In this climate of the music business 100K units moved is nothing to complain about…that’s not exceptional but it’s not a dismal show in numbers.
Looks like Fabolous is on track to getting his very first no. 1 album.
Industry insiders at hitsdailydouble.com have tabulated their one-day sales numbers and project the rapper’s new disc, Loso’s Way, to sell between 95,000 and 100,000 in its first week.
If the estimates are correct, this will be Fab’s first no. 1 album on The Billboard 200. 2007’s From Nothin’ to Something, the Brooklyn rapper’s debut on Def Jam, came close but only peaked at no. 2 with 159,000 units sold.
The album isloosely based on the 1993 gangster flick Carlito’s Way. The official Nielsen SoundScan statistics will be released next Wednesday (August 5). — XXL
