In 2008, three years of sweltering hype made Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter III a sought after disc, culminating in a first week sales tilt of 1.01 million albums sold. Fast forward three years later and obviously nothing has changed in major releases for Tunechi. According to HitsDailyDouble, the group that charts album sales for Billboard reporting purposes, Weezy’s latest album broke the bank once again, selling 1.06 million albums starting from last Sunday.

What does it mean? Obviously Birdman is rubbing his hands together in celebration after doubling the sales total of his newfound rivals Jay-Z & Kanye West‘s recent album and it also means that Weezy’s fan base believes in purchasing albums. Meaning, we will get a Carter V unless Wayne sticks to those quotes in XXL about retirement.
