Lil’ Wayne Hits It Big on the Charts

Lil’ Wayne’s newest album topped the charts with over 400,000 sold in the first day alone.

Lil’ Wayne has an eye on the charts. The first day he put out his newest album, 423,000 copies were sold, putting him right up at the top in the No. 1 spot. The rapper is also on track to have the largest sales week of the year, reported the BBC.

The record for most sales is 463,000 copies held by Mariah Carey with the release of her E=MC2 album in April. Wayne’s release, Tha Carter 3, is his sixth album currently, and his newest single, “Lollipop,” has been at No. 1 for the past five weeks, according to the BBC.

This single also made it over to the U.K. where he is best known for his cameo with Destiny’s Child in “Soldier.” The figures for his album are based off of nine of America’s biggest music retailers which include Best Buy, Borders and iTunes.

Others that were able to make it to the album chart are Viva La Vida, by Coldplay, N.E.R.D.’s Seeing Sounds, and Flavors of Entanglement, Alanis Morissette’s newest album, reported the BBC.
