Tyga’s ‘Careless World’ Makes Top 5 Debut

Tyga

Tyga scores the highest debut of his career with his latest album Careless World: Rise of the Last King. Despite a recall of CDs, the Young Money rapper still managed to land in the top 5.

Careless World, featuring the hit single “Rack City,” enters at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, selling 61,000 copies in its first week. Sales were less than predicted due to its late availability at physical retailers. An uncleared sample of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech forced it be pulled and re-shipped to stores. According to Billboard, digital downloads accounted for 83 percent of sales.

Meanwhile, Adele continues her chart reign. After cleaning up at the Grammys and BRIT Awards, the British singer’s album 21 moves an additional 297,000 units. It is now the longest-running No. 1 since Prince & the Revolution’s Purple Rain soundtrack, which held the top spot for 24 weeks.

The late Whitney Houston returns to the charts with three top 10 entries including her self-titled debut (No. 9, 30,000), The Bodyguard soundtrack (No. 6, 47,000), and her Greatest Hits compilation (No. 2, 174,000). Meanwhile, hip-hop duo Chiddy Bang slides in at No. 8 with its debut Breakfast (31,000).

    Nowadays, moving almost 300 000 units in a single week is outstanding. But doing this for 20+ weeks is incredible. Adele has already made history. 18 million worldwide. I ain’t even a fan. Damn.

    I’m surprised Birdman didn’t buy 100,000+ in his first week like he does for the rest

    [Reply]

    Truth Reply:

    @Mike, maybe because birdman doesnt buy his artists albums. Why would he do that in the first place like he said “Thats hustling backwards”.

    MrUnhateable Reply:

    @_iamjones, No actually ur a complete idiot who is so blind by hate. Do you have any proof of birdman buying albums? Just even a little?? No?? Didn’t think so. Your claim birdman buying Wayne, nicki, and Wayne albums is purely based off hate. You can’t STAND the fact ymcmb selling records that you make up shit. So what’s next? Birdman calling every radio station in the country to play ymcmb songs? Oh birdman must have also created a clone machine and buys all the concert tickets to sell out show too. Ur a hater, go support someone u actually like damn

    _iamjones Reply:

    @MrUnhateable please genius better explain how im a hater where in anything i said hate when all labels do the same shit go look how much an artist makes purely off a cd then call me a hater facts are facts no matter how much you sell the label marketing get back they money and where did i say he buys tickets stupid read before speaking

    Truth Reply:

    @_iamjones, If Birdman was buying his artists albums im sure it would have been the top story on every blog site idk where u get your info from but im guessing Mediatakeout. Instead of hating why dont u just accept the fact that Wayne, Drake are two of the biggest artists on that label. The fanbase alone is crazy u would be a complete dumbass to think Birdman bought all those albums. If that were the case why didnt Tyga’s album do better in Itunes sales? Careless world was strickly taken off shelves due to the Martin Luther King clearance issue. Get your facts straight.

    [Reply]

    _iamjones Reply:

    @Truth, no get yours together only two companies took them down target and best buy you could buy them elsewhere and to be real if the clearance issue was a problem why wait so close to it came out hmmmm aint that why take care got push back but why do you think wayne on some many features why you think drake ghostwrite so many songs and the list goes with different artist not just ymcmb ALL labels buys their artists cd but to you im lying

    187JoshM187 Reply:

    @_iamjones, Actually it was ALMOST all stores that took them out because they had a note on the album saying it cannot be sold at FYE so now you sound even more stupid. And you still haven’t said any FACTS about birdman buying their cds.

    James Reply:

    @Mike, maybe it’s because i buy 100,000 copies of all there albums lol

    Nicki Stan!!!!! Reply:

    @Josh your wrong I purchased his album from F.Y.E for $13 on sale and it has the speech on “Careless World” the 1st song on the album so I’m gone need proof that F.Y.E took his CD out the store

  9. CarlosBonegro

    look at rap-up tryna act like this wasnt a flop
    this was a flop dont try hide it
    and it has nothing to do with the re shipping if you go the store and the cd isnt there or its broke then youd just go home and buy it on itunes instead
    i didnt think he should of release an album anyways he doesnt have any proper fans or following

    SdotB Reply:

    @_iamjones, so therefor you’re calling whitney’s cd’s flops too since two of hers weren’t in top 5, and you’re calling everyone at no. 5 and below a flop…hmmm, interesting.

    [Reply]

    _iamjones Reply:

    @SdotB, one his cd sold was basely off itunes cuz of it was took off shelves and he loss there two whitney has nothing to do with it cuz after an artist death their sales always go back up ‘pac,biggie,micheal whitney’and three no more what anyone sells it drops the very next week and the only one person that excludes is adele so interesting as you think your comment was it wasnt facts are facts

    [Reply]

    SdotB Reply:

    @CarlosBonegro, are u serious?? it has A LOT to do with re-calls and re-shipping!! I went to two different stores in attempt to buy the cd and couldn’t b/c they weren’t able to sell it. And for ur info, not everyone has iTunes or wants to buy the electronic version. I actually prefer to buy the hard copy then upload it to my iTunes and iPod. I’m sure there are plenty of others who prefer the same. This album is good and I’m sure it’ll be successful regardless of 1st week sales.

    #teambreezykiki Reply:

    @SdotB, i agree with u they are not stores and everybody doent want to buy on it itunes like me i want the hard copy i think alot folks waniting on the hard copy instead of buying it on itunes this is not a flop tyga album is going to sell

  13. cal

    meanwhile drakes album debuted with nearly 700k lol stay scheming

    [Reply]

    SdotB Reply:

    @cal, ok then declined about 80% the following week. Besides, Drake was already a much established artist by the time that album dropped. This is Tyga’s first album, give him some time to make a name 4 himself and he’ll most likely do better in the 1st week the next time around (assuming there’s no more re-calls and issues).

  15. John

    Wayne debuted with 964K, 1 Million for Carter IV & Carter III
    Drake debuted with 600K for Take Care
    Nicki debuted with 400K for Pink Friday

    They all had huge hits (Top 10 hits) & Platinum selling singles

    Stop hating on YMCMB I admit they aren’t the best I agree but to hate on them is just low ! They are run & successful and what are you !?? Thats what I thought ;)

    For the record I’m an Eminem fan !

    The album was good what fucked him up was the repackaging i don’t think they should of did that atleast wait till it drop and take it to the courts but 61k not I see Alote of rappers do that

  23. James

    are u ppl dumb or what tyga cd is a top 5 hit without the physical copy of the cd those sales are all off of i tunes since his cd got recalled. If he would’ve had physical copies he would’ve sold 300,000-400,000
