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."

WOW, not long ago a lot of people were doubting Jay as the president of Def Jam. Now that he is successful people will start hopping back on the bandwagon.

True statement. Bobby Brown could be ceo, sh*t you pretty much set. As long as the albums have promotion you can sit back in your big a*s executive chair and collect money

She really isn't. Lauryn Hill (except for that last performance at the BET awards), Jill Scott, Mariah Carey, etc.... those are good singers. She is just a pretty face with a bareable singing voice.

jada nice and all...but just like bleek..he will never blow....jadakiss and memph are not presented and promoted 2 the white world enough..thats the reason they never go platinum..there is not enough minorties 2 purchase these albums..due to poverty and bootleggin..Real Talk people..1
