Here's another stat for shot-nine-times rapper 50 Cent's collection: One. As in, number one.

The 27-year-old's solo debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin', was 2003's best-selling album, with 6.5 million copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

That sucks.

Shows how the collective consciousness is directed

I wish people would buy J-Live instead.

Here's a complete rundown of 2003's Top 10 best-selling albums, per Nielsen SoundScan:
1. Get Get Rich or Die Tryin', 50 Cent, 6.5 million copies
2. Come Away with Me, Norah Jones, 5.1 million
3. Meteora, Linkin Park, 3.5 million
4. Fallen, Evanescence, 3.4 million
5. Speakerboxx/The Love Below, OutKast, 3.1 million
6. Dangerously in Love, Beyoncé, 2.5 million
7. Chocolate Factory, R. Kelly, 2.4 million
8. Metamorphosis, Hilary Duff, 2.4 million
9. Shock'n Y'All, Toby Keith, 2.3 million
10. Rush of Blood to the Head, Coldplay, 2.2 million

I suddenly feel like a frickin GENIUS. At least a snob. Okay, I'd buy OutKast...

But some of these smack of 12 year olds with too much allowance. Doesn't bother me, but the media picks up on Brick & Mortar scan data which is led by sales to the EXTREMELY young without computer/download access or credit cards for on-line orders, and reports to the world that AMERICA loves R. Kelly!!!

I didn't vote.

The 50 Cent, Outkast, Linkin Park, Beyonce and Norah jones albums are awesome.

As for the rest on the albums on the list...

Evanescence & Toby Keith are the only ones on that list that don't smack of teenybopper pop-goodness or more straight-from-the-mold gangsta rap. I was really looking forward to Meteora, but it didn't do a thing for me...such a disappointment after Hybrid Theory.
Toby & Evanescence aren't afraid to break the stereotypes of their respective genres, and personally that gets my attention.
