Album Sales Charts – Week Ending 6/27

Posted By on June 29, 2010

     I don't think there was much of a doubt who would top this week's charts and now that the final numbers are in, everyone was right. Eminem, and his new "Recovery" album, take the number 1 (and passing his first week sales for his "Relapse" album from last year, top spot with the 2nd place artist, some guy that goes by the name Drake, close to six-hundred thousand copies away. When they aren't doing their day-to-day job as Jimmy Fallon's house band, The Roots put out their new "How I Got Over" album and managed to debut at number 6 with just under 50 thousand copies sold

      With rumors of Fergie leaving the group (although Will.I.Am says they are a lie), The Black Eyed Peas only drop two spots pushing yet another 16,444 copies while B.o.B continues to do well well as his "Adventure" scans close to 15,000 copies.

      On the R&B tip, Usher continues to rule the charges as his "Raymond vs Raymond" album only drops one spot to 14th pushing close to 24,5000 copies plus Alicia Keys actually gains one spot to 33rd by selling close to 12,000 more albums.
