UGK Has The #1 Album In The Country!!
« on: August 14, 2007, 02:12:22 PM »
Congratulations to Bun B & Pimp C!!

from hitsdailydouble, notables: (keep in mind there usually off by a couple thousand, no more than 3-5)

1. UGK - 156,133
2. Plies - 91,108 (he had t-pain on 1st single, akon on 2nd, but was still no match 4 UGK)
7. Common - 51,965 (a 67% dip in sales, god-damn!!)
8. Fergie - 50,256 (how this bitch still selling that much?)
9. T.I. - 44,592 (very respectable for his 6th week, he'll be the first rap artist platinum in 2007, just like he was in 2006)
15. Sean Kingston - 34,893 (damn, he flopped...a 53% drop from last week, i think this is his 2nd week)

So would that actually be double that for UGK since it is a double cd?

I'm not sure how reliable my souce is, but a few months back T.I. was asked if T.I. VS TIP was gonna be a double disc, 1 side TI, other side TIP...he said to do that would be a waste for him, because 2-disc albums don't get tallied as 2 sales like they use 2...he said he mines would of been giving away the music 4 free

i am not 100% though, but that is what he said...

I know they have to be so many minutes each to be considered a double album. If it has that, they would count it twice. Seems like those numbers are counting it as one purchase. If it goes gold in a few weeks including the dropoff in sales it is probably counted twice, just not on the actual tally HDD is posting.

Nas' album Streets Disciple sold around 700-800k and it is certified platinum so they may still honor the double album count.

If that's true then he's retarded. Who cares if the RIAA counts it as two or not (the basic rule is that if the music execeeds 80 minutes it's 2 if not then it's 1) it has no affect on the money either way. If you're selling a 2 disc album for 20 to 25 dollars you get more money per unit than selling a single disc album for 12 dollars.  It's not like you could sell a double disc for 15 dollars and somehow soundscan makes it worth 30 dollars.

I finally got around to coping this but haven't had a chance to listen yet.  If they hit #1, that's good for them in this day and age, but I kinda doubt they're gonna hit Gold with those kinds of first-week sales.  Still, the fact that the reviews have been so positive is encouraging for me from a musical perspective, which is what counts the most.

Although I've certainly noticed the attention "International Playas' Anthem" seems to be getting down here in the South, which is kinda odd cause I slept on it for so long.
