Jadakiss’ ‘Top 5 Dead or Alive’ Album Debuts at No. 4 on Billboard 200
The album comes in at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart with 66,000 units sold. The album is Jada's first in six years and follows the strong debuts of 2001's Kiss Tha Game Goodbye (No. 5), 2004's Kiss of Death (No. 1) and 2009's The Last Kiss (No. 3). Both Kiss Tha Game Goodbye and Kiss of Death are both certified gold records.
Elsewhere on the charts, The Weeknd's Beauty Behind the Madness jumped up from No. 8 to No. 5 with another 65,000 sold and Fetty Wap's self titled LP cracked the top 10 once again with 38,000 units sold.
Despite the strong numbers from some of hip-hop's elite, no one in the music world came close to touching Adele. Her third album, 25, sold a ridiculous 3.48 million copies in six days -- good enough for the largest sales week for an album since Nielsen started tracking point-of-sale music purchases in 1991.
To put those stats in perspective, Justin Bieber's Purpose album set the record for sales plus streaming numbers with 649,000. Adele's 3.48 million sold that many five times over. The singer's previous album, 21, is back in the top 10 for the first time in nearly three years as the project jumped from 25-9 with another 46,000 sold. The rich get richer.
