Jay-Z Set to Score 10th No. 1 Album

According to early projections from Nielsen Soundscan, Jay-Z is on pace to score his tenth No.1 Album when first week record sales are tallied next Tuesday. According to Soundscan’s newly implemented Building Chart, which tracks early sales of new releases, Hov moved 179,000 copies of American Gangster during its first day in stores. Another chart topping album for the Def Jam president will tie him with Elvis Presley as the artist with the second highest amount of No. 1 debuts in history. The Beatles currently hold the title for the most, with 19 No. 1 debuts. The Building Chart, which Billboard estimates to represent about 79% of the U.S. retail market, also predicts a debut in the Top 10 for Philly MC Cassidy, whose latest, B.A.R.S. (The Barry Adrian Reese Story), also hit stores this week.
