The Numbers Game: John Legend & The Roots

Well, it looks like The Roots (with the assist from John Legend) scored their second Top 10 debut album this year. Yea, Wake Up! didn’t crack 100,000 in first week sells, but for an album that consists of 1960’s & 1970’s soul music, 63,000 is pretty good. Update: Added the numbers for Ski Beatz‘s 24 Hour Karate School.
