"Life is Good" by Nas is No.1 on Billboard

"Life is Good" by hip-hop star Nas has reached number one on the Billboard album charts recently, with 149,000 copies being sold in its first week alone. This bumped off the Zac Brown Band's "Uncaged" from the No.1 position on the charts.

Turns out this was No. 8
This is the tenth album by Nas, who can now claim six chart-topping albums in his repertoire. The other albums in the top ten were an odd collection, seeing the Dark Knight Rises soundtrack and Kidz Bop 22 amongst their ranks.

Here's a bit more info from Yahoo! News:

"A surprise entry from Phil Collins landed at No. 6 as the veteran rocker's 1998 "...Hits" compilation returned to the chart with 40,000 copies sold, fueled by Amazon MP3 selling the set for 99 cents in a one day offer last week.

The retail website also sold Frank Ocean's "Channel Orange" for $2.99 all week, but according to Billboard chart rules, no album sold for below $3.49 in the first four weeks of release will count towards official album sales figures.

"Channel Orange" dropped to No. 4 this week with 54,000 copies, ahead of Justin Bieber's "Believe" at No. 5, selling 45,000, and One Direction's "Up All Night," which held No. 7 with 36,000 copies. Rounding out the top ten this week was Adele's "21" at No. 9 and Maroon 5's "Overexposed" at No. 10."
