As Def Sounds previously reported, Jay-Z and Kanye West broke iTunes first week sales record with Watch the Throne, as they surpassed Coldplay’s 2008 record of 282k sales with 290k in one sales week. Now just a couple of weeks later, Lil Wayne has broke The Throne’s sales record in just 4 days since his latest offering has released on the online retailer.
Lil Wayne has sold more than 300k digital copies of his latest release, Tha Carter IV, since it released on August 29th at Midnight.
Reports have come in that Weezy is close to hitting a million total, physical and digital, sales in his first week as early projections have risen from 700-850k copies sold to between 925,000 and 975,000 copies.
DS will keep you updated when the official numbers for total first week sales for Wayne’s C4 come in on Wednesday.
