The Numbers Game: DJ Khaled, TLC, & Katy Perry


Nothing earth shattering happened this week in terms of album sales but we did get a couple of debuts.

DJ Khaled‘s latest compilation Suffering From Success debuts at #7 and basically sell what all his previous albums sold (Maybe even lower but I’m not gonna check). I’m assuming that we won’t review this album because, uh, whatever.

TLC‘s greatest hits album 20 dropped last week and lands at #12 off the strength of that VH1 movie. I say that because this is their 4th greatest hits album.

I included Katy Perry and her #1 album Prism in The Numbers Game this week because I sometimes like looking at her. Out.
