Five years in the making, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V did not disappoint fans, nor did it disappoint Wayne’s wallet or Universal Music Group, executives.
Per HITS Daily Double, the entirety of their top 10 highest earning songs for the charting week ending October 3, 2018, were selections off Tha Carter V, with the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Mona Lisa” alone taking in a gross of $335,141.
In fact, the three highest-earning tracks for Wayne (“Mona Lisa,” “Don’t Cry,” and “Let It Fly”) all had features, which likely brought in stray listeners who may not have been checking for Wayne’s latest full-length, and helped boost streaming numbers. Even Wayne’s lowest-earning track, “Dope New Gospel,” was still the 41st highest-grossing song this past week, taking in $74,438.
Each of the albums 23 tracks earned a spot in the top 50 highest-earning songs of the week, with the entire album netting a gross total of $3,338,722. Or, you know, chump change. Other major recent first-week totals include Eminem, whose Kamikaze album generated $1.8 million with its 13 tracks, which is almost as impressive as the time Drake’s “In My Feelings” made over half a million dollars in one week.
Again, just petty cash, really.
Rihanna & Hassan Jameel: Why She’s Ready To Say Yes If He Proposes To Her
Rihanna, 31, and Hassan Jameel, 30, were recently spotted enjoying a romantic dinner at Bar & Books cocktail lounge in New York City, and sources tell HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that she’s “ready and willing” to accept a proposal if Hassan wants to take the next step in their relationship.
“Rihanna’s very much in love with Hassan, she’s found her Prince Charming,” our source told us.
“They’ve been seeing each other for more than two years now, and she seems very happy. If he were to pop the question tomorrow, she’d say yes. She’s crazy for him.
They spend a lot more time together than people realize. He’s just very discreet. He avoids attention like the plague, and that’s one of the things that really sealed the deal for Rihanna.”

Nicki Minaj Splits With Longtime Managers Cortez Bryant & Gee Roberson : SOURCES
Nicki Minaj has parted ways with longtime managers Cortez Bryant and Gee Roberson of the Blueprint Group and Maverick Management, sources confirm to Billboard.
The source says that the split was recent and “amicable.” Minaj does not yet have a new management team.
The 36-year-old hip-hop superstar released her fourth studio album, Queen, last year, and became the first female artist with 100 career entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart last November. However, an announced 2018 co-headlining tour with Future was postponed, with several North American dates still yet to be rescheduled.
Minaj also earned headlines last year for an altercation with Cardi B during New York Fashion Week and the controversial decision to collaborate with rapper 6ix9ine on the single “Fefe.”
Roberson and Bryant, co-CEOs of the Blueprint Group, have repped Minaj through the majority of her career, and have managed Lil Wayne, G-Eazy and Rich The Kid, among others. The Atlanta-based management group partnered with Maverick when the conglomerate was formed in 2014.
On Sunday night, Minaj appeared as a surprise guest during Ariana Grande’s headlining set at Coachella, but suffered sound issues during the performance. Minaj also appeared alongside G-Eazy as a guest on Chris Brown’s new single “Wobble Up,” released earlier today.
Reps for Minaj and Blueprint did not respond to request for comment.
