  • And to start the new page off, some random numbers from the other charts we got on Week 52 from 2012

    Soundtrack chart:

    INT 94 92 74 8 MILE SOUNDTRACK 915 7% 855 4,886,584

    In addition, M2M posted the official SoundScan Year-End chart counting all 52 weeks, and I thought it's a good idea to share all the hip-hop albums that made it into the top 200 in this quiet year for the genre. Not very nice to look at maybe, but good info nonetheless. Only 5 titles within the top 50, and none within the top 15. The numbers will get a bit better in the long term when T.I., Kendrick, Wiz and 2 Chainz rise up a bit, but that's about it...

          Hopefully 2013 will be a much better year for hip hop!

          • Let's hope so, we should see better numbers during Q1 than last year (which isn't hard to do), and it kicks off with ASAP Rocky's release this month - one to watch with a close eye, despite the leak of the album a few weeks ago...

            I'm also pretty hyped about Kendrick cuttin the difference between him and Nicki Minaj, at this rate he will surpass her sometime in March/April by my estimates... Can't wait to get rid of that cover

            How does everyone else rate 2012 in terms of hip-hop sales? What were your biggest surprises and disappointments? Any predictions for 2013?

            • Kendrick Lamar's sales are good surprise for me. Yeah, you noticed it right, can't wait to see Nicki Minaj cover to disappear from our chart!
              Bit disappointed with Big K.R.I.T. sales, I hope he would be big.
              A$AP Rocky going to be very big. For sure.

                2012 in my opinion:

                Winners:

                Kendrick Lamar - already gold, on the way to platinum

                2 Chainz - 2 Chainz had a really big year. Besides having a gold certified album he was featured on every single...

                Macklemore and Ryan Lewis - probably the biggest surprise. This week they sold another 17k for a total of 254k. Given a certain amount of time, they just might reach the gold.

                Future - his abum sold some 250k which is not bad for a debut, he had good singles and a lots of features. Hip-hop listeners where looking forward to Future in 2012

                Lecrae, Kid Ink - both (especially Lecrae) had nice sales for independent albums


                Losers:

                Nicki Minaj - although she has the best selling album of the year, her debut album is almost 2xplatinum while "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" (with a re-release) hasnt even reached platinum yet. Still, she had big singles and gained much popularity (and decent sales)outside the US.

                B.O.B. - debut album reached gold, a feat "Strange Clouds" will hardly achieve. Good thing, he still had big singles sales.

                Lupe Fiasco - "The Cool" and "Lasers" are both gold and even his debut which sold less in the first week is higher in terms of total sales. Food and Liquor dropped on September 25th with first week sales of roughly 90k and since then it coudlnt even double that number.

                The Game - Came a long way since his multi platinum debut. You can hear him now and then saying he doesnt care about album sales because he already sold millions of records. But if your first album sells 586k the first week and your last album 86k... well lets just say thats an unflattering result. Plus, he hasnt had a good single since "My Life".

                Slaughterhouse - Their debut sold 18k in the first week without a major label, so having promotion and production from Eminem and ending up with 52k in the first week isnt much of an achievement.

                Waka Flocka Flame, Big K.R.I.T., Currensy, Big Boi, DMX - all of their albums were considered potential hits

                Also, Nas had a nice first week but dropped quickly, failing to reach gold. Tyga, Meek Mill and Wiz Khalifa all ended the year with underwhelming sales. Rick Ross album debuted with 218k (a week before 2 Chainz) and moved past 500k just this week. As for GOOD music´s Cruel Summer, they will need a lot more time to get there. Maybe with the help of releasing Cruel Winter. Lastly, Ja Rule had a "comeback" in 2012 and sold 17k in almost a year...

                Whats interesting, the best selling album of 2011 sold 964k in it´s first week - almost 200k more than the best selling album of 2012 sold until the end of the year. Pretty bad year for hip hop if you ask me.

                Btw Skycycle, on SoundScan Year-End chart, Eminem sold 387k with just 2 catalog albums. I wonder if the numbers for all of his albums sold in 2012 could be higher than Nicki´s album.

                As for 2013, I think and hope that things can only get better. They certainly will if Eminem releases an album.

                • By the way, HDD´s got A$AP ROCKY sales projections at 130-140k

                  Comment


                  • YOUR TOP 15:

                    RCA should top both the album and singles sales charts next week, as A$AP Rocky and Justin Timberlake (with expected first-week sales in the neighborhood of 350k) make noise in an otherwise typical January sales week.

                    Here's how it looks headed into the weekend:

                    * A$AP Rocky (RCA) 140-150k

                    Les Misérables (Republic) 40-45k
                    Bruno Mars (Atlantic) 35-40k
                    Pitch Perfect (UMe) 35-40k
                    Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 35-40k
                    Lumineers (Dualtone) 27-30k
                    Mumford & Sons (Glassnote) 21-24k
                    Phillip Phillips (19/Interscope) 20-23k
                    One Direction (Syco/Columbia) 18-21k
                    Chris Tomlin (Six Steps) 18-21k
                    Adele (XL/Columbia) 18-21k
                    Rihanna (Def Jam/IDJ) 17-20k
                    Kendrick Lamar (Aftermath/Interscope) 17-20k
                    Imagine Dragons (Interscope) 17-20k

                        Albums marked with bold have had their numbers updated.

                        Lots of news to report this week

                        Within the top 10, both Rick Ross and 2 Chainz cross 500k sold, and Ross loses his 3rd spot in the process. T.I. jumps a spot up to #8, and will surpass the next few entries in the coming weeks. Wiz Khalifa is steady at #10 and might rise further in the next month or two, although his sales have been really disappointing so far.

                        Further down, Game moves to #17, right in front of Lupe Fiasco. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis cross 250k, becoming the 14th album to do this from 2012 and equalling our 2011 result - even though we have 2 additional albums from 2011 that have already sold 250k (or close), but lack updates. Still, it's looking more and more that at least in this category 2012 might be an improvement - the Project X OST, as well as Game and maybe even Lecrae can cross 250k eventually...

                        Waka finally crosses 100k, becoming the 23rd album to do this on our chart - Chief Keef will join him next week, followed by Big KRIT and DJ Khaled in the next few weeks.

                        Kendrick keeps cutting the distance to Nicki - this week he outsold her by 14k+, and the gap is now down to a little over 158,000. Nicki will probably sell around 4k next week, compared with Kendrick's 17-20k predictions - it's looking more and more like late March\April might be the time when K-Dot will take the coveted #1 spot, hopefully on his way to Platinum status.

                          • Do you just use the Soundscan charts for numbers? Or if another source gives a sales number, do you include it in the charts?

                            Reason I ask is, INgrooves/Fontana gives numbers for an artists previous album when they have something new coming out. Thus, we've got updated numbers for a couple 2010-2011 releases. Kutt Calhoun and Brotha Lynch Hung with 16,617 and 26,564 for Raw & Un-Kutt and Coathanga Strangla respectively. Pretty big jumps from the last numbers given here (I think only thing given here for the former was first week numbers).

                            I find it a little strange that we keep seeing a sales update for Tech N9ne's Welcome to Strangeland and not All 6's and 7's. Figured the latter would be selling better to squeeze in inclusion low on a chart somewhere. Anyway...

                              Thanks for these, I will use them in the near future!

                              As far as Tech N9ne goes, you are correct - All 6s and 7s fell out quite some time ago, and judging by Tyler's sales the last time we saw them (around 1k a week a few months ago), I doubt he is going anywhere on the chart... If anything Childish Gambino is selling pretty good and will end up in front of him, most likely...

                              Personally, I am curious to get an update for the Lonely Island album, since they tend to be good Catalog sellers (looking at their older release history), and we haven't had an update for a VERY LONG time... My guess is they are in front of Game somewhere, but by how much?

                                Very good numbers for Rocky, even though 96k were digital sales, so the drop might be quite significant in his 2nd week.

                                Macklemore & RL just hit #1 on the Hot 100 chart, so this album is going to keep on selling... can't say it's a bad thing, our top 20 definitely needs it

                                Kendrick doing great again, and not bad numbers from Chief Keef so far, to be honest when he opened with 50k I thought he will have a hard time sticking around the charts, but his new single has picked up and the album is hanging on...

                                Stay tuned for numbers

                                  Stay tuned for numbers
                                  Meanwhile, the details of Chief Keef´s deal with interscope have been revealed.

                                  http://www.hiphopdx.com/index/news/id.2 ... -6-million

                                  Probably the most interesting fact: "His deals depend on album sales, as Interscope has the right to pull out of the contract if he doesn't sell 250,000 copies of the LP by December 2013." What do yall think?

                                  • Well that's, at a first glance, around 45 weeks to sell ~144k, so about 3,200 per week average. It's hard to say for me, but I think the next few weeks are going to be crucial, if he keeps the momentum and doesn't fall like a rock and fade away (a-la-Lupe-Fiasco), then we might re-evaluate his chances

                                        Despite the album leaking a month early, ASAP Rocky catches #1 on the Billboard 200, with first week sales of almost 139k. His second week predictions are at 35-40k right now, which is to be expected considering that 96,000 digital copies were sold during these first 7 days. Regardless, they are great numbers, and he will definitely by a presence within our chart throughout the year.

                                        In addition, Christian hip-hop artist Sho Baraka drops his 3rd studio album, opening with a little over 4k.

                                          • Big drop for Rocky, but it was to be expected IMO, he had a huge digital percentage in his opening week, the album leaked a month early, and quite honestly - it's kind of become the norm... Some good news from twitter.com/chartnews though

                                            Billboard charts: F**kin Problems jumps 3-2 on Rap Songs, 5-3 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs,19-14 on Digital Songs (83,000) and 29-23 on Radio Songs.

                                            Billboard Hot 100: @asvpxrocky roars 15-10 with his 1st charted title, F**kin Problems, feat. @Drake, @2Chainz and @KendrickLamar.
                                            Otherwise, some very consistent sellers on that chart - Macklemore & RL look like they might go for Gold, while Kendrick just keeps on selling! Even T.I. is doing great, something which I wasn't sure of earlier last year - judging by his performances, he's a sure for Gold as well.

                                              T.I. moves up to #7, while Future rises to #13. Both will jump another spot next week, while Macklemore & RL are closing in on Wiz Khalifa and could outdo him as early as next week as well.

                                              Meanwhile, Kendrick is now 129,217 copies away from Nicki Minaj - this week he outsold her by 14,592 copies (17,901 to 3,309), while last week it was by 14,304 copies (18,232 to 3,928). The difference is actually getting bigger every week, rather than dropping - since K-Dot is quite stable right now, while Nicki quickly lost whatever momentum she gained around the holidays. The finish line is in sight
