Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 12/2/2012

Alicia Keys takes a #1 spot on her new label, and some interesting numbers. Ghostface Killah & Sheek Louch wave the Wu-Block flag into the Top 100, as Krizz Kaliko lights up the charts for a second time.

In addition to a new #1 on the R&B/Pop side of things, two veteran releases hit the Top 200, as well as another re-packaging of an earlier 2012 album, for the second straight week.

Alicia Keys' fifth album, Girl On Fire, sold over 150,000 units in its first week. This is Keys' first release since J Records, where she was the flagship artist, merged into RCA. In addition to a Nicki Minaj featured appearance, Keys collaborated with husband Swizz Beatz and Dr. Dre on this effort.

The long-discussed Wu-Tang Clan & D-Block collaboration, by way of Ghostface Killah and Sheek Louch sold nearly 9,000 first-week copies. The eOne release featured the three active members of D-Block/The LOX, as well as seven original Wu members. Krizz Kaliko's second release of 2012 and first EP slipped into the Top 200. Neh'Mind is the latest in a series of digital EPs from Strange Music's roster.

Finally, following Nicki Minaj's recent re-packaging of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (as The Re-Up), Epic Records' Future re-released Pluto (as Pluto 3D). This pulled the album containing "Same Damn Time" from the bottom of the charts last week at #191 to #63, and increasing weekly sales by over 6,000 units.

Alicia Keys Still Is A Girl Who Can Set The Charts On Fire

Alicia Keys' Girl On Fire took the #1 amidst a crowd of musical ladies including Taylor Swift, Rihanna and P!nk. The New Yorker's latest album features the self-titled hit single as well as the recently-released "Brand New Me." Now with RCA Records, this is Alicia's lowest-selling first week of her career. 2009's The Element Of Freedom sold over 275,000 more copies in its first days at retail. A platinum mainstay, the new label regime behind the the talented vocalist/piano player will be challenged to follow suit in the coming months. 

Wu-Block Comes Out

The long-discussed merging behind two New York high-profile Hip Hop groups came to fruition this fall. The Wu-Block project was took official shape when led by Ghostface Killah and Sheek Louch, who have toured together multiple times. The Staten Island and Yonkers delegates brought in members of their crews on various songs from the project. Notably absent from the Wu was RZA, both as a vocalist and producer, as well as U-God, while Erykah Badu appeared on the Termanology-produced "Drivin' Around." Other producers of note included Erick Sermon and Red Spyda

    they didnt press that many wu block albums. probably 50gs worth. spread out in a certain demographic. i see freeway didnt make the top 200 bogus

  • Dont4getTheGasCanJealousStupidMF

    curtis would probably buy 80% of his album...(i would hv said a few yrs back that interscope would buy the 80% for him to make his numbers look good, but after disrespecting Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine i doubt if this happens.so Curtis would hv to buy his albums himself-LETS FACE IT,THE MONKEY GOTS MONEY...LOADS AND TRIPPLE LOADS OF IT.HE DONT NEED YALL BROKE ASS INTERNET THUGS TO BUY HIS ALBUM bcos) another BISD numbers would put a nail to his musical coffin.I recon this is how its gona be.Curtis would do 300k 1st week(BOTH PHYSICAL AND DIGITAL COPIES-remember for his BISD they counted both to get his actual over 140k first week sales.)Curtis Jackson would buy 240k himself.Leaving about 15k digital copies @ $0.99cents on amazon to promote the album then another 20k for $9.99 on itunes for GUNIT stans to buy the rest 25k physical copies ....GTFOH!!!! OLD MAN. AINT NOBODY CHECKING OUT FOR CURTIS IN 2013.

    159,000 is terrible for Alicia Keys. Her last 3 albums before her recent one sold over 400k the first week easy. Now it seems she wil be lucky to go even gold. I shouldn't be too shocked because the album was kinda bland. Swizz beatz ruined this broads career. From the whole making her a homewrecker(which turned off alot of her core audience)to being very involved in her last two projects(Element of Freedom wasn't even nominated for a single grammy at the last grammy awards ceremony). Now this... Sales are fucked up as it is, as we all can see with these current sales. But Adele just went diamond a few weeks ago so... What does this tell us?

    "THEY HAVEN'T SOLD 500K YET. GOLD, PLATINUM, DIAMOND, ETC. CERTIFICATIONS ARE NOT DETERMINED BY SHIPPED. IT'S DETERMINE BY SOLD. THAT'S RETARDED" I agree, but that's how it works, and at the end of the day when an album is close enough it's not a conspiracy to call it gold or platinum.

      Why would a company who's crunching numbers over ship? This happened before in the industry, they don't do that anymore. They learned their lesson "shipping platinum" and THEN....................having to deal with BUYBACKS........ It would really be cool if people ASKED....we would get a lot of great input then because people enjoy teaching those WANT TO LEARN, instead of dealing with those who act like they know it all.

      Coca-Cola counts the orders made to the distributor as sales, even though stores scan them as individual units. A palette or boxes of CD's being shipped to Amazon or Best Buy count as sales, even though the stores have to fill pre-orders and store traffic. Not rocket science, you people may not have a real grasp as to how the distribution business works.

    "This isn't happening with Nicki. The original version was never strong enough to be a seller and the re-release isn't resonating with her fans" Pink Friday is ranked #7 in sales on Amazon, The Re Up album #8. The Massacre Deluxe is somewhere in the 60,000's lol They can't give that shit away. So alas 50 lover, NM is selling. Maybe not eye popping numbers, but one can only guess how many people downloaded both those albums which naturally effected her sales.

    • Anonymous

      Quote-Man's retort example is even worse, using an album that was released almost ten years ago and it's numbers today against an album released this year and it's current position with a re-release. Did you notice her current standing is still below "The Massacre" and it's re-release charting then? To add insult to injury, "The Massacre" was originally released EARLY to prevent illegal downloading and it STILL went platinum. Allow me to give you a spin and say Nicki's nearly million unit drop-off is due to illegal downloading. You're desperate to be right.

    Alicia is yet to release a wack record, and Girl on Fire lives up to the high standards set by its predecessors. Sales are not an indication of quality, and she's still one of the world's most successful musicians. Her 2013 tour has already sold and that's where you earn dough in the music business now-a-days. Can't wait to see her again next year, and can't stop bumping this superb LP.

      Quote-Man is a 50 hater. He forgot to include that not only was 50 platinum already before the re-release, but "The Massacre" re-release re-entered the charts at #2. Moved over 5m domestic units and over 7m worldwide. "Outta Control Remix" and "Window Shopper" re-ignited the album. This isn't happening with Nicki. The original version was never strong enough to be a seller and the re-release isn't resonating with her fans. Using 50 as an example was a terrible move.

I listen to everything from the old school legends like Rakim, Pac, Big L, etc. to today's elite rappers like Jay, Kanye, and Eminem to even the youngins like Kendrick, Cole, KRIT, etc. so your point is useless. 2. I don't listen to Chief Keef and 50 Cent, and Rick Ross is also a non lyrical garbage rapper. You're obviously a troll, so you can go fuck yourself.

    everybody is talking doen on meek mills sales i dont really see why his album is on pace to out sale nas album and his album sales were affected by the storm that hit ny so to me the album sales are pretty good he will hit around 350k before said and done and if he puts out a hit single he may hit gold if you are gonna point out a flop look at futures sales with all his hype and radio play and a re relase if his album that is a major flop the only rappers moving any units is rick ross who just passed 500k with only one single and kendrick lamar who is well on his way to gold

      I think Meek dropped his album a little late. He had some amazing songs earlier in the year. Also, I don't think he can do anything to increase sales now and it will be very hard for him to get to Gold status

    Meek Millz flopped sorry, he really did. All that buzz, he was suppose to outsell Kendrick easily. he was all over the radio, put out a mix tape this summer n shit. He fucked up by releasing that song wit kirko bangs, and even more by releasing Dreamchasers 2 with cuts that woulda made the album. He fucked up like ross fucked up by releasing rich forever before GFID. Niggas putting all they good shit on the mixtapes n can't come correct with an album. R.I.P. MMG They aint jeezy! IT'S THE WORLD!
