The Numbers Game: The Roots

The Roots

It feels funny that The Roots‘ new album …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin is the main debut this week. Mainly because I think The Roots haven’t cared about album sales in a minute. Either way, the house band for The Tonight Show released their 11th album last week and now occupy the 11th spot on the charts with roughly 20,000 units in sales. Also, check out our great review of …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin here.
