Rap mogul SHAWN ‘JAY-Z’ CARTER has reclaimed his crown at the top of the US album charts but sales of his comeback album KINGDOM COME fell just short of the 700,000 estimate.[SOURCE]
The album opened with 680,000 copies sold, giving Jay-Z his biggest sales week ever and the biggest of 2006 by any artist.
It’s the ninth time he has hit the top of the US charts - a statistic that ties with THE ROLLING STONES for the third most number ones.
Only THE BEATLES (19) and ELVIS PRESLEY (10) have had more chart-topping albums.
SNOOP DOGG scores his ninth top 10 album with THE BLUE CARPET TREATMENT, which debuts at five and late rapper TUPAC SHAKUR returns to the top flight - new release PAC’S LIFE enters the chart at number nine.
