Alicia Keys and Jagged Edge Locked In Tight Battle For #1 As Execs Head For The Hamptons

Better try the Hamptons number.

That’s right, fellow holiday vacationers who aren’t anywhere NEAR the office this week, J’s Alicia Keys, Columbia’s Jagged Edge and Shady/Interscope’s D12 are locked in a vicious battle for #1 that won’t be determined until ALL the reports are in…or until we leave early for the holiday.

Well, for all the assistants forced to sit at their desk and run interference for you in case the CEO calls in from the Four Seasons—be aware that Roc-A-Fella/IDJ’s Beanie Sigel is vying for a Top Five debut while Flavahood/EW/EEG’s Lil’ Mo is looking at a Top 20 bow.
