50 Cent's Massacre sold 1.14 million copies in just four days tops of the Billboard 200
50 Cent has come to its career-best as 'The Massacre' album, which sales began five days early to thwart pirates, went top of the Billboard 200, selling an astonishing 1.14 million copies in just four days after its release. "Candy Shop" of the album was number one and "Disco Inferno" was number five, while his collaboration with the Game on "Ho We Do" was number four.
Such attainment made 50 Cent singer Fiddy, whose 2003 'Get Rich or Die Tryin' broke the million-copy first-week mark in 2003, the first solo to land three singles simultaneously in the Top 5 since SoundScan began tracking sales data in 1991. Also topped the Billboard 200 chart were Jennifer Lopez' "Rebirth" ranked No.2, with 261,000 copies sold and Jack Johnson's "In Between Dreams" came in third on sales of 228,000 units.
