wale the gifted cover 500x500

The first week sales projections for Wale’s The Gifted are in and as expected, he will debut at number 1 on Billboard with approximately 140-160k units. Wale is lucky to have a clear week because if his album came out on June 18th, he would have been behind both Kanye and J. Cole. The Gifted‘s first week sales are identical to his last album Ambition which debuted at #2 with 164k in November 2011.

UPDATE: Interestingly, J. Cole’s Born Sinner is expected to sell more than Kanye West’s Yeezus in the second week. Part of the reason may be that after all the hype has died down, the former has a better reputation amongst fans.

Wale The Gifted – 140-150k
J. Cole Born Sinner — 90-95k
Kanye West Yeezus — 70-75k

    @slickrick you fool, 1st week numbers are the most insignificant. Its all about the trickle of numbers in the months ahead.

    Everyone sells reasonable in their 1st week. Its all about how long u keep the album going. Look at kendricks numbers he’s gonna go platinum.
