This Will Buy Him Lots Of Lollipops!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLil Wayne

wenn1805962.jpg

Here's something unexpected!

Although most industry insiders believed Madonna or Mariah would be the top-selling album of the year, it turns out that might not be the case.

Someone's set to beat both divas for biggest sales of the year, and that's rapper and "pretty boy" Lil' Wayne.

What helped his album get so much hype before it was even released?

Turns out it was helped by all the internet leaks of his songs!!!

It's been the best free publicity, say industry experts.

Lil' Wayne's Tha Carter III came out this Tuesday morning, so exact figures have yet been determined, but execs at his music label estimate the album will sell between 850,000 and 950,000 by the end of its first week.

And if they're right, that'd be double the amount Mariah's album opened with.

Damnnnnnnn!

Pat Monaco, exec VP of sales for the Universal Motown Republic Group, says that, "The accounts were bullish by 10 in the morning. The sales the first few hours were exceeding the rate that the Kanye album sold a year ago. Wayne was one of these records that, because it was so highly anticipated, with the leaks and everything, it caused more people to go out at 8 in the morning to buy the CD."

And with the CD such a long time in the making, Monaco adds that finalizing the album was "like putting a traditional setup and street date on a guy that was just nontraditional. It changed dates, changed titles, changed songs, changed the people that were working on it. But sonically, the record bears out."

Let's see if the album really sells that well.

Suck on it!

    I thought all of the album leaks on limewire would habe HURT his sales? but if he does sell that much that would be pretty amazing beating out the queens of pop!

  26. jj says – reply to this


    26

    I can't believe we live in a country where a song like "Lollipop" is #1. I 'll admit that sometimes I find the hooks in silly songs catchy, but it's so unoriginal and embarrassing to me. Especially with all the young kids who sing along with it. No class.

  28. Erin says – reply to this


    28

    Funny Perez thinks he knows all but he doesn't even know the greatest rapper alive. Maybe that's why it was so anticipated? Or maybe because the "Carter 3" got leaked onto the internet last year, he made it into a mixtape and then came out with another Carter 3 within a year. If there's a remix Lil Wayne's on it. Do your research Perez. Suck on that.

  35. fumer says – reply to this


    35

    Um, who expected Madonna to have the top-selling album this year? 'Cause I don't recall that EVER being brought up…maybe in Perez's little kingdom of make believe. Madonna's selling exactly what we thought she would…BADLY.

  36. Erin says – reply to this


    36

    Re: mimi – And Mimi must be the ho buying Mariah, Madonna, and Kanye's music. Get off the mainstream train. Perez I have been giving you too much credit. You can get almost any album before it's released off the internet. You could download Maria's and Kanye's weeks before they were released. His album will do so well because it IS the most anticipated album of the year. Sorry Daryl and Mimi consider people who "cowrite" their music "talent". He doesn't even write his verses down he just memorizes them. He is so creative and clever. Do yourself a FAVOR buy this album so you can support artists with REAL talent.

    Nobody thought Madonna would have the year's top-selling album, at least not in the US; Mariah or Usher was more likely. Even I didn't, and I'm a Madonna fan. If you thought so, you were out of your mind!

    Ahh, sorry perez but most everyone including Usher thought Usher would have the biggest release not mariah or madonna. Usher himself even said Jive had had some good success with the likes of Chris Brown but it was time for them to bring out the Giant, meaning himself. Nothing gives me greater pleasure to have him been proved wrong. Really wrong.

    What the hell are we as a nation doing to our youth???? This guy openly admits to MURDERING FOUR PEOPLE! And we say, oh, yeah but he can wear his pants below is ass crack and do drugs and make an album so lets buy it and make this freak of a human rich and worshipped. And the youth of our nation think that he is to be looked up to. The children of our nation, think that because we allow this, we believe in him. He is to be admired??? Everyone knows those stupid tear drops mean he's commited murder, yet we'll see him on the red carpet. We have the most screwed up values, if you can call them that.

    Here are some foolish quotes from this foolish, mindless, lawbreaking, ass.

    Here are a few other quotes from the interview

    "I have four teardrops on my face and I have to look my mamma in her eye everyday. I can't lie to her..Fuck what they think…"

    "I'm not gonna rap about you, man I will murder you, your family, your child, a newborn…I don't give a fuck"

    Yeah, He just sounds wonderful doesnt he? OMG. we are in trouble people if this is acceptable to us.

    Let me make a prediction, this man will be in the papers for one or both of these sentences.

    He is either going to o.d. on drugs or be involved in some murder, either committing yet another one and actually getting busted for it, or he'll be the victim.

    Just watch. He's a winner, thats for sure.

  68. 68

    the album sold so well because he's been working on it for the past 5 years.. shit kept getting leaked onto mixtapes and shit so he was tryin to keep this album completely exclusive.. i've been waiting for the carter 3 to come out for a minute and i'm glad it finally did.. weezy is gonna go down as the best rapper alive and fuck the haters that say his shit is lame — best album ever

  73. Denis says – reply to this


    73

    Of course, he's going to sell a lot. He has Kanye and major producer's work on this record. His mixtapes were a lot better but this is his first major record and people have been waiting for his since LAST YEAR. But N.E.R.D's record is soooo much better.

  74. manda says – reply to this

    you guys are all crazy. all his work is savage. check him out other then the carter 3.. try carter 2. like father like son.. I really don't think carter 3 is his best work. but he has done some pretty wicked shit.

    I agree with Erin. Why would you not expect this album to sell?! Honestly, he had an album all ready to go and it got leaked so what did he do, made another one. How many artists do you know that can do that, seriously. If you say he isn't a good artist then i clearly don't know what to consider him. His beats are hot and his lyrics are unreal. I love his album. Weezy is the best rapper alive and there is no one better, i don't care what anyone says. He constantly has new shit out, everyone should be appreciative of him. If you don't like him or all you want to do is diss him then why did you open this post and take the time to comment and listen to his album? Beats me. If you don't like him, don't listen to him but sure as hell don't diss him because i'm sure you couldn't do what he does. Fuck Haters. Weezy is the best rapper alive.

    Erin, i agree with you. How did you not see this coming, why would people not expect his album to sell like crazy. Who else has one album ready and then it gets leaked so what does he do.. exactly what you expect him not to do.. just make another one. If that isn't a good artist i don't know what to categorize him as. The beats are hot and the lyrics are unreal. If you don't like him then i don't know why you even took your time to come into this post and talk shit about him or listen to his album. Like for real, if you don't like him then don't talk shit about him. I mean i know for a fact that no one on here can do what he does. He constantly has new shit for us to listen to. He is the best rapper alive and there is no one that can compare to him right now. If all you are going to do is hate on him then find something better to do with you life. Seriously, haters can get the fuck out. WEEZY IS THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE. Tell me who compares, oh wait, no one.

    Oh my god. I hate commenting when I feel negatively about an individual so I generally refrain from doing so…but this guy always makes me want to heave when I look at him. Remember those pics of him on TMZ where he was passed out? He looks like a cadaver! Literally a corpse that is starting to decompose. I'm sorry, but he GROSSES me out and gives me the heebie-geebies every time I look at him…and YET HE IS POPULAR!!! Please, stop supporting him, downloading his music, or paying any attention to him generally!!! …my stomach can't take it!

    Alright Alright Alright.
    1) I love how most of you are just ranking on Lil' Wayne so much, but you maybe have heard maybe the few songs on the radio? I'm pretty sure more the 75% of the people going on and on about his music is garbage can barely put together a rhyme scheme. I'm pretty sure you are the ones the go head over heels over Mariah's "music" alright the bitch can sing but van she write a decent song? I'm very doubtful if she can even write.

    2) I'm also pretty sure that most of you who are saying that Lil' Wayne is the ugly and what not are less than perfect. I for one would bang him into retardation :)

    DEAR Lil' Wayne,
    Wanna Make out?

    7.
    Do you still love nature….despite what it did to you?

    8.
    Your birth certificate is an apology from the condom factory!

    9.
    You’re so ugly, apes want to adopt you!

    10.
