Pain is Loved at Retail Counter
For a second consecutive week, rapper Ja Rule hit the #1 spot in the U.S. album charts with his latest effort, Pain is Love, selling 220,793 copies. Enya sandwiched two rappers with Bubba Sparxxx just below her at #3 for the week on the Billboard 200, clearing 132,174 albums. According to HitsDailyDouble.com, Ja Rule looks set perhaps for a 3rd week at #1 to follow Jay-Z’s similar effort with sales tracking at 175,000. Enya’s momentum and a new album by Ozzy Osbourne are on a similar pace though.
