The Early Predictions Are In: ‘Watch The Throne’ Is Projected To Sell Between 400-500,000 In The First Week

According to Billboard.com, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s collaborative LP Watch The Throne is projected to sell between 400,000-500,000 copies in the first week. That would instantly become the second-largest sales week of the year, behind Lady Gaga’s 1.1 million opener for Born This Way. The album was released today August 8 exclusively through Apple’s iTunes Store.

The projected first week sells are great for an album without a video and little promotions. Jay-Z is my idol and favorite rapper. What he did for Hip-Hop is unbelievable. Kanye is a genius and one of the best lyricists in the game. I heard the album in its entirety and in my opinion it’s the greatest album I’ve heard since Jay-Z Hard Knock Life.
