Lil Wayne’s run at number one on the Billboard 200 has come to an end after just one week. The emcee’s latest effort, “I Am Not A Human Being,” falls to number five this week after selling another 65-thousand copies. The new album from country duo Sugarland bumped Weezy from the top spot, while the latest from Kings of Leon, Elton John and Leon Russell, and Rod Stewart also placed ahead of the rapper. “I Am Not A Human Being” was released digitally on September 27th — which was Wayne’s 28th birthday — and debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 after moving 110-thousand downloads. The record arrived in stores on October 12th, and was able to claim the chart’s top spot last week after selling another 125-thousand copies. Lil Wayne is currently serving a one-year sentence at Rikers Island for weapons charges. He is expected to be released early next month.
Eminem is also holding onto a spot on the Billboard 200. His critically acclaimed “Recovery” album is at number eight this week after selling 43-thousand units. To date, “Recovery” has sold nearly three-million copies in the U.S.
