Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Grab No. 2 Spot on Billboard’s Top 200 With Strength & Loyalty

bone-1.jpgBone Thugs-N-Harmony will take the No. 2 spot on this week’s Top 200 chart with their latest release, Strength & Loyalty, which moved 119,000 copies in its first week in stores. The Ohio based trio missed the No. 1 spot by just over 25,000 copies, losing out to Canadian crooner Michael Bublé, who moved up from No. 2 to claim the top spot. Strength & Loyalty marks Bone’s first Top 10 LP since 2000’s BTNHResurrection, which also debuted at No. 2. Elsewhere on the charts this week we see Duke Da God’s latest compilation project, Dipset: More Than Music Vol 2, land at No. 26 with just over 23,000 copies sold. Indie rapper Sage Francis will also chart at No. 96 with his latest, Human The Death Dance, which moved about 8,700 units. Also landing in the Top 200 this week is Houston mainstay Z-Ro with his new LP, Power, which will land at No. 197 with just under 5,000 discs sold.

    Good for dem niggaz!

  • Danny

    Damn yo! that comes to show that the whole Dipset fan base is fuckin street! they bootleg everything!

    My take on bootleging is, you should at least support the artist you like! god damn!! you can download as much as you want but support your favorite artist. If we keep bootleging then there will be no more artists!!!!!

    I mean 23,000?? come on man, thats some bullshit…

    Ya dig?

    This should show feel fans form fake fans bone has real fans who whold go send they hard earned money on they new lp when dipset fan rather bootleg it then buy it. What does that tell you, think about it??? Is dipset hot or not? Buy the sells not. So does that make bone hot?? You be the judge.

    Young Cesa shut the fuck up already yo. Bone dick rider you, their wack they lost first to aq dude who came in second last week and he’s Candian. “Indoe” Bone never sold over 20 mil. which is good but they still suck balls, Dipset should of came at least in the top ten, but hey dipset fans are broke.

    Big ups Cleveland, it says a lot to be #2 on Billboard overall, the number sold is relative to people who actually took money and went to the record store and bought an album.

  • kaje

    Record sales is at an all time ass low. Its so low that its not even inspiring for a new artist on the come up. We do this shit to get our name out there but we want to get paid to I just see that music aint the way to go nobody will be making music after a while because of the bootlegging. A new artist coming out can only look forward to selling at the most 350,000 copies and thats bull compaired to the way it used to be.

  • Facescar

    I’m happy for them, they deserved it..
    Its a shame More Than Music 2 semi-flopped tho…

  • dark vanilla

    Bone Thugs should have been number 1. Favorite songs: Flow Motion, C-Town, I Tried, The Streets.
    As for Dipset, they’re a joke and will always be a joke.

    Not as pathetic as you not being able to tell sarcasm when you see it.
    What have you sold in your life besides shit out your garage and your ass to old men?

    Or as pathetic as being a Dipset Stanboy Dickrider and sayin Ya Dig? all the damn time, and fightin the good fight for your tight pants wearin homo thug crew you love to rep so much.
    Look Danny Boy, we know you love Dipset you dont hafta say Ya Dig? anymore, k lil homie?
    Besides if I did sell 10K out my trunk, Itd already be almost half of your boy Duke Da Broad’s first week, YA DIG? LMFAO.
