Raheem Devaughn and Jason Derulo made solid debuts on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week, coming in just below Sade and American Idol vet Danny Gokey. While each failed to reach the top of the chart, which went to Lady Antebellum, followed by Sade,’ the duo’s albums faired well thanks to singles like “Bulletproof”. Raheem Devaughn is this week’s top R&B related debut, landing at no.10 on the Billboard 200. The “Bulletproof” singer’s long anticipated album”The Love & War Masterpeace” opened with 45,000 copies sold, ironically tying his last effort, “Love Behind The Melody,” which debuted with the same sales in 2008. After claiming the top spot on the UK Singles chart with “In My Head,” Jason Derulo’s self-titled debut arrived at no.11 on the chart this week. Selling 42,000 copies “Jason Derulo” (the album) follows the chart-topping (Hot 100) single “Whatcha Say”.
