Contest: Predict the sales of <i>Graduation</i>

Well, we can't have an album sales contest for 50 Cent and not have one for Kanye. We're tempted to also have one for Kenny Chesney, but he's not exactly Prefix's demographic. Kanye has probably made the headlines more than any other rapper since his last album Late Registration came out, but will he outsell 50?
Take a guess at where Kanye West's latest effort Graduation will end up on the charts along with the number of albums he will sell (the latter will be the tie-breaker). Winner gets the $20 gift certificate to Amazon.

  • Predict in the comments where Kanye West's new album, Graduation, will chart, as well as how many copies will sell during the first week.

  • Predictions after Saturday (September 15, 2007 will be disqualified)


  • $20 gift certificate to

Other major releases include new efforts from Animal Collective, Black Elephant (Prince Paul), Black Lips, Dirty Projectors, Go! Team and Qui. Check out Prefix's Week in Preview to read the previews.

***This contest is open to everyone, including Prefix staffers.

I think Kanye will enter the charts at: #1 offcourse!And he'll probably sell a lot of copies of Graduation,so my guess is 924.500 albums!

Wait...looks like somebody else already said 1 million. So I predict that it will make it to the top of the charts and sell somewhere around 1.1 million records. That's #1 with 1,100,000 records sold.
