Atlanta rapper T.I. debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. pop charts Wednesday with the best sales week of the year, while reigning champ Prince tumbled to No.
In a recap of the Top 10 albums on the US pop album charts for the week ended Sunday, there's something interesting that people could obviously see. It's the new chart-topper which debuts on its very top position.
The top spot on the Billboard 200 surprisingly is seized by Atlanta rapper T.I., whose album "King" sold almost 522,000 copies, such amount enough to push last week chart topper Prince's "3121" aside to No. 8 with only 75,000 copies. Checking in at No. 2 in the meantime is Tim McGraw's "Reflected: Greatest Hits Vol. 2," which sold 242,000 copies.
Meanwhile, the "High School Musical" soundtrack is at No. 3 with 165,000 copies and "Fishscale" by Ghostface Killah is at No. 4. Secure the 5th place is "Educated Horses" by Rob Zombie, ahead of Shakira's "Oral Fixation Vol. 2" at No. 6 and James Blunt's "Back to Bedlam" at No. 7. Rounding out the Top 10 is Atreyu's "Death-Grip on Yesterday" at No. 9 and Alan Jackson's "Precious Memories" which lands at the 10th position.
