Birdman Hopeful Of 1 Million Sales In 1st week For ‘Tha Carter IV’

So the CEO of Cash Money Records and Lil Wayne’s father Birdman thinks that Tha Carter IV could top a million copies in the first week. According to him, the leak occurred because the album had to be delivered to Universal 10 days in advance of release so that 2 million units could be shipped to stores. Below is the quote from his interview with Rollingstone:


Cash Money delivered Carter IV to Universal about 10 days in advance, which Williams says was necessary to press the two million units being shipped in its first week. “The goal is to sell a million-plus copies,” he explains. Although that’s likely what led to Carter IV breaking free, Williams says he’s actually OK with leaks, to a point. “I can deal with it for short period of time,” he says. It’s when you have a leak out for a long time that it’s crazy.”

What are your predictions for the 1st week? Can they really achieve a milli?

  • GSLtown

    Probably not more than 150k i think. At the time of the carter 3 release, weezy had a much bigger hype, so I think he’ll never sell more units than c3 did.

    the carter 3 wasnt that great neither.. but that sold 1 million copies… who knows what will happen… lil wayne has so many loyal fans that it is possible.. no1 buys cds any more.. but wen the carter 3 came out i went and bot it just to support wayne… and i did the same for the carter 4… only two cds ive bought since high school… it realy isnt very likely for it to sell a million… but i think there is a chance… i hope it does just to shut up all of the people doughting him
