Watch The Throne moving 436,000 copies its first week between the super power of Jay-Z and Kanye West isn’t “wowing” many online users… they’re waiting to see week 2.
Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Watch the Throne” arrives, as expected, at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, selling 436,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan. It’s the second-largest sales week of the year for an album, behind only the 1.1 million start of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.”
“Throne” was available exclusively through iTunes from Aug. 8-11 before going on sale at all digital and physical retailers on Friday, Aug. 12. SoundScan’s tracking week ended on Sunday, Aug. 14.
“Throne” sold 321,000 downloads, marking the second-largest digital week ever, behind only the 662,000 moved by “Born This Way” in its first week earlier this year. While SoundScan does not disclose retailer-specific sales figures, sources say “Throne” broke iTunes’ one-week sales record — with nearly 290,000 digital copies sold through the retailer.
“Throne” also earns Jay-Z his 12th No. 1 and West his fifth. For Jay, the achievement extends his record as the solo act with the most No. 1 albums in history. Only The Beatles, with 19 No. 1s, have more. – Billboard

50 Cent rhymed, “I shoot the dice and holla “get ‘em girls”/ Daddy need new shoes/ Daddy need Pirellis to look mean on 22s.” He forgot to mention his son Marquise needs 50 pairs of new shoes to go back to school! Yup, Marquise told his pops he needs 50 pairs of brand new sneakers to “stunt” back on this other kid showing off in his school! Marquise’s mother, Shaniqua reveals a boy in his class stunted on him and said he has 50 pairs of sneakers.” And Mariquise said, “How the hell he got 50 pairs of sneakers, and his father is a lawyer, and my dad is on THE FORBES’ LIST!!”
Shaniqua tells 50 Cent, he’s not average — 20 pairs of new sneakers is a responsible number for Marquise!!
… at least Fif and Shaniqua’s relationship is healthy.
