Music News ROLO: R&B Music on the Charts!


Hey all! So right now is a good time to be in R&B, for sure. These artists are really stepping up their game and moving these units! Let’s do a Rundown!

First off, according to my sources, Keri Hilson is on pace to debut at #1 next week with sales of 90,000. That is a prediction, but if its true , GO KERI!! I’m glad people are showing her some love!

Kelly Clarkson beat out TheDream for the number one spot two weeks ago for his second album Love vs. Money (if you missed it, read my reivew here) debuted. Dream debuted at #2 but slipped in his second week to #4 with 56,000 albums sold.

Gorilla Zoe’s newest effort, Don’t Feed the Animals makes a decent debut at #8 on the Billboard 200.

Beyonce’s I am…Sasha Fierce slides down one spot to #9, while Jamie Foxx’s Intuition slides one spot down to #10.

– Singer Natalie Cole will headline the 17th annual Capital Jazz Fest (June 5-7; Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland). The R&B and contemporary jazz lineup includes the reunion of the four original members of En Vogue, Leela James, Rahsaan Patterson, Al Jarreau, Marcus Miller, Lalah Hathaway and Pieces of a Dream.

-E1 Music (formerly Koch) has signed singer/songwriter Vivian Green. The first release from her three-album deal is slated for summer 2009. Green previously recorded two albums through Sony: 2002’s Gold-Certified “A Love Story” and 2005’s “Vivian.” I loved her single, Gotta Go from her last album!

All in all, album sales are looking pretty dismal this time of year. As far as singles go,

Soulja Boy & Sammie are riding the wave of their hit song, Kiss Me Though the Phone which is currently #3 on the Billboard 100.

  2. LOL go Keri Hilson. MTV jamz was giving her some good promo. Not jam of the wk but her new song with Kanye might as well have been.

  3. I love Vivian Green! Good to see that she’s coming out with something new, it’s been a minute…
