CHARTWATCH: The Numbers Are In...

(Week Ending July 26th)

It is only fitting that in Beyonce’s 4th week of release, her album 4 (Columbia) places at #4 on the charts with an estimated 53,018 copies sold. She should be crossing the 500,000 mark any day now and earning herself another Gold certified album.

DJ Khaled has proclaimed “we the best” for years now, and his fifth studio album managed to further prove that point. In it’s first week of release, riding high off the chart-topping single “I’m On It” which features Drake, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne, the album, We the Best Forever (Universal Republic), sold an estimated 51,778 copies, easily earning Khaled a Top 5 debut. The album’s next single “It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over” featuring Mary J. Blige, Fabolous, and Jadakiss, has officially hit the radio and has been garnering some spins as well as the song’s music video which was released last week.

The Bad Meets Evil duo of Royce Da 5’9” and Eminem come in at #9, up 2 spots from last week, with 29,344 albums sold. The video for Hell: The Sequel’s(Shady/Interscope) next single “Lighters” featuring Bruno Mars should be getting released very shortly since it was being filmed by Rich Lee about 2 weeks ago.

In the wake of Amy Winehouse’s tragic death earlier this week, fans and supporters came out in full force by purchasing the singer’s most famous album, Back to Black (Universal Republic) in large quantities. The album which was released several years ago sold an estimated 22,234 copies; a 1,830% increase from the week earlier. R.I.P. Amy.

G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam artist Big Sean dropped 6 spots in his album’s 4th week. He moved 14,561 copies, which is a 15% decline from the week earlier. His newest single “Dance (A$$)” has been getting major spins on both Urban and Pop radio, and with the release of the “Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay” featuring Kanye West video coming any day now, Finally Famous will be seen on the charts for some time to come.

Holding it down for Hip-Hop and rounding out the Top 50 is Wiz Khalifa, at #40, whose Rolling Papers (Atlantic) sold 10,300 copies this week and officially pushed the Pittsburgh native over the 500,000 mark, making his debut Gold certified. Congratulations Wiz!

Dropping This Week: (7/26/11)

R&B singer Kelly Rowland is releasing her third studio album Here I Am (Universal Republic). Kelly has been riding high due to the success of her single “Motivation” featuring Lil Wayne that has just been eating away at the airwaves for the past month. The ten-track album includes features from artists like: Big Sean, Lil Wayne, Rico Love, David Guetta and more. Production is handled by a number of producers which include: Tricky, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Jim Jonsin, Rico Love, RedOne and more.

Dropping In 2 Weeks: (8/9/11)

Jay-Z and Kanye West, a.k.a. “The Throne,” will be dropping one of the most anticipated albums in history with Watch the Throne (Roc Nation/Def Jam) on August 8th. While no singles have officially been released, expect this album to debut at #1 without a doubt. The album features appearances from Frank Ocean, Beyonce, Otis Redding and Mr. Hudson. Production comes from Kanye West, RZA, Mike Dean, Q-Tip, Swizz Beatz, The Neptunes, and many, many more.

Ace Hood will be dropping Blood, Sweat, and Tears (We the Best/Def Jam).

    August 2011 I launched with full force. I was excited to post, I was eager to see my traffic numbers weekly. All this occurred before social media took off. Then Instagram arrived and everybody and their mother wanted to be a "Blogger."
    When I first started I was totally against being called a blogger, because at the time bloggers were messy and posted negative gossip. That was never my thing. I am more of the Fashion x Music served with lite tea site. As Instagram popularity continued to grow I was more focused on posting daily there than on my site. I worked hard to achieve a following even though most of my followers just looked and never On August 11th, 2017 Instagram deleted my page for the second time. It happened in 2013 and then again a few weeks ago. I was totally hurt by the action especially since I am unsure why it was deleted.
    So I have decided to refocus my energy on my merchandise TheAddictedLife I'll continue to blog here and there but I'm bigger than just being a "Blogger." Branding Addicted2Candi is so much more than that. So maybe the universe is telling me to reroute to fulfill my dreams. For anyone that enjoyed my few podcast shows, I am releasing a new podcast this month. I have so much in store for myself and all of my supporters.
    Ladies please be sure to cop your Dope Chick With Ambition T- Shirt via My goal is to be a millionaire in this lifetime and that's what I am going to achieve. Don't ever give up on your dreams. But when necessary reroute and attempt to achieve your goals another way. And remember
    "Real ones may fall back but they never fall off!"
