Recovery Sold 89,182 Copies This Week

As expected, Linkin Park debuted number one this week as their new "A Thousand Suns" album sold over 250,000 copies in it's first week in stores while R&B star Trey Songz also had a nice debut week as his "Passion Pain & Pleasure" album only missed LP by a few thousand units. Eminem, of course, came in 3rd with an increase of 10% in sales of his "Recovery" album from last week (putting him at around 90,000 this week alone and a total around 2.75 million already, almost triple platinum in the United States already).

Drake only drops one spot this week as his debut "Thank Me Later" album, which he recently said he could have done better with it, took the 15th spot with just over 19 thousand copies sold (up 9% from last week) while Usher is right behind him with his new "Versus" album selling 12% more this week and landing in 16th. Rick Ross only drops one spot but manages to sell 9% more than last week, Usher's "Raymond vs Raymond" gained 3 spots to 26th due to it selling 24% more this past week than the week before and B.o.B moved up a spot to 36th with 13% more in sales (just under 10k). Finishing up this week's sales is the Black Eyed Peas taking the 45th spot moving down 9 spots (to 45th) and losing 15% in sales.
