  • Dashing

    I wouldnt have guessed that The Weeknd would outsell 2 Chainz first week, but 2 Chainz is gonna kill it on the singles anyway.

  • JustMyOpinion

    I guess 2 Chainz doing a few extra shows brought him 20k more than I predicted (40k).

  • Word

    Damn, from 100k a year ago to 60k this year? What a drop 2 chain. Congrats to Weeknd though. And Janelle Monae had solid numbers too even with no single that I ever heard on the radio.

  • Nasty Nas

    Sold better than I thought too. Good shit.

  • Set303

    Janelle Monae’s album makes the Weeknd’s album sound like scrub material.

    Not a big MMG fan here but to the dude who says 25k first week you forget wale is on that shit? wale steady puts out 140k+ releases. No way this cd goes under 100k and thats off the wale love and maybe 50k from Ross fans.

    Fuck man, you just stupid. Not even a Kanye West feature would make that sell over 100k, let alone Wall-E. 30k-40k tops.
