    This week we see a new chart-topper arrive, the New York rapper who takes on that southern style, A$AP Rocky. Rocky's debut album, Long.Live.A$AP did surprisingly well. We see albums leak all the time-- usually it's just a week prior to the album's release though. In Rocky's case, we saw it leak a month early. However, Rocky continued doing promo and dropping singles, not worrying about the album leak or bumping his release date up. And it worked out well for him, he still sold a large amount of copies, and landed #1 on the Billboard 200.

    On Charts Don't Lie this week we familiar faces, along with one that may seem completely random: Flo Rida. We'll get to that one in a minute. As for the regulars, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis see their best chart peak this week since they debuted at #2, with a leap from #16 to #4. Once more, it seems like promotion is on the rapper and producer's side, as an appearance on Saturday Night Live seems to have given a boost, perhaps not only to their single "Thrift Shop," but also to their album.

    Seattle is trying desperately to bring basketball back to their city, and a group led by billionaire Chris Hansen is putting up serious cash to entice the NBA in relocating the Sacramento Kings to Seattle where they will be the second iteration of the Supersonics.  Losing their basketball team is a sore spot for Seattle NBA fans as their Seattle Supersonics left in 2008 to become the Oklahoma City T

    French Montana joins Charts Don't Lie this week, with his debut album Excuse My French. French, Diddy and the whole Bad Boy team went hard with promo for this one, rounded up the biggest features in the game, but the album wasn't able to move more than 50k opening week. With the decrease of hip-hop album sales forever waning, this isn't horrible, but it isn't the "classic" numbers French may have been expecting.

    Artists who performed at the Grammys or (better yet?) won an award, gained more than just the honor—they gained new fans, perhaps reached a wider audience than usual and thus increased sales of their music. Over the past week, overall album sales increased 17%, which is due in part to the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, but also, Valentine’s Day-- lest we forget the extremely commercialized holiday. There were definitely some urban artists who benefited from

    This week on Charts Don't Lie some of the less consistent rappers have fallen off, while others prove they're on the charts for the long-term. We already knew Justin Timberlake would be here awhile, after he went platinum in very little time following his album's debut. However, there are some chart main-stays which we couldn't have predicted when the album initially dropped-- such as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' The Heist.
