Alicia Keys Scores Fifth No. 1 Abum With ‘Girl On Fire’

Kid Fury December 5, 2012 Cute For You! 30 Comments

Alicia Keys is out here snatching #1 albums like she snatches married men — without a care while you are forced to deal. Her latest album, Girl On Fire: Blackness Everdeen, has topped the Billboard charts this week with 159,000 copies sold according to Nielsen SoundScan.

This is now her fifth number one album, as her first four projects and her Unplugged album also peaked at the top of the chart. I still haven’t listened to this new album and don’t really have the desire to do so. I mean…I just wanted to see the “Put It In A Love Song” video.

Anyway, congratulations to Alicia. If you’re wondering about Miss Rihanna’s album, Unapologetic slipped down the charts from #1 to #6. Shine bright like Alicia’s slickback.

    The day we see that put it in a love song video, amy winehouse coming back from the dead singing Valerie with a full 8 piece band at the next Grammys.

    • Misty ZsaZsaGucci

      LMAO that video gone, and all involved with its production are in witness protection. How are we able to find Kurupts game show pilot and not a video made 2 yrs ago?

    “Shine bright like Alicia’s slickback”. YOU. SIR. SHOULD. LEAVE!

  • JoJo

    Is it still a win when this album sold 300k copies less than the last one??? Just wondering how they see it in the biz…..

    • FrostByteMuah

      Exactly. This is not a win for A Keys.

      Didn’t J. Cole do better in his first week?

      • serenissima

        these numbers confuse me because her last album didn’t even go #1.. are the units cds are moving just THAT much lower nowadays? sell anything over 90k and you’re instantly #1?

        • serenissima

          how do you guys edit comments? lol i meant to also add:

          ‘Because that would mean this album sold less than her last one but did better on the charts.’

          • Kee

    “Shine bright like Alicia’s slickback.” <—- See Kid Fury, this is why I can't fuck wit you! LMAOOO

    I've been an AK fan for a while but as of late I haven't really been checking for her. The new material just makes me want to take a long nap. Sorry, sis.

  • M.J.

    I’m still trying to get into this album. 

  • whatevs

    Lolol okay Alicia, I wasn’t expecting Rihanna to stay at the top of the charts forever but I wasn’t expecting Girl Is Screeching to hit #1 either… better take my odds to Vegas I guess

  • Earthshaker1217

    Well…congrats to Alicia.

  • brandonjaye

    Hasn’t that girl burned to ash by now?  

  • Doyenne Eleganza Saint-Augusti

    I do see it for “101″ on this album, and I’ve been skipping around trying to find the next song I can get my claws into. …no luck yet. 

    • Ay

      “Fire we make” and “Listen to your heart”

  • idreamoflabels

    “BLACKNESS EVERDEEN”…. *swan dives into casket* R.I.P. to my soul.

  • Ay

    Where the haters at???????

  • Basquiat

    Bey and Gaga better not debut with the numbers like those we’ve been seeing in the past couple weeks. It seems like people are losing interest in top 40 music. There has never been so many indie artists nominated for the Grammys’ best album of the year.

    I’m just here for the first and last sentences.
