Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV Drops Off Top Ten of Billboard Chart

Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV continues being the top-selling rap album on the Billboard Top 200 album charts for the third week-in-a-row but has fallen out of the top ten for the first time since its release.

Despite selling more than any rap album, Weezy’s latest disc fell from No. 6 to the No. 11 spot. After bringing in 29,000 in sales over the last seven-days, according to Nielsen SoundScan, 1,615,000 copies of CIV have been sold overall.

J. Cole’s Cole World: The Sideline Story has also taken a tumble, dropping five spots in its fifth week, from No. 11 to No. 16. Cole sold 19,600 copies this time around, bringing his tally to 348,000.

In its first week since kicking off the Watch the Throne concert in Atlanta over the weekend, Jay-Z & Kanye West’s Watch the Throne fell multiple spots as well but did reach platinum status after pushing out 18,900 units in its twelfth week. Now at the No. 19 spot after being at the No. 16 spot last week, WTT’s total sales sum up to 1,013,300.

Stay tuned to next Wednesday to see if Wayne continues his streak.—Christopher Minaya
