The Numbers Game: Alicia Keys Debuts At #1

Alicia Keys returns to the charts with her 5th album Girl On Fire. I skimmed the album a week or so ago but I don’t think I kept any songs on my iTunes because the album is full of “Girl Power Music”. I also think Alicia Keys isn’t used to her albums doing a little more than 158,000 units in the first week. To compare, she did over 400,000 in ’09 with The Element Of Freedom (And now that I think about it, she didn’t even sell more than Rhi-Rhi did last week). Either way, props to Mrs. Beatz for having the #1 album in the country.
