Aug 11 - President Jay-Z Scores For Def Jam w/ 3 Top 5 Billboard Albums
 

 


Def Jam Records has made history by placing three albums on the Billboard 200's Top 5 this week.

In its 17th week on the charts, Mariah Carey's The Emancipation Of Mimi has landed at #3 with 99,000 units sold; according to Nielsen's Soundscan. The CD is quickly approaching the 3 million mark and is nearly five times platinum worldwide. Right behind, Young Jeezy's Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101 has sold 85,288 CDs to earn the #4 spot in its second week. Lastly, newcomer Teairra Mari debuted in the #5 position with Roca-A-Fella Presents…Teairra Mari. According to Soundscan, the album sold 68,777 copies in its first week.

Meanwhile, Def Jam has also made history by holding singles in Billboard Hot 100's #1 and #2 positions for the fourth consecutive week. Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together," the singer's 16th #1 single, stands in the first slot and Rihanna's Dancehall-inspired "Pon De Replay" follows at #2.

"This is a very exciting time for us at IDJ," stated Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, President & CEO of Def Jam Recordings. "We are breaking new artists and having a great time doing it. I feel like we are just starting to click on all cylinders."
