The Numbers Game: Ludacris Is #1

Even though I’m not the biggest fan of Battle Of The Sexes, congrats are still in order for Ludacris as he not only gets the #1 spot on this week’s charts, but he also gains his fourth #1 album of his career. Add on that “How Low” has sold over a million copies. And then add on that he recently became the first rapper to appear in five number one hits on the Billboard charts. All this equals a great start for Luda this year. If you haven’t, be sure to check out Saule Wright’s review of Battle Of The Sexes here.

I’m mad cause I’ve still haven’t gave Gorillaz‘s Plastic Beach a good listen. When I do (If it’s in a timely manner), be prepared for a FFWD. Gorillaz enter at #2 this week.

And lastly the Kidz In The Hall make it on that charts with Land Of Make Believe and land at #187. This is a good thing because they didn’t make the Top 200 on the last album (The In Crowd). Checked out my review of Land Of Make Believe here.

And I’ll let the numbers take us out of here…
