Waka Flocka Flame Debut Projected to Sell 35-40K in First Week

Just days after mentor and label mate Gucci Mane hijacked the charts with 60,100 units sold of The Appeal: Georgia’s Most Wanted, industry insiders at hitsdailydouble.com are projecting that Waka Flocka Flame will sell around 35,000 to 40,000 copies of his debut album Flockaveli.

The disc, which includes appearances by Wale, Roscoe Dash and Young Money rapper Gudda Gudda, is sure to land in a higher position then the late Pimp C on The Billboard 200 sales chart.

The beloved UGK MC’s posthumous LP, The Naked Soul of Sweet Jones, is reportedly on track to move around 18,000 to 20,000 CDs. Pimp’s latest album features cameos from Lil Wayne, Drake, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Devin the Dude and of course former partner-in-rhyme Bun B.

Both releases will undoubtedly be outsold by rap producer turned solo artist Bruno Mars’ debut LP, Doo-Wops and Hooligans. The B.o.B and Cee-Lo collaborator is expected to sell around 45-50,000 discs in week one.

    Between Waka Flocka and Pimp C, those #’s should be switched. But in reality, they sound about right.

  • John Cochran

    I aint bought a CD in months,who cares… I don’t listen to the radio so I have no idea what the fuck a Bruno Mars is.

  • Q461

    Theres a problem in hip-hop if this garbage sells 40k and Pimp C sells less than him, dropping in the same week. Hell, thats more than Curren$y’s record sold and that shit is crack. Sad, sad days we living in.

  • http://www.bboycult.com Don mcCaine

    40K for Waka?

    That sounds about right…

  • jhuntdaprodigy

    Yeah, that’s about what u think Waka would sell. Bruno’s projected numbers surprised me, I at least, expected him to do a little over 100,000, if not more then that. Whatever…
