Slaughterhouse, the super group comprising rappers Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Crooked I and Royce da 5'9", debuts its second studio album "Welcome to: Our House" at No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums with 52,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan. The set -- its Shady/Interscope debut -- marks the highest rank for the foursome as its self-titled first studio set (on eOne) bowed and peaked at No. 4 on the survey in 2009.
As the new album's singles appeal predominantly as mix show records, they have yet to chart on the overall R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. (However, they have been played in mixes by heavyweight DJs like Funkmaster Flex.) On the download side of things, three singles from the album have charted on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs chart: "My Life" featuring Cee Lo Green (selling 68,000 downloads to date) "Goodbye" (9,000) and "Throw That" (42,000).
Last week's No. 1, Trey Songz's "Chapter V," slips to No. 2 with 41,000 (down 69%) and 2 Chainz's "Based on a T.R.U. Story" dips 2-3 (29,000; down 38%) and Rick Ross' "God Forgives, I Don't" is stationary at No. 4 (21,000; down 24%). Rounding out the top five is DJ Khaled's "Kiss the Ring," falling 3-5 with 15,000 (down 64%).
