T.I. Surrenders No. 1 Spot on Billboard
T.I. has finally relinquished the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 after a three week run at the top. Tip was finally knocked off his throne by the NOW 25 compilation CD, and the new LP from teen sensation Hannah Montana. NOW 25, which features current hits from artists such as Beyonce, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Avril Lavigne, sold an impressive 222,500 copies to land at No. 1. Hannah Montana, who is now in her fourth week in stores, managed to sell another 113,000 copies of her latest, edging out T.I. by about 20,000 units. The King of the South may not be the king of the charts this week, but with 93,500 more units under his belt, he’s well on his way to a platinum plaque. The current to date total for T.I. vs. T.I.P. is now 737,739.
