Game discusses "The R.E.D. Album" sales

The R.E.D. Album is a milestone in Game's career. The album marks the first time Game did not mention 50 Cent. On his debut album, Game was a member of G-Unit. Game has unleashed several disses towards 50 Cent and his crew on his past two albums.

But, on The R.E.D. Album, Game was excited to be back in the studio with Dr. Dre. Because of this, and him moving on, Game said his future albums would contain no mentions of 50 Cent. Now focusing on the positive, the critical reception to Game's latest album has been wonderful.

The first-week sales of The R.E.D. Album were also impressive, as Game debuted on top of the charts. The last time Game had an album debut at number one, he was with 50 Cent and Dr. Dre. It was a nice start for Game, debutin on the top of the charts, but it was short-lived. A week later, Lil Wayne released Tha Carter IV and took over the charts.

After being out for three weeks, Game's album has sold a little over 150,000 copies. Despite all the media attention, the album is the lowest-selling of his career. Game is unaffected by this, as he has stated his debut album sold five million copies and his last two albums were platinum successes. On his latest album, Game said he recorded for the fans and not for the sales.
