Z-Ro - Meth album coverIt was a slow day for new releases on the Billboard 200, but legendary pop singer Tony Bennett achieved a big feat … topping the chart with his first #1 album, making the 85-year old the oldest living act to reach #1 with his Duets II LP.

A few slots down, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV descends from #3 to #5 with 84,000 sold in its fourth week, taking his album to just shy of 1.4 million to date.

Teen R&B quartet, Mindless Behavior, lands in the top 10. Their debut set, #1 Girl, opens at #7, selling 36,000 copies in its first week. The group is set to hit the road with the Scream tour, featuring Diggy and New Boyz, beginning September 30 in Augusta, Georgia.

Closing out the top 10, and top tier is Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne, landing at #9 this week with 31,000 sold. To date, the LP has sold 902,000 copies.

Much later down the rankings is the latest from Houston veteran, Z-Ro. His album Meth, the latest in his “drug” series, opens at #85 with 5,400 copies sold. He previously released Crack, Cocaine and Heroin. This is the fourth album, which features Willie D, Yo Gotti and Slim Thug.

That wraps things up this week. To cop any of these new releases, head over to Amazon.com.

According to Billboard.com, overall album sales in this past chart week (ending Sept. 25) totaled 5.28 million units, down 5% compared to the sum last week (5.58 million) and up 5% compared to the comparable sales week of 2010 (5.03 million).

  1. Mindless
    Behavior one of the hottest up and coming young boy band quartets in the music
    industry with rising record sales surpassing the 200,000 mark and millions of fans
    that go screaming crazy over them. Mindless Behavior has become the first
    non-rap group to hit the top 10 since 2005. Prodigy the most talented in the
    group and lead singer has mad swag dance moves reminiscent of James to Chris
    Brown to Michael Jackson.  Back up
    harmonizers in the group are Princeton, Roc Royal, and Ray Ray known as Pretty
    Boy, who  also demonstrates artistic
    talent portrayed in some of the drawings and art work displayed on MB’s album
    covers. Keisha Gamble their wardrobe manager has done a fantastic job dressing
    the quartet in graphic futuristic designer clothes ranging from custom jackets
    and suits to fashion designer jeans and boots. Executive Producers Walter
    Milsap and Vincent Herbert are currently managing the group who recently
    completed a UK tour. Previous tours with Justin Bieber, Backstreet Boys, Janet Jackson,
    and Nicole Scherzinger and their recent Scream Tour revealed sold out ticket
    sales. This hot young teen group drives the girls screaming wild with a steady growing
    fan base ranging from young to older fans.  Refreshing to see such young boys in the music
    industry who are so humble, polite and mindful of causes such as No Bullying, Good
    Grades in School, and Breast Cancer Awareness. 
    Mindless Behavior one of the Hottest Young Boy Band Quartet Groups in
    2012 will no doubt in the months ahead be coming out with more mind blowing
    music driving their fans wild.
