It’s Lucky Number 7 for Common

Common’s seventh album Finding Forever will debut at #1 on next week’s Billboard charts. This is Common’s first album to reach #1 on The Billboard 200 with 155,329 copies sold in its first week. Common sent out a MySpace bulletin with the news:

Peace Fam

With your unprecedented love and support you, “The People” have helped us make Finding Forever the # 1 album this week!

I want to thank all of you who have supported in helping us accomplish this great feat but the journey is not over! And if you still haven’t bought a copy, join the movement… spread the word…

Peace & Love

The album had little promotion, so the fact that it landed at #1 is a great feat. Congrats to Common on his first and well-deserved #1 album!
