Jay-Z scored his 10th No. 1 album on the U.S. pop album charts Wednesday, a feat that ties the rapper with Elvis Presley in second place for the most trips to the top.

The Beatles lead with 19 chart-toppers, and the Rolling Stones are now fourth.

Jay-Z's "American Gangster" -- a disc inspired by the Denzel Washington-Russell Crowe gangster movie -- sold 425,000 copies in the week ended November 12, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Its tally fell far short of the 680,000-unit start for his previous release, "Kingdom Come," in November 2006.

Since 1998, all eight of Jay-Z's solo studio albums have hit No. 1, in addition to his "Collision Course" project with Linkin Park and his "Unfinished Business" collaboration with R. Kelly.
