The Numbers Game: Jeezy is #2

Jeezy

Young Jeezy‘s album Seen It All: The Autobiography grabs the #2 spot on the charts this week and it’s a lesson is timing. A couple of weeks ago Wiz Khalifa dropped an album that sold 90,000 copies and grabbed the #1 spot, Jeezy sold 120,000 copies and gets the #2 position on the charts (Maroon 5’s album V got #1 by the way). And while Jeezy sold half as much as his previous album Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition, that’s just the temperature of the whole music industry now. If you haven’t, go ahead and check our album review for Jeezy’s Seen It All: The Autobiography here.

Bob Marley & The Wailers made a big return to the Top 50 this week their iconic album Legend landing at #5. The was mainly due to the Google Play store discounting the title to 99 cents. Add 41,000 to the 11 million copies sold since 1991.
