After a monstrous promotional campaign, Common‘s 10th studio album, ‘Nobody’s Smiling,’ debuts at No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts.

This is the Chicago rapper’s third top 10 album since his 2007 release ‘Finding Forever,’ which scored the No. 1 position. ‘Nobody’s Smiling’ sold 24,000 copies in its first week.

Common discussed one of the most personal songs on the effort, ‘Rewind That,’ in an exclusive interview with The Boombox. The MC recounts his roommate experience with his friend and collaborator producer, J Dilla before his untimely death in 2006, as well as a little-known rift with producer No I.D.

In other Billboard news, Iggy Azalea’s ubiquitous cut ‘Fancy,’ featuring Charli XCX, fell one spot, moving from the No. 3 to 4 position, selling 123,000 units. Ariana Grande’s ‘Problems,’ featuring Iggy, also slipped three spots, going from the No. 5 position to No. 8, selling 100,000 units.
