DJ Khaled, TLC Rule on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums

by Khaled and TLC have landed high on Billboard‘s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums with their respective albums this week.

According to the publication, the rapper’s newly released disc, Suffering from Success opens at #2 on the chart with 27,000 copies sold. This marks the Miami DJ’s eighth consecutive top 10 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, making him the fifth artist to achieve that feat.  Khaled is now tied with Mary J. Blige, Scarface and Cam’Ron with eight consecutive top-10 appearances each, while Jay Z leads with 11.

Meanwhile, TLC’s  compilation album, 20, leaped from the #18 slot to #4. The sales surge follows their  biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, which premiered last week on VH1.  The set sold an additional 20,000 copies,  a 280 percent sales increase in the last seven days.  It’s the group’s first appearance in the chart’s top ten since their last studio album, 3D, peaked at #4 in 2002.

Elsewhere, Drake’s Nothing was the Same spends its fourth week atop the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums list, while Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 slips to #3.
