Usher “Stands” At Number One On Billboard Charts With New Album

Usher’s new album is titled Here I Stand and the Atlanta star’s foresight could have been any better as he easily stands atop the Billboard album charts.

The singer sold 442,930 copies of his latest album, powered by his Polow Da Don-produced hit “Love in this Club,” featuring Young Jeezy.

Veteran UGK rapper Bun B hold down the number four slot as his latest, II Trill, sold just over 40,000 copies to bring his two-week total to 138,566 units sold.

The math on Mariah Carey’s album, E=MC2, looks good, the singer is holding down the number eight slot and is just shy of recording another platinum plaque.

On the heels of his next release, Plies’ debut album, The Real Testament just crossed the 500,000 plateau, certifiying it as a Gold-selling album. The Fort Myers rapper’s next album, Definition of Real, is scheduled for release on June 10.—XXL staff

    Damn Plies, you dropped in August and you are just moving 500,000 units in late May……DAMN!!

  • Emissary

    Nobody talks about the quality of albums anymore it’s just how much they sell…this article didn’t mention how trash the rest of Usher’s album is(waits for his female fans to call me a hater for speaking the truth)just the single feat. “this weeks so-called hot rapper” that the music industry forced on us and the people didn’t crown.

    did usher even write love in this club himself?

    • The Truth

      Are you a damn fool? The album is the shit! Obviously its a little mature for your virgin ears lil buddy! Try listening to it in a few years when you get a little older & your bank account grows up!

    big chops you misunderstood what they meant the word JUST. they were not saying he just went over the 500,000 as in just last week. they were saying he just made it gold as in 500,234 copies. actually he was certified a few months ago

    Ima have to agree with The Truth, Emissary is retarded to the max. That whole Usher album was the ish, I was never a huge Usher fan until I bought this album, there’s only 2 or 3 mediocre tracks, all the others grow on you and are dope as f*!k.
