The pseudo-soundtrack to the film, “Notorious” has climbed its was towards the top of charts:
Matching the success of the film from which it spawned, Notorious: Music From and Inspired by the Original Motion Picture has landed atop several Billboard charts, scoring the week’s biggest debut at #4 on the Billboard 200.
The Bad Boy Records release, which was in stores three days before Notorious hit theaters, sold 43,000 copies in it’s first week of release.
The album also made it to No. 1 on the “Top Rap Albums” chart, and No. 2 on both the “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” and “Top Digital Albums” list as well.
A musical companion to the film capturing the rise of Brooklyn’s favorite son, the album combines Notorious B.I.G. chart toppers like “Juicy” with new music by Jay-Z, Jadakiss, Faith Evans, and even Biggie’s son CJ Wallace.
A two-disc special edition is currently on sale at Target stores nationwide, pairing the CD with a new documentary, Remembering Christopher Wallace.
The DVD features exclusive interviews with slain rap great’s family including Mrs. Voletta Wallace and the two children he left behind.
We’re glad the album is doing well as far as position goes, but 43,000 in it’s first week has to be disappointing. Sh*t, certified gold might be out of the question, let alone trying to make it to platinum. Darn.
