Day26 Nose Dives on This Weeks Billboard 200, Ross Lands At Top Spot

Bad Boy R&B group Day26, who battled Miley Cyrus’ ‘Hannah Montana’ for the top spot on the Billboard 200 last week has taken a huge dive this week. The “Making the Band 4” star’s new album “Forever in a Day” slides six spots from No. 2 to 8 with 37,000 units sold, a 67% drop from last weeks 113,000 copies sold. “Forever In A Day” is the group’s sophomore effort and follows last year’s self titled debut which moved 190,000 in the first week. “Before we actually started recording we told ourselves that we’re not even going to think about a sophomore curse,” the group tells Singersroom in an exclusive interview. “We just knew we were going to be about going in and making good music. In my opinion, not to sound arrogant or conceited, I feel like we put together a great album.” Day26 is currently on their “26 Days of Day26” tour, which will make rounds through each of the group members’ hometowns, as well as major cities including New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Chicago in support of “Forever In A Day.” In other chart news, rapper Rick Ross’ third effort lands him at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with “Deeper Than Rap,” shifting 158,000 in its first week. His last set, 2008’s “Trilla,” bowed at No. 1 with 198,000 while 2006’s “Port of Miami” also did the same, but with 187,000. Elsewhere in the top 10, Jadakiss’ “The Last Kiss” slips four spots to No. 10 with 30,000 sold (down 32%).
