Ludacris Beats out Janet, Scores Third Consecutive #1 Album

ludacris.jpgDef Jam artist Ludacris tops this week’s album charts with his third consecutive #1 chart debut. His 6th LP, Release Therapy, moved slightly over 309,000 discs, outselling powerhouse Janet Jackson’s latest by approximately 13,000 units. This impressive showing will also mark Luda’s sixth consecutive #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop chart. In another surprising debut, Weird Al Yankovic lands in the #10 spot after moving just under 73,000 copies of his latest parody album, Straight Outta Lynwood, powered by “White and Nerdy,” his comedic take on Chamillionaire’s “Ridin’ Dirty.” Elsewhere on the charts, Black Eyed Peas front woman Fergie slips to #9 after a 53% drop in sales of her solo debut, The Dutchess. Lupe Fiasco, whose first week numbers have now been adjusted following a Soundscan reporting error, slides to #32 after selling an additional 31,000 copies of his debut, Food & Liquor.
