Ten years since his debut, The Game returns to familiar territory with the sequel, The Documentary 2.

The Game’s ‘Documentary 2’ Debuts at No. 2

The seventh album from the Compton rapper debuts at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 95,000 equivalent album units (83,000 in pure album sales). The Documentary 2, which was released independently, is the first part of a double album—the second disc, The Documentary 2.5, dropped Oct. 16.

The Game is no stranger to the top 10—it’s his seventh appearance on the list following Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf (No. 7 in 2014), Jesus Piece (No. 6 in 2012), The R.E.D. Album (No. 1 in 2011), LAX (No. 2 in 2008), Doctor’s Advocate (No. 1 in 2006), and The Documentary (No. 1 in 2005).

But he was unable to top Selena Gomez, whose latest album Revival takes the top spot, with 117,000 equivalent albums (85,000 in pure sales) during the week ending Oct. 15.

Elsewhere in the top 10, The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness falls 2-3 with 77,000 units, while Fetty Wap’s self-titled debut holds steady at No. 4 with 53,000. Drake and Future’s joint mixtape What a Time to Be Alive is down 3-5 with 49,000 units, and last week’s chart-topper, Janet Jackson’s Unbreakable, slides to No. 8 (30,000).
