August 9 , 2012
Rapper Rick Ross has scored his fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as his solo album God Forgives, I Don't beat country group Zac Brown Band to claim the top spot.
Ross sold 218,000 copies of his latest album according to Nielsen SoundScan, recording his best sales week to date.
Sales have escalated due to a special offer on Amazon MP3, which priced the album at $5 for the month of August.
Ross' chart-topper surpassed Zac Brown Band's Uncaged, which sold 39,000 copies.
There is a sales difference of 179,000 copies between the top two albums on this week's chart.
