This week in sales proves the power of R&B and the fading of some of Hip-hop powerhouses.  Ne-Yo’s Year of the Gentleman debuts at #2, moving an impressive 250,600 units this week. Nelly made his return with Brass Knuckles debuting at #3 selling 83,715 albums, a far cry from his first week numbers for Sweat and Suit, his last two albums.  DJ Khaled’s We Global debuted in the Top 10 this week landing at #7 selling 49,570 copies.
