‘Watch The Throne’ Predicted To Sell 400-500,000 In Its First Week

    The highly anticipated Jay-Z and Kanye West collaboration album Watch the Throne was released today exclusively on iTunes. The album will be released to all other retailers, both physical and digital, this Friday, Aug. 12. With first week sales expected to be between 400,00 and 500,000, Watch the Throne is set to be the second-largest release of the year, right behind Lady Gaga’s Born This Way that sold 1.1 million in its first week. Although Watch the Throne will most likely take the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Album charts, predicting first week numbers is a bit harder due to its dual release. A live stream of the album is available here. [Billboard]
