Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter III and IV did main first week numbers. The latter bought over 1,000,000 in its first week, which on the time was extremely uncommon for a hip-hop album. Tha Carter IV did just a little beneath 1M in its first week, which remains to be extremely spectacular. Although the best way gross sales are calculated today are a lot totally different, Lil Wayne remains to be set to make a historic debut together with his newest venture, Tha Carter V.
As Kanye predicted, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V is anticipated to carry down the highest spot on the Billboard 200, however it appears to be like just like the album will have one of many largest streaming weeks, ever. According to Billboard, Tha Carter V is anticipated to garner over 400M on-demand audio streams on the album’s track in its first week. This means Wayne will sit behind Drake‘s Scorpion and Post Malone Beerbongs & Bentleys for having the third largest streaming week for an album in historical past.
If Weezy locks in that high spot with Tha Carter V, it will mark his fourth official #1 album on the Billboard 200. The rapper landed his first #1 album with Tha Carter III. Following that, Tha Carter IV and I Am Not A Human Being topped the chart. The final Wayne album to chart on the Billboard 200 was I Am Not A Human Being II in 2013 which debuted at #2.
