The Numbers Game: The-Dream Is #2

thedream31909

The-Dream’s sophomore album Love Vs. Money debuts at #2 and outsells U2’s new album, No Line On The Horizon. Wow. I guess I’m surprised because I always thought The-Dream’s music was sometimes corny (“I Luv Your Girls” was catchy, but still…). I’m happy for the guy and I’m not going to go as far as call him Hamburglar because (As other sites call him), but I guess I don’t see the big deal. Congrats all the same.

J. Holiday debuts at #4 with his new album Round 2. I would be lying if I said I can identify 1 song of his new album. Hey, didn’t The-Dream write his song “Bed”? That’s all I have. Moving on…

Also making a debut this week is Brother Ali with his new album The Truth Is Here at #119. I’m sad to see it here because we didn’t have time in the schedule to review this album. It’s not a bad listen and you probably should check it out.

And lastly, Rihanna finally falls out of Top 50. After 92 weeks, Rihanna’s Good Girl Gone Bad does not make the Top 50. I feel like a dynasty is over. Peace.
