Lil Wayne makes a huge comeback with his newest release, Tha Carter V. The LP is projected to debut No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart next week. Billboard reports that Tha Carter V forecasts to move over 450,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 4 in the U.S. — and has a shot at reaching a half-million units earned.
The album could generate over 400 million on-demand audio streams for its songs in its first week in the U.S., third-largest streaming week ever for an album this year, trailing only Drake’s Scorpion and Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys.
Tha Carter V was released on Sept. 28 via Young Money/Republic Records. Over the weekend, “Uproar” — a song off the LP — become a fan favorite and started a new social media challenge. The Swizz Beatz collaboration samples The Moog Machine’s “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” the same sample used in G. Dep’s “Special Delivery,” sparking fans to post clips onto social media of themselves Harlem Shaking, creating the #UproarChallenge.
