Well, it didn't hurt that he was the closing act at Sunday night's VMAs.

Just hours after performing live on the MTV awards show, Lil Wayne released his new album Tha Carther IV. By the first day, sales predictions for the first week were between 700,000 and 850,000 units, which is REALLY IMPRESSIVE.

After a full 24 hours, however, new figures showed that sales went up and was projected to sell 850,000-900,000 units by the end of the week.

It will obviously make it to the number one spot on the Billboard charts, which will mark Lil Wayne's third number one album.

And if it surpasses the 850,000 mark, he will break his own record, with most record sales for a hip-hop album by a male artist since his album Carter III.

Way to go, Wayne!

    Looks like Wayne sold more albums on the Carter IV than Jay and Kanye's new album. Before people start talking I'm not taking sides.

    To those that don't know Wayne's album was leaked way before Monday so figures could've been way higher.

    Not even a fan of him or his music but at least he didn't use a 99 cent deal to sell his album. He sold way more than gaga did if you take away the albums that were sold for 99 cents and am a little surprise he sold more than Jay-z and Kanye since their album was pretty hyped up.
