    Fans Flock to Retail to Grab Up the Follow-up to Kanye West’s 2004 Breakthrough

    August 31, 2005

    The college dropout has graduated magna cum laude, with early returns of Kanye West’s just-released Late Registration indicating the album will reack up a first-week tally north of 800k, with a real shot at 850k.
    The album is a testament not only to the urbane rapper’s broad appeal but also to a brilliant setup by Def Jam/IDJ, as the red-hot label continues to ride high under the leadership of L.A. Reid and Shawn Carter. I mean, the cover of Time the week before release—that’s getting it done!

    Tony Yayo, the latest G-Unit member to release an album, is rapping his way toward a strong showing in the vicinity of 225k on his Interscope debut, putting UMG and hip-hop in the first two slots on next week’s chart.

    Shooting for #3 are Brooks & Dunn (Arista Nashville), with 100k-125k in their sights, as Joe Galante and Butch Waugh’s RCA Label Group stays on its hot streak heading into the all-important Q4.

    And that’s not all, folks. The major-label debut of indie darlings Death Cab for Cutie (Atlantic) should finish in the 70k-80k neighborhood, while Rihanna, another emerging artist from Def Jam/IDJ, should bow at 60k-65k. Warner Bros. veteran Eric Clapton is on his way to 40k-50k, the same range as Cold, from embattled Lava. Another up-and-coming rock band, Virgin’s 30 Seconds to Mars, is off the launch pad and rocketing toward 30k, putting the Jared Leto-led group in a contest with Columbia’s Our Lady Peace (25k-30k), half of whose sales are expected to be on the DualDisc format. Not far behind will be From Autumn to Ashes (20k), as happening indie Vagrant continues to delight distributor Fontana.

    The other noteworthy debut is Columbia/Legacy’s two-CD soundtrack to No Direction Home, the Martin Scorsese-directed documentary on the young Bob Dylan, which looks good for 25-30k nearly a month before PBS airs it in two parts (9/26-27). The film will also be released in expanded form on DVD. And by the way, it’s brilliant.

    So the music biz is experiencing a dramatic turnaround after going in the dumper last week, experiencing a 6% drop from the previous week, while plummeting by 11.3% from the comparable week of 2004. The weekly tally of 9.6 million units represents the second lowest figure of the year; in the third week of January, 9.5 million were sold. Year-to-date sales are 364.6 million, down 8.3%, or 33.1 million, from last year at this point.

              Yayo might get high sales, but his album leaked on the net awhile ago. So that probable fuck up his sales.

                          Yayo probably wont get any higher than gold. His album isnt getting any good reviews. And the only people feelin him are G-Uint groiupies who just get the cd for the features.
                          I ain't the shit bitch, I'm the motherfucking commode
                          And fuck everybody that ain't Z-Ro, that's on my soul

                            That record sells shit HAS to be fake
                            I don't buy none of that stuff..

                            Now Artists are selling 800,000 IN THE FIRST WEEK (kanye, 50)
                            there's no way.. with all the bootlegging that goes on- there's NO WAY they doin those numbers

                            Eminem who is basically the biggest icon in MUSIC right now (and in the past 5+ years) was only selling like 250,000 in his first week- and that was KILLING it at the time

                            now trash ass rappers like TONY YAYO do EMINEM numbers and everybody just ACCEPTS this?

                            I'm tellin yall... That shit is phoney
                            I might hafta down-shift before I lose y'all- I know it's hard to keep up with the Porsche Carrera flow in a used car.

                              Stupid piece of shit, those are projected sales, projected shit is usually way off.
