After earning a near record breaking debut with “Graduation,” Kanye West’s latest album “808s & Heartbreak” was released with high expectations just in time for ‘Black Friday’. According to Billboard, West may be heartbroken when the numbers come in this week. Sources says Kanye West’s “808s & Heartbreak” will sell in the range of 425,000 – 450,000 copies, significantly lower than the expected 700,000 – 975,000 units projected in November. West’s album was not the only album to receive less than stellar sales over the holiday. According to several retail outlets, music sales were down 10% to 30%. Official numbers will be announced later today.
