Billboard Breakdown – December 14

3. Adele – 21 – 187,379 – You know what time it is. Nothing to see here other than the fact she officially surpassed the 5x platinum mark this week. And in roughly another five or six, she’ll be saying hello to 6x. Just in time for the Grammys.

4. Justin Bieber – Under The Mistletoe – 158,182 – The crazy thing is that this appears to be just a set up type album for his next studio project set to drop next year. And it’ll be platinum before the ball drops in NYC in about two and a half weeks.

5. Amy Winehouse – The Lioness: Hidden Treasures – 113,856 – That number isn’t anything to be ashamed about in the least bit, but I can’t help but shake the feeling it’d be higher.

7. Drake – Take Care – 73,154 – This’ll be platinum just in time for Christmas.

17. The Roots – Undun – 48,189 – To be quite honest, I don’t ever see a point, in the near future at least, that involves rap music without this iconic group. They’ve got their own following and pending this gets to 100K (which it will), that’s a win. Their one of those groups that don’t need to sell a crazy amount of records to remain relevant. At least that’s how I view their career from this armchair A&R’s eyes.  

22. Robin Thicke – Love After War – 41,250 – When Paula Patton’s your wife, there really isn’t much to complain about. The album isn’t bad at all from what I hear, too.

52. Jay-Z & Kanye West – Watch The Throne – 19,745 – Nothing really to say other than respect to Jay and ‘Ye showing love to the homie Hit Boy for giving them their marathon concert record “Niggas In Paris.”

76. Bruno Mars – Doo Wops & Hooligans – 14,844 – I had honestly forgot about this album. That being said, Bruno and the machine behind him promoted this album about the best way possible. Over a million copies sold prove that notion.

129. Mac Miller – Blue Slide Park – 8,817 – Mac’s over 200K sold with mainly nothing but a grassroots buzz and his own hustle. Let that marinate.
