This week’s Billboard album chart has a familiar ring to it: Jay-Z and Kanye West hold the #1 spot for a second week with Watch The Throne. Featuring the hit single “Otis”, the hip-hop superstar summit rings up another 177,000 units in sales this week. It sells more than double the quantity of the week’s #2 album, which is–looky looky–Adele’s 21. Now riding the wave of a second hit single (“Someone Like You” hits the Top 40 this week), Adele’s sophomore album crosses the 3 million-sold mark in just six months, an amazing feat in this day and age.
The album chart is pretty quiet, with only two new albums in the Top 20. Country music is having a pretty good summer, and the Eli Young Band’s new album, Life Is Best, starts at #6. It’s one of four country albums in the Top Ten. Meanwhile, Blue October’s Any Man In America kicks off it’s chart life at #8. It’s the veteran band’s highest ever chart position, and it also debuts as the #1 rock album in the country.
Next week, Watch The Throne could potentially grab a third week at the top. It looks like the biggest challenge will come from yet another rapper, as Game’s fourth album hit stores this week and looks to ring up a total very slightly south of 100,000 units. The week after next, all bets are off as Lil Wayne and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to make big splashes. There’s even more Weezy news after the jump.
Over on the singles chart, Wayne and his protege Drake debut at #3 with “She Will”. It’s the highest debut on the singles chart this year, held off of the top by two long-running summer favorites; LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” and Katy Perry’s “T.G.I.F. (Last Friday Night).” Other big chart moves are made by the aforementioned Adele, plus Rihanna (whose latest single “Cheers (Drink To That)” stands at #17 in it’s fourth chart week.) Over on the R&B singles chart, Wayne and Drake are running shit. “She Will” jumps to #17 in it’s second week on that particular chart and either Drake or Lil Wayne features on no less than SEVEN songs on the R&B singles chart, including three of the top 4.
