“Watch The Throne” First Week Sales Projections

Posted By on August 9, 2011

     Jay-Z and Kanye West's new "Watch The Throne" album recently had it's first-week sales projections revealed. According to multiple reports, the new album should sell up to 450,000 copies during its first week.

Jay-Z and Kanye West's Roc-a-Fella/Def Jam/Roc Nation release Watch the Throne hit iTunes last night for a four-day exclusive, and predictably, the deluxe edition of the album and the regular are running 1-2 on the site. The physical version hits retail on Friday, with Best Buy the exclusive physical outlet for the deluxe edition, which includes four extra bonus tracks. In addition, it was the first major hip-hop release in memory to hit the market without a leak, perhaps due to its digital-only release up front. Early returns suggest that the album's first-week total on next Tuesday's chart will be right in line with the initial estimate of 400-450k. (HITS Daily Double)
