The Numbers Game: Slaughterhouse Debuts

Slaughterhouse‘s Slaughterhouse EP debuts on the charts this week at #147, which when you think about it isn’t really that bad. Seeing that it was only a 6 song EP that was basically released to fulfill the group’s E1 contract, 5,000 in sales isn’t that bad at all. Now we wait for their Shady debut.

Did you notice that the Black Eyed Peas‘ album The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies) shot up 21 spots? And not their newest one The Beginning that sits at #14; that means they have two albums in the Top 20. Playing the Super Bowl halftime show has it privileges.

It looks like both T.I.‘s No Mercy & R. Kelly‘s Love Letter will in fact go Gold. Rihanna‘s Loud will also get a Platinum plaque.

Next week we’ll see what Saigon‘s The Greatest Story Never Told will do in term of sales (It’s already grabbed a #1 spot on iTunes).
