Default Ludacris Tops Billboard

For the third time in his career, rapper Ludacris has topped the Billboard 200 album chart. Following 2004’s Red Light District and 2003’s Chicken ‘N Beer, his latest CD, Release Therapy, sold 309,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, to capture the pole position.

Despite the relentless promotion of Janet Jackson’s new album 20 Y.O. – which included a visit to the Oprah Winfrey Show, an album-naming contest, interviews on radio stations around the world and gracing endless magazine covers – the CD entered Billboard in second place on sales of 296,000.

Fox columnist Roger Friedman says her second place debut is disappointing for the Jackson camp and may signal some rough waters ahead.

"Believe it or not, Janet is also facing a major problem at radio," writes Friedman. "Right now, neither of the singles from 20 YO has cracked pop formats, and ‘So Excited,’ her annoying new single featuring 35-year-old gangsta raptress Khia, is making only a little impact on R&B/hip hop stations."

Meanwhile, Fergie's solo debut "The Dutchess" drops 3-9; and "Weird Al" Yankovic’s Straight Outta Lynwood, featuring the Chamillionaire parody "White and Nerdy," debuts at No. 10.
