Rapper Rick Ross collects his fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, as "Mastermind" arrives atop the list. The set sold 179,000 copies in the week ending March 9, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 is Pharrell Williams' second album, "G I R L." The singer-rapper-producer’s new set sold a larger-than-expected 112,000 in its first week. The album's lead single, the inescapable "Happy," hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 three weeks ago. One day before the release of "G I R L" on Monday, March 3, Williams performed "Happy" on the Academy Awards, where it was nominated for best original song. While the cut didn't win the trophy for Williams ("Let It Go" from "Frozen" took the honor), the global exposure certainly didn't hurt him.
Lea Michele of Fox TV's "Glee" arrives at No. 4 with her debut album, "Louder." It sold 60,000 copies in its first week.
