    This week we're finding several new entries in the Billboard 200, although nothing took over the #1 spot. Keyshia Cole actually comes out on top this week, debuting at #9, moving 25,000 copies opening week. Her album dropped around the same time she got in the news for assaulting a Cash Money employee, which leads us to ask, publicity stunt or nah?. Tinashe competed with Keyshia, although she...

    What most music fans don’t know is that a major record label deal is not guaranteed change in your pocket. A recording contract is essentially a legal agreement which allows the record label to exploit an artist’s work through recorded material. This includes the album’s release, promotion, marketing, sales… you name it. The price tag set on the deal merely highlights the...

    This week we only have one new entry so to speak of, and it's r'n'b/pop singer Jennifer Hudson with her newly-released JHUD. The album didn't do very much damage on the charts, but it still enters within the Billboard's top 10. Chris Brown, though, is still moving more than JHUD with his album X's second week on shelves. The album saw a four-spot this week, bringing total sales closer to the...

    Long viewed as an art form mired in chauvinism and bravado, hip hop is in the midst of ‘gender-fication’ with an upheaval in how we view, listen, and consume the music.  Talking about your glock while holding your cock, is no longer limited to male rappers.  Nicki Minaj has taken rap, pop and R&B by storm, and melded it into her own cornucopia of pop-synth other-worldly...

    Prince has a crazy number of albums under his belt, and a loyal following at that. After taking a four-year break, he returned this year with not one, but two new albums. He put them out at the same time, and managed to move units on each, with each debuting within Billboard 200's top 10. While Prince's popularity may not be as high as it once was, there's still a fanbase there. It would be...

    This week we see one new entry below, belonging to October's Very Own's PARTYNEXTDOOR. The r'n'b singer is relatively new, having released his first official mixtape PARTYNEXTDOOR just last summer. Nonetheless, he's already developed quite the loyal following, undoubtedly due (in part) to his affiliation with Drizzy. The Toronto singer has been able to move a solid 15k, almost 16k, since his...

    We're currently awaiting first week sale numbers for Jeezy's new album, Seen It All, which is supposed to move around 90k-100k. Even though these are just projections at the moment, it's extremely unlikely The Snowman will be able to beat the sales of his last album TM:103 Hustlerz Ambition, which moved 233,000 copies when it dropped three years ago. We'll wait to analyze those numbers once Seen...

    Eminem's new album, Marshall Mathers LP 2, officially hits stores tomorrow. The lead singles he's dropped thus far have left fans with opposing views-- some stand by their fierce support of Em, while others wish the old drug-addled rapper would return. No matter what you're opinion may be, one thing is for certain, and that's that Eminem knows how to reach the mainstream ("The Monster"), as well...
