Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign “Vultures” First Week Sales Projections

Must Read

Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign released their collaborative album Vultures Vol. 1, the first of a planned trilogy this past weekend. Despite mixed reviews from critics and fans, the album is projected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, according to HDD. 

However, the sales numbers are far from impressive, as the album is estimated to sell around 140K units in its first week. A huge decline from the 307K units that West’s previous solo album, Donda, sold in its opening week in 2021.

The low sales can be partly attributed to the album’s chaotic and delayed rollout, which has become a trademark of West’s recent releases. The album was initially announced in late 2023, but it was pushed back several times due to various issues, including sample clearances.

The album finally arrived on Saturday (February 10) a day later than the last announced date. The album was also not available on some streaming platforms until hours after its release.

Vultures Vol. 1 spans 16 tracks and features a diverse range of guest appearances, including Freddie Gibbs, North West, Playboi Carti, Rich The Kid, Travis Scott, James Blake, and more. The album explores various themes, such as fame, religion, relationships, and politics, over eclectic and experimental production. Some of the standout tracks include Carnival, Paid, Back to Me, and Talking.

Vultures Vol. 2 and 3, are expected to drop later this year.
