Album Sales: Bow Wow & Omarion, Birdman top Wu-Tang Clan

How times have changed. Bow Wow was just six years old when "Enter The 36 Chambers" was released in 1993.

Now with controversy swirling around Wu-Tang Clan's release of "8 Diagrams", it was Bow Wow & Omarion's "Face Off" that easily topped the hip-hop sales charts, moving 107,000 units in its first week. "Face Off" landed at #11 overall.

The highly anticipated return of the Wu hit #25 overall, moving just 68,000 copies.

Also topping the Shaolin crew was Cash Money CEO Birdman. "5 * Stunna" debuted at #18, selling 86,000 copies.

The State Property family suffered yet another disappointing debut, with Beanie Sigel's "The Solution", debuting at #37 with 49,000 units. Last month Freeway debuted at #42 with disappointing numbers (36,113).

Alicia Keys' "As I Am" held steady at the #2 spot for the second straight week, moving an impressive 292,000 more albums.

Sales this week are down 23.1% from the same week last year.
