    It's no accident that most festival lineups are announced in the dead of winter. The thought of seeing your favorite artists performing on a beautiful summer day seems so unattainable during the miserably cold season that buying tickets to an event 6 months away seems like your only escape.

    This week on Charts Don't Lie we see the Christmas spirit in effect, as Mariah Carey's 1994 album Merry Christmas soars back up the charts. We're also seeing a relatively quick decent for the MMG boss Rick Ross, and a relatively low debut for his counterpart Omarion. Wu-Tang Clan arrive on the charts with A Better Tomorrow receiving around 25k streams and sales, although they get one-upped by Ms. Mary J. Blige who did 57k with her album The London Sessions.

    Last week, the two biggest albums to be released in the hip-hop/R&B sphere came from NYC-based '90s heavyweights. First off, Mary J. Blige dropped her invigorating, British-themed project The London Sessions, and then The Wu-Tang Clan finally freed their first album since 2007's 8 Diagrams, A Better Tomorrow, and now we have the first week sales for both.

    Since dropping What's The 411? in 1992, Mary J. Blige has gone on to release eleven more albums, cementing herself as one of R&B's biggest stars. On December 2nd, she'll bring that album tally to thirteen with The London Sessions, a project recorded entirely in the UK. Enlisting some fresh-faced, local talent, Blige tapped Sam Smith to co-write four tracks, British soul singer Emeli Sandé to co-write two, and dance duo Disclosure to produce "Right Now" and "Follow."

    R. Kelly isn't known for his subtlety, and despite many criticisms this year, the follow up to his over-the-top 2013 album, Black Panties, will likely not find Kells taking a more reserved approach. The album, which he revealed in an interview with V magazine will be called White Panties, has been promised to be on a "whole other level".

    Mary J. Blige is still the woman to call when you want a soulful R&B hook, as evidenced by her work last year with Kendrick Lamar and Meek Mill. If you're looking for financial advice however, you may want to look elsewhere.
