YOUR NEW RELEASES: Well, there's Jay-Z and everyone else this week. Magna Carta Holy Grail's chart-topping first week should best the bows of his previous three releases, Watch The Throne (436k), Blueprint 3 (476k) and American Gangster (425k). Looks like Samsung's marketing campaign is paying off for everyone. Here are this week's key debuts:

Jay-Z (Roc Nation) 475-525k
Ciara (Epic) 55-65k
Skylar Grey (KidinaKorner/Interscope) 15-18k
Donell Jones (eOne) 10-12k

As of this writing Magna Carta remains the #1 album on the iTunes chart in its "explicit" form, while the "clean" version occupies the #5 spot. Lead single "Holy Grail" featuring Justin Timberlake is #2 on the singles chart, while "Tom Ford" (an early fave among hip-hop heads) has bounced to #13. (7/10p)
