Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV Continues Reign on the Charts

Hip-hop still reigns supreme on the Billboard Top 200 chart as Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV shows no signs of slowing down.

In its second week of release, Weezy’s latest album maintains the No. 1 spot with 218,800 copies sold for a total of 1,184,100 million, clearly making it the biggest hip-hop record so far this year.

While Wayne album sits comfortably at the top, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s joint venture, Watch the Throne, lost ground this week, dropping two spots to No. 6. WTT sold 49,300 this week for an overall total of 836,000.

Game’s The R.E.D. Album took a serious nosedive, dropping 11 spots to No. 19. The Cali-MC sold 18,800 copies of the album this week for a total of 155,500 sold in its three weeks of release.

After being on the Top 200 chart for 13 weeks, Royce Da 5’9” and Eminem’s Bad Meets Evil EP, Hell: The Sequel, fell just one spot to No. 21, selling 17,400 copies for an total tally of 515,900.

And Pitbull’s album, Planet Pit, got revitalized this week, jumping 20 spots to No. 27, with 14,100 units moved, adding up to a total of 205,900 CDs sold in its 12 weeks of release.

Check back next week to see if Lil Wayne can hold onto the No. 1 spot for the third week in a row. ⎯Brooks Newkirk

    So Wayne went from selling 960 000 the first week to 200 000 this week? Damn,thats a big fall,it dropped almost 80% in sales in one week.
    Although the sales are very good but its a big fall.

    Yeah a huge drop. Makes all those rumours about Baby buying those albums sound even more legitimate now.

    or everyone went out and bought it when it came out.. so the second week everyone pretty much had the album..

    • RapMusic25

      Yeah maybe,but if his fans have already bought it now,then his fanbase must have taken a huge drop cause the last Carter sold alot more and it did so for many many weeks.If Wayne continues with an 80% drop next week,he wont even sell over a 80k,and thats only in its 3rd week.

        U mean how WTT has not even went Plat with supposedly two of the greatest of all times. Im just sayin keep it 100 dont blast the dude. The album is aahhh but he still put up numbers. So, clearly its some folks out here buying. I say lets see wht C5 does tht will b the tell all.

    “John”, Drake’s hook on “She Will”, Wayne’s “I wish, I wish, I wish you would bitch” line on “It’s Good” and Nas’s verse on “Outro” were the only things that were “hot” about this album.
