The chart-topping R&B superstar Omarion is ringing in 2007 with the year’s first #1 album, 21. The performer’s second solo album (and first on Columbia Records) is entering the Billboard Top 200 best-selling albums chart at #1, with release-to-date sales of 120,463, according to SoundScan. 21 also debuts at #1 this week on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. With 21, Omarion’s second solo album, entering both the Top 200 and the R&B sales charts at #1 simultaneously, the contemporary R&B powerhouse becomes one of a select group of artists to have achieved back-to-back #1 debuts on both charts with two consecutive albums. When his debut album, O, debuted at #1 on both charts in February 2005, Omarion (who’d risen to stardom while still in his teens as a frontman for the groundbreaking urban “boy band” B2K) became recognized as an important new voice in contemporary R&B and hip-hop. The music on 21 was created by Omarion to celebrate, and reflect on, turning 21 late last year.
