Contrary to many predictions, Jay-Z’s « American Gangster » nearly goes gold in its chart-topping first week.
While many perceived Chris Brown’s « Exclusive » as Jay-Z‘s biggest chart competition for « American Gangster », there was no surprise.
Jay-Z debuted at #1 on this week’s Soundscan.
Hova sold 424,959 copies of what some people describes as an album without flavor.
Jay-Z was the only rapper occupying the first nine slots of the charts this week.
