John Legend and Jaheim Albums Debut Within Top 10

John Legend and Jaheim have each earned another top 10 charting album this week thanks to efforts titled "Love in the Future" and "Appreciation Day."

On the strength of singles like "Who Do We Think We Are," Legend's latest effort, "Love in the Future" opened on the Billboard 200 chart with sales of 68,000 copies Wednesday.

That placed his album at no.4, giving him his sixth consecutive top 10. It also ties, position-wise, with his last solo set, "Evolver," which debuted and peaked at no.4 with 133,000 copies sold in 2008.

Jaheim follows John Legend with "Appreciation Day," which came in at no. 6 on the chart with sales of 58,000 copies.

"It's his fifth top 10 set and follows 2010's "Another Round," which debuted and peaked at No. 3 from a 112,000 debut. His new album tallies his lowest sales start for a studio album, falling lower than his first album's opening: 2001's "Ghetto Love" (80,000)," Billboard reports.

As previously reported, Ariana Grande topped this week's Billboard 200 albums chart with "Yours Truly." Featuring songs like "The Way" and "Baby I," the album moved 138,000 copies in its first week. Tamar Braxton's "Love and War" followed closely behind at no.2, moving 114,000 copies first week.
