Early projections of Tyga’s debut album Careless World: Rise of the Last King are out and it is expected to sell approximately 70,000 to 80,000 copies in its first week of (digital) release.
All sales of the album, which were pulled from retailers due to an uncleared Martin Luther King, Jr. sample, come from digital sales. Tyga appeared on V-103’s Greg Street to discuss the recall of the album in a recent interview. “Basically, [the stores and label] recalled them,” Tyga explained.
“I’m looking on my Twitter and fans are hitting me up all day like, posting pictures of [the album] and they have some in stores, but then they have a piece of paper next to them saying ‘Recalled – can’t sell.’ I’m like, ‘Yo, this is crazy.’ My fans are going crazy, like, ‘I have it in my hand, I’m thinking about just stealing it, but I wanna buy it though,’ and I’m like, ‘Nah, just go back tomorrow,’ so they’re going to get a lot shipped today [Monday February 20], and it’ll be in stores tomorrow.”
