50 Cent "Animal Ambition" First Week Sales Projections

50 Cent's album is slated to sell less than 35,000 copies.

50 Cent's Animal Ambition sales projections are in.

The project is slated to sell between 30,000 and 35,000 units, according to HitsDailyDouble

Recently, 50 Cent spoke about his expectations regarding Animal Ambition's sales. 

"I can't do good," he said. "In my head, what good is because of the success I've had in the past, that's so much lower. I've done so much that having the music that makes people enjoy themselves, that actually means something at the moment is the goal. Like when you said, 'Do you care whether you sell the record or not?' I do care that it actually is within our culture. That it means something.

"I was doing so much," he added, regarding his past sales. "It's all more than I thought. I didn't know that. You had to die, you gotta have a double CD, you gotta be Tupac and get killed to do ten million records. All Eyez On Me, that was the only time I ever saw it before. When it goes past ten to thirteen I was like, 'What?'"

The album earned a 2 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review. Listeners can stream the album on HipHopDX by clicking here.

    50 Cent's Animal Ambition 2nd Week Global Album Sales 50 Cent's fifth studio album, Animal Ambition sold 25,000 copies globally in it's second week in stores. The album is now at two week total sales of 90,000 worldwide. These numbers shouldn't be confused with the album's national sales; it is at a total sales of 63,000 copies in America alone. I see the album selling at least a quarter of a million copies worldwide in total.

    first off no one is buying albums now a days, even if he sold 30-35K he seeing all that money in his own pocket no one getting nothing off of it. You same niggas who dissing the sales is the same niggas that be in the shower singing candy shop to y'all self. Plus nobody listen to real music no more its all about skinny jeans, weed, pills and "hey im gay" what about you. These new rap niggas most of em garbage.

    Actually Game just signed to E1 aka Koch so he's indie now too but at least 50 has his own indie label with major distribution. Game is destined to be a worked all his life. Game is signed with ymcmb. He just needed e1 for distribution since universal hates him.

  • CHOLO

    50 fucked up by releasing every song off the album before the album release date. Who the fuck is gonna pay $15 for a album if they already have most if not all the songs already.

      difference is he was on a major label with most of the industry's biggest names backing him. how you only move 50k on interscope, bad boy and mmg with a platinum single with drake and weezy? shit is sad. at least 50 was successful when he came out 10 years ago... french not so much.

    "You do understand your saying 23 million means nothing right" That's 11.5 after taxes, and yes. It means nothing when talking about how Animal Ambition flopped.

    "if they sold 100k independently it was a success..independent usually means the artist gets 85 % and the label 15% so anyone who sells 100k or better is successful" Being indie doesn't mean your going to make millions. If that was the case, every one of your favorite rappers would have made the jump long ago. There's still a structure in place where you have to have 1 or 2 hit singles, and constant exposure. If 50 would have put it maximum effort, and brought top shelf producers and collabo's to the table, then he could have done impressive numbers.

  • TruthHurts

    50 falls victim to what most once successful rap artist go through. Lack of substance. Rappers like him will catch a buzz and have a ton of success due to their hit singles, but after so long, people don't want to hear the same exact song / lyrics over and over and over again. Yeah, we get it, you're rich and a gangster. You can only say that so many times before it gets old. The shelf life on repetitive jingles is only so long.

    Everybody flopping, not just 50. All the new mainstream shit has been garbage, cuz these niggas are scared to try new shit with the music, fuck a look, fuck a brand, fuck a trend, fuck promotion and go back to trying to be nicest and most creative at whatever you do, if you make beats fuck making what they tell you is hot and make what you think is hot the same for rappers. Half of these pop rappers have been halfassin the music for years now they're starting to see the results of their lazyness, instead of trying to making music for niggas getting an allowance they need to make music for niggas with jobs, niggas with jobs aren't gonna waste their money on garbage, they work hard for their money and they been saving for a while on their music budget because the music is garbage, and blaming piracy is bad copout these days as hard as they enforce that shit harder now compared to 10 or 13 years ago. So I say go back to working hard in the booth not the boardroom.

    I hate Rick Ross, but I Animal Ambition fucking sucks. I liked only 2 songs: "Irregular Heartbeat" (Kidd Kidd is garbage tho), "Funeral" (bonus track on iTunes).

  • fam man

    So he doesn't sell big the first week.. Album is still hot.and this is only the beginning. Besides artist that sell big the first week with the exception of a few numbers drop like crazy week two anyway. Let's not forget the sales from singles hesbput out for the album too.

  • mrnoluv

    What a fall from grace!!!! Dayum! I remember a famous interview with 50 right before his second album came out with MTV, he stated "If an artist doesn't care about records sales he shouldn't put the shit out, just make it and listen to it in your house". This nigga is living off his past shit. Yes he is a great business man, but music wise? I see EM's last album in this era of Dead Hip Hop sold what 2.3 Mil? This nigga can't do $100k in his first week? Wow dawg, come now I know there is a lot of east coast dick riders who just love them some 50 but let's be real, let's be honest musically he's Puffy! If it wasn't for Dre, EM...let's just say he hooked up with another crew back in the day, 50 wouldn't have been what he WAS. I know dick riders will argue, go ahead but one thing you can't argue, this nigga needs to quit! For me when he lost to Kanye...I lost all respect for him. He isn't relevant musically, that's the truth. Stick to business 50, music wise you are finished. 30K, LOL, damn that nigga is done.

  • Anonymous

    It must be embarrassing for 50 to sell less than Rick Ross. This album sounds like its 10 years old though so i'm not surprised, as much as I loved the vibe of his older music its vital to make music thats with todays standards he can't depend on his 30 year old fans from the early 2000s to still buy this outdated work.

  • fuck french

    I like 50 he a real street nigga fuck ross n wayne fake bullshit but you cant argue massive flop n theres a lot of reasons n stans need to stop making excuses. Don't matter if its independent even if he was getting 10 bucks an album he aint making shit Releasing every track b4 it drops with a video was dumb you can watch the whole album on youtube No Eminem feature or dre production retarded Telling people how rich you are every time you talk aint gon make them wanna support you Prodigy verse was a disgrace he is fuckin trash these days No big single I dunno people are just sick of 50 the album wasn't bad but it was far from dope he started all this first week sales is all that matters bullshit now its come back to haunt him so I don't give fuck

      50 said he only cares about sales because the culture cares about it and he's the reason most of these websites and fans care so much about first week sales because he set the bar extremely high when he released GRODT. I mean 50 the only rapper I've heard of who released a single every week for every song off the album and you could basically had it for free with how the internet is and Fif sold 4 million singles off animal ambition and thats singles alone. 50 ain't worried about record sales as much as you guys care about it plus he's independent so the majority of the bread so he's making goes to him and maybe a piece of it to iTunes

    What i dont get is this With all the millions of G-Unit idiots online (Facebook, Twitter,HHDX....U name) Cursing the shit outta anyone who says they dont like Curtis music, They would vote a billion times to give Curtis singles and albums 5stars, They be online 23hrs a day defending Curtis and dissing Rick Ross. They swear Curtis would do 1 billion copies first week, and how his singles are DOPE and selling.....SMH Here is my issue-->> WHY DONT THEY BUY 50 CENT ALBUM? If half of these idiots on HHDX alone buy his album he did go Gold first week. Dont get this type of fans man.

    • Anonymous

      I think all of 50's fans spend a lot of time on hip-hop websites. There's not that many of them, but they can dominate a thread online. Unfortunately, eventually the album is available to purchase, and everyone can see how small their numbers really are.

    • chris

      @gunitfans....because they got it for free..lol...let me break it down again..im gonna be a gunit fan regardless of how many records they said..let me say this Jay-Z has corporate America and whites.. Drake has Women period as well as the average fan Kanye when he sales has White America Em/Macklemore has whites period Wayne has White people and skaters Kendrick was the newest thing out.. 50 doesn't have that fanbase anymore ..its reality..im just on here saying that people blog and talk flop and shit like that but to say corporate talk is bs tell me what world do you live in?..the world is corporate homie..his way of making records wont allow him to crossover to the pop world anymore..all the people are doing at the end of the day is going back and forth about a man that is richer than we may ever be and instead of going on facts niggas is going back to some shit he said when he was the number one artist in the game.

    • Nick T

      You're wasting your time trying to convince the G-Unit Stans here as apparently they live in a parallel universe where the sun rises and sets around 50. Things like the obvious truth and facts don't matter to them as 50 is the be-all, end-all of their existence. On the real 50 is relevant as a business person but as a rapper no one is really feeling him anymore for the most part except the Stanatics. Nonetheless I wish 50 the best of luck whenever his streetking album gets released and that Interscope doesn't keep pushing it back till christmas 2017.

    • chris

      Sorry I cant agree with you homie...White people/corporate America will buy them..do be honest Jay/Kanye don't sell to the hood like they once did..the reason people defend 50 is because as fans they don't feel like he gets the respect he deserves as an artist..he's already accomplished as much as a rapper could dream of and he doesn't get his respect..but like he said in the interview yesterday he's made the Forbes list 5 years in a row without even being relevant in the music world..

  • Not Impressed

    Wow, when Karma hits, it hits hard. To any 50 Cent fan who is trying to flip this into a good thing, he put out a video about 5 years ago dissing Fat Joe for selling 46K first week. Look up "Fat Joe Funeral". According to 50 Cent that signaled the end of Fat Joe's career sooo yeah. I'm not even confident he sold that many records, I'm sure he bought about half of those, his album has zero hits and zero buzz. I'm not impressed

    "Look at the singles he dropped the first 11 alone made him bank he sold thousands on each of them therefore he may have made close to 3 mill plus interscope paid him 23 mill after he left" None of those singles went to #1, or had staying power anywhere. He'd be lucky if he sold 5k in singles. As for that Interscope money, that has nothing to do with his label situation now. That was money that was simply owed to him after years of service. It's a wrap.

      This is Indy. All expenses are occured by 50 Cent. All Indy artist have a distribution deal.

    • TRNat

      this is album is not indy. Universal on distro. Huge amounts of $ on promo, production, features. This boy lost $ on this project. 50 on every tv and radio show doing promo and people just don't give a darn about him as an artist anymore.

    I expected less since he released the entire album on you tube its still better than mastermind

  • Anonymous

    HAHAHAHAHA It was predicted, now it's true. 50 Cent flopped. Rick Ross won.

  • HipHopTV

    Hits daily double is always on point. They go by first day soundscans. The % of sales is usually highest first day and their is a predictive formula for the remaining 6 days that is accurate. Also let's count the # of albums 50 bought himself with all that money his has. His sales could really be in the 10k range smh!

    • TRNat

      Even if it's 40k he's still a flop. 50 knew it was gonna flop. His websites sales are scanned as well. Plus he aint selling no 100k units there either. That's like his last intercope release with his million twitter followers and huge thisis50.com audience. Nobody bought that album and even less are buying this one. The grave is dug. He made his money in the early 2000's. It's over as an artist.

    • Anonymous

      nah, i don't even think that number is accurate, b/c i dont think they account for what he sold through his own website. if anything, that's where he would go to buy his own album. More of his money comes back to him. no retail fee.

    • junebugg

      this time they released this prediction monday. now they updated it to 40k

  • HipHopTV

    30k is weak for the $ he spent on promo. Album distributed by major label Capital-Universal. Their cut is pretty steep as well as itunes cut. The fool thinking 50 is getting $12/record is in dreamland. There have been 2 generations of fans that have come into the market since 50 was last relevant musically 8 years ago. 50 got his money from early 2000's but he wants to be relevant musically and that's done. Also, the fake G-Unit beef was weak.

  • bruuhh come on

    He already said if it doesn't do well sales wise, he's already made over 3 million so... shit I'd take it.

    • Haters

      He as the same deal Birdman has he makes 80% of his sales. Look at the singles he dropped the first 11 alone made him bank he sold thousands on each of them therefore he may have made close to 3 mill plus interscope paid him 23 mill after he left music sales is done no one buys cd's they buy songs or bootleg it Rick Ross new cd was his best work since his first album and still aint gold the funny thing is he doesnt have a plat yet for an album 50 sold way more alumbs just off his first 2 cds 3 cd went double plat 4 cd went gold and this cd is like an ep its the buzz he's making at the same time everyone knows his name and who g-unit is you'll never know ppl like lil dirk or remember homie quan

    • Anonymous

      How the hell has he made 3 million? lol You 50 lovers would believe him if he said Buck was his son.

    • HipHopTV

      He's lying. He lost money on this project. Capitol-Universal cut, production budget, promo budget was nuts, features, sample clearances, etc. Raekwon got a million check from his first Capital-EMI release and he sold big that first week and month. 30k first week has him deep in the red. Also, 50 probably bought about 20k albums himself. sad! it's been over

    • TRNat

      A lot of other artists selling records so stop it lol! Forget making a fake gunit beef/reunion. If 50 really want to do a reunion that people may actually care about he needs to seek out The Game.

    Yeah I'm the editor who gave that trash a 2. AND WHAT? I'm entitled to my god damned opinion just like the rest of you lowly commoners! You 50 Cent dickriders can all rot in hell for all I care! Bunch of filthy animals clinging to hope that their hero will pull another classic album out of his bullet ridden ass! FUCK OUTTA HERE! 50 Cent is finished and you KNOW it! Don't deny it. I'll still sleep at night knowing I did my job and I'll travel to work the next morning in my new '14 Black Toyota Camry with my bad Colombian bitch riding shotgun smoking a fat ass blunt. Meanwhile you punk ass niggas go & travel to your measly 9 - 5 jobs on some hot ass bus, and eating your cheese sandwiches at lunch that your mom prepared for you. So suck a dick you bunch of losers! I'm out this bitch. PEACE! Journalistic integrity conquers all!! Oh by the way, fuck sales. Mastermind was a slept on classic. You bitch ass niggas wanna give my boy Ross all this fucking support, then dump him like a old pair of tennis shoes. What the fuck is up with you fickle ass clowns any god damn way? Respect a god MC when you it! Well, it's too late because the shoe is officially on the other foot. If I remember correctly, Ross sold ten times the amount 50 Cent is projected to sell before he slid off the charts, thanks to you sorry haters. Yo, on the real, fuck Iggy, fuck 50, fuck John Legend, fuck MJ, fuck Mariah, fuck that happy ass Pharrell, fuck ANYBODY not named Rick Ross. Su ck my fucking 3 inch cock! I'm out, pussies! 350k > 35k

  • mistahmoexiii

    honestly...did you expect it to do serious numbers when he had dropped the virtually wholeover the past 3 months....For an artist like 50 who has a legacy and an incredible catalogue already all he needs is new music to keep him in the news...For real, we havent talked about 50 this much in 5 years...the album has served its purpose...the g unit reunion and Street King Immortal will only reinforce that. Plus these figures from an independent label and are merely projections....never count 50 out....he can come back from almost anything

    • jay

      reinforcing my theory, they updated the prediction. Now their prediction is 40k.

    • jay

      i agree with you with what you saying, but the thing is: i dont wanna sound delusional, but i think niggas should chill the fuck up.. 30k is a flop, of course, but im still aint buying a prediction released a day before the release of the album... hhd posted this on the "rumor" section monday afternoon, a day before the release ofthe album. so, 30k is a flop, but i guess i'll wait til next wednesday to confirm it with the official numbers rather then speculate his "flop" before the flop.

    i don't care what anybody says, that's bad. If i was a Ross fan, i would be eating this nigga alive right now. Better yet, if I was a french montana fan, i would be getting at him. But i'm a 50 fan, and this is disappointing. It's always on how a nigga rebound though. all the greats have hit their low, and came back....em, jay, even dre when he just left death row, so a nigga just gotta take that L and keep it moving.

    G Unit groupie logic: 180k for ross: flop 30k for 50: success. Delusional. My homie sold 50 6 times over.

      The only delusional one is the guy who really thinks Ross is his homie.

    • Anonymous

      Nah i'm with you, i'm a g-unit fan, even bought the album, but you right, a flop is a flop my nigg Only consolation is that this is a 4 year old album he just went on and put out, no lost to his pocket, but still it's 50 cent...should have sold at least 100k on his name alone

  • hahhah

    damn 50 how that karma feel. years of you being on top talking down to camron n all those other indy artist .. now your bottom on the barrel selling 30 k lmaoooo FLOPPPPPPPPPPPP. hes the one who started that bullshit about album sales = good music/revelancy welcome to the bottom of the rap barrel 50

  • poop

    So im a 50 fan, and its awesome to see the ross fans out, but 50 may not sell anymore and the reality is most of the articles about 50 get alot of negative reception the whole "you aint relevant" thing, and i dont believe hes irrelivant because everyone knows this is coming out, only 30 k bought but at least 50 is real, I never liked 50 because he sold however many million, i liked him because he has a spine and wont back down from anything, I dont dislike ross for his beef with 50, i dislike ross cause hes fake, cause hes a liar and cause he has no credibility, I could come out with an album full of lies too, mind you people jumping on fif for not doing big #'s, ross has never done big #'s and he didnt exactly have any bangers off mastermind, regardless of whose more popular now, at least 50 is real

    • HipHopTV

      Irrelevant means you are on national tv shows, large sporting events, big summer concerts, national promo tour, all big radio shows, mtv/vh1, well know history as an artist, serious millions of $, and when you drop an album NOBODY CARES. You are musically irrelevant. Diddy distributed thru major Capital-Universal would do more than 30k lol! And 50 probably bought at least 20k himself with all those millions he got. Still NOBODY CARES!!!

  • Flow17

    The only thing I like about the album is the cover. how the F does he sell less then ross while all these bitches telling ross rapping about a fake life? so who's relevant? hatersssss! haha

  • Anonymous

    If true, that is bad....but my question is, does this prediction include amounts sold on Shop50cent, cuz that's where I bought my copy. Its known that HDD only use figures reported by the big stores (Walmart, Target, etc...) but it seems 50 is steering his fans to use his website to buy the album. Just saying, this number might be off....and with packages being sold out on the website, this might be way off.

  • Anonymous

    Lol at the 50 stans who made fun of ross for only goin gold 50 won't even top out at a 100k and don't start the while independent rout Macklemore is indi teck 9 and Mac miller just to name a few 5o is done! It's so funny just last week the Stan's were saying he was gonna outsell ross hahaha 50 is at the bottom of the rap game and ross just keeps getting bigger plus mastermind is a way way better album than this album this is prob 50s worst album behind bisd

    • Anonymous

      The only thing you're right about is Ross getting bigger. He sure is putting on weight.

    • ThatDude

      Doesnt matter what 50 does now when it comes to him dropping albums. He put his stamp on the industry over 10yrs ago so hes good. 50 about making that major paper with business ventures. Making LP's & EP's is a hobby for him now.

    NO SHOCK HERE....50 HASN'T BEEN RELEVANT SINCE 2006 AND HIS NEW PROJECT IS ABSOLUTE GARBAGE. "ACTUALLY" WORSE THEN GARBAGE

Sk will be his album he pushes..... he was smart with this release. he pretty made money off a mixtape. i aint findin excuses just statin facts. dude is smart plus he got some heavy buzz with da unit right now, u guys make me laugh sayin his career is dead. gtfho. everybody taalkin about him g unit right now

    • Anonymous

      LOL, this is an official album. Have you seen his press run? He's been everywhere. He did "push" this album, and hard. That boosted his sales to ... 30,000. You really think most people are following this so closely they're sitting this one out because they're really waiting for that SKI? Come on.

    • Anonymous

      that shit won't do 100k either

  • reem

    35,000 x $12=$420,000 minus (10 percent for distribution $42,000) minus he probably negotiated those videos upfront for a bulk price $3,000 a piece 13 videos minus $39,000=$339,000 also dont forget if he sold $1,000 of those combos with $20 tee shirts another $20,000 +$339,000= $359,000 also he sold out of the $5,000 bundles for personal meet and greet another low estimate of 20 people =$100,000 for the meet and greet total estimated payout $459,000 for one week...thats probably a better payout then a gold selling artist on a major label.

    • Anonymous

      Still a waste of a formula. I'd rather see him do that for a new artist. 500k is pisswater to 50 so why all the detailed accountancy lol

    • HipHopTV

      dude you dreaming. His distro is thru major label Capital-Universal. They getting theirs. itunes is getting theirs. Plus the amount of $ 50 spent on promo or had capital-universal spend on promo, production, features, sample clearances has him in a deep hole on this project. No $ being made at all if he sold decent. Def not being made off an album that will top out at 60k or so. 50 used to sh*t on other rapper's sales...Karma. He's toast as an artist. He was a classic dude back in the early 2000's but it's been over for a very long time.

    Can't blame Jimmy Iovine for this one....

  • OUCH!

    Not bad, Practically he left no breathing room for any single to pop and no major label backing. I thought honestly he was going to do 90k or something,Tech N9ne numbers.

    • HipHopTV

      Capital-Universal is a major label and is distributed his album. That makes it all the worse. The last Lloyd Banks album on Capital-EMI did much better.

    • TRNat

      it's not a low budget project and was distributed by a major label. his promo was nuts. 50 was everywhere nationally. As someone stated about, people just don't care anymore about 50 as an artist. he still does a great interview. I remember his last interscope release years ago. Nobody cared then. Much less than nobody cares today.
