Watch the Throne Lands #1 On Billboard

blame it on Shake August 17, 2011

With 436k copies sold, Jay-Z and Kanye West throw yet another #1 album under their belt. While there wasn’t any doubt that they would do it, I figured they would sell more units in the first week. Then again, selling 321k digital sales (290k on iTunes alone, breaking Coldplay’s previous record) might have hurt overall sales as retailers only had two days (as far as SoundScan tracking goes) to sell anything. I’m curious to see what the two push this week.
