Lil Wayne’s long-awaited album, ‘Tha Carter v’ which dropped last Friday, September 28, continues to make good impressions, raking in good numbers and showing that the rapper still has his place in the hip-hop hierarchy.
According to a report by Billboard, the album is looking to generate over 400 million on-demand audio streams in its first week on the U.S market. With that sum, Tha Carter V will set the record for the third-largest streaming week ever for an album, trailing only behind Drake’s Scorpion (745.9 million, and Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys (431.3 million), both of which were released earlier in 2018.
If the album as projected hits top of the charts, it will see Wayne return to his familiar position, where he left things with ‘Tha Carter IV’, which was released in 2011.
The Young Money Entertainment boss also reached No. 1 with 2010’s I Am Not A Human Being and 2008’s ‘Tha Carter III’. Lil Wayne’s last release, ‘I Am Not a Human Being II’, in 2013 also went up the charts debuting and peaking at No. 2.
