It has been almost two years since Wale dropped his debut album Attention Deficit. Although the album received positive reviews, the young D.C. rapper felt that Interscope, his label at the time, did not do enough to push sales.
With a surprise move to Warner Brothers’ Maybach Music Group and a team behind him led by Rick Ross, Wale’s sophomore album, Ambition, is looking to be a number one contender on the Billboard charts. With only one full day of sales, Ambition, already dominating the iTunes Hip Hop charts, is predicted to sell between 170-190K units, putting him behind Justin Bieber’s holiday album, Mistletoe which is trending towards 200-225K.
Solid figures will be released next Tuesday.
