The Pussycat Dolls, Jazmine Sullivan and Joe all debuted in the top 10 this week on the Billboard Top 200.
According to the Nieslen SoundScan, The Pussycat Dolls led by Nicole Sherzinger moved an estimated 74,000 units with Doll Domination earning it the No. 5 spot on the charts. The album took off with help from the popular female friendly lead single “When I Grow Up.”
Jazmine Sullivan’s debut album Fearless checked in at No. 6 selling an estimated 65,000 copies on the strength of her hit reggae fused single “Need U Bad.”
The new songstress partnered with Missy Elliott for the track and in a recent interview told SOHH exclusively, “I’ve known her since I was 13-14. She’s really been like a mentor to me. You know just always there and always supporting and ready to lend her talents.”
Multi-grammy nominated artist Joe also returned to the music scene with his seventh LP Joe Thomas, New Man. Joe’s new project debuted two spots behind Sullivan in the No. 8 spot. This album was Joe’s first on the indie label Kedar Entertainment.
