Since I entered the music industry world in 2005, I have seen the sales figures plummet. Each Sound Scan report came in with the same dissapointing results. Honestly, I never thought I would see 1 million records sold in a week again. If Kayne didn't do it last year with his ridiculous contest with 50 Cent, I didn't think anyone would. Then here comes Lil Wayne to drop the biggest number since 2005. Will this save recorded music? Doubtful. But this shows that the big numbers are still reachable if you make a good record and market it properly.
