The Numbers Game: Saigon, Ginuwine, & Bieber

Three debuts this week:

Justin Bieber‘s remix album for Never Say Never predictably gets the number one spot this week (Thought he would have sold more than 161,000 though). Bieber only gets mentioned here because the” Runaway (remix)” featuring Raekwon & Kanye is on this album (But not with the “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing ta Fuck Wit” beat. Lame.).

While I had no idea that Ginuwine released his album Elgin last week, it did go on to sell 19,000 and grab the #30 spot this week (check the review here).

And finally, Saigon‘s album The Greatest Story Never Told sells 11,000 copies and lands at #61. Seeing as this album has taken years to come out, I’ll admit that I  wish it would have sold a little better. But honestly, this seems about right in expectations.
