Watch The Throne 1st Week Sales Jump

Posted By on August 11, 2011

     Jay-Z and Kanye West's new "Watch The Throne" album recently had the projected sales numbers for its first week in stores increase to over 500,000 copies.

The Roc-a-Fella/Roc Nation hip-hop icons' Watch the Throne album is set for a #1 debut with anywhere from 500-550k, the second-largest first-week sales of the year next to Lady Gaga. Veteran Roadrunner Orlando heavy metal rockers Trivium's fifth studio album, In Waves, its first since 2008's Shogun, will debut with 20-25k, the same total expected for Def Jam/IDJ rapper Ace Hood, inked to DJ Khaled's We the Best Music Group label, on his third studio album, Blood, Sweat & Tears. Asylum/WB's Atlanta-based Gucci Mane & Waka Flocka Flame are next up with an estimated total of 15-18k for their Southern-drenched collab, Ferrari Boyz. (HITS Daily Double)
