Lil Wayne's 'Tha Carter IV' Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard chart With 964,000 Copies


       It's 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."
      According to Billboard"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.
    "Carter IV" also marks 2011's second-biggest frame, behind Lady Gaga's 1.11 million debut with "Born This Way."and it   shifted 362,000 digital copies in its first week. That marks the second-largest digital sales week of all time for an album; again, behind "Born This Way," with 662,000 downloads.
       "Tha Carter IV" is off to a fast start courtesy of both a hot single "How to love" and an eve-of-release performance by Wayne on the highly rated MTV Video Music Awards telecast on aug.28
