Jay Z Falls to No. 2, Rich Gang Earns Top 10 Debut

Jay-Z

Jay Z has been knocked from his throne. Magna Carta… Holy Grail falls to No. 2 on the Billboard 200 this week.

The hip-hop titan’s album sold 77,000 copies in its third week (down 40%), according to Nielsen SoundScan. It was bumped from the top spot by Selena Gomez, who earns her first No. 1 with Stars Dance (97,000).

Birdman and company’s Rich Gang compilation debuts at No. 9, selling 24,000 copies. It marks the highest-charting hip-hop compilation since G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer in 2012.

The year’s best-selling album, Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, slides 9-10 with 21,000.

Look for Robin Thicke to debut at the top of the charts next week with Blurred Lines featuring his No. 1 smash with T.I. and Pharrell.

    I DONE TOLD YOU THAT CAMEL SALES WERE TRICKERY AND F8CKERY AND THAT CIARA IS REALLY THE NUMBER 1 FOR LAST WEEK.

    ANYTIME A PERSON FALLS OFF BY 40% THE SECOND WEEK, YOU KNOW THAT THEY ARE BUYING THEIR OWN MUSIC, AND HE IS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR HIS DIRTY DEED.

    HIS COUNTRY BUMPKIN BEY HAD HIM TO DO THAT DIRT TO CIARA. SHE HAS DONE SO MUCH DIRT TO FAKE BEING ON THE TOP WHEN SHE DISBANDED DESTINY CHILD AND WOULDN’T ALLOW KELLY AND MICHELLE TO USE THE NAME, AND WHEN SHE FIRED THE ORIGINAL DESTINY CHILD. A PERSON LIKE THAT DOESNT DESERVE ANY HONORS. WHAT’S SHE GONE DO NEXT TO FAKE IT TO THE TOP.

    KILL OFF THE COMPETITION THROUGH SLANDER AND BLOGS?

    OR JUST CONTINUE TO BUY UP HER OWN MUSIC TO CREATE A FAKE NUMBER 1.

    @sandra, You’re a idiot, what did you expect him to keep selling 527,000 copies everywhere. lmfao Every artist album tend to drop 60-70 percent the first week, 40-50 percent the following week and then it sells consistently dependingon the singles.

    Jay should be platinum in another month and when you factor in his 1 mil from Samsung he should do 2.5-3 mil in sales.

    @sandra,
    Im sorry but why would Jay or Bey be worried about Ciara? Beyonce is by far more established as an artist and Jay z as well

    @sandra, You are a retard. Ciara was not going to sell better than Jay-z at any point in time. Jay-z has a bigger fan base. Also him doing that deal with Samsung meant that nobody was going to beat him. He already went platinum by the first day it was officially released. Ciara fell off with her last two albums so what made you think she was going to get a number 1 album. Ciara cant even sing all that well she is only good for dancing. Nobody is checking for Ciara like that. She lost a lot of her fan base and its not even half the size of Jay-z’s fan base. Than on top of that the album was leaked about 3 weeks before the release so she definitely wasnt going to sell that much.

    Now the Beyonce part: Why would Beyonce be worried about Ciara or any of these female artist that doesnt even have a big and loyal fan base like her? Beyonce is on her sold out world tour, been doing so good this year, and her album is coming out in November. Why would she even be worried about people who are releasing their album in the summertime. Also you are wrong that Kelly and Michelle cant use the name of Destiny’s Child because they sing songs from Destiny’s Child on their tours and performances. If they arent aloud to use the name of Destiny’s Child than they wouldnt be aloud to use the songs either. So please stop because Beyonce doesnt use the Destiny’s Child brand because her name itself is a brand. The only reason Beyonce got fame and is the breakthrough artist was because she was the lead singer of Destiny’s Child and her solo album was highly anticipated by everybody during that time. Also Beyonce didnt fire the two girls her father did and Beyonce went into depression after they were fired so just stop. Beyonce and Kelly tried to work it out with them but they werent answering phone calls so that means its over. Beyonce works harder than these female artist so these awards and honors she gets is well deserved. she worked for them. As far as Im concerned you are a hater.

    @sandra, Sandra you are correct in everything you stated above. For the people who are being rude and ignorant they don’t investigate that juts instigate and plus they are mindless drones who actually purchase music from Bey and Jay. They are so ignorant that they don’t even know that Sony purchased the song to sell along with the SAMSUNG 4 hence the high records sales and then the phone promo didn’t even surpass sales for Samsung. Beyoncé has done so many underhanded things to so many people that I have lost all respect for her. She is supposedly a “Christian” but has married a man who has openly admitted to never reading the bible and he never will and who has made a sung signifying that Jesus cant save us and life begins when the church ends. No Sandra, I wouldn’t worry at all about the ignorant comments its just some people need idols rather than praising their own lives and achievement’s. Some people are just mindless stans and wanna be’s.

    @Sheila, Ur comment makes no sense at all . I’m glad that as a person u would judge people in that way . I’m hoping you don’t follow God or the bible at all because judging isn’t something you supposed to do . Correct ? Second Jay-z did a deal with Samsung … What u mean it didn’t surpass sales . Ur an natural idiot . For who didn’t it surpass ? The fact that he was able to strike a deal is the sale . U guys are just haters . He didn’t make the phones … He sold his product isn’t that what the store does ? How are we mindless drones when you can’t see past ur screen … The man is making moves . Like it or not jobs are opened for people as he goes along . You on the other hand aren’t helping half as much people he’s helping . He don’t need to glorify it . It just what it is . A business . U take things personal like he’s supposed to save peoples lifes or something . Is he supposed to make ur life better because he’s made his better for himself . U guys are the worst . Have all speculations .. always figure u know the rights and the wrong . Until u are wrong and people really looking into who u are . Things happen in life . it just so happen these things that are happning here has nothing to do with either u or Sandra . Why would Jay-z buy his own albums . He just made 5 mill off Samsung in 1 day . Not only are u guys new to the world u guys can’t calculate .
