Rapper B.O.B. has scored a chart double in the U.S. after debuting his new album THE ADVENTURES OF BOBBY RAY at the top of the Billboard 200.
The 21 year old becomes the first solo male artist to score a number one on the countdown with a debut since Rick Ross' Port of Miami hit the top in 2006.
B.o.B. also boasts the current number one on the U.S. singles chart with Nothin' On You - but that is expected to change when the new list is officially released on Thursday (06May10) and Usher is crowned the new king. The R&B star's OMG is expected to hit the top spot, giving him his ninth chart-topper.
Country trio Lady Antebellum's Need You Now stays put at two on the new album chart, while rockers Bullet For My Valentine debut Fever at three.
Justin Bieber's My World 2.0 and AC DC's soundtrack to Iron Man 2 both drop a spot each to round out the new top five.
