50 Cent roars onto the charts this week with his first album in nearly five years, but was it able to live up to his past success? The results are in.
Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire to Win, the rapper’s fifth and first independently-released album, debuts at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with 47,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
It marks his sixth top 10 effort and first album since leaving Interscope Records last year.
Animal Ambition is Fif’s lowest opening since 2009’s Before I Self Destruct, which debuted at No. 5 with 160,000.
Expect to see even more of 50 on the charts this year. He plans to release his next solo album Street King Immortal as well as a new G-Unit album by late November.
