Pitbull Knocks the Black Eyed Peas from the Top 10

After 13 weeks on top of the charts the Black Eyed Peas have finally exited The Billboard 200‘s top 10.

Claiming their spot is Miami rep Pitbull with his fourth solo album, Rebelution. The Cuban rapper managed to debut at no. 8 in his first week, largely in part to his club banger “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho).” Rebelution, Pitbull’s first release on J Records, sold approximately 41,100 units according to the Nielsen SoundScan.

The Peas fell three spots to no. 11 this week with their latest LP, The E.N.D (Energy Never Dies). The group pushed an additional 33,800 discs this go-round, finally putting their CD in platinum territory at 1,027,600 units sold overall.

Eminem sits all the way down at no. 30 in his 16th week on the charts. Fans bagged up 16,400 copies of Relapse this week, bringing the Detroit lyricist’s total stats to 1,410,900.

Two spots down is Brooklyn rapper Fabolous. F-A-B-O pushed 14,600 copies of Loso’s Way out of stores this sales cycle, making his total tally stand at 207,400.

Debuting all the way down at no. 77 is State Property leader Beanie Sigel. The Philly MC’s new street album, The Broad Street Bully, sold 6,500 copies.

On the R&B side, Trey Songz made a big debut this week landing at the no. 3 spot with his third album Ready. The Virgina crooner moved 130,800 units in his first week.

Next week look for Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 and Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…Pt. II to debut high on the charts. –Elan Mancini

    Pitbull is garbage. Don’t hear niggas saying he sold out?


    The Energy Has Died! thanks to… Pitbull? *shrugs shoulders*

  • Pierzy

    The fact that Pitbull is so popular makes me weep for my fellow Americans…

  • Bobo D

    I always thought Pitbull made the wrong career choice, he should be a video director or something. You can see that he personally selects each eye candy for his videos. I give him 9/10 for video model selection, 3/10 for music.

    Anyway, looks like the energy died for BEP, oh well. I see Trey doing his thing again for the ladies; VA stand up!

    I’m eager to see what next week is gonna bring about…

    Pitbull is ok. While he may not be as lyrical as some of his other Latino MCs, the man’s commercial success is second to none.

    He’s not great, but he is decent. Drops a few gems from time to time. Big ups to him doing his thing on the charts…

    E9 up!!! Curtis75Black guest stars!!!

  • abdulnasir

    U’d think niggas would be happy for Pitbull. Anyway couldn’t imagine it was him who was gonna knock the peas out! That’s Rebelution. Uno, Dos, Tres, Quatro… I know u hate meeeeee!

  • brand-new

    what up federal ranga. i took a vacation to miami about a month ago and i heard calle ocho in every f’n club! you must be sick of it down there!

    • http://myspace.com/federalranga Federal Ranga

      calle ocho in every f’n club!

      You know the drill… clubs are merely big ass radios that trap you inside them. Clubs play what the fuck is on the radio (which I don’t listen to) – the EXACT same reason I don’t hit the clubs down here, not even the strip clubs… So in a way… thanks for the warning.

      E9 Guest Starring Curtis75Black up!!!

      New Freestyles!!!

  • $ykotic/Don McCaine

    Which will be the forum for next week?

    a. Has Jay Z fell off because of low sales?

    b. Eminem OR even BEP did better opening numbers, why not Jigga?

    c. Does Raekwon need to hang it up?

    d. How politically connected is Pitbull?

    Tune in next week…

  • latino heat

    well i see my comment from earlier never posted here. anyway it said that Raekwon was under shipped. not as bad as Slaughterhouse but still only available at half the Best Buy’s in my area and none of them in my immediate area. this will obviously fuck up his numbers next week since i know i’m not the only one that can’t get it.

    @ Syk
    i don’t think it’s political connections homie. i was at Target last Friday and i was looking at the cd’s and i even told my chick “why does Pitbull have the most empty slots on the shelf?” somebody is buying Pit’s album’s. don’t ask me who though.

      The power of the Taino mi amigo. Straight island hopping from the port.

      I was poking fun @ his Republican co-sign.

  • Brooklyn

    i think pitbull used to be better as an mc but lately he’s been making more and more club music. however, his club joints are bangers, they get the honies in the club buck. and i co-sign bobo d, those chicks he have in his video as fine as hell.
