Jay-Z Hits No. 1 on Billboards 200

Jay-Z beat the Eagles and Britney Spears for the number one spot on The Billboard 200.

Jay-Z’s “American Gangster” (Def Jams) is his 10th album to hit the No. 1 spot. His album sold 425,000 copies in the United States alone. The rapper ties Elvis Presley in second place for the most No. 1 albums on the chart; only the Beatles have had more, with 19.

After being at the No. 1 spot, the Eagles moved down to No. 2 by only selling 359,000 copies, a 49% decrease. And Garth Brooks album, “The Ultimate Hits”, debuts at No. 3 with 352,000 copies sold.

A shocker, Britney’s album dropped down to No. 7 with only 87,000 copies sold.
