The Numbers Game: Day26 Is #2 & Jadakiss Stays At It

thenumbersgame

I’m a make it brief this week. In all honesty, most of Hip-Hop is waiting for next week sales figures to come in for  Asleep In The Bread Aisle and Deeper Than Rap. One surprise I did get this week was Day26’s sophomore album, Forever In A Day, getting the #2 spot and moving over 100,000 units. I guess all the fighting and crying they did on Making The Band 4 paid off huh? The only other notable debut this week is from Pastor Troy with Feel Me Or Kill Me. If I had a nickel for every time someone asked us to review this album, I would have no nickles. Troy did sell over 4,000 copies of his latest album so somebody out there cares. And who the hell is buying Jennifer Hudson albums? She went for #103 to #42 in one week. What happened?
