    No surprise here! 436,000 fans were watching the throne this week! As predicted, Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne cruised into the No. 1 slot on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart, selling 436,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's the second-largest sales week of the year for an album, placing second to Lady Gaga's monstrous Born This Way. Congrats to Jay-Z and Kanye West on their No. 1. They should be used to those by now, as Jay has had 12 and 'Ye has had five under his belt.

    Did you purchase Watch the Throne yet?
