Album Sales Chart – Week Ending 9/21

Posted By on September 24, 2008

    Ne-Yo takes the top spot this week as he debuts number 2 on the sales charts after selling just over 250,000 copies of his new album "Year Of The Gentleman." As we previously reported, Nelly's "Brass Knuckles" was predicted to not sell very well, well the St. Louis rapper ended up in the 3rd spot after pushing only 81,106 copies in his first week. Young Jeezy drops from #2 to #5 selling 64,266 copies of his "Recession" and DJ Khaled debuted in the 7th spot with 50,663 copies sold of the "We Global" album.

    Lil Wayne stays in the top 10 landing at number 8 with another 42,875 copies sold while The Game's "L.A.X." was close behind at #9 selling a few hundred less than Weey's "Tha Carter III." On the R&B side of things (besides Ne-Yo), Rihanna dropped two spots to #14 after selling just under 32,000 copies of her "Good Girl Gone Bad" album.

    Other artists on the charts include LL Cool J dropping from #9 to #34 (with 13,689 copies sold) and Gym Class Heroes who also dropped (from #14 to #39) after selling 11,440 copies of their new album "Quilt."
