The first week sales tallies for Mary J. Blige's "The London Sessions" and The Wu-Tang Clan's "A Better Tomorrow" have arrived.
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.
Blige barely cracked the top ten, ending up at number nine with 55,000 copies sold, eking out the 13th top ten album of her career. RZA and his Wu-Gambinos fared much worse, debuting at number 27 and moving only 21,573 copies. Meanwhile, Shady XV fell 15 spots to number 18 and Hood Billionaire fell 24 spots to 30.
