The Number 100,000 Is Finally Broken in the 12th Week of US Hot 200



After 4 consecutive weeks of low sale albums, this week the number 100,000 is broken by a new album.

Just when new albums started entering the chart last week, they are replaced by a fresh batch of new ones this week. Also, the number 100,000 has been broken this week after four consecutive weeks selling under that. The breaker is brand new album "Luvanmusiq" by Musiq Soulchild that sells 149,000 copies. This is the R&B artist's second #1 album since "Juslisen" in 2002. In Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart meanwhile Musiq also score a place in the Top 5 through single "B.U.D.D.Y.".

Another fresh-from-the-oven, Lloyd's "Street Love" reigns the second runner of the chart thanks to a sale of 144,000. Rapper Rich Boy entails behind at #3 with his self-titled album that sells 112,000 units. At no. 4 self titled album from old topper DAUGHTRY goes through a decrease sale from 82,000 to 80,000.

Akon's "Konvicted" in its 17th week sits at no. 5 with 71,000. The album is the oldest Top 10 occupant. Neil Young's acoustic "Live at Massey Hall" bows at #6 with 57,000, while the British new rising star Amy Winehouse enters the chart at no. 7 through "Back to Black" with 51,000 copies sold. Just one position behind is the duo 8Ball & MJG that reach the number 50,000 through the duo's ninth album "Ridin High".

Fall Out Boy still maintains its authority in the Top 10 with the album "Infinity on High" that slip 8-9 due to the 26 per cent sales decrease to 43,000. Country star Carrie Underwood with debut album "Some Hearts" on other hand manage to grab the #10 after selling 42,000 units.

The overall sales this week, though breaks 100,000, is still a decrease from last week by 1.8 per cent. In the same week last year the total sale is 18.7 per cent higher.
