It may have debuted with so so sales two weeks ago, but it seems Mary J. Blige‘s latest LP ‘My Life II: The Journey Continues‘ is unprepared to give up the ghost just yet.
For, in what will come as a pleasant surprise to many in her fan base, as of this chart week the album has sold more copies than Rihanna‘s latest project, Talk That Talk‘.
Full story below…
With a sales decline of 67% since last week, Rihanna‘s ‘Talk‘ moved a measly 64,286 copies in the US this week placing it at #7 while Blige‘s ‘My Life’ comes in at #5 selling 71,530 units in the last seven days.
This of course is bad news for Island Def Jam who two weeks ago watched Fenty miss out on scoring a #1 album for the sixth consecutive time, despite the success of the project’s lead single ‘We Found Love‘.
Elsewhere on the chart, Adele‘s ‘21‘ holds court at #2 with 145,215 units moved while Drake‘s ‘Take Care’ remains at #4 after selling an impressive 89, 469 copies in the last seven days, pushing its total sales well above the 900,000 mark less than a month since its release.
If it continues to sell consistently, it will without a doubt surpassed the 1 million copies sold barrier in less than three weeks time.
Congratulations to all!
