It’s a quiet week on the Billboard 200 albums chart, with Beyonce remaining atop the list with her latest set, 4; while Lloyd makes his presence on the top 10.
4 continues to reign at #1 for a second week, selling 115,000 to take her total to over 426,000 copies.
Eminem and Royce Da 5’9’s Bad Meet Evil album, Hell: The Sequel, climbs back to #5 with 35,000 this week; Jill Scott’s Light of the Sun slips to #7 with 32,000 sold; and Big Sean’s Finally Famous: The Album falls from #3 to #9 this week with 26,000 copies sold.
The highest debut on the albums chart this week comes from R&B singer Lloyd, who lands at #10 with King of Hearts, selling 26,000 copies in its opening week. It’s his third top 10 set, following 2008’s Lessons in Love, which debuted and peaked at #7 with 51,000 to start. Apparently, according to Billboard.com, Lloyd’s new album is the lone debut within the top 40 of the Billboard 200.
