Well, Kanye is gearing up to releasing his third album, "Graduation" soon. It was supposed to drop in September, but it got moved up to late August. :D

Kanye has made a music video for the song "Can't Tell Me Nothing." I don't know if that's the first single or not, but looking at Wikipedia, it says the song charted at #73 on the R&B charts. Can anyone tell if this is true?

Does anyone have the sales figures for Kanye's last two albums?

they released the single too early + with little airplay = no "Gold Digger" coming at all!

Kinda. It's more to promote a mixtape that he released with the same name. However, it does build a buzz for Graduation, so that can't hurt.

"Can't Tell Me Nothing" is number 45 on the Hot R&B and Hip-Hop Tracks and number 21 on the Hot Rap Tracks. :D


"Stronger" is going for radio adds this week, so hopefully it will show up on the charts next week.

I'd not say that "Can't Tell Me Nothing" is doing great, it seems to be a very small hit! :roll:
I hope that amazing "Stronger" will hit radios and will be gainin' plenty of spins soon!! :P

I hope "Stronger" climbs higher, hopefully top ten. Airplay seems to be picking up, maybe if it does well on iTunes it can go top 10/20.

yes, surefire Top 10 hit! It's not gonna match the success of "Gold Digger" but it could do pretty well
