Yeaaaah The-Dream week continues as the album of the year, thus far - Love Vs Money, has predicted first week sales of 125-150k according to Hits Daily Double

In comparison, Dream's 2007 debut album Love/Hate moved 59,000 copies in its first week at retail and has been certified Gold. I hope he receives his due success this time around. Love/Hate wasn't even nominated for a Grammy despite being considered by many R&B fans as the album of 2007 and spawning four hit singles.

J.Holiday's Round 2 is looking at somewhere around 60-65k without a Dream penned smash, while Chris Cornell and Timbaland's critically bashed Scream is looking at a miserable 20-25k. I guess that's what happens when you get so caught up in the sonic complexities of music and forget to make great 'simple' songs.
