    The Grammys always have their share of memorable performances, and the 56th annual awards will certainly be no different. We'll be updating with performances as they happen. Among those set to take the stage are Beyonce, Jay Z, Robin Thicke, Pharrell, Daft Punk, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and many more. So far, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have been dominating the rap-related awards taking home best rap album, best rap song, and best new artist. It's possible he may take home album of the year as well, while Kendrick Lamar remains empty-handed.

    This week the charts remained relatively calm, with no hip-hop new-comers to speak of yet. However, Ty Dolla $ign recently dropped his new Beach House EP, so we'll have to see how well that does sales-wise next week. This past week was Kid Ink's second week on the Billboard 200, and while he wasn't able to maintain a spot within the top 20 of the Billboard 200, he was pretty close, dropping to #21 after a #3 debut. Although Ink is signed to RCA, this is his debut effort and while he's pushing towards the mainstream, he hasn't quite broken down the barrier yet.

    Billboard has released its 2014 "Power 100" list, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Jay Z and Beyonce were given the #1 spot on this list. This comes after the power couple earned the #1 spot of Forbes' Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples list. Obviously money and power are connected.

    This week we welcome a new entry on Charts Don't Lie, Kid Ink. Kid Ink is a prime example of a rapper who took his internet fame way past the internet. The Alumni rapper is now signed to a major label, and was able to successfully release his debut album My Own Lane-- he actually surpassed the sales projections of 40-45k. Ink sold a respectable 50k, which isn't too shabby for an artist who is not quite mainstream yet, although it's only a matter of time until he gets there.

    Beyonce has seen both praise and criticism for her proclaimed feminism, but her latest self-titled project generally saw more of the former. Bey has now taken her feminist views off record, with the decision to pen an essay for journalist Maria Shriver's publication, "The Shriver Report". Yonce's article is titled "Gender Equality is a Myth!", and finds her addressing the overlooked gender issues in North American society.

    There aren't very many changes in this week's Charts Don't Lie compared to last week. The main list of artists has remained the same, as we have yet to receive any new rap or r'n'b debuts on the Billboard 200, although Kid Ink's debut album My Own Lane will begin charting in the near future. Ink's RCA album is projected to move a solid 40-45k, which will land him within the top 3.

    Blue Ivy Carter celebrated her second birthday in spectacular fashion this past Tuesday (1/7). Jay Z and Beyonce decided to rent out Miami’s Jungle Island, which is an amusement park that includes a wildlife park and botanical garden, for their daughter’s once-in-a-lifetime occasion. Park officials are keeping their costs under wraps, but it's gotta be pretty damn pricey to close down the entire park. Look at it this way, the VIP safari tour for just one person costs $240.

    With the holiday season winding down, we're still seeing the affect it had on the charts and the sales. It seems like almost everyone on today's Charts round-up had an increase in sales and a rise up the Billboard 200 in the past seven days except for B.o.B. Unfortunately, Underground Luxury does not seem to be taking off in any way, and although it was released in time to give as a Christmas gift, it apparently wasn't. For his second week on the charts Bobby Ray sold 19,000 units, and dropped to #30.

    Beyonce's self-titled visual album took the world by storm in recent weeks, as the new mother showed off her curves and her voice throughout the LP. While the BeyHive fans were definitely pleased by the project, which has gone on to receive platinum certification from the RIAA, NASA is displeased with Bey because of a soundbite included in her "XO" record.

    Beyonce has quickly gone platinum, after releasing Beyonce to great fanfare just two weeks ago. The numbers are pretty well-known by now, the album sold 617,000 units opening week, while moving 80,000 in three hours on iTunes alone. The visual album landed at #1 on the Billboard 200, where it is expected to stay for its second week on the charts. In her second week out, the album moved 383,000 units, which now includes physical copies of the CD. No doubt, Christmas shopping can be thanked for many of her sales.

    The past week brought Christmas, which undoubtedly brought sales in all departments, music or otherwise. However not all hip-hop artists were lucky enough to benefit from this Christmas season. Although B.o.B released his album Underground Luxury just in time to enjoy some holiday giving, his album fell completely flat, managing to debut at #22 this week on the Billboard 200, moving only 35k. Compare this to Strange Clouds which did 76k, or better yet, his debut album which moved 84k opening week, and it looks like Bobby Ray's fan base is waning.

    Last week we discussed the new effort from Beyonce which made waves in the internet over night, selling an astounding 80,000 units in just three hours. Apart from breaking an iTunes record, the album is well on its way to platinum, following the #newrules of her husband Jay Z. Bey surpassed her past record for first week sales, and it's possible that she'll maintain the #1 spot two weeks in a row-- a feat Jay Z accomplished with MCHG as well.

    Looks like her self-titled moment wasn't the only spontaneous gesture Beyonce had up her sleeve. The R&B diva hit up a Wal-Mart in Tewksbury, Massachusetts Friday to surprise shoppers with a generous offer. Yonce announced her holiday donation over the store's PA system. “For everyone in the store right now, the first $50 of your holiday gifts are on me,” she said, before handing out gift cards to 750 shoppers. Mrs. Carter also took the time to wander the aisles and greet fans during her visit. Take a look at some of the footage of the event below.

    Beyonce beat the system with the unexpected drop of her fifth, self-titled album, which shocked the internet, the media and music fans alike. Although B's team had recently told us to expect an album soon, (Ne-Yo almost ruined the surprise as well), no one suspected it would happen this soon.

    It was already projected to be a big week for Beyonce, and now the final sales figures have been revealed. Not only is Beyonce the singer's biggest debut on the charts, it also set the record for most US iTunes sales in one week with 617,000 sold. Worldwide, Bey was actually able to move 828,773 copies of the album, but her US numbers are what will get the official tally. Previous to the self-titled record, Beyonce's highest first week sales were for her sophomore album, B'Day, which moved 541,000 in its first seven days.
