Thanks to Barry Weiss (Chairman and CEO Island/Def Jam), Steve Bartels (President/COO Island Def Jam Music Group) and Joie Manda (President of Def Jam), Island Def Jam is hotter than the middle of July. This summer the label received four number one chart-topping albums (three Hip Hop albums in one month). 2 Chainz ‘Based On A Tru Story’, Nas ‘Life Is Good’, Rick Ross’ ‘God Forgives, I Don’t’ and Justin Bieber’s ‘Believe’ albums all debuted at number one on the Billboard top 200, while Frank Ocean’s ‘Channel Orange’ debuted at number two.
Congratulations Rozay and Def Jam!
