Frank Ocean "Channel Orange" First Week Sales Projection

Frank Ocean is slated for a big first week due to digital sales of his album on iTunes.

The first week sales projection has been revealed for Frank Ocean's major label debut Channel Orange.

According to HDD, the Odd Future crooner is projected to sell between 110,000 and 125,000 copies in its first week, based on digital downloads alone. Ocean unexpectedly released the LP to iTunes exclusively late Monday night, with plans to ship to physical retail on July 17th.

Ahead of the album's release, Ocean released a letter during the early hours of the morning on July 4th revealing that he has been in a relationship with a man. The Hip Hop community has showed its support since, with artists including Trina, Busta Rhymes and Beyonce praising the singer for his courage.

    Most of the time when a guy is always saying fuck a fag or all fags die. Most of the time they closet homesexuals and trying to conveince their selfs that there straight. I had a homeboy that use to talk that shit and now he is super gay. Plus all day everyday I read comments on this site that is talking about homosexual acts and everyone laughs to me that is saying you are gay. If you dont like gay people but you crack jokes about homosexual acts then you are gay point blank period. If not gay you are bi sexual.

    It doesn't matter whether or not Frank Ocean used his sexuality to promote his album. The fact of the matter is that Channel Orange is album of the year material. At the end of the day, it all goes back to the music.

    MAYBE RICK ROSS CAN COME OUT OF THE CLOSET BEFORE GFID DROPS SO HE CAN FINALLY SELL A MILLI. 5 LETTERS

      Def Jam didnt promote this album for shit. I guess Frank had to do it himself.

      yeah every artist nowadays either comes out the closet or admits having been an alcoholic/drug addict just before releasing an album to keep the hype up.

FUCK philly, fuckin clown ass bitch. i never said is support frank ocean either, i could give two fucks about him and his insecure ass. none of us were even thinkin about his sexuality until he put out his letter, he's just another insecure fuck. and look at u, talkin shit, sayin u gon beat my ass and u aint even met me, dumb fuck. grow up. ur just as insecure as frank ocean and the other asshole that commented on here. if u wanna talk about society, im down, but if ur here to just spew our random bullshit, callin me a dick suckin nigga and shit, without stating any actual real information, real shit, then get the fuck out, i aint got no time for bitch ass cum slurpin low grid hoes like ur gay ass. pussy whipped bitch

    • world wide djs

    • da hood speaks u fake ass nigga

      fuck outta here u clown, "our hood"..haha is u retarded or sum shit, sexuality has nothing to do with fuckin christian ideologies. today, institutional religions are just tools of hierarchical domination and systemic imprisonment. you dont know shit, dumbass fake broke gay bitch ass nigga !! I mean look, the spread of HIV is going to happen regardless of gays. And no motherfucker is gon listen to frank ocean and then turn gay u dumbass. The demonization of homosexuality comes from the establishment of monotheistic religion which u probably didnt even kno so shut the fuck up, talkin shit without having any shit to back it up, u retard. IF ANY OF THESE DUMB ASS FUCKS KNEW THE BIGGER PICTURE THAN THE WORLD WOULD BE BETTER OFF. u aint shit, just another ignorant ass dude tryna to spread sum bullshit to support sum cause against sum random ass group (gays). who gives a fuck about gays, there just another group within the societal game of roles we play. wake the fuck up faggot

  • LoRenZ

    That is good for just digital copies though...A lot of people don't use Itunes. 'Channel Orange' was my first Itunes purchase. Dope album.

  • YESSIR

    HE AINT DOING DRAKE NUMBERS THATS ALL I KNOW. HE DOIN THEM CB NUMBERS REMEMBER WHEN HE RAN FROM THAT FADE WITH CHRIS BROWN?

    • chris

      it's funny when this is just digital sales, next week he'll figuratively rape drake's cute numbers. please, don't put someone with such talent in the same sentence with someone mediocre at best. YMCMB is destroying rap. See the hot mess of nicki? she used to be good, now it's all about the money. And lil wayne so doesn't give a fuck anymore.

    • Hip Hop Fan

      Who cares if he didn't fight someone. Maybe he didn't want to get into trouble. That fight Drake and Chris got into is turning into a legal battle and ppl are getting sued now. LOL

      Good joke.

  • Marx1684

    I wish he wouldn't have used the whole sexuality thing for publicity. On another note - The project is official. He makes the type of songs I think Prince would have made if he was born in these times. PYRAMIDS BUMPS OH SO LOVELY IN THE WHIP.

    • SNATCH JUICE

      look at all these bitch ass comments, people trippin over the fact that frank ocean is gay, and people trippin over the fact that some people aint down with him being gay..hahaha, who gives a fuck?? whether u down or not, go smoke some hash, go fuck yo girl, go play sum xbox, go fuckin to the store or sum shit, do something. i dnt get y u be trippin over sum random mufucker who dont even kno u exist!!!!

    You can call the whole gay thing a stunt, but at the end of the day Frank Ocean deserves every penny he gets. Gay or straight, the guy is talented, period.

    "I believe in human rights for everyone, and none of us is qualified to judge each other and that none of us should therefore have that"

    • ???

      if none of us is qualified then everyone is qualified. I can judge whatever the fuck i want, so who are u to tell me otherwise. Oh but wait, is it God's job to judge us? what God do u believe in, huh? the one you were taught? key word here is "taught". Religion is a joke today, because of a variety of factors so dont go around saying idealistic bullshit like that. it really shows ur immaturity and ignorance. AND you put malcolm X as ur motherufuckin name too, do you even know what that motherfucker stood for, he didnt give a fuck about this shit u dumb ass. SO FUCK FRANK OCEAN, FUCK RAP, FUCK HHDX, FUCK YOU, FUCK EVERYONE now go smoke some hash

    • WeKnowTheTruth

      Funny how you bitch made niggaz respond like lil girls on their periods to an artist who actually trying to make it. I dont give a flying fuck that hes gay or not.I got plenty of bitches that buy and bump his shit. In the end its not what all the niggaz want, Its what most the bitches want.Straight or gay. You sad motherfuckers hate anyone who is making it. You probably hate the sky cuz it blue. Let the nigga live,shit. At least he admitted that he is Bi.He didnt want to live a lie. I can respect him for that. But Him being Bi or Gay aint for me to judge. Thats Gods Job. If you punk asses would spend as much time appreciating the music instead of criticizing and hating their life choices, you niggaz would be millionaires. STFU and appreciate the nigga music damn.Oh wait I get it, He came out and you feel insecure about trying to come out yourself,lol.Im not gay but I do support and respect the niggaz music and his right to live his life. Damn Obama was right, Gays are the new blacks. SMH.
