The Numbers Game: Rebirth Is #2

I don’t think anybody expected for Rebirth to do a million like Tha Carter 3, but is 170,000 copies in the first week a fail? Depends. Some say no because of the leak being months ahead of the actual release while some say that it a lose because it’s his follow up to C3. Hey, Weezy still got fans to buy his Rock album, I guess time will tell us more when we see the overall sales.

Other thoughts:
A lotta people got some sales boost from the Grammy’s.
Styles P & DJ Green Lantern’s The Green Ghost Project didn’t crack the Top 200.
Statik Selecktah’s 100 Proof (The Hangover) didn’t either.
What does that mean for DJ Khaled & Kayslay’s upcoming releases?
Trey Songz finally gets his first Gold plaque with Ready.
Alicia KeysThe Element Of Freedom will be Platinum next week (Probably right now)
Maxwell‘s BLACKsummer’snight will too
