The music industry website reports the Seattle duo is looking to have first weeks sales between 45,000 – 55,000 (50,000 – 60,000 SPS). The 1975’s I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It is competing with Adele’s 25 for the top spot. The British band’s latest LP is predicted to move between 90,000 – 100,000 albums (95,000 – 105,000 SPS).

This Unruly Mess I’ve Made included features from legendary Hip Hop representatives Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, Grandmaster Caz, and KRS-One as well as top modern talent YG, Chance The Rapper, and Ed Sheeran. But none of the album’s singles were able to reach the chart topping success of songs like “Can’t Hold Us” or “Thrift Shop” off their previous album The Heist.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’The Heist sold 78,000 copies in its first week. The 2012 collection went on to sell over 1.4 million copies. It also won the Grammy for Best Rap Album in 2014.

  • 50k first week is good for indies.

    So crazy these numbers Adele is still doing tho

  • DrakeDoesn’tWrite

    All these old niggas just giving it away.

  • Markus

    If they have some pop records on there,they’ll be alright. They must have scared their fan base with learning there were MCs on the album.

    • Havent heard anything but the main single Downtown and that was pretty poppy to me. Even heard that shit in Asia a few times when I was there.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      scared is you , you molesting race weezil – Hide coward ! , Hide !

      • Markus

        I hide things in your mother’s mouth but you don’t know what I’m talking about.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        look atcha – just as empty and worthless as your mom taught ya

      • Markus

        Want to know what your mother taught me,Gary?

  • I actually think that “Buckshot” joint they made is pretty decent. The other stuff? Nah. If making jokes mixed in with off brand politics is how they’re going to go, they’re screwed. The problem with Macklemore is that he blew up too big. Plus that Iggy sh*t hurt him.

    • IDNTGIVAFUCKBOUTNOTHING

      You seeem like the Type of Nigga to listen to Macklemore. Change your Avi nigga your Black card has been revoked.

      • And you seem like the type of n*gga that will make a judgment about something without even listening to it. Listening before you judge isn’t selling out. Over here we call that INTELLIGENCE. You’re looking like a prime candidate for racial profiling. Dummy! 😂😂😂

      • IDNTGIVAFUCKBOUTNOTHING

        Intelligence? Macklemore is the Splinter Cell of Hip-Hop. His music goes against everything that Hip-Hop artists have been working towards. No self respecting Black Man would ride in their car and listen to Macklemore. I bet you watched the Oscars front to Back too and loved it. Fuckin Sellout I bet you wont listen to that shit around me.

      • You’re stupid as f*ck dude. Accept it and move on. 😂😂😂

    • TheAfroRican

      Yeah, that joint sounded like a track KRS-One would rhyme on it. Not bad at all.

  • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

    Why does he try to look like Roger though ? Bad enough his face looks like him. The hair he has control over.

    • disqus_Qz4GEHNAYR

      Lieutenant Dan I got you some ice cream!

  • TheAfroRican

    Still good numbers as an indie group.
