Black Eyed Peas debut at No. 1 on The Billboard 200
"The E.N.D." starts at the beginning - of The Billboard 200 album chart, that is. As expected, Black Eyed Peas debut at No. 1 with the new album, the first No. 1 ever for the crew. With 304,000 copies sold, it also becomes the pop/hip-hop quartet's best sales week yet.
BEP's 2005 album only got as far as No. 2 on the tally, chronically beat out by Coldplay's "X&Y," which bowed with 737,000.
This new release bumps down Dave Matthews Band's "Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King" to No. 2 with 128,000, a dramatic 70% dip in sales. Eminem's "Relapse" falls 2-3 with 87,000 (-38%) while Chickenfoot's self-titled album stays at No. 4, with a 53% increase to 79,000. In the latter's case, the increase can be explained by the group releasing the set on a Friday - so its initial entry was only a sum of three days of sale.
Aventura earns its best charting and sales week ever with "Last" at No. 5 with 47,000 - a rare day, indeed, in a sales world where Latin acts rarely crack the top 10.
Lady GaGa's "The Fame" continues its rebound on The Billboard 200 as it leaps 8-6 with 47,000 (flat sales compared to the previous week). The soundtrack to "Hannah Montana: The Movie" fallst 6-7 with 46,000 (-8%) as Green Day's "21st Cetnruy Breakdown" descends 5-8 with 41,000 (-21%).
Mos Def notches his second top 10 album with "Ecstatic" entering at No. 9 (39,000). Only his 2005 set "The New Danger" did better, bowing and peaking at No. 5.
Pleasure P, formerly of Pretty Ricky, debuts at No. 10 with his first solo album "The Introduction of Marcus Cooper." Sales were helped by the single "Boyfriend #2," which peaked at No. 42 on The Hot 100 chart in May and continues to impact other R&B/Hip-Hop and pop charts.
At 6.34 , sales this week are down 31.7% compared to the same week a year ago. Sales year-to-date are 161.4 million, down 14% compared to last year.
