AllHipHop Chartwatch: Black Eyed Peas Rule, One of Pac’s Outlawz Returns

     

Some

of you guys must have hit Best Buy over the weekend because we have

a couple of artists from the “dropping this week” section last week make it

on the charts in a major way this week.  I’m not saying we at AllHipHop.com had anything

to do with that, I’m just saying it’s a nice coincidence.

      I

know I might have made fun of them last week (along with Flo Rida and

anyone else who makes Hip Pop) but the Black Eyed Peas enters this week’s

chart at number one.  Their new studio album The E.N.D knocks

off the Dave Matthews Band whose album, Big Whiskey and the

GrooGrux King,falls to number two.

      Eminem

continues his chart topping sales with Relapse and also earns Em another platinum plate. His raps about drugs, violence, and Mariah Carey make me feel like its 2002 again. Incidentally, Mariah Carey has a “diss record” against Shady on her new album. It’s like she is just asking for abuse. Somebody warn her and Nick Cannon. Chicken Foot follows Eminem at number four with their self titled debut.

      Now

ya’ll know how I feel about Lady Gaga.  Well apparently a bunch

of people don’t feel the same as I do because her album, The Fame,

continues to sell and comes in on the chart this week at number five. 

That’s followed by Disney’s Hanna Montana: The Movie soundtrack.

      Green

Day falls a few positions with their album, 21st Century

Breakdown holding at number seven.

      I

don’t know what bachata music is so if anyone does please school me

on it.  Aventura, a group from the Bronx, does bachata and apparently

they do it well because they enter the charts this week at number eight

with their 8th studio album The Last.

      A few years a R&B group by the name of Pretty Ricky started making noise and climbing the charts. As they got popular I thought…Who the hell is Pretty Ricky? Then came the devastating news that Pleasure P was leaving the group. This time I thought…Who the hell is Pleasure P? Well apparently Pleasure P is rising to the top doing all the things to your girl that you won’t do. His album,

The Introduction of Marcus Cooper, debuts this week at number nine

on the strength of the single Boyfriend #2.

      Finally,

Dante Terrell Smith a.k.a Mos Def enters the chart this week at number

10 with his album The Ecstatic.  He was on the “Dropping

this Week” section along with The Black Eyed Peas last week. 

Let’s see who might make it on the charts for next week. 

DROPPING THIS WEEK

    

Tupac’s

birthday just passed and a former member of the group he founded over

a decade ago releases a new album.  Former member of The Outlawz,

Hussein Fatal, releases his fourth studio album, Born Legendary.

      Bay

Area rapper The Jacka drops his third album Tear Gas.  It’s

been a minute since he released a studio album and now he returns in

full force with an album featuring Freeway, Devin the Dude, Mistah F.A.B,

Paul Wall, and others.

      Finally,

it looks like the members of Three Six Mafia are each putting out solo

albums.  Juicy J comes out with his second solo album Hustle

Til I Die. Read the AllHipHop interview right here!
