The Numbers Game: Weezy steals the show, Trey holds, and some shocking slips


A coupla things to note. Yes, Weezy has the #2 album, but this is a soul site, we can’t have him all plastered up there right? So we went with Trey who’s maintaining his #7 spot. John Legend & The Roots actually slipped. For me, that’s fighting with Fantasia’s 13 spot drop for the biggest shocks for this weeks numbers game. I think that while labels are spending less and less on promotion, it’s definitely affecting the bottom line. There is some great music out there and the numbers don’t reflect that at all. I’m starting to get depressed just talking about it. Let’s get into the numbers and see what happens next week with the next crop of debuts for next week.
