Justin Bieber Take #1 But Monica is "Still Standing"

Most people including myself thought Monica would debut #1 on the billboard chart but Justin Bieber with the release of "My World 2.0" takes that spot. However, our girl Monica is "Still Standing" and debuts at #2 with 184,000 albums sold in her debut week. Let me just say that is damn good! Monica is an "experienced" R&B artist while Justin Bieber is one of the most popular Pop artists.

R&B music with real singing and real lyrics is still alive. Monica, Sade, Maxwell, and Chrisette Michelle have all topped the billboard 200. Even more impressive was Gospel Recording Star Marvin Sapp debut at #2 which made history for the highest charting Gospel album!

Marvin Sapp slips to #9 this week but for a Gospel artist to even be in the Top 10 is amazing! To debut at #2 is something really special. It shows that people are tired of the darkness and gimmicks in music. People want to hear real music, that is about something deeper than material gains.
