Rounding out the top 10 this week is Timbaland, whose album Timbaland Presents: Shock Value slips from #5 with 39k on the week (236k to date). Right beneath him is Robin Thicke, whose Evolution of Robin Thicke jumps from #19 to #11 with 38k on the week (981k total). Look for Mr. Thicke to go platinum next week.
Paul Wall is having a little trouble, though he remains in the top 20 – barely. Coming in at #20 is his album Get Money, Stay True, with 27k total this week, 156k overall. MIMS is having a rough go of it as well, as Music is My Savior drops from #32 to #41 with 16k units moved this week.
Young Jeezy holds on to the #55 spot this week, after having gone platinum last. Inspiration: Thug Motivation 102 pushes another 11k, bringing the Snowman’s total to 1 million and change. Four spots below are the Gym Class Heroes with As Cruel As School Children raking in another 10k (299k overall).
Continuing last week’s slowly increasing trend, Musiq Soulchild manages to move up 6 spots to #29, with Luvanmusiq selling 20k copies this week (306k overall). Crime Mob enjoys a little success as well, as their album Hated on Mostly movesfrom #133 to #127, with 6k this week (57k overall).
Finally, it seems as if all the hip hop controversy of late has helped Snoop Dogg, whose Blue Carpet Treatment is back on the charts at #199, with 4k on the week (849k overall). It looks like speaking his mind on the issue of rappers calling women “bitches” and “hoes” has garnered the Boss Dogg some new fans.
