The Throne made big news on the Billboard charts following their release recently, even setting a record for digital downloads on iTunes. Find out how much Jay-Z and Kanye sold inside....

 

The Throne help set a record on iTunes last week as they clocked in with 290K in digitals downloads.

But the good news didn't stop there.  The total sales number to 436,078 units once their store-bought purchases were added in. So it goes without saying the Kanye and Jay's Watch The Throne album is number one this week.

In other chart news, Def Jam artist Ace Hood's Blood, Sweat & Tears debuted at #10 with 25K, while Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame landed at #24 with Ferrari Boyz at 14K.

I dont think this really

I dont think this really reflects anything, because i know alot of people who dont buy music but have it in their ipod. I personally only like 5 songs on the album but they are going to make lots of money off of this venture

Those two fools gone and

Those two fools gone and disgrace Otis Redding's classic Try a little tenderness with their hood rap song about money, women and material stuff. They didn't want to include a woman who has the same complexion and hair as them in their video and that's what they get. I'm very happy the album didn't do well. It will be out of the charts in a few weeks!

The numbers are pretty

The numbers are pretty standard for these 2. Kanye's MBDTF came out at #1 with 496K, and Jay-Zs last Blueprint hit #1 with 476K. But it didn't touch Eminem's Recovery which sold 741Ks in the first week. *kanye shrug*

Allow me to do the math for

Allow me to do the math for you homie, that's 290k in digtal sales alone. Plus 436,078 units in store. Equals 726,078 total sales in a week and a half. Everybody knows Eminem has a larger main stream fanbase than anybody in hip-hop so what's your point? *kanye shrug* That just broke records so stop hatin' dumb dumb.

Okay! What's the big deal?

Okay! What's the big deal? These two did better by themselves. Together they sold lesser units! By next week, they will be out the charts! Whatever happened to Kanye's album My beautiful...? I would rather have an album open up with an average 200, 000 - 350, 000 units and stay on the charts for a year than have an album open up with huge numbers then in about a month it's out the charts only selling a total of 700,000 units.

Two of the the biggest name

Two of the the biggest name rappers in the game and they could not hit a million in sales. Ye could of did these numbers by himself. Next time Ye should leave Jay at the retirement home where he belongs because he does not need him on an album. Lyrically, Ye is on fire.

What’s God to a Non-Believer? Well, what’s an entertainer but a paid deceiver What’s God to a Non-Believer? Well, what’s an entertainer but a paid deceiver It’s a cold world, hearts and minds the battle field Do we get it how we get it by making the blood spill? Minds have been a terrible thing to waste And lyrical destruction leaves not a trace Dead bodies, empty shells/ Some believe in God Denying there is a Hell Which God you believe in/ Cause the devil is deceiving I watch’em Bible on the hip/ Christ wisdom automatic I’m cutting through the bull like I’m weaving through the traffic To save hip hop?/ Naw, hip hop been dead Chalk outlined- Single shot to the head Why you say that?/ No, Why you say that? I love the kids – Im watching they back Real hip hop was lyrics vs lyrics Real hip hop nobody wanna hear it Catz in there videos/ Dead corpses on their side Two black boys giggling/ White girls in their ride All lapped up/ Image shows a good time Little girls watching/ Thee attack on their minds What’s God to a Non-Believer? Well, what’s an entertainer but a paid deceiver

This number is extremely low for two of the biggest hip-hop artist in the game. Kanye sold more as a solo artist.

Also, I believe they have the same fan base and people aren't going to buy the same album twice, so the numbers are great.

this is not low. you have to remember these are LEGAL sales numbers. artist don't make money from album sales anymore they make money from performances and endorsement deals. majority of "The Throne" will be ILLEGALLY down loaded or boot legged in the hood.

???????? Every album gets bootlegged so what's your point? and artits have never really made money from cd sales, but from touring etc. so again. what's ur point? Jay and Kanye shouldnt have to depend on "the hood" for sales anyway. They are two huge crossover artists who sale the majority of their product to white suburbia. Decent numbers, but as hyped as this album was, a lot of people didnt buy into it. no pun intended.

Even though I dont aspect

Even though I dont aspect much more from individuals Who have not been BORN AGAIN-(True Worshipers, Non-Church Bench Warmers) Kanye and Jay take the Lord name in vain all over this album For the talent they have this album too me gets a THUMBS WAY DOWN It's not like they had to use the name of the LORD in vain It's on purpose - Not a coincidence-they are doing this Before the Blue Print Garbage song Empire State of Mind- saying Jesus Can't Save YOU I cant remember Jay Z taking God's name in vain or speaking evil of God Ps. 139 20For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. 21Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? 22I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

Those numbers are really good

Those numbers are really good considering the first week was pretty much a digital release and most people still buy albums from the store, the second week numbers will be pretty huge seeing how more people will have access to the store copies. If they would of released the album on Tuesday instead of Friday i bet they would of sold 700-800k copies. Album is incredible though and what ya'll have to remember is Kanye and Jay share the same fanbase, most of their potential sales or fans overlap each other.
