According to Hits Daily Double, Nelly is currently on pace to sell 12-15k copies of his latest effort.
This will be an all time low for the southern rapper. His previous effort, 5.0., even managed to sell 63,000 copies in it’s first week. To date, Nellyville is Nelly‘s most commercially successful album. The project sold 714,000 copies in it’s first week, and went on to nearly go diamond with 7,000,000 copies sold.
