The Numbers Game: 50 Cent

50 Cent

It real fitting that we talk about 50 Cent‘s album Animal Ambition. Not just because we talk about album sales every week anyway, but because 50 is one of the artists who popularized fans talking about album sales. Animal Ambition also shows how much times have changed. Back in his heyday, Curtis would have slit his wrist if his first week sales equaled 47,000. But now that gets you the #4 spot on the Billboard charts (For comparison purposes, Mariah Carey new album sold 58,000 last week). Check out our album review of 50 Cent’s Animal Ambition here.
