183,000 People Purchased “Lollipop” Last Week

For all his best rapper alive talk, Dwayne has never had a solo No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100. That all changed this week when, propelled by 183,000 downloads, “Lollipop” shot to No. 1 on the chart.

Wow, that song is not that good people. It boggles the mind that 183,000 people (not to mention however many people had copped it before last week) would pay money for that track. Especially when all you have to do is type this into Google.

But any way you slice it, this is a pretty good indication that Tha Carter III is going to be a commercial monster if it ever hits stores. I think Universal may have fucked up a little by pushing it to June though. With the buzz this kid has, you could seriously announce the shit was hitting stores next week and I think he’d still do 500K on GP.

    Lollipop song, my guilty pleasure..I wanna hate it. *sighs *

    ***I’ll hate it enough for both of us, lol…for real, though, I heard that song all the way thru for the first time a couple of weeks ago, because my nieces (12 and 16 yo) were in the car, and they started whining and shit when i turned it down, so I had to resume it at full volume…anyway, my first thought when I heard that joint all the way thru was, “maaaaaaaaan, a lot of them niggas on nah be liking some faggy ass music”…no shots fired, and n/h for associating that joint with nah in general…

    I think Universal may have fucked up a little by pushing it to June though Are you really surprised at this? You know major labels never get it right. I’ll be happy if Wayne goes platinum as long as the album is great. If it’s an album full of “Lollipop” type singles, it doesn’t deserve to go gold.

  20. KilluminattI7 Says:

    loathe or love it

    the kid has a strong fanbase/ following

    and sumthing tells me he is gonna

    do ATRONOMICAL numbers

  71. SilkCityP Says:

    That was last week!! LMAO! But on Monday WKYS 93.9 in DC cut Lollipop off less than a minute into the song for the Nas exclusive “Be A Nigga Too”. They played the Nas track back to back to back! I told cats Lil Wayne is no movement, in another 2 years… he won’t even have a career anymore! Mark My Words on that! He’s already been exposed worse than any other rapper in history! Real Music & Real Shit is coming back! The world changes every 10-20 years. His music is just a reflection of George Bush being in office! “Think About It”

  72. famz Says:

    i dont even know y im goin back n forth with cats who aint had any physical contact with members of the opposite sex since kindergarten when they had to hold hands playing rin around the rosey

    but i will for entertainment purposes

    1)y the fuk u riding for ya mans so hard twain?? he grown aint he?? fall the fuk back u coming across type gay defending ya boys honor

    2) gettin girls loose = in general a broad enjoying herself while partying. basically yal saying he gay and anybody gay who enjoys the song is bullshyt. but u married so im sure ur club days r long over. stay in the basement with ya headphones on bumpin the newest murs.

    3)the fuk does me being a lurker have anything to do with anything? i been coming to this site for 2 years. i just never bother commenting and conversating with u lame muhfuggas.(not all yal lame). i come to this site for leaked music and news. fuk the bullshyt. im just passing the time.

  73. Trey Stone Says:

    the song’s nice (better than any other big Top 40 pop/rap that comes to mind right now,) but it seemed to me like Universal may’ve pushed it back cuz they were afraid that it’d be a “Low”-type thing where a bunch of people buy it off iTunes but no one gives a shit about the album. obviously Wayne’ll do a lot more than Flo Rida numbers, but i’m not so sure i see dude doing Kanye numbers just off the single.

    i’m surprised it went to #1 though. i kinda expected it to fall off after being hot at first. people’re dissing it for being dumb club-rap or whatever but it’s a little more out-there than your usual

  74. Ian Says:

    I bought the song, ever after I had the free download, because this dude is a monster, the sheer volume of work that dude has released for FREE since Tha Carter III. I almost feel obligated to cop his shit, garbage or not, although i do think that lollipop is a fly record, nonetheless, congrats to weezy f on his first #1 record. Homey is probably syrupped to death celebrating haha.

  75. game over Says:

    LOL @ Silk P….any rapper who can bounce back from a photo of him kissing his mentor and get MORE popular ain’t going nowhere in two years.

    Wayne’s been rapping since he was 11, he ain’t gonna stop rapping till he’s under the ground. Southern rappers pretty much sell their same numbers for their entire career. Up until Th Fix, Scarface put up the same numbers every time. Until his last album, Luda was putting up the same numbers. Ditto for TI. Generally speaking, Southern fans are way more loyal than other regions. Like, where did all of Spice 1’s fans go? LOL.

    and as for this…

    “never understood why labels have such a gap between the initial single and the release date, yet it happens time and time again. can anyone explain this? are they waiting incase the single flops?”

    ^ ^ labels are retarded.

  76. brad Says:

    I love how Wayne’s new song is so popular and it has barely any lyrics on it, it’s like a bunch of little choruses he repeats over and over again. Plus the music in this beat is from the TV show Deal or No Deal, listen to the show when they try to get all dramatic, it is the same shit. hahaha. I personally do not like Wayne at all, but this record is a stroke of genius. If I hear it once I sing it for weeks.

  77. Ghost of Chad Butler Says:

    damn that’s a hater ass comment SK. Damn Weezy fucked your girl or somethin? I never really seen you do much commentary. But in this case, not only did you say dude didn’t deserve #1, but you also did your part to make sure anybody thinking about buying his shit will go to Google and get it free. You a hoe. And I ain’t even a Wayne fan. Ol tellin ass nigga.

  78. CASTRO RANX Says:

    LIL WAYNE IS BURNIN UP THE SCENE WITH HIS RHYMES OF LATELY….I STRONGLY FEEL THAT HE CAN ATTRIBUTE ALL HIS OUT OF THE BOX TYPE LYRICS TO ALL THE COCAINE HE BEEN SHOVIN UP HIS NOSE AND DRINKIN ALL THAT CODINE/PROMETHESINE….HE’S GONNA CRASH HARD, WHEN HE GETS A CREATIVE BLOCK! BUT FOR NOW, DUDE KILLIN IT.
