Quantcast
Driven by the huge Nelly/P.Diddy/Murphy Lee single, “Shake Ya Tailfeather,” the Bad Boys II soundtrack is on track to sell around 250k in its first week, according to early reports from national accounts.
ONE-DAY SALES:
BAD BOYS II SHOOTING FOR #1
Bad Boy/Universal Debut Already Making A Killing at the Cash Register
Sure, the movie’s got yer Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.

But the soundtrack’s got yer Nelly, P.Diddy, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, etc., etc. Indeed, the first album to be dropped under Diddy’s new Bad Boy/Universal deal (how appropriate) is blowing up like a stuntman in one of the movie’s many fireballs.

Driven by the huge Nelly/P.Diddy/Murphy Lee single, “Shake Ya Tailfeather,” the Bad Boys II soundtrack is on track to sell around 250k in its first week, according to early reports from national accounts—and that’s ahead of the movie, which opens this weekend.

That number, a certain #1 on next week’s chart, is being aided by a nifty $2.25 retail rebate program—which is not to say “kickback,” because then Will & Martin would be kicking our door down and sweating us all over the place.

But hold it right thurr—thurr’s more: St. Louis rapper Chingy will probably see his debut DTP/Capitol effort, Jackpot, move upwards of 150k for the week. That’ll be good for a #2 showing on the chart—a very strong debut for this new artist, driven by his smash single, which has about 90 million in audience at radio. Oh, and a nifty $2 retail rebate program.

Making it a threesome is veteran Country duo Brooks & Dunn, whose Red Dirt Road (Arista Nashville) appears to be headed for a 100k week, driven by heavy action at the racks.

Cowboys hate that word, “threesome.” Ain’t nothin’ moral or Christian about it. Couldn’t we have just said “three-way”?
