ChartWatch for September 22, 2010First up on the countdown is Linkin Park. They kind of rap sometimes well not anymore .but
they did have that Reanimation album from 2003.
Plus they did that album with Jay-Z. All that aside the California band drops their
fourth studio album, A Thousand Suns,
and takes the number one spot selling 253,685 copies.
If Im going to include a non Hip Hop group like Linkin Park
I have to include Trey Songz as well.
The R&B singers fourth album, Passion,
Pain & Pleasure, enters the charts at number two, selling 244,103
He is followed by Detroits own Eminem who drops down one
spot to number three this week. The
rappers seventh studio album, Recovery,
sells 89,182 copies this week bringing Ems total sales to 2,607,201.
Drakes Thank Me Later
drops from 14 to 15 and moves 19,315 copies.
The Canadian MC has sold 1,083,240 copies of his debut.
Rick Ross is at number 24 with his latest album, Teflon Don. The 13,967 copies sold last week brings his
total to 395,203.
B.o.B continues his slow sales burn with his debut album, The Adventures of Bobby Ray, selling
9,766 copies and moving him up one spot to 36.
Since its April release this album has stayed in the top 50 and has sold
a total of 381,545 copies. Black Milk's Album of the Year sells roughly 3,600 for the first week.Finally, my favorite
sell-out band, The Black Eyed Peas takes the number 45 spot with their chart
topping album The E.N.D. This week Will, Fergie, and the crew move
7,862 copies bringing the groups total sales to 2,765,497. You would think that contrived black face
controversy attempted by Will.I.Am would have got the group more sales. (Next time if youre going to don black face
and dress like a bootleg superhero do me a favor .dont block Nicki Minaj.)
Dropping This Week
I only have two albums for you this week but before we get
into that I have to show you some stuff on the site. Why? Im
from Texas, these articles are about Texas artists, and Im biased. Killa
are all featured in this months Texas Breeding ground. Ill be honest, I only recognize two of those
names, but its Texas so I think everyone should support. (No, Im not going to say which two look at
The first album up in dropping is by none other than Camron
and Vado who make up the duo the U.N.
The new album Gunz N Butta was supposed to come out in March but, as
you can see, it was pushed back to this week.
Camron is said to have a lot of recordings saved up so fans that have
been missing him these past couple of years should give this one a listen.
Finally, producer Ski Beats (the guy who produced for
Jay-Z, Camp Lo, and most recently Curren$y) releases 24 Hour Karate School. Ski is largely responsible for giving Jay-Zs
Reasonable Doubt its sound so fans
might want to give this one a listen.
Thats it for the
charts. See you next week.
