Hip Hop Album Sales: Trey Songz, Iggy Azalea, Pharrell, Eminem, 50 Cent

Album sales figures are in for the week of 07/13/2014. Trey Songz tops the Hip Hop/R&B list with "Trigga."

This week, Trey Songz continues his chart-topping success with the top album in Rap/R&B. Songz's Trigga is followed by Iggy Azalea's The New Classic and Michael Jackson's Xscape on this week's Billboard Top 200 albums chart.

Trey Songz's Trigga Hits At #5

Trey Songz's Trigga dropped from #1 to #5 this week, experiencing a 67 percent drop in sales. The album went from 104,713 copies sold in its first week of availability to 34,108 units sold this week. Overall, the album has sold 297,353. The album also earned a 4 out 5 X rating on HipHopDX. "As the soundtrack for when the turn up eventually involves turning down the sheets, Trey Songz has been one of the last decade’s most dependable hit record-making artists," HipHopDX says in its review. "In hearkening back to his roots, he showcases his desire to not slow down for 10 more years. Wild, yet well-delivered songs showcase Songz as a master of a now lyrically unrestrained mainstream R&B standard."

Iggy Azalea's The New Classic Remains In Top 20

Iggy Azalea's The New Classic continues its success in the chart's Top 20. The rapper sold 12,820 units of her album, a 9 percent dip from last week's 14,029 copies sold. Overall, Azalea's Classic has sold 233,103 units in 12 weeks of availability. In June, Azalea announced that she would release a new version of The New ClassicThe New Classic earned a 2 and a half out of 5 X rating on HipHopDX when it was released. "The New Classic is a musical throne upon which the new blonde princess of Pop can rest her ample posterior," HipHopDX says in its review. "As Rap and Pop synergize again—yet this time without significantly embarrassing results—it opens the gate for Iggy Azalea to have an opportunity to shine. Sometimes, when Pop marketing and urban music perfectly commingle, we get Michael Jackson’s Thriller. In other cases, Iggy Azalea’s The New Classic aims high, but ultimately falls flat."

Michael Jackson's Xscape Keeps Its Slot In Top 20

Now in the album's ninth week of availability, Michael Jackson continues his Top 20 chart success with Xscape. The album sold 12,619 units this week, a four percent decrease in sales from last week's 13,083 copies sold last week. Overall, Xscape has sold 364,656 units. In June, Forbes reported on the success Michael Jackson's work has had since the singer's passing. "Add up the earnings of Jay Z, Taylor Swift and Kanye West since 2009, and the total is $544 million," Forbes said at the time. "It’s an astounding sum, but Michael Jackson has earned more than all three—combined—since his death five years ago." Xscape only helps that figure grow.

    "stop it nigga he wasn't even top 20 on forbes last year, just like he tied with the drummer from the roots and officer ricky making a measly 6 milli" It is true that Mac Miller only made a measly 6 milli like 50 and officer ricky but he was able to out sell 50 snitch by a couple hundred thousand copies and he didnt have to drop a video for every song or start a beef with a fashion designer to promote his album.

    "homeboy should have mentioned nelly though." Nelly had a nice run too: 5 Gold/Platinum albums from 2000-2008 !! you gotta respect what Nelly did, he was the first rapper from his state to blow like that and he didnt come in the game with any major co-signs or hype. Nellys 6th album dropped in 2010 and he did 325,000 but he fell off officially after that.

    face the facts, 50 is no longer the big artist he thought he was, people are making fun of his sales because of his cocky statements he always makes about him being an A list artist,for all you clowns talking about he released all the songs before the album dropped, that was his fault with that failed marketing plan, he can no longer fault interscope, he had a lot of press and was everywhere for the launch of this album, a flop is a flop, its no saving grace that dude is now independant, Mac Miller sells at least a hundred thousand or better his first week out. 50 next album wil be differnt beats with the same nigga im rich and i will shoot you lyrics that keeps him in a box that gets smaller and smaller with every album release.middle finger to all the 50 dick riders that will replie anonymously with hate under my comment lol

    " With a name as big as 50 Cent's, plus all his popularity, even when going independent he should have sold way more than that. That album was a fail, sales wise." ""Tell that to Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Ice-T, Rakim, Fat Joe, Ja Rule etc. Huge names in hip-hop putting out flop after flop. They only wanna shit on 50 though."" Rakim was never a huge artist his solo albums never went platinum but he is still the most respected and revered emcee to grace a microphone his joint album with Eric B was platinum in 1987 Ice T has 5 Gold albums from 1987-1993 dropping classics before CDs were even popular, a true pioneer on top of the game before Drake could crawl or walk. Ice Cube has 7 Gold/Platinum albums from 1990 to 2006 and a couple more classic albums with NWA starting in 1988 so his longevity in the game speaks for his greatness and legendary status. Snoop Dogg has 8 Gold/Platinum albums from 1993-2006 thats longevity in the game and a carrer most rappers envy. Fat Joe was never a huge name he had two Gold/Platinum albums from 1998-2001 but he has 10 solo albums with his debut in 1993 and his last album in 2013....a 20 year career for Jose. Almighty Ja Rule had a nice run with 5 Gold/Platinum albums from 1999-2004 a six year run before the Feds shut his label down. 50 Cent had 4 Gold/Platinum albums from 2003-2009 before Eminem dropped him for Slaughterhouse. Some rappers just dont have what it takes to maintain a long career and we should never compare the pioneers, legends and greats to the gimmicky rappers who blew up and fell off after a few years and a few albums.

    Lmao the back & forth arguments over 50's sales are pointless. It's 2014...he hasn't had a huge single since 2007, he's independent now, his fan base started declining ages ago, he's failed to adapt & the hip hop landscape is completely different nowadays. Pharrell/Iggy have 2 of the biggest songs in the world & neither one of them hit the 6 figure mark the first week. How the hell do y'all expect someone who really hasn't been relevant musically in years to do that? Lol stop hating 50 or dick riding him. Quit making excuses for him or saying he flopped. His ass is simply on a level playing field now. He's not a top dog anymore. Nowadays, most artist fall in that 40 to 60k range. News flash...records don't sell like that anymore. Face the facts, he's not a huge artist anymore so y'all shouldn't be expecting these huge sales numbers.

    • darius

      Bruh...I don't care lmao. I just think it's pointless. 50's fans keep making excuses for him & his haters have been screaming for the longest that he fell off.

The true artists like Nas, Cube, Ross, Snoop, Too Short, Ghostface, Kanye, Common, Scarface, JayZ, Em, Busta, T.I., Ludacris all maintained their core fans over a 5 album span because they made music their core fans were willing to support. Damn homie, 100K on ya 5th album is pathetic, even Game did 250 on his 5th studio album, and Ja Rule went Gold on his 6th album after his beef with G Unit....some rappers are not built to last, the hype wears off and the fans get bored and look for better music.

      Of course selling records is not what it used to be illegal downloading changed the game and now you have streaming apps and 24 hr digital stations to name a few leaks in the sales bucket. In context? Adjust accordingly to the time/era that we are in and how much promo and finances were put into a project. Indie artists dont get that major label budget so they foot the cost on a lot of things but an Indie artist worth half a Billion has enough money to get the very best of everything.

No one cares for Nas?! Are you from Finland or Uzbekistan? Nas last album (2012) sold 385K with no big features or the food Dr on his singles, Nas is legend just listen to his 50 diss on "Queens Get the Money".

      Prove each single sold 20-30k. Then try and explain why 90k supposedly made him millions when Macklemore, who was also indie, actually did numbers and posted hit singles which sold millions. Indie or major, there's still a blueprint to what defines your project as a success or a failure. 50 cashing a check doesn't mean he won. He cashes many checks, but then again so does Jay.

      Video budgets can eat up your budget quick, you hire the director and the models and rent the Red camera and the vehicles pay for security at the location, the catering and the whole nine and whatever else you want for the video.... You can go cheap and rent out a green screen studio but if you are a major artist you cant go the cheap route, Tyler does a great job with his visuals for an Indie artist with a minimal budget. Imagine how much it costs to film a quality music video for every song on an album......

      The budget for Animal Ambition? Who honestly knows besides Curtis accountant and himself: Production Guest Features/Guest musicians Recording Sample Clearances Mixing & Mastering/Eingeneering Album/Single artwork Pressing & Packaging Etc. ^^^ those are pretty much the expenditures as far as the hard product itself is concerned. Promotions/Marketing = Billboards, Online banners, Street team promo, E team promo, Magazine promo, TV promo Radio/DJ/ProgramDirector (payola) Music Video/Vlog Etc. Your promotional tour will have expenditures as such = Airfare & Hotel accommodation Security detail TownCar/Limosuine service Catering/Cuisine Stylist/Barber (wardrobe/hygiene) Etc. Drop your album and the label/distributer gets their cut and then ITunes gets their 30% or so from digital sales and then you get the crumbs if there are any....I left a lot of expense out but those are a few off top.

    Iggy is supposedly the hottest shit out with a number 1 song for what seems like months now and shes only at 233k? LOL

    • Anonymous

      233 isn't great, but it's still mountains above Curtis Jackson's pathetic 90k showing despite endless hype.

      Just a moment for them to stroke that superiority complex. They did the same thing when kreayshawn had that song out

    iggy continues to run the rap game with the fucking classic. Platinum singles and consistant sales

  • yeayea

    50 gave u the album 2 months before it came out didnt have a major label to pay radio for play and still sells 100k. some of u teens just love to hate on another man. get up get out and go succeed at something and see if u care to hate on an artist u dont even listen to

      Yeayea, hit the brand new clear channel/iggy article and come back and laugh at these naive children

      ive been a fan of hip hop over 25 years and cant recall one album i had to look at the charts to see if i like it or not. if u like 50 then AA is a good listen. if u hate him with a passion and blame him for all your failures in life this album doesnt change your mind. in a time where rappers are wearing dresses i refuse to say 50 is the one who needs to go away

      Come with it bitch. I brought bisd for the jmj dvd. To me war angel and big 10 are nice. Bought dtr too, best sh#t is rozays maybach music songs. Know jay electronica got music out even though i dont agree with everything he says. Hov gets lazy but he stills says some real ish. Hate young thug sold himself for $25k but that ti hook goes Why do YOU choose sides bitch? You just a piece of sh#t. I have no problem showing the world how worthless you are

      You see it yeayea, appreciate a real music fan convo. Now lets look at this fool trying very hard to get us to even dislike a song from one artist they are obssessed with hating on. Witness how they typed every move he's made though. That's your 2014 "fan"

    • yeayea

      Point proven! Idk if he sells 100k or 10 mil if I want the music I will just buy and listen...never needed the charts to tell me what's hot. Either way I would really hate myself if my life depended on rooting for another man to fail.

      Never seen this many excuse for an album that obviously flopped and underperformed. Curtis has his own website, his own headphones, his own label Trey Songz on his single, Dr Dre on his single, he did SummerJam in front of 80,0000 and still couldn't sell as many albums as Earl SweatShirt.

      Now youre getting it. They follow twitter accounts, watch reality shows, troll comment sections, steal music, but every wednesday theyre label execs Those are actions of those trying to fit in, not of music lovers. If they were buying music they would know best buy wont carry thousands of a trey songz cd in one store, they would have gone thru artist rungs with many less than 20 there.

    • yeayea

      anybody who brags on Iggy success while shitting on actual hip hop artist should kill theirself immediately. the same people who watch the charts follow others to see what to listen to

    you people are dumb. the album was a mixtape that was released before the album dropped. macklemore didn't release every song before the album came out. This was a feeler album on the indie tip but street king will be a bigger deal. you guys all hate on the boy but all you bitches turn on your computer and waste all this time talking about fif. deep down you want his nuts in your mouth.

      The heist was ignored for 2 years LMAO! just stop it

      Mackelmore didnt have to release song after song looking for a hit single because his singles hit the charts and stayed there and he has enough respect for his fans to give them hot songs and not throwaway Mixtape tracks that suck so bad the critics puke.

      They dont care, their ignorance says he sold 10m 11 years ago he should be able to do it now, even when they steal 99% of their music

    50 Album is Independent, so comparing it to all these others on the charts makes no sense. He's the only one charting INDEPENDENT.

      macklemore had a number 1 pop hit that was getting played in office buildings accross the world. he sold over 1 million one time but he will never be able to do it again. if 50 made songs for homos and hipsters he might sell like that too.

      that maclamore guy did over a million on an indie and he was an unknown artist. curtis is an established artist who sold like 15 Mill records on his first album. I dont give a fuck if hes indie, he has no excuse for flopping that hard.

    • Anonymous

      You act like that's some kind of noble feat. 90k is nothing, especially for an artist who sold 1 million in a week.

  • LOL

    Em been out for 8 months and sold more than 50 on what? his third week?

    50 can barely crack 100k, and judging by the vid of him at Best buy, buying mad copies of try songz' album, he bought over half of that.

      ^ and thats how we know they dont buy music They be telling on themselves and dont even know.

      LOL, these are probably the same people who thought J Cole bought half his 1st week sales, when he and Drake only went to ONE Best Buy and bought about 50-60 copies.

    • Anonymous

      Then be sure to read because we're talking about trey songz. Only a child who doesnt shop and knows nothing about inventory thinks a music store will have close to 10,000 trey songz albums in stock. The distribution center isnt even getting that amount in that whole region.

      im pretty sure if someone was going around buying out all the copies of animal ambition from the stores we would be hearing about it.

      its been 6 weeks and hes at 90k but you say he can barely crack 100? LOL wait until summer is over. and because a guy bought a few dozen cds to support his friend you think that means he bought 50 thousand copies of his own album? HAHAHAHA

      Silly child actually thinks some PA best buy carries more than 1000 copies, lol you dont go shopping at all. 25-40 copies from 2 weeks ago is what happened

    50's sales really aren't too bad when you look at how they compare with Trey Songz or Iggy. Iggy is huge right now and only has pushed 200k, even with a 4x platinum single. Both these artists have promoted these albums to the limit via they're major label. Let's see how 50 does with his Street King Immortal, if he can push higher sales with that we can properly judge if he has 'fallen off' or if it's just the universal change within the industry.

      Street King has already flopped. Remember all those singles they released hoping to generate buzz? Unless he went back and re-did every song it's going to barely sell 200K. Oh, and Iggy is everywhere. That 4x platinum single is netting her crazy cash, plus her collabo with that teenager is huge. 50 only wishes he had a hit song to fall back on right now.

    • gfkjg

      Iggy will have steady sales all year round and more when new singles come out, I wouldn't be suprised see that crack gold then maye even more eventually. Her album will sell shit loads more.

  • Kaveshan

    That bitch Iggy still charting...Atrocious how one so marketable can be forced to the welcoming masses who's musical taste in no different to the dumb. Jesus will not be happy with those doing sin for money in this evil industry where Satan dominates and recruits more slaves
