Mary’s ‘Growing Pains’ Climbs To #1

Published: Thursday 3rd Jan 2008 by Sam
In a rare chart occurrence, Mary J. Blige has seen her ‘Growing Pains’ album rise to #1 on the Billboard 200 this week, following it’s debut at #2. The LP, Blige’s eighth, shifted 204,000 copies – a drop of 68% on her previous week numbers – to clinch the year’s first #1 toppling Josh Groban’s ‘Noel’ in the precess (which slid from #1-#3).

Alicia Keys looks set to extend her amazing chart success into 2008, with her album ‘As I Am’ selling through an impressive 193,000 copies – enough to enable her jump from #3-#2 this week.

After a, somewhat, shaky start with his ‘Exclusive’ project (see: ‘Wall to Wall’), there seems to be no stopping Chris Brown’s sophomore set. The already-certified Platinum LP from the 18 year old climbs from #10-#5 with 87, 000 copies sold.

    Mary did the same thing back in 2003 when she debut at #2 with ( Love and Life ) just behind Hilary Duff ( Metamorphosis ). Then the following week M.J.B overtook H.D and got to number 1.
    Congrats Mary
