View Full Version : Jay-Z Set To Sell 800k In First Week

11-25-2006, 04:37 PM

After a whirl-wind of promotion for the album, Jay-Z's comeback LP Kingdome Come is set to break first-week sales records for 2006 and will land at #1 on the charts come next week.

Riding the wave of a strong performance at the recent American Music Awards and an unprecedented "Hangar Tour," which included seven shows in less than 24 hours in Atlanta, Philadelphia, DC, New Jersey, Chicago, L.A. and Las Vegas, Jay-Z will finally be seeing the fruits of his labors once next week's charts are released.

Apparently the "Mike Jordan of recording" can still ball, with sales of his latest disc projected to reach 850,000 units by next week, according to HitsDailyDouble.com. Jigga's totals would clearly beat out the old record for the year held by the Rascal Flatts, who debuted with 714,000 records sold in their first week on shelves this past April.

In related news, Jay has also recently become the #1 on-demand artist ever on Clear Channel Radio, with 600,000 plays over the past week on more than 220 station websites. As previously reported by SOHH, the Brooklyn-bred MC partnered with Clear Channel stations Power 105 and Z100 in New York last week to give fans an exclusive opportunity to listen to the album in its entirety before its release date.

Kingdom Come is in stores now on Def Jam Records.

how someone can sell 800k for a crap album, and how someone can sell just under 400k for a great album still amazes me.
