Game’s R.E.D. Album Projected to Sell 90-95K in First Week
Game is set to make an impressive debut on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart come next week with his long-delayed fourth solo LP, The R.E.D. Album.
The one-day sales figures are in and according to the industry insiders over at hitsdailydouble.com the West Coast MC is on track to sell about 90,000 to 95,000 units in his first-week on shelves.
As of press time it is uncertain if that number will be enough to knock Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne from its top spot. The duo just moved 176,800 CDs in its second week.
Chuck Taylor hasn’t released an album since 2008’s LAX, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200. That disc sold 238,000.
