Jennifer Lopez and Mary J. Blige Arrive on R&B Albums Chart

Jennifer Lopez is leading on this week's R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart.

With singles including "First Love" and "I Luh Ya Papi," Lopez's new album, "A.K.A," secured the top spot on the chart Thursday thanks to sales of 33,000 copies.

Even though it is her third no.1 on the chart, it is J.Lo's lowest selling debut to date.

"The entrance marks her third No. 1 on the chart (and eighth top 10). She previously ruled with “J.Lo” in 2001, her best-selling album to date (3.8 million), and “J to the L-O! The Remixes” in 2002. Simultaneously, Lopez boasts two titles on the Billboard Hot 100: Pitbull's official World Cup song "We Are One (Ole Ola)," on which she and Brazilian pop star Claudia Leitte are featured (No. 85), and her new set's "First Love," which debuts at No. 87," reports Billboard.

In related news, Jennifer Lopez has signed on to return for another season at "American Idol". The new season is to kick off January 2015 on FOX.

Mary J. Blige also debuted on the R&B/Hip Hop Albums tally with her "Think Like a Man Too" soundtrack.

With sales of 9,000 copies, the soundtrack bowed at no. 6.

The soundtrack is Blige's sixteenth top 10 on the chart, tying her with Mariah Carey for the second-most top 10s by a female artist.
