Sean Paul blazes the Billboard album charts with Imperial Blaze

Sean Paul’s Imperial Blaze album for VP/Atlantic sold 28,465 copies in its opening week to register a number 12 debut on the Billboard 200 album chart. The sales impact though not as huge as his previous opening in 2005, was enough to land the set to the top of Billboard’s Reggae album chart. Over on Billboard’s R&B Hip Hop album chart, Imperial Blaze lit up the number three spot

Imperial Blaze has given Sean Paul his third consecutive number one album on the Billboard Reggae album chart. His 2000 debut album Stage One managed to peak at number two.

It’s interesting to note that Sean Paul’s previous set, The Trinity, which was released in 2005, sold 107,000 copies in its first-week of release to garner a number seven debut on the Billboard 200. The set muscled it way to number four on the R&B Hip Hop album chart. That sales haul is still the biggest first week burst for a Jamaican reggae artiste in the history of the Billboard 200 album chart.

Dutty Rock, Sean’s 2002 album, sold 65,000 copies in its opening week.

Still on Sean Paul, he is making significant strides on the Billboard Singles charts. Over on Billboard’s Canada Hot 100 Singles tally, So Fine moves from 69 to 58. Stateside, the single bullets from 60 to 54 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles chart.
