It seems fitting that the Empire soundtrack grabbed the #1 spot this week since the season finale comes on TV tonight. Not only is it the top album in the country but it also beat out Madonna’s latest album for that position. I guess people really do like “Drip Drop”. The Original Soundtrack from Season 1 of Empire sells 130,000 copies in it’s first week.
It took nearly 30 years, but the Beastie Boys‘ debut album Licensed To Ill has finally reached Diamond status. Licensed To Ill joins other 10 million Hip-Hop sellers like OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, Notorious B.I.G.’s Life After Death, Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP, & 2Pac’s All Eyez On Me.
