Lil Wayne: Tha Carter IV Leaked Online, “She Will” Debuts On Hot 100, Plus Cortez Bryant & Birdman Speak On TC4
Lil Wayne‘s latest single “She Will” Ft. Drake has debuted at #3 on Billboard‘s Hot 100. The track is off Weezy’s upcoming LP Tha Carter IV. This is Weezy’s highest-ever opening rank on the chart. In other Weezy news, just like most major Hip-Hop albums, Tha Carter IV leaked online.
Lil Wayne’s manager, Cortez Bryant, spoke to Rolling Stone on August 24th, and was feeling very confident that Weezy’s new album wouldn’t leak. “I think we’re lucky this time. We held it until the last moment we could, and we didn’t send any songs or beats by e-mail – we used iChat, or a person had to get on a plane to share music…I’m knocking on wood before I get off the phone with you and it’s all over the Internet.”
Unfortunately, they weren’t too lucky because the album leaked hours after Bryant got off the phone with Rolling Stone.
Birdman speaks on Tha Carter 4
“This is one of the biggest releases of the year, and we wanted to make sure that everybody got to play their part at the same time.”
Birdman on wanting to sell a million-plus in the first week and being okay with leaks.
“The goal is to sell a million-plus copies,” he explains. Birdman says he’s actually okay with leaks, to a point. “I can deal with it for short period of time. It’s when you have a leak out for a long time that it’s crazy.”
Tha Carter IV will go on sale digitally on iTunes at midnight on August 29th.
