ChartWatch for October 20, 2010
Its a slow week again and there arent a lot of albums
coming out in Hip Hop but things should start looking up in the next couple of
months. Albums are set to be released
from artist like Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Jim Jones, Dirty Money (well see if
this one really comes out), The Game, Lupe Fiasco, Three 6 Mafia, Chamillionaire,
Devin the Dude, N.E.R.D, Cali District Swag, Kid Cudi, Nelly, Cee-Lo Green,
Madlib, Skillz, and more.
Last week I posed a couple of questions. In reference to the Lil Wayne album being
release first as a digital copy and then one week later as a physical version I
said the quote below:
Do you think the actual copy will really boost sales? I mean, do that many people really still buy
Well apparently a lot of you out there do because this week
Wayne jumps up from 17 to number 1. He
sells 410% more than last week by moving 118,747 copies of I Am Not A Human Being. So
far the Young Money CEO has sold 250,831 copies of the EP.
We is followed by Eminem who drops down one spot to number
five but still manages to sell 49,907 copies of his latest album Recovery. That brings the albums totals to 2,833,913.
Waka Flocka Flame drops from 7 to 20 with his debut album Flockaveli. The 18,187 copies sold this week by the
Atlanta artist brings the albums total sales to 54,611.
John Legend and The Roots take a dip, from 19 to 26, and
sell 15,087 copies of their 70s inspired collaboration album Wake Up.
So far the G.O.O.D Music singer and Philadelphia Hip Hop staple have
sold 125,792 copies.
They are followed by Gucci Mane whose third studio album, The Appeal: Georgias Most Wanted takes
the 32 spot, selling 11,961 copies. So

Finally, Rick Ross moves up three spots to number 40 with
his fourth studio album Teflon Don. The 9,217 copies sold by the Miami rapper
this week brings his total to 434,118.
Dropping This Week
There are only one real album of interest coming out this
week (and I use the word interest real loosely). Lil Scrappy drops his third studio album Prince of the South 2 this week. I dont see this moving too many copies but
hey I could be wrong.
