LMAO @2:30 NO! iTunes only allows for one download per computer. This is obviously number fudging, the same thing Mrs. Camel did wit 4lop.

This is how ALL albums would sell if it werent for illegal downloads. Rihanna's album, Loud, was the most illegally downloaded album of last year. Im sure she couldve cracked 500k if it wasnt for that.

Ravishing Bookworm said...

Putting out the digital copy before the physical was a smart move.

Anonymous said...

Was 500K in the states alone or worldwide?

That's a big difference as well?

It want sell half of that when it comes out on the 12th

*SMOKE&MIRRIORS* We are a country of bandwagoners and if they can make you think everyone else is buying this hot garbage(by inflating sale numbers) then chances are you're going to buy it as well (thus jumping on the bandwagon) but they wont get a dime of my 9-5 salary since they like to brag so much about their millions.

Cosign 2:36 and dont forget they soldOUT their community as well.

The "kingdom" will collapse if and when they attempt to go on tour. Next thing you know, they'll come up with some lie about creative differences. Watch and see.

Who has actually purchased the album and listened to the lyrics in each song?

Those are the people that I want to talk to.

I've never been a fan of Jay-Z's music. Although he does have skills, I've never purchased a single Jay-Z album. I've always been a fan of Kanye's music though.

I was less than impressed with the first single released, H.A.M.. Although I knew that something was up with that acronym choice, I had absolutely no intentions on buying this CD. I'm glad that I did. I was pleasantly surprised.

On another note, it's a damn shame when you have to sneak up on slaves to free them for fear that they will turn on you for freeing them instead of turning on their master.

I wish this toliet fuckery would end already. Who are going to buy this hot mess besides Beyonce, Tina, Kelly, Jay, Kayne, abd the label please tell me.

Samuel L. Blackson said...

I dont buy music to "listen" to lyrics. I dont buy music period.I download music so I can drown out the overbearing realization that I wont make it to the top 5 and one of these azzhats will.

Anonymous said...

My name is not Beyonce, Tina, Kelly, Jay, or "Kayne" and I darn sure don't work for the label, but I bought it. 5500 other people bought the deluxe version (#1 album on iTunes) and 1300 bought the regular version (#3 album on iTunes) on iTunes for sure and those numbers come from the people that chose to post a review.
So if they're paying people to make up these numbers, then they need to hurry up and send me my reimbursement check.

Anonymous said...

That's the problem....people don't listen to lyrics, but have plenty of complaints about music.

Congrats to 4:39 for paying for Kayzee's next European trip. Sure won't be me!

@ 4:29--- the ppl purchasing this "braggery" will be the drones that don't mind lining the pockets of these two greedy punks. I mean, they don't even try to hide their materialism and worship of the (formerly) almighty dollar. What kind of level-headed person fashions himself as some king of God or ruler anyway? So what are we? His servants?
To hell with that. Us grown folks know better.

YES I bought the album although not one song has grew on me! Jay's songs usually grow on me quick, yall cant deny his wordplay is sick. I think his best work is probably behind him (In My Lifetime, Vol. 2-Hard Knock Life, The Dynasty: Roc La Familia, The Blueprint, and The Black Album are my favs!) Never been a fan of Kanye tho.

@ 5:25 - After listening to the album and aside from the materialistic, egotistical nonsense, did you notice any messages?

My Lift Off Review:

Bey is actually giving me MJB tease with this.. Lol, seems Jayz only likes to work with either Beyonce or MJB these days. Like if it wasnt Bey, it would have been MJB lol. Track is pretty good, nothing amazing even with the Queen on it, I like the Beat tho.

LEFT OFF sounds like a reject from 4 but still pretty good nontheless. lol 3.8/5

Bey + The Production SAVED the hell out of this Record. Kanye & Jayz did HORRIBLE & Held back like they WANTED Bey to shine. Never have seen Rihanna Steal the Entire Track like the Queen Bey did with 'lift off'.

JayHova's Witness (CLIT FLEA) said...

I think Bey's 4 could have EASILY Debuted Huge also with No Leaks & BETTER EXECUTION but It was & still is poorly managed. But still doing good given the circumstances. Cuz 4 is STILL Better than any Kanye & Jayz Album. Left Off sounds like a reject from 4 but still pretty good nontheless. lol

Beyonce is the best artist of this generation BY FAR point blank and stay mad haters, it's the truth. Her "4" album is the best album of her career, it's critical acclaim and it's worth her sweat & tears. Beyonce is in a lane all her own!, by herself and no one out can catch her!! That bar she raise the haters are going to stay mad and the lovers are going to continue to love. "4" is the truth. Grammy's 2012 will no doubt mark history for Beyonce again. Beyonce & (that Overrated) Adele will RULE the grammy's!! Beyonce will go down in the history books as a living musical legend of her generation.

YALL HATTAS NEED TO STOP HATTIN!!

4 IS AN EPIC MASTERPIECE COMING FROM AN EPIC ARTIST WITH AN EPIC VOICE!!

SAY ALL THE DELUSIONAL SHIT YOU WANT BUT SHES THE TRUTH

GREATEST ARTIST OF ALL TIME!!

@5:40 its the same way Adele shits on hov's wife yet Bee gets all the undeserved press.

OT: I do not believe these numbers at all. I've done some street team work in the past and I can say there was ZERO buzz for this LP.

Sorry Jay the streetz were NOT watching!

JayHova's Witness (CLIT FLEA) said...

Bey isn't the type to hop on rap hooks. Her voice is too big. I think "Lift Off" works, because the music is just as extravagant as her voice. In the documentary, Kanye said he wanted a Chaka Khan style chorus. Bey was the perfect choice.

I beg to Differ, this is actually 100% FALSE

Beyonce can & often Does infact Implement SOUL & A Lot of the time, (& im talking ARETHA Soul) Beyonce can & will TAKE YOU TO CHURCH when she wants to!!

NO JOKE!,

No she doesnt have the Most soul, Obviously but she DOES have it & actually MORE than that of Alicia Keys & Mariah Carey!!!!

Her very TONE is soulful, You can hear it in her Low Range/Vibrato, her G#5s, & even her HEAD VOICE of all places (RARE!!)

Im not saying that shes some CHURCH Singer (I would actually prefer she not be) But her voice is THE PERFECT BLEND, Not too Sharp, Too Heavy, Too Soft, Just PERFECT. She does have a country southern Sharp Twag to her voice but that is all balanced out by a Sultry, Husky, Sweet, Beautiful tone.

Heres just an Example but DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH:

I actually like the album. I don't think that it will do well on the radio because its not as commercial as the other rap thats out. The production is great and the lyrics and not just the usual braggadocios crap that they have been known for as of late. It tells a story of where they've been, what they have been though and where they are now. In between they remind us of the struggle that the black community is going through and how little successful black people there are in powerful positions. New Day, Welcome to the Jungle, Murder to Excellence, and Made in America are all really good songs why they picked Otis and HAM as singles is a mystery to me.

If Obama talked that tough(real), I might have more respect for him.

Anonymous said...

@ 8:40 PM
I agree, Obama says way too much of NOTHING, and had too many empty threats and zero assertiveness, he's always trying to be somebody's friend/peace-maker when he clearly sees Republicans/Congress/tea party are out to destroy him,
since it's so obvious they're out to ruin him, he mine-as-well start speaking his mind and talking sh*t like they do, why not, what does he have to lose, he's not popular anymore for his politics so why not become popular for being REAL and saying the truth?

he already lost me by being BFF with the fake carter-knowles and stopping banks from giving students private loans really screwed me in my last semester, so for me Obama is a wash, but if e stops playing mister nice guy I might care again.

Camel Z can fudge the numbers all he wants to increase his played out hype so he gain public interest, but fudged numbers aren't going to save him from LiveNation when they see they made a bad deal with his old no stage presence having ass.

He can't keep using that LiveNation $150 million to buy his own sh*t and his fake wife's whack sh*t,
and who knows how long Rihanna is going to be able to keep spitting out albums and tours before she says F*ck JZ.

@5:27

I just purchased a big tub of a variety of seeds. I am learning gardening tips and food preservation. I've been saving rain water and using a water purifier and storing the water in empty bottles we use. I'm also looking to buy a couple of drums so I can fill them up with gas. I would really love to acquire some solar-powered generators but the only way I'll get it is to go into debt via a credit card and....that's not happening.

OT: No comment.

You people do realize it's just music right? I think people expect to much from entertainers,if they don't do nothing for you,then find someone else who does,it's not that serious.

i actually got the album tuesday morning off iTunes and I really wasnt expecting it to be to good. It actually is worth the money unlike the majority of rap out these days. I'm no stan but I give credit to Kanye he makes great music, you can say what you want about them being this and that (hell i think they both on some demonic shit from time to time) but the Album is actually dope. The song Murder to Excellence is by far the best rap song of the year imo, glad to hear them take it back to a small element of black pride.
