Flo Rida managed to climb his way back to the top of the charts this week, holding off Nas’s latest, “Life is Good.”
The Sunshine state rapper’s fourth album “Wild Ones” scurried up four notches to land at No.1 again in Canada with sales of 6,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan data. He has now sold 27,000 to date.
Nas 10th studio album “Life Is Good” came in just behind at No. 2. Life would have been better for the New York rapper if he had sold more than just 5,700 copies - but it will have to do for now.
Justin Bieber, fresh off his Teen Choice Awards wins, still has a strong hold on the charts, finishing in third and continuing his push for platinum-album status. His latest disc “Believe” moved another 5,600 units. To date, Bieber’s Canadian fans have bought just over 98,000 copies of the disc.
“Channel Orange,” the album from Louisiana R&B singer Frank Ocean, dropped one to fourth place, ahead of One Direction’s “Up All Night” (No. 5) and Adele’s “21” at No. 6.
Adam Levine and Maroon 5 ‘s chart exposure is dwindling, as their “Overexposed” dropped down three more notches to No. 7, ahead of last week’s No. 1 “Uncaged” by the Zac Brown Band in eighth place.
At the bottom of the list is Linkin Park’s “Living Things” at No. 9 and “The Dark Knight Rises” soundtrack in tenth place.
Across the border, Nas was king, followed by Zac Brown in second, kiddie pop covers album “Kidz Bop 22” at No. 3, Ocean in fourth place and Bieber in fifth.
