Quantcast
Cash Money/Universal Motown’s Lil Wayne long-awaited rock album, Rebirth, hit yesterday, and looks on track for between 140-150k in first-week sales as he prepares to be imprisoned for a year on gun possession charges.
LADY A GETS ANOTHER WEEK
Cash Money/Universal Motown’s Lil Wayne Rock Album Is Top Debut
In a week that should be full of sales spikes from the most-watched Grammy show in six years, Capitol Nashville’s Lady Antebellum should return to the top of the HITS album chart next week after scoring 485k in sales in a chart-topping debut.

That’s based on one-day sales reports from those retailers who have not resorted to selling discs from the trunk of their car.

Cash Money/Universal Motown’s Lil Wayne long-awaited rock album, Rebirth, hit yesterday, and looks on track for between 140-150k in first-week sales as he prepares to be imprisoned for a year on gun possession charges. Needless to say, his last album, 2008’s Tha Carter III debuted with one million sales in its first week. He appears on the cover of the current issue of Rolling Stone.

Hollywood’s Nick Jonas & the Administration will debut between 80-85k for their debut, Who I Am, with a deluxe edition featuring videos on sale exclusively at Target and iTunes.

Rob Zombie’s Hellbilly Deluxe II, the sequel to his 1998 album, and first for Loud & Proud/Roadrunner, should sell in the 35-40k range. The album’s subtitle is Noble Jackals, Penny Dreadfuls and the Systematic Dehumanization of Cool.

The market was up 11% vs. last week, flat against the same week last year and now down 5% year to date.

You may now start preparing a cake with a file inside to send to Weezy.
