Jazmine Sullivan‘s first studio album in over four years, Reality Show, debuts at No. 1 on R&B Albums, and No. 2 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. The singer’s third studio release sold 29,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen Music. It also launches at No. 12 on the Billboard 200 – her highest showing since her debut album Fearless reached the No. 6 slot.

Sullivan announced that she would be taking a hiatus from music in 2011, following the release of her second set Love Me Back (which peaked at No. 5 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums). She returned to the charts with Reality Show’s first official single “Dumb,” featuring Meek Mill, which peaked at No. 26 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart in August.

Usher Hits No. 1 on Hot R&B Songs: On Hot R&B Songs, Usher climbs 3-1 with “I Don’t Mind” featuring Juicy J, each landing their first chart-topping title on the relatively young list (it launched in 2012). Streams of the track increase 15 percent, to 4.2 million domestic clicks during the week ending Jan. 18, despite not having an official music video. Most streams stem from Spotify (45 percent of overall clicks), which rises to 1.9 million weekly listens according to Nielsen. Digital sales rise to 57,000 downloads (up seven percent), aiding in its ascent, while it concurrently hops 3-1 on R&B Digital Songs.
