Weezy Sells 1 Million Copies of Carter IV
Despite putting out a basically shit album, Lil Wayne has done it again. Tha Carter IV has sold an estimated 1,000,690 copies in its first week according to Hits Daily Double. He previously sold 1,005,545 with Tha Carter III back in 2008. This marks Wayne's 3rd #1 album in the US. What people see in him, I will honestly never know, but either way this is an impressive feat in 2011, so congratulations are still in order.
UPDATE: HDD overshot their prediction by a lil bit and Wayne actually only sold about 964,000 in its first week, according to Billboard. I am going to just go ahead and assume that he didn't hit the mark because of my personal opinion.
