Young Jeezy’s Thug Motivation 103 LP Debuts at No. 3 on Billboard

After album delays, Young Jeezy’s Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition proved to be worth the wait.

After its December 20 release, the latest installment in Jeezy’s Thug Motivation series sold 232,938 copies to debut at No. 3 on the Billboard charts just behind Adele and Michael Buble. Common moved 69,000 units of his The Dreamer/The Believer album in its debut week to land at No. 17, while Drake pushed 131,000 more copies of his Take Care LP to get a boost up to No. 5 on the charts.

But it’s Jeezy that represents hip-hop the highest on the charts this week. TM 103’s first week’s sales were powered by singles like “Lose My Mind,” “Ballin’” featuring Lil Wayne, “F.A.M.E.” with T.I. and the heater “I Do” which includes assists from Jay-Z and Andre 3000. —Jakinder Singh
