(AllHipHop News) Even a six-year break did not stop Jadakiss’ fan base from supporting his new LP Top 5 Dead or Alive. The album landed at #4 on the Billboard 200, giving The Lox member his fourth Top 5 placement on the album chart.
Top 5 Dead Or Alive pushed 66,000 equivalent album units (60,000 pure album sales). 2001’s Kiss Tha Game Goodbye reached #5 with 204,000 albums sold first week, 2004’s Kiss of Death reached #1 with 246,000 albums sold first week, and 2009’s The Last Kiss reached #3 with 134,000 albums sold the first week.
However, nothing could stop Adele from hitting #1 this week. The British songstress’ latest album 25 broke several records by pushing 3.48 million equivalent album units (3.38 million pure album sales) in its initial week. No album had ever sold more than 3 million copies in one week before 25.
Jada’s return as a solo artist was assisted with numerous guest features. Top 5 Dead or Alive included appearances by Future, Jeezy, Lil Wayne, Nas, Styles P, Puff Daddy, Sheek Louch, Swizz Beatz, Wiz Khalifa, and others.
