1. Jay-Z & Kanye West – Watch The Throne – 436,078 - As if there was any doubt which album would land at #1. The only question, sales wise, is if they’ll be platinum by the start of the NFL season.
4. Adele – 21 – 72,722 - I guess the real question is if Ye-Z can mimic the success of this young lady. Three times platinum by next week. Take that to the bank.
7. Beyonce – 4 – 26,792 - I saw some upset responses about Mrs. Carter being omitted from last week’s edition. So here you go. She’s still 350K away from platinum. Will she eventually get there? Probably. But just the thought about a Beyonce album not going platinum doesn’t even sound right.
21. Gucci Mane & Waka Flocka – Ferrari Boyz – 16,709 - Well, I’m going to be honest. I didn’t expect this to sell over 30K the first week for two main reasons. One, there was no real mainstream push behind this project. Two, the crowd they’re selling to probably was never going to buy this album to begin with. That’s no shade, but just look at the numbers. For all the people who love Gucci and Waka’s music, 80% probably burned this CD or took it off someone’s iPod.
