The Numbers Game: Maybach Music Group & R. Kelly

Maybach Music Group‘s second compilation Self Made Vol. 2 debuts on the charts this week at #4. This is a win for Ross & company for a few reasons. The most important one being that while Self Made Vol. 1 is a stronger album, Vol. 2 still sold more over 40,000 units more in its first week.

R. Kelly’s 11th album Write Me Back comes in on the charts at #5 and sells 67,000 copies. Uh, for whatever reason, I read some things but I haven’t heard a track off the album. *shrugs*
