US Charts Review

With no new releases, some of our urban acts find a way to climb back up the charts, while the rest continue to fall. Though the urban market doesn’t hold the #1 spot anymore, we still remain relevant in the top three. Lady Gaga and Young Money skip a few spots back to the top but how does everyone else do? You already know what time it is, let’s march to the charts.

Ludacris didn’t pull a second week at #1, but he gets the best thing. Coming in at #3, Luda sells 57,632 for “Battle of the Sexes.” Lady Gaga fell out of the top five last week, but now she returns barely making the cut off. In at #5 Gaga’s sells 47,853 for “The Fame.” Following is Sade with “Solider of Love,” racking in 40,231 at #6. Black Eyed Peas move up two into #7 for “The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies),” selling 39,269 more units for the album.

Virtual band geeks Gorillaz fall from their debut #2 position and return for their second week at #9, selling 36,116 for “Plastic Beach.” Justin Bieber sits at #10 with 33,419 sold for “My World.” Ke$ha moves up one into #12 for “Animal,” selling 28,674. Gaga’s “The Fame Monster” moves out of last week’s #21 position into #14 with 27,043 sold. Lil’ Wayne may drop the world one people’s head, but he also “drops” six slots into #17, selling 24,688 for “Rebirth.” Rihanna does the same but only two spots into #19 with 21,140 sold for “Rated R.”

Trey Songz remains in the #23 spot for “Ready,” selling 18,294 more records. Young Money transitions from #33 to #25 with 16,644 for “We Are Young Money.” Alicia Keys sells 16,446 and lands in #26 for “The Element of Freedom.” Jaheim drops four more spots into #36 for “Another Round” and sells 13,049. However Mary J. Blige drops eight slots into #37, managing to push 12,706 for “Stronger With Each Tear.”

The drops continue to get worse. Previously at #25, Raheem DeVaughn clocks in at #41 and 11,969 sold for “The Love & War MasterPeace.” Surprised once again, closing out the charts this week is Jason Derülo with 11,705 sold into #43 for his self titled album.

The charts continue to miss Jay-Z, Beyonce, Gucci Mane and new addition Melanie Fiona. Next week the charts will welcome new comers Monica, Plies, Snoop Dogg, Yo Gotti, and Justin Bieber. Who will come up on top?
