Jennifer Lopez

After extended absences from music, Jennifer Lopez and the Beastie Boys are back on the Billboard charts. The superstars debut in the top 5 on this week’s albums chart.

Hot Sauce Committee Part 2, the Beastie Boys’ first proper release in seven years, enters in the runner-up spot on the Billboard 200 below Adele’s 21 with 128,000 copies sold. Hot Sauce is the hip-hop trailblazers sixth top 10, followed by To the 5 Boroughs, which debuted at No. 1 in 2004 with 360,000.

Jennifer Lopez’ Island Def Jam debut LOVE? comes in at No. 5 with 83,000. The “American Idol” judge’s previous English-language album, 2007’s Brave, peaked at No. 12 with 53,000.

Also in the top 10 is Sade’s second greatest hits package, The Ultimate Collection, which racked up 38,000 units (No. 7), giving the British band its ninth consecutive top 10 album. Musiq Soulchild’s MusiqInTheMagiq arrives at No. 8 with 35,000.

    83,000 is still decent for her. It seems like anything under 500,000 copies is a flop for people. Sales dont matter anyways.

    Sade is the only band besides Led Zeppelin with that many top 10 albums in a row. Legendary. Bow Down.

    Here we go again all the nasty people, really nasty people, without a life, experts on nothing at all acting like they actually know something. Give the woman a break, she is ok.

    83,000 is a damn flop anyway you look at it she gets 20 million viewers on Idol and to only sell 80k is sad.

    Who cares about J.Lo ? This is RAP up, not POP-up! So welcome back Beastie Boys! It’s a great album. Y’all need to cop that.
