Can You Believe It?

This guy SoundScanned over ONE MILLION copies the first week out - more than any artist has managed to do in three years ... on top of being one of only a dozen artists to debut like that in the history of recorded music.

I know the CD is supposed to be dead and all but regardless of whether you like Lil Wayne or not the guy sold 900,00 plus of physical product and slightly under 100,00 were digital sales. This enormous sales number speaks volume about the popularity of the artist rather than a freakish boom for the good old fashioned CD but I think in this day and dying age of the music industry, a million sold is a mountain moved.

And in case you wanted to know what exactly the lyrics behind the hit song "Lollipop" from his new record - check some of my favorite lines.

Uh huh I say he so sweet
Make her wanna lick the wrapper
So I let her lick the rapper...

Shawty wanna thug, thug, thug (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Bottles in the club, club, club (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Shawty wanna hump (yeah)You know I'd like to touch (yeah)
Your lovely lady lumps, lumps, lumps (she wanna lick the wrapper)...

Man, she ain't never had a love like mine
But man, I ain't never seen an ass like hers
That pussy in my mouth had me lost for words
I told her back it up like "urp, Urp"
Made that ass jump like "Jerk, Jerk"...

I get on top
She drop it like it's hot (yeah)
And when I'm at the bottom
She Hillary Rodum...

If there was any question if sex and crazy sells, well I guess the answer would be yes. What I wonder is how many kids are running around singing this painfully catchy song and thinking it is about an actual candy product. So glad I am not a parent....

  1. Someone tried to tell me that this dude was like the new ODB. So I checked it out. Come on. R. Kelly is a better ODB replacement for sure. Well, at least I wasn't one in a million.
