Tyga "Hotel California" First Week Sales Projections

Tyga's "Hotel California" expected to do far less than the rapper's last album in first week sales.

It appears that Compton rapper Tyga will be unable to surpass first week sales for his sophomore album, Careless World: Rise Of The Last King, with his latest effort. HotNewHipHop.com reports that Tyga’s newest studio album Hotel California will move between 45,000 and 50,000 copies in its first week.

That number is a great deal less than the 61,000 copies Carless World: Rise Of The Last King sold in its first week when it was released well over a year ago. Tyga's sophomore effort also came in at #4 on the Billboard 200.

Released on Tuesday, April 9 via Young Money Entertainment, Hotel California features appearances from a number of noteworthy artists including 2 Chainz, Future, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne.

Earlier in the week, Tyga quickly made headlines after coming to the defense of Maybach Music Group founder Rick Ross during a radio interview when he referred to the rapper’s controversial “U.O.E.N.O.” lyric as “freedom of speech.”

    this shit isn't even worth a download. i'll pass

  • YEBO

    I DON'T GET WHY SUCH A GOOD MC AND LYRICIST AS TYGA HAS TO HAVE TUPAC FEATURE ON HIS ALBUM. HIS BARS RUINED THE WHOLE ALBUM. HE IS OVERRATED WESTCOAST RAPPER WHO GOT HALF OF THE WESTSIDE ON HIS DICK. EVERYBODY SEEMS TO "RESPECT" HIM BUT WHEN YOU ASK HIS FANS WHAT ARE THEIR FAVOURITE SONGS, THEY CAN'T REALLY ANSWER BECAUSE ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS THE THEORIES WHY HE IS STILL ALIVE. RIGHT NOW, TUPAC HAS NO CREDIBILITY AMONG PEOPLE WITH REAL MUSIC TASTE, ONLY KIDS LISTEN TO HIM, THEY AIN'T EVEN BEEN HERE WHEN HE DIED.

    • YEBO

      IGNORE THE FAKE; HE'S LYING. TYGA IS WACK AND TUPAC IS ONE OF THE GREATEST RAPPERS OF ALL TIME. HIS MUSIC IS TIMELESS AND STILL LIVES ON. EVERYONE IN THE RAP GAME RESPECTS HIM. EVERY RAPPER THAT CAME UP AFTER TUPAC LOOKS UP TO HIM.

    The only one at YM who can do big numbers now is Drake, unless Wayne drops another Carter album.

    • PF215

      its 2013 now, lil wayne fell the fuck off years ago and his core base from 06-08 stopped tuning in after c4, it'll drop in 2015 and do 150k if that, but your prolly right about drake

      If you believe that, you need psychiatric help, ASAP. It'll sell 50k the first week and will not go gold/platinum.

    And ya'll thought Game flopped, Tyga had hot singles and a good buzz, all Game had was a mediocre single that peeked at 81 on BB100 and hardly any buzz. #GameTime

    • Anonymous

      Nah. If Game was at YMCMB, he'll never release an album. He'll be another tax write-off like the other 90 artists signed to the label that aren't Wayne, Drake, and Nicki.

      GAME WISH HE WAS ON YMCMB WITH THE BOSS BIRD MAN AND WEEZY!!! THEN HE WOULD BE GO PLATINUM BY NOW !!!!!!

    LMAO!! I told you Tyga was gonna do 45-50k 1st week. This nigga Tyga is a loser. This shit won't see any RIAA certifications of any kind. It's been a bad start of the year for YM; Wayne had seizures and his album flopped, Nicki's new single flopped and she's about to get fired from AI, Tyga took more Ls than Bow Wow. The only one at YM who's doing well is Drake; that nigga needs to jump ship cause it's sinking.

    • Chris Etrata

      Im not dickriding Wayne or Minaj but to be fair, High School has just been released. Give it some time before we can call it a flop. Tyga's definitely a flop however. Drake is the only YMCMB artist I can stand and he needs to sign himself over to his OVO label at Warner bros and leave YMCMB!!

    Tyga just dropping albums so he can have songs to tour off of in europe. Trust me, he's all good.

    • Anonymous

      And who exactly is going to pay for him to go to Europe? Unless the headliner is Wayne, Tyga will be lucky to tour the mall.

  • staysnatchingmyweave

    Hipsters, bought tylers album unlike you fuckers who bootleg shit anad torrent it thats how tyler sold more.

  • He straight bitch

    A rich boy from the valley family had 2 range rovers n he talk this gangster shit sad little fucker rite here watch that reality show he was on swear to god how could neone buy this faggots music

  • V-Nasty is God

    Hahahaha Tyler's Wolf album sold 90k first week (shit slaps too), hardly NO promotion, little label influence, few guest appearances other than his OF bros, produced the entire shit himself, wrote the entire shit himself, announced the album two months before it came out, first single came out a month before the album dropped and the other single came out the same day as the leak. Oh did I mention, THE SHIT LEAKED LIKE A WEEK BEFORE lmao. Still got positive reviews. Yet this lame meerkat looking ass nigga is one one of the biggest labels out now, shit is all on the radio and sites like worldstar, all kinda big names on the album and it's still hardly pushing 50k and is getting mixed reviews. The entire YMCMB camp needs to link up with MMG and off themselves Jim Jones koolaid style, make room for real hip-hop niggas.

  • Chris Etrata

    This shit flopping harder than Careless World. He won't even do 200k total. By the way, Reebok dropped Ross and he aint even know it.

  • Isdatu?

    I'm almost certain that @Fresh2Def is actually Tyga.

  • YESSIR

    THESE YESSIRS ARE ALL FAKES!!! WITH THAT SAID, YOU MAY NOT BE READING THE ARTICLE CORRECTLY!! THEY SAID HOTEL CALIFORNIA WILL SELL 45-50K SHORT OF 1 MILLION!!!

      gold in 1 month or less? you know sales just get lower and lower every week so if he sells 60k first week it would still take him a year to go gold minimum

    "WHY IS CURTIS JACKSON SCARED OF RELEASING HIS ALBUM?" It's not his decision when to release it. Interscope is jamming him up because they know it's his last contractual album with them, plus they know it's going to lose them money. BISD went gold, but probably cost more to make. I bet they broke even at best.

  • Edmonton Sun

    lol, quite the comic strip, anything and everything young money is straight trash, garbage bag that and send it to the burn pit.. actually kind of funny how brainwashed society really is.. but by the looks of those numbers maybe some people are starting to come around and listen to REAL music, lol.. DEMIGODZ new album, KILLmatic, is a must hear to anyone who listen's to real hip hop!!! on the other hand, if you're a young money fan, lol, enjoi your thoughtless garbage, to each their own..

      "EXCEPT FOR JAY-Z, RICKY ROZAY,KANYE, BEYONCE ETC, THEY NEVER GONNA SELL ANYTHING LESS THAN A MILLION COPIES)" You need to take Ross name off that list. he has never in his life sold 1 million copies of any album in the US
