Crank Dat Billboard Chart

Soulja Boy posted strong numbers this week clocking in at #4 with 117,000 copies sold.  That beat out last week's top rap debut as Gorilla Zoe's "Welcome To The Zoo" could only muster up 35,000 sales and a #18 debut.  R&B has ruled the charts on the urban side in the last two weeks with Keyshia Cole making an especially strong debut last week.  Kanye West remains as the only other rapper in the top ten with 92,000 units of "Graduation" moving last week putting him at #8.  50 Cent drops out of the top 10 for those still caught up in the rivalry. 

Soulja Boy's rise to the top will likely  mimic that of another boy, Rich Boy, whose debut album posted magnificent first week sales only to fall off the charts quickly.  To Soulja Boy's credit, his "Soulja Girl" single is catching on more than anything on the Rich Boy album (outside of "Throw Some D's") so he might superman dat hoe and YOOUUUU on the Billboard chart a little while longer.
