Cole’s newest and third album A Different Me lands at no. 3 on this week’s charts, selling 322,000 copies, the best sales week of her career to date. Her 2007 album, Just Like You, also debuted at no. 2, but sold just 281,000 units.
Right behind Keyshia Cole is a new one from actor Jamie Foxx. His album, Intuition, scanned 265,000 units to put it at no. 3 during its first week. His previous album, Unpredictable, opened at no. 2 two years ago with 598,000 copies, but rose to no. 1 the following week.
Singer Anthony Hamilton returned to the charts with The Point of It All, selling 133,000 copies to put him at no. 12.
At no. 14 is Florida rapper Plies, and his third album, Da REAList, selling 114,000 copies This is Plies’ second album this year. In June, he released Definition of Real, which debuted at no. 2 with 215,000 copies sold.
That’s it for the top 20.
Later down the line, Soulja Boy Tell’em opens at a disappointing no. 43 with iSouljaBoyTellEm, despite launching his “Let’s Go Platinum In A Week Campaign” in November. The new album sold just 46,000 copies. His 2007 debut, SouljaBoyTellEm.com, began at No. 4 with 117,000, thanks to the runaway success of his hit single “Crank That.”
Those aren’t bad numbers with the economy being the way it is. We know someone’s out there making that special edition, deluxe cd that includes all of the artists’ albums mentioned above, and we want a copy, minus the Soulja Boy. Much appreciated.
