With reports suggesting that Weezy's "Carter IV" album would sell between 7 and 8 hundred thousand copies in it's first week in stores, after a full day of sales were recorded that number has now gone up to 850,000 units.
Yesterday (Aug. 29), initial first-week sales projections for Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter IV" were hovering in the 700,000-850,000 range, but now, after a full day's worth of sales under its belt, that number has grown. Industry sources now suggest the album may shift over 850,000-900,000 by week's end on Sept. 4.
The album, released yesterday at 12 AM, will undoubtedly hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 next week, marking Wayne's third chart-topper. (Billboard)
