Three weeks after Jay-Z and Kanye West set a single-week album sales record for iTunes with their “Watch the Throne” CD, Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” has set a new bar, selling over 300,000 downloads in its first week of release.
“Throne,” which was only available on iTunes the first four days of its release, sold 290,000 in its first week, according to Billboard.
Carter, which has been available in both digital and physical forms its first week, is en route to selling 850,000 copies overall in its first week, reports Billboard.
