AllHipHop ChartWatch for December 16, 2009 Ive
spent the last few weeks pointing out the sales of reality TV star Susan
Boyle which has raise a lot of questions amongst readers. Mainly,
Who the f— is Susan Boyle? Well, Ill tell you. Shes
a British, reality show star. Now British music artist + Reality
TV should equal your album going double wood here in the states but
for some reason this lady is selling more albums then they can keep
on the shelves. I know shes not Hip Hop but Boyle managed to
sell another 580,000 copies of her album I Dreamed
A Dream pushing her sales well over the million mark.
gave that little intro on Boyle because 1) I find it slightly interesting
and 2) the closest thing to Hip Hop in the Top 10 is Chris Brown.
He aint Hip Hop either but at least he has a rapper or two on the
album. The R&B singer took time off of community service to
sell 102,000 copies of his latest album, Graffiti. Flip over
to rumors if you want to see about Chris Twitter tirade.
I dont want to make it seem as though this was a bad week for Hip
Hop. We actually have a few artists from last columns
Dropping this Week make it into this weeks top fifty.
Lets continue on to find out who made it.
up is an MC out of the south. Although many critics question
his musical ability he continues to sell and please his fan base.

Radric Davis. The Atlanta rappers major label album debuts
at the number 11 spot and places him as the top selling rapper for this
next album has been on the charts since June and is still pushing big
numbers. I dont know how and I dont know why but this group is
getting at least 50,000 people to buy their album each week. The
Black Eyed Peas move up two spots, from 22 to 20, and sell another 64,000
copies of their album, The E.N.D.
