Rick Ross Rules Charts with ‘God Forgives, I Don’t’

Rick Ross

Rick Ross is the boss of the Billboard charts once again. The Maybach Music mogul lands at No. 1 with his fifth album God Forgives, I Don’t.

The critically-acclaimed LP from Rozay enters atop the Billboard 200 with 218,000 copies sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It becomes his fourth album to debut at No. 1 and the biggest sales week of his career.

His last album, 2010’s Teflon Don, moved 176,000 units in its first week. All of his albums including his 2006 debut Port of Miami, 2008’s Trilla, and 2009’s Deeper Than Rap have debuted at No. 1, with the exception of Teflon.

The Bawse took to Twitter to thank his fans for their support. “My 4th no.1 Album #GodGreat everyone who supported me & mine #thanku,” he tweeted.

Elsewhere on the chart, Nas’ Life Is Good falls 2-6 (32,000) in its third week, while Joss Stone’s The Soul Sessions, Vol. 2 opens at No. 10 with 24,000.

    @End Of Discussion, Why do you think a number one album is the greatest thing in the world? I mean sure it sounds great but it doesnt mean a number 1 album is better than an album that peaked at 2 or 3 in terms of quality.

    Anyway 4 number 1 albums is still something to be celebrated so congrats.

    @MinajRules2012, Dumb move but yet he still has the #1 album? I think not. When Nicki Minaj gets the biggest label in Hip Hop, 4 Number 1 albums and stops being a label puppet then come back and talk to me.

    @End Of Discussion, Rick Ross doesn’t have the biggest label so I hope you aren’t referring to him and nicki is not a label puppet she said in an interview with This50 she wanted to do all kinds of music

    Rick’s album was good, but the greatest hip-hop album of the year goes to Nas. Still waiting on that G.O.O.D. album though. Congrats to him!!

    Feb26Frank Weihs God morning as I psaire Him for another day. Allow me to say we are all rooted in His rythmn and as long as you give Him the psaire for your life first, your choice is good. May your C# be sharp, let your F note not be flat and let your G denote that God’s Son will sing over your life if you let him. I’m just saying, while I’m singing His psaires that He can sing for you today in His kinda way. My prayer for you today is to respect yourself when you sing and your rythmn will roll.Love, Brother Frank
