(Mashable) – Well, this is an anomaly.
A Christian rap album, fittingly titled Anomaly, has soared to the top of this week’s album chart. Lecrae’s seventh studio effort claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, a rare feat as only a handful of Christian albums have ever achieved this top ranking.
The 34-year-old rapper sold 88,000 copies of Anomaly in its first week out, Nielsen SoundScan tabulated. Anomaly dethrones last week’s chart-topper — Maroon 5’s V — which bowed out in its second week with 80,000 copies sold.
