for May 12, 2010
was riding high last week with B.o.B finally helping the genre grab the
one spot. But that was last week.
This week B.o.B takes a significant (and lets
face it, expected in this sales climate) drop from number one to number
selling 35,009 copies of his debut The
Adventures of Bobby Ray. While that
is a pretty big fall B.o.B still manages to be the top Hip Hop artist
week. I guess that means this week Hip
Hop should celebrate the release of Gucci Mane right? Ok,
you might not want to celebrate the return
of Gucci (you hater you) but Hip Hop did have some success this week. Artists that dropped last week might not have
made the top ten, but they managed to make it into the top fifty.
first new artist to enter the charts this week is Trina whose latest
album, Amazin, sells 33,053 copies and takes
the thirteenth spot. She was in Dropping
last week and this week she comes closer than a lot of other hip Hop
breaking the top ten.
group was also in Dropping last week and sold a lot better than people
expected in this musical climate. Bone
Thugs-N-Harmony latest album, Uni-5: The Worlds Enemy, sold 28,271 copies and enters
the charts at number 16 spot this week.
This album actually had everyone from the whole group and maybe
stay together long enough to enjoy some success. (If
success is splitting the sales of 28,000
copies 5 ways. Maybe Bizzy and Krayzie
have the right idea when it comes to going solo.)
Black Eyed Peas drop from the fifteenth spot last week to number twenty
this week. The Hip-Pop group sold 22,986
copies of their latest album The E.N.D. I
wouldnt make to much of this drop in sales
because this album will never die. Maybe
the people looking for the hidden messages and Illuminati in Jay-Z and
songs should take a look at this album because it was obviously forged
some type of black magic. (And no Im not
a member of the Illuminati trying to throw you off of Jay-Zs trail. Im not.
Im really not. You believe me right?
Good. Now skip down to the next
paragraph. Pssst .Jay .They fell for
it. The Roc flies where the crow
lands. On to the next one. On
to the next one.)
is Ludacris whose latest album, Battle of
the Sexes, is still hanging on to the charts. This
week the Atlanta rapper sells 19,066
copies and stands at the 33rd spot.
have Tennessees own 8Ball & MJG and their new album Ten
Toe Down. The duo manages to sell 16,073 copies and takes the
number 36 spot.
we have Daddy Yankee. The international
artist was at the 33rd spot when he entered the charts but
dip in sales this week. His latest
offering, Daddy Yankee Mundial, sells
11,393 copies and takes the 49th position.
only one album that I believe should have been in the top 10 and that
Ten Toes Down. 8Ball & MJG
should have sold way more
than 16,000 copies on talent alone.
(Shout out to the 16,000 fans out there.
And to the other 50 or 60,000 fans that just downloaded the
disrespectful mutha*$&%*. But really its
8Ball & MJG. Cmon!)
