The Numbers Game: Linkin Park, Jennifer Lopez, & Mary J. Blige

Well, it’s one of those weeks where we got a few notable releases (Notable to me at least) and I have no interest in listening to neither of them. I also had no idea that Linkin Park was still actively making music so it’s surprising that their new album The Hunting Part is the #3 album this week (I use to fuck with Hybrid Theory though).

Two R&B/Pop divas also made their returns to the charts this week (Separately of course). Jennifer Lopez‘s 8th album A.K.A. lands at #8 (32,900) and Mary J. Blige‘s album/soundtrack Think Like A Man Too grabs the #30 spot (8,600).

Lana Del Rey & Sam Smith also had albums hit the charts this week but I’m short on time and the numbers are below. Peace.
