Hip Hop Album Sales: Week Ending 05/04/2014

Iggy Azalea's "The New Classic," Pharrell's "G I R L" and Future's "Honest" remain in the Top 10 while Styles P's "The Phantom and The Ghost" and Bas' "Last Winter" enter the chart.

Iggy Azalea's The New Classic, Pharrell's G  I  R  L and Future's Honest remain at the top of the Rap & R&B portion of the Billboard Top 200 albums chart. Meanwhile, Styles P and Bas enter the charts with their individual efforts. Styles breaks into the chart at #74 with The Phantom and The Ghost selling 4,331 copies and Bas enters the chart at #103 with 3,601 albums sold in its first week with his Last Winter effort.  

Iggy Azalea's The New Classic Arrives At #5

Iggy Azalea's The New Classic is this week's top Rap album on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart. The collection lands in the #5 spot overall this week, a drop from last week's #3 placing. It experienced a 57 percent decrease in sales. The New Classic sold 22,525 copies in its second week, bringing its total sales number up to 74,917 units sold. The effort earned a 2.5 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review. "In a now altogether too common meeting of marketing prowess and the expectations of a society in the throes of progression, Australian-born emcee Iggy Azalea’s debut album The New Classicis just that; a modern twist on mainstream marketing’s ideal of beauty and expectations from popular music," HipHopDX said of the set. "Depending on perspective, Azalea unfortunately (or fortunately) follows in a long line of physically attractive blondes pushed to the stars by the music industry. In that being said instead of Azalea’s unique gifts as a lyricist being showcased, the album feels flat and uninspiring. This isn’t as much an enjoyable album as it is a brand marketing impact report highlighting percentages of target demographics reached." 

Recently, the rapper said she's already looking into her next effort. 


Pharrell's G  I  R  L Remains In Top 6 

Pharrell's G  I  R  L is the #6 album on the chart this week. In its ninth week of availability, the project sold 21,645 units, a 3 percent increase from last week's sales total. The effort has sold 347,128 copies overall. Recently, Pharrell revealed news regarding "Happy," this album's most successful cut. In a recent interview, Pharrell acknowledged that he was not the first act set to perform the selection. “[Cee Lo] did it," the Virginia producer-rapper said. “But...How do I say this diplomatically? The powers that be at the time did not see it fit for him. And there was a much bigger agenda for him. He had bigger fish to fry. He had an album to put out…He wanted to do it, but I think some folks on his team just felt that the priority should have been on his album at the time. And so they elected not to do that song, but with another one instead…He was one of the most gracious people about it. When it came out he congratulated me. When we got nominated he congratulated me. He’s a super standup guy…He sounded amazing on it. I mean, he burns my version.”

Future's Honest Drops To #7 

Future's Honest experienced a significant decrease in sales this week. In its second week, the effort dropped 63 percent in sales, knocking the project down from #2 to #7. This week, the effort sold 19,731 copies, which brings the Honest sales total to 73,083 units sold overall. In August 2013, Future spoke about the album after switching its title from Future Hendrix to Honest. “Honest is the new me," Future said at the time. "It represents the truth I try to bring to my music...I plan to break the mold with this album so that it will be nothing like you’ve heard from me or any other artist out. You can either tell the truth or face the Future.”

    "Mastermind sales are what Def Jam expected when they released it without a single in the Top 200, at 330,000 its the 9th best selling Rap CD for 2013-2014." 350K at $10 apiece is 3.5 million gross, plus singles sales so if the budget was 2 million then the label is happy. Promotion Production Features Mixing/Masterring Packaging Distribution (Hard Copy) Misc. iTunes gets their little cut but the label gets the lions share of the revenue. If you have a solid and structured team you can do a lot of the promo yourself especially if you have your own promotion staff, street teams E teams and video team.

    Rozay and Dream had a bonfied radio smash with "In Vein" but Dream ruined any chance of a visual to promote the song after he whooped that Vietnamese girls head. Future needs to drop a visual for Never satisfied with Drake if he wants to recoup his album budget or drop a single with 3-Staacks for Benz Friendz. YG need to do some remixes, some with Troy Ave, Fat Trel, LiL Reece, and Rich Homie Quan.

Kendrick and J Cole went that route and were rewarded handsomely, even Eminem got in on the action again. T.I. should be ashamed of himself, he let Julia Greenwald use him to promote this agenda through B.O.B's first album that laid the blueprint for this shit and now he has consigned this Iggy the albino.

    "MMG is the farthest thing from real and they are crossover artists. Jay Z doesn't crawl to anyone for relevance, other artists, MMG included, crawl to him for relevance." Ross, Meek & Wale are doing it for the culture and the community, it makes me beam with pride to see three dark-skinned artists in this era of mullato metrosexuality who can do over 350K+ without forcing a white singer/rapper on their album to pander to the consumers. Barbie Doll bitches with blonde hair, niggas riding skateboards, nerd-core, Hip-Pop, Hipster-Hop, Emo-rap, We in the Iggy era my family, a pale zombie bitch from overseas outselling a brother like Future, the shit is crumbling, poor 2-Chainz ran to Fergie, poor Yo Gotti ran to Kendall Morgan, they got the sell outs putting Mayonnaise on the meat instead of Bar B Que and Hot Sauce just because they want to appease the taste buds of these foreigners at the restaurant infiltrating with gentrification to the neighborhood

    "I dont understand how Future is underperforming with the strength of his singles. Rozay got that Thug Cry movie the jam of the week on MTV and just debuted it on 106 so Mastermind is still on the radar plus they filmed another movie for Shame on a Nigga that will drop at the end of the month." I fucks with visuals heavy, film is one of my hobbies it's a slept on side hustle, I'd advise upstarts to DL a pirate version of FCP and get a Cannon and get proficient. Every crew should have somebody skilled in photography and video, in this digital age it's crucial to have as much media content as possible. YG underperformed because the album is too inclusive and not diverse enough, plus it wasn't promoted Heavily enough, Ace Hood had a monster platinum single last year and only managed 50,000 total sales so your singles don't always translate to album sales success. Still a dope album worthy of purchase and With the right visuals it can sell well into the summer and bubble under the surface.

      1. Nope. The song wasn't a hit because of Iggy. It's a hit because of everything NOT Iggy. 2. No, they didn't bomb. Ariana didn't buy any of her albums.

      What star-power? That song being big had nothing to do with Problem being a hit. How come Iggy's other singles flopped hard?

      Iggy's not lifting anyone and she ain't a rising star.

      Doesn't matter what you think. The point is that these songs prove iggy is a rising star. She in the process lifted charlie xcl and that mariah carey ripoff ariana grande.

      It's not a joke. Iggy is a rising star right now with fancy being no.4 and problem being 3 (almost no.1).

      You're not involved with MMG and you don't know Mustard, you're a groupie sitting at home. MMG is falling, not rising and Aftermath is not falling at all. All of those songs Mustard and Nic Nac produced suck ass, no matter their chart positions.

      At MMG, we rising while aftermath keeps falling. My homie, DJ mustard is having plenty of top 20 hits and even influenced nic nac to produce loyal, a top ten hit.

      Their raps do suck. The technology is fake and the beats suck. Mustard will never be the next Dr. Dre with those trash, repetitive ratchet beats. People obviously like the song as it sounds different from the other shit that gets played on radio now. The fans keep buying it.

      MMG raps don't suck, you think you could do better. The technology is real and the beats are terrific. We got DJ mustard being the next dr dre. What is it about all of me that keeps people interested? Does Legend pay people to buy his shit?

      Not true. Rick Ross had nothing to do with John's success, dude can't even get a #1 for himself, how can he help someone else do that? Also, All Of Me is a good song, not awful.

      Consumers want everything free. They'll download four mixtapes but won't pay 9.99 - 12.99 for an album on bestbuy online

    • Wrong nigga

      Explain country music sales then, they stay getting plaques. Wanna know why? Because they don't stray from their genre, country music sounds like country music. Rap music tries to sound like everything but rap, at least the artists that get pushed down our throats never make straight up hip hop albums, people that would buy their music know they can't rap so they don't and they don't know about other rappers that are actually good. Then there's people that know about rappers that are actually good without the promo but those are people "in the know".

    HIPHOPDX, WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING?? I thought you were supposed to cover the TOP 200. Why is there no mention of the Army of the Pharaohs album? Why do you only show the numbers up until like the #36 position on the chart? Am I wrong, or did you use to show all of the hip hop acts on the Billboard 200?

    • Bizzalls

      Your fuckin name is "Drake Runs Rap." Regardless if you're joking or not, you're a complete faggot just for that. Oh, so underground rap isn't good? Just kill yaself man. The day your Father had you, you slid out his asshole so fast. And when you landed on your head that did some damage. That is why you have become the wack, useless human being you are. On a side note, have a great day!

      I agree if you have the charts put all r&b/hiphop on there..and sorry Chuck,Justin is r&b you cant say he isn't..id actually like to see more of whos in the top 200 and get an idea of what there final sales could be

    • ^

      You should also get a life, you mainstream crap virgin.

    • Chuck Nerin

      Mensa's right. J Timberlake was always shown and now he's not although he's still in the top 40. He's not hip hop and shouldn't have been there in the first place so not mentioning his success any more was the best move. Drake is still in the top 50 and I'm sure Childish Gambino, K-Dot, and Jay-Z are in the top 100. Young Money's album is probably also around 100 along with several others.

    • Michael Vic Mensa

      You're wrong. They only show notable chart toppers. Like if an album that came out 15 years ago suddenly jumps back in the 200 it's notable. First week and following sales of popular artists, major jumps in position, sales of someone recently in media.

      Its not really a surprise being that he released the cd in November so after the holidays it tailed off..I think if it was released in the summer say June/Juy it would ve sold a lot more like Recovery but still 2.1 million aint nothing to sneeze at..

      I know Freddie Gibbs is indie and is getting indie money. Plus I knew his album wasn't gonna blow the charts away pushing 300k-500k sold. But as known as Freddie is he still should have pushed way more units for as good as his music is(in my opinion) I know fans are so very broke these days (they can't spend 9-12 dollars on an album but buy $200 shoes) but being indie or major you still should have an ideal figure your album will sale. I think since guys are indie people will give them the pass. But as I said I prefer quality over quantity just wish some of the better artists will sale more than some of these preschool rappers

    • HAHA!!

      WAIT WAIT WAIT..This clown ass clueless moron said that Freddie Gibbs FLOPPED. Ha! What a dipshit. First of all, that album is the epitome of an underground/real hip hop album. It was produced entirely by MADLIB, dog. That's underground as you get. That shit sold 10k first week! That is in no way shape or form, even close to a flop for an independent album. Damn you're stupid. And that's just counting sales in the US. Underground hip hop has even more fans overseas! So I'm sure he sold at least another 5k worldwide! Read a fuckin book.

    • Still SMH

      Well, now i think about it. I'll be a motherfucker, so go ahead and call me another motherfucker. What's funny, you never addressed me calling you a stan. So i stand corrected. You are a simp ass dick goggling nigga. I get off at 4:30 so I can do this for three more hours dick goggler.

      At the motherfucker that called me a motherfucker, I for one ain't no stan. You don't see me commenting on this site each wednesday laughing like a school girl over albums sales. Now I do laught at some of the jokes on here. Plus I talk about the quality of an album, i could give a fuck how much it sale. Freddie Gibbs shit flopped but it's quality music. You don't see me laughing at it. From your response you must be a 50 stan since i said it was stupid to compare sales of different style albums, be if Ross 50 Freddie Style P.
