  • West 'Registers' No. 1 Album Debut !

    With Late Registration, Kanye West rules the school as his sophomore Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam album makes a chart-topping bow on The Billboard 200 this week. After a few weeks of relatively low-key activity on the album chart, West's latest leads a slew of high-profile debuts by G-Unit's Tony Yayo, Brooks & Dunn, Death Cab For Cutie, Casting Crowns, Rihanna, Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan.

    The highly-anticipated "Registration" sold 860,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, besting the nearest competition by more than 600,000. The total is nearly double the outspoken producer/rapper's previous high water mark, achieved when his 2004 debut, The College Dropout,opened at No. 2 with 441,000 units. That set has sold 2.7 million to date.

    Along with being embroiled in a lawsuit with a Chicago DJ over an alleged forged recording agreement, West has been in the news following his highly-charged comments against President George W. Bush during last week's NBC Universal Hurricane Katrina telethon. He is slated to take part in another such event, MTV/VH1/CMT's ReACT Now benefit, on Saturday (Sept. 10).

    Yayo's Thoughts of a Predicate Felon takes the No. 2 slot on The Billboard 200 with a 214,000-copy start. The rapper's solo debut is led by the single "So Seductive," featuring fellow G-Unit star 50 Cent, which reached No. 7 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs list.

    Undeterred by the new titles in the crowd, Mariah Carey's The Emancipation of Mimi is holding its own, experiencing just a slight (3%) dip to 86,000 and falls 3-5. The Black Eyed Peas' Monkey Business also slips two places, landing at No. 6 on a 2% drop to 84,000.

    After storming the charts with "Pon De Replay" -- which peaked at No. 2 on The Billboard Hot 100 -- hip-hop newcomer Rihanna debuts at No. 10 on the album chart with Music of the Sun with first-week sales of 69,000.
