US Charts Review

This week on the charts, no new releases, but we do have the latest on who’s still hot and who’s not.

As we breeze through two American bands – who debuted into the top two spots – and Taylor Swift, we find our beloved Nicki Minaj, repping for the urban contenders. “Pink Friday” sold 32,877 into #4. Bruno Mars sold 32,334 for “Doo-Wops & Hooligans,” which earned the #5 position this week. Rihanna dropped from #5 to #7 for “Loud,” which sold 29,233. Kanye West closes up the top #10 with “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” which barely made the cutoff at #9 with 26,199 sold.

Katy Perry and her “Teenage Dream,” sold 23,597 into #13 and Eminem dropped from #8 and followed at #14 for “Recovery,” which sold 21,654. Down six spots, R. Kelly sold 17,744 into #20 for his comeback effort “Love Letter.” Jamie Foxx did the same as he moved out #15 into #21 for “Best Night of My Life.” The album sold 16,805 into #21. Black Eyed Peas’ “Beginning” sold 16,654 into #22, as T.I. has “No Mercy” in at #23 with 14,292 sold. Keyshia Cole remains content at #25 for “Calling All Hearts,” which sold 13,428.

Lil Wayne sold 12,193 into #27 for “I Am Not a Human Being.” Michael Jackson’s self-titled album, “Michael” took one of the hardest falls this week. Down ten spots “Michael” sold 11,255 into #31. Keri Hilson fell as well. Dropping from #23 to #32, Miss Keri’s “No Boys Allowed” sold 11,205.

Somewhere down the charts, Ke$ha popped up at #39, after dropping from her previous position of #32. Her album “Cannibal,” sold 10,132. Cee Lo Green sold 9.854 for “Lady Killer,” which took the #41 position. Surprisingly, Justin Bieber dropped from #36 to #43 and only sold 9,786 for “My World 2.0.” With his new movie coming out, he’s going to be king of the charts again in no time. Diddy-Dirty Money remains content in #45 with 8,135 sold for “Last Train to Paris.” Lady Gaga takes #48 for
“The Fame,” and sold 7,808. Ke$ha closes the charts right at #50 for “Animal,” selling 7,617.
