Wale Gets His First No. 1 With The Gifted

Roc Nation signee Wale has ambition that don't quit. After his undershipped Interscope record (Attention Deficit) opened at No. 21 on the Billboard charts, he had been widely counted out of the top-runners. But a label switch to MMG/Warner Bros. helped move his sophomore album to a No. 2 opening week; and by his third, The Gifted, that love/hate thing balanced out in his favor, giving him his first No. 1 debut.
