Dropping six positions to No. 26, Jay-Z & Kanye West’s Watch the Throne sold an additional 12,700 this week for a total of 1,261,000 copies moved 23 weeks after entering the chart,. Meanwhile, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV sold 12,221, moving 1,946,600 units after 20 weeks on the chart and dropping 11 spots to No. 29.
And rounding off the top 50, Common’s Dreamer The Believer, which rose four spots to No. 38 this week, sold 8,500 more copies bringing his tally to 106,100 four weeks later. —Gina Montana
