorejo

    Let me say props to Young Money for selling that much in their first week. I find that amazing that a group compilation disc with no number one single at the time of its release did the numbers 50, a record breaking rap star, did on a solo album. It just goes to show that as much as people dismiss Wayne as an artist, dude knows how to make a rap album that sells. Maybe not a rock album, but a rap album for sure.

    • paper

      How the hell can everybody say thats good numbers i cant turn my radio on for hearing “bed rock” and “i go crazy” Fuck every gurl in the world” and all of those wack ass tracks they got all the buzz with lil wayne, nikki, and drake and to compare them to Tos is dumb because that was a street album and tos sold 102,000 its first week when gunit had all the buzz they did 400,000 and went on to do 4 mill what the problem is lil wayne is losing his buzz with this dumb rock shit his album will flop an drakes will to and if that happens it will be 5 albums in a row from cash money young money that flopped with birdman doing 30k jay sean doing 30k and this is ym doing 140k

  • Mr Jackzon

    To EveriOne That Commented… Both Albums Did More Than 100K In The 1st Week… Thats Far From A Flop

    Is A Great Accomplish. Wayne Is Good. Tho! His Name Doezn’t Guarantee Platinum Sales… There Some Nice Songs On

    these days 142k is not bad at all…

  • Peso

    142,000 for the young money album and Fabolous got 99,000 on his last cd…those numbers should be flipped seriously. Just shows you how todays market thinks and what they like and that is garbage from what I can see. I like Drake, Wayne & Nikki BUT are you serious about this young money compilation sales for 1 week, oh yeah forgot 100,000 of those copy’s is because of the three people I named a minute ago. All I can say is someone’s names not weighin in like it did a year ago and the rock album is lightweight trash, I heard that one to………long live Young Hov lol, now thats someone to invest in

  • Einztine

    These numbers are inflated because of the holiday season. If the YM album or Refill would have dropped on any week other than the week of Christmas, it would have sold half as much.

    50 should have waited to drop BISD in order to have inflated his first week numbers. It still would have been a flop, but not as big a one.

    • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

      sorry, man. but that’s kinda preposterous on a couple counts. inflated? that’s not possible in the 4th quarter.

      1. young money was never hotter than this summer, when “every girl” ran the airwaves. no better time than then. 142k for right now is actually pretty impressive. i expected less due to their drop in momentum.

      2. there’s a reason why artists avoid the 4th quarter release. the press outlets are in vacation mode. it is 10 times harder to get a promotional campaign going between late november and the new year. that’s why–excluding best-of compilations and christmas albums–only the biggest stars even attempt to. eminem is one of those stars who can capitalize despite, and they had a christmas-themed campaign to make it work.

      cash money appears to be generally mismanaged. there’s no excuse or reason for a 4th quarter YM release. that 142k might have been 200k in july. i can’t think of a label that will make a late 4th quarter debut for a new act. it’s kinda like going swimming in a riptide. industry suicide.

  • jbird

    Jae Millz is tha only nigga in this group to fvck with. He done did his sh!t before YM signed him. Mysonne got his back. Remember Mysonne and Cardan back in Mase’s hey day? Jae Millz got Holla At A Playa and best of all My Swag!! I done been waitin for a Jae Millz LP.

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    “i can’t think of a label that will make a late 4th quarter debut for a new act. it’s kinda like going swimming in a riptide. industry suicide.”

    Real talk Ron. That was an August album. Tour for the youngin’s during the summer & back to school show dates.

    Wayne’s got another month free so I presume he will slow down, Drake’s got his album coming, Minaj will be stepping away to do her thing, who’s gonna pay to see the YM bottom-feeders? Only Gudda & Mack are on Birdman’s album. Them other cats are toast.

    2 to 3 cents per copy on a probable 360 deal amounts to nothing. Someone raise their hand if they think Drake will have a YM cypher on his album.

    Real talk that YM album was Wayne’s diaper $ and Baby’s tattoo budget dough.

    • jburg

      LMAO!! That shit is just a tax write off. I went and copped the shit. they got a couple good cuts but overall the shit is pretty weak. I don’t see another album coming from them cats EVER!!

  • Nate

    142K 8 WAYS!! All right Young-NO-Money!!
    That’s 9 ways with Wayne’s cut, and 8 ways after the company gets all of theirs first….

    Maybe in a year each member will see as much money as a entry level college grad but I doubt it.. Maybe they will do o.k. if they get a few shows…. (and not waste all their money on clothes, drugs, and bitches.)

    Young Money through 2010.. then it will be Young and No Money
    Not a joke- TRUTH
    half the group will hang, and half will fall off…

  • http://www.scasd.org jessica

    Everyone, READ THE FUCKING ARTICLE! It said that it is UNKNOWN how many albums Refill sold! While it sold 127,600k THAT WEEK, we really don’t know how many albums it sold the first week.

    In my opinion, 127k is really good for 7 new tracks. It did better than Jay z, who had more new tracks for the first week. Really good move for eminem.

    I personally think young money SUCKS, and the only reason they climbed to the top was because Lil Wayne was on there.

    I can honestly say that I bought Refill, and it’s a great album.

    Unless you have something usefull to say, SHUT THE HELL UP!

  • willshady187

    50 cent and g-unit r done. bisd cd is fuckn shit. rather listen to banks that how shit it is. and for young money bitch like it or hate it there. thats wht people r listen to now. this is 50, fuck 50

  • CBS

    Who the fucks on here calling Black Eyed Peas hip hop? That Will-I-Am dude is a huge homo. He’s gayer than Kanye. You probobly think 808 & Heartbreaks is hip hop too. That shit is techno. Just like kids buying Lady Garbage, pole smokers are buying BEP’s.

  • nicholasdelorejo

    @ Hanch, I think you seem to forget unlike back then people didn’t have the internet to either legally or illegally download albums. I just looked at the top itune albums of 09 and Loso’s Way was the second highest download out of every genre of music, not just rap. And Fab’s physical album sold tremendously low while Susan Boyle is doing record breaking numbers. That’s really the main problen the record industry is facing. It’s not like people don’t like rap music anymore or are now into the classic pop that Susan Boilface is putting out. Its just that they can’t figure out which consumer demographic to cater to.

    Music that gears toward a younger audience (pop, rap, rock) as a whole is not selling like before but certain individuals are still doing record numbers (Em, Jay, BEP). Boilface might be doing some great numbers now but no one can deny that she rose to fame as some Shrek looking muthafucka with a suprisingly good voice. Older music as a whole isn’t doing much either because neither Whitney, Striesand, McCartney, or others aren’t selling as much. It’s not like selling million records is difficult now even with downloading. It’s only possible for artists that can appeal to any demograph of age and genre.

    sorry, but i just read the first 5 comments. Greg, you’re a fucking retard for dragging that response on so long. Refill sucks. Those extra tracks are just weird and stupid. child rapist shit.

We aren’t raging against the machine anymore but we dress it up and call evolution it’s called commercialization…….

    fINALLY SOME INTELLIGENT REAL HIPHOP LISTENERS

    The indie rap artists are murdering the underground

    Just look it up
    Brother Ali’s Us
    Apathy- Wanna Snuggle
    Slaughterhouse
    Only Built for Cuban Links Pt2

    These albums are the arguably the best 09 lp’s and how much did they sell?

    The only few mainstream artists that are lyrically better than these cats are Eminem Eminem and Eminem
    Jay-z has gotten lyrically sloppy and boring and sold out for a pop “Punk”image
    Lil Wayne’s pretty much tanking since Carter 3 with wack mixtapes (Dedication 3(Ceilings wuz aight) and weak albums (Rebirth, Young Money)

    Lupe fiasco (maybe Kanye) are the only hopes for superior-lyrically skilled artist to get some sales and props
    The market is flooded with Pop sounding rap-albums with weak lyrics with shallow substance

    That young money album will not do the numbers folks. At the end of the day it will run out of steam before it even makes it to gold probably.

    Rebirth was pushed back because it is certified ass and Wayne needs to be out to hypnotize his stans that it is the truth. The A&R’s were hoping to get some bigger songs on rebirth but instead you have horrible rock with meh rap. But if the Tik Tok is selling to white suburban kids(because it is fun as they say). Then I guess Rebirth could do something off Waynes name alone.

    Drake is going to do better as a singer than a rapper in the end. He is lyrically sound but he comes off hollow i.e. sans soul.

    If Niki gets necked enough and talks nasty enough then she may get a baller man and can stop being waynes fluffer.
