Young Money's sales for "Rise Of An Empire" are looking pretty similar to projections.
Despite having big tracks like "Lookin' Ass" and "Trophies" attached to it, Young Money's Rise Of An Empire, much like the Rich Gang compilation before it, suffered from a lack of promotion.
Nevertheless, the project has gone on to sell 31,047 copies in its first week, proving that the label still has enough star power behind it to sell records without a huge push behind them.
Still, the numbers pale in comparison to the first week sales of the labels biggest solo artists, suggesting that a larger involvement from those rappers could've boosted the project's sales. The numbers are also on the lower side of the initial projections, which had it coming in at 30-40k units sold.
The lead single from the project, "Senile" has a video dropping very soon. You can check out some behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot here.
