According to Billboard, Jigga Man and Yeezy’s new album is on track to be the second highest-selling debut of the year – bested only by Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’. In other news, Jigga Man planks on millions.
“Predicting “Throne’s” first week is tricky because of its unique release rollout. Traditionally, albums drop to all retailers on Tuesdays. However, “Throne” secured a Monday street date, but only through iTunes. So, its first four days of release will consist mostly of sales via Apple (with physical street-date violation sales mixed in), while the remaining three days of its first week will be a blend of physical and digital. Best Buy has the exclusive deluxe physical CD edition of the set from Aug. 12-22, which sports the same four additional songs as on iTunes’ deluxe version. We’re predicting between 400,000-500,000.”
