Everyone’s been waiting to hear where Rihanna and Mary J. Blige’s new albums have made their splash on the album charts this week.

This project marks her sixth top 10 debut and second biggest week since LOUD opened with 207,000 last year.

The LP falls 1-4, selling 173,000 copies in its second week. Yelawolf‘s Shady Records debut Radioactive came in at No. 27 on the charts with only 41,000 copies sold first week.
