Today Monday (August 29), platinum-selling rapper Lil Wayne released his highly anticipated LP Tha Carter IV via iTunes. The disc will hit retails tomorrow Tuesday (August 30). The standard edition has a total of 15 tracks including the lead single “6 Foot 7 Foot” Ft. Cory Gunz, “John” Ft. Rick Ross, “How to Love,” and “She Will” Ft. Drake. The deluxe edition contains three additional songs. The disc has other collaborations from T-Pain, Bun B, Nas, Shyne, and Busta Rhymes. According to Billboard, the disc is projected to sell 700-850k in the first week. Below is how Billboard is reporting the story:

Lil Wayne just-released “Tha Carter IV” album could have the second-biggest sales week of the year, as industry forecasters suggest it may sell 700,000-850,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, Sept. 4.

“IV” will easily bow at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 next week — marking Wayne’s third No. 1.

If “Tha Carter IV” launches with at least 700,000, it will immediately mark the second-largest frame of any album this year, behind Lady Gaga‘s 1.11 million debut with “Born This Way.”
