Excellent! All the hard work and secrecy paid off.
Kanye West and Jay-Z finally unveiled their joint venture Watch The Throne last week and so far, it's done pretty well. In it's first-week sales, it sold 290,000 digital copies on iTunes, beating Coldplay's previous record of 282,000 in 2008 with Viva La Vida Or Death and All His Friends.
But that's nothing really. When the disc dropped on August 8th, it launched to the #1 spot on iTunes in 23 countries. Finally, this morning, Throne's opening sales landed it on the coveted #1 spoint on the Billboard 200 albums chart, selling 436,078 units total.
Impressive, but not totally unexpected!
Great job guys! Keep the momentum up!
