T.I. Makes Chart History

Published: Friday 10th Oct 2008 by Sam
T.I. Makes Chart History Rapper T.I. dominates the charts this week on multiple fronts. The Atlanta native’s latest Long Play effort ‘Paper Trail’ stormed to the top the Billboard 200 chart with a whopping 568,000 copies sold in its first week – the highest selling debut of his career.
Elsewhere, his collaboration with Rihanna ‘Live Your Life’ breaks the record for the biggest chart jump on the Billboard Hot 100 – soaring #80-#1 – due to a surge in digital sales. Interestingly, the song unseats his ‘Whatever You Like’ from the top spot – itself breaking records 6 weeks ago after leaping #71-#1. The last artist to achieve such a feat was Usher in 2004 – with ‘Burn’ topping ‘Yeah’ on the same chart.
The week’s 2nd highest debut came from American Idol Alumni Jennifer Hudson, whose self titled debut landed at #2 – selling through an impressive 217,000. {Source}
More power to them both.

    Well Done I guess, but I don’t rate T.I as a rapper, I THINK HE IS S***
    AND BOTH RECORDS HE PUT OUT ARE RUBBISH, INFACT HIM, LIL WAYNE AND KANYE WEST ARE ALL ON THE SAME LEVEL, OVERRATED RAPPERS, WHO MAKE F****** CRAP RECORDS AND DO WELL BUT THAT DOESN’T MAKE THEM GOOD, HIP HOP IS PURE S*** THESE DAYS
