Billboard finally announced it tonight. It is now official: Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” has sold 964,000 in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan, easily enabling its No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart. It is his third No. 1 album following “Tha Carter III” and “I Am Not a Human Being.”
“Carter IV” earns the biggest sales week for a hip-hop album (or any set by a male artist) since his own “Carter III” bowed with 1.01 million on the June 28, 2008 chart.

Eminem is still the only rapper to sell a million in the first week twice.
