The Numbers Game: Plies Readies For Gold

Even though Weezy push over the 2 million mark in album sales this week, I just couldn’t bring myself to put his picture in this column again (It’s been like 4 weeks out of 7!). Is Plies a good alternative? Not really, but what can you do. The man has a great chance of doing what G-Unit won’t do this fiscal year; go Gold. No noteworthy debuts this week either. The releases for The Game, Jeezy, and T.I. look so far away right now. Let’s look at the numbers…

#5 Lil’ Wayne/Tha Carter III (Last Week: #5) – 80,000 ; Total: 2,100,000 (2X Platinum) [8 Weeks]
#10 Nas/Untitled (Last Week: #8) – 41,000 ; Total: 290,000 [3 Weeks]
#12 Rhianna/Good Girl Gone Bad (Last Week: #11) – 34,000; Total: 1,551,000 (Platinum) [61 Weeks]
#24 Usher/Here I Stand (Last Week: #18) – 18,000; Total: 949,000 (Gold) [9 Weeks]
#29 Plies/Definition Of Real (Last Week: #27) – 16,000; Total: 434,000 [8 Weeks]
#31 David Banner/The Greatest Story Ever Told (Last Week: #20) – 15,000; Total: 88,000 [3 Weeks]
#32 Chris Brown/Exclusive (Last Week: #37) – 15,000; Total: 1,725,000 (Platinum) [39 Weeks]
