AllHiphop ChartWatch: Luda’s Got That No. 1 Spot!

ChartWatch for March 17, 2010

 

“I’m on the rise, so

many people despise me

Got party ammunition for those tryin to surprise me

It’s a celebration and everyone should invite me”

                                    –

Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges

 

I don’t

know if he is a despised as he likes to believe because a lot a fans showed up

to support him this week.  Ludacris released

Battle of the Sexes last week and it

has moved 136,000 copies since its debut. 

The Atlanta MC grabs the number one spot this week which is pretty big

for a rapper in today’s sales climate.

He is

followed, at number two, by the Gorillaz (they have a rapper so I’m including

them), the animated hip/pop/rap group and their latest disc Plastic Beach.  The group sells 110,000 copies for the sales

week.

Sade takes

another dip, dropping from 2 to 6 and selling 55,000 copies of her latest album,

Soldier of Love

The Black

Eyed Peas also drop a spot but continue to sell more copies of their monster

album The E.N.D.  This week the group moves another 42,000

copies. 

Moving

beyond the top ten we find Lil Wayne and his rock themed album Rebirth

This week the New Orleans MC moves another 28,000 copies.  Plus with Gucci Mane and Jay-Z falling out of

the top 50 the remaining album is from Wayne’s label Young Money.  We Are

Young Money sells 15,000 copies and takes the 33rd spot.

           

There aren’t

too many albums dropping this week so we’ll be back next time with more from

the charts.
