The Numbers Are In…: Future Lands First #1 On Billboard 200 With ‘DS2′

futurefb thatgrapejuice

It looks like third time’s the charm for Atlantan rapper Future.

For, after seeing his first two studio efforts bow in the Billboard 200’s top 10 upon their respective debuts, his third album – ‘DS2′ (in stores now) – has taken the tally’s perch.

Despite forecasts indicating the ‘Move That Dope’ rapper’s project would move less than 100k units its first week, the set has proven naysayers wrong by almost doubling its initial prediction.

See the official numbers below:

From The Vault: R. Kelly & Jay-Z – Fiesta

From The Vault this week journeys back to the beginning of the new millennium with a party-anthem – the aptly titled ‘Fiesta’ by R. Kelly and Jay-Z.

Released in 2001 in remixed form, ‘Fiesta’ was the third single from Kellz’ fourth studio album TP-2.com which saw the light of day the previous year. Joining the two heavyweights was Hip-Hop duo Boo & Gotti.

Commercially, the track hit #1 on the Hip-Hop/R&B tally and #6 on the Hot 100, and is believed to be the catalyst for R. and Hova’s ‘Best Of Both Worlds’ joint LP released a year later
The video for the cut was directed by Little X alongside R. Kelly and was set on a tropical beach full of scantily-clad ladies roused and ready to keep the party going.
With murmurs of joints albums for both R. Kelly and Jay-Z respectively with fan Trey Songz and wife Beyonce, we must say that we’re all for projects as such. Whether considered a side project like Pink’s You+Me and Damon Albarn’s Gorillaz or a continuation of the artists involved’s sound like Lucy Pearl – fronted by Raphael Saadiq – and Chris Brown and Tyga’s ‘Fan Of A Fan’, we feel it is a great way to refresh one’s brand by giving something unique especially in an industry where being confined in a box is the norm.
Hopefully the future will see more talented artists like Robert and Shawn get together to create undeniable jams like this.

It’s been fifteen years since singer/actress/poetess Jill Scott took her first promenade up charts with ‘A Long Walk,’ ‘Getting in the Way,’ and ‘He Loves Me’ all found aboard her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Who Is Jill Scott?’

Fast forward to 2015 and the songstress is still hot as ever – a feat verified by her newly released album ‘Woman’ (her first since 2011’s chart-topping ‘The Light of the Sun’). Kicked off by singles ‘You Don’t Know’ and the R&B hit ‘Fool’s Gold’ (currently #3 on R&B charts), the project – like her releases that have preceded it – is being lauded by critics as one of the year’s “must haves.”
