Usher & Waka Flocka Flame First-Week Album Sales Projections

Usher is expected to top the charts next week.

The first-week sales projections for new releases from Usher and Waka Flocka Flame have been revealed.

    Remember rap critics. All Flaka needs is 1 single to go platinum and the album will be considered a success. It's not about numbers anymore, especially when these albums get thrown out there with no promotion.

  • I'm so happy

    I'm grateful to God that wack Flame is flaming out, maybe we can get all the radio stations and Mag pubs to stop riding him now... Let's find TALENT, not flashes in a pan.

    • Is It Really True That Niggas Grew Up On Manhattan?

      Don't you ever say "we" again. You don't speak for nobody bitch, not even for yourself, so shut the fuck up and recognize or get fucked and left behind.

    As someone that has heard Triple F in its entirety I have to say that album is fucking garbage. Straight up. Dude built himself on making bangers, street, anthems, gritty songs, and hype songs on Flockavelli then comes on here with pop songs and watered down tracks. It sounds like he listened to Strange Clouds, Careless World, and Roman Reloaded and tried to steal their blueprint. I don't know what the fuck he was thinking, but no one wants this album. Hip hop purist will never take him serious, he will never be a B.O.B, Flo Rida, or Pitbull. Entire album is an act of futility. There are maybe three songs reminiscent of what fans were actually looking for here. Lurking goes hard tho. Only good thing about the album really. [2]

    Usher should be pushin wayyyyyyy more than that man. And Flocka should too, his shit been going hard as hell lately. Not lyrical whatsoever obviously but the man has stepped up his game song making wise.

      I totally disagree. I have heard the entire album and it is weak as hell. It is a piss poor attempt to make a 'pop, radio friendly album'. This is NOT a good look. Very wack. I would actually advise anybody who liked his first album to NOT buy or even listen to this trash.

    Album sales are very low because music really really sucks. It's not just in rap but in all genres.

  • born

    banner said it best,mixtapes even though they can build an underground dudes career,have also killed the hiphop game,why buy the album when we made it free all the time,we over saturated the music,and gave it away from free,and than turn around and want cats to support,why? adele aint drop 5 mixtapes last month...

    Waka Floppa Lame! And like someone said below, Usher's sales have been dropping since Confessions.

      Usher is no longer and R&B artist. He sold out to the masses. It's all about dance music these days. He should have stuck to what made him famous. Never should have left Jermaine Dupri!

    • Chris Etrata

      Thank you for pointing out my comment. Usher went from selling over a million in its first week from Confessions, to barely doing over it total. Eventually, his albums may struggle to reach the success of his first album. His new business may come from signing artists to his label like that turned singer from a high voice, to a white Chris Brown soundalike, Justin Bieber.

  • mimi

    big krit doing better than flocka?? well alright

  • Chris Etrata

    Usher is just getting ushered out of the charts since 2004.

    How the fuck does Adele sell so much? I see nothing special about her....Besides the fact that she's over weight.

    • Anonymous

      You can listen to her album front to back and then front again. The album is incredible. She's a highly soulful artist. Amazing singer live as well. She actually sounds better during live performances.
