Just in case you didn't know, Ol' skool continue to dominate.
For the Billboard Magazine issue, hitting stands for October 8th, Luther Vandross takes the #1 spot on the R&B/Hip-Hop Music Charts with his fabulous tribute album ("So Amazing: A Tribute to Luther Vandross) created by some of R&B most celebrated crusaders (Patti Labelle, John Legend, Aretha Franklin, Fantasia, Celine Dion). Kanye West, whom claimed the spot for weeks, parks at #2. The posthumous tribute album also resides at #4 on the Billboard 100 (pop). Earth Wind And Fire's "Illumination", the major come-back project fueled by top producers including Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, the Black Eyed Peas and Raphael Saadiq, claims the #8 R&B/32 pop positions; proving that they keep gettin' better and better in time.
We are definitely proud of these achievements. We can only wait to see what ol' skool will do next to the world. The takeover continues.
