Hot 107.9 would like to congratulate our former intern and DJ Chris Lova Lova, better known as Ludacris, for landing his fourth number one album!

According to Billboard, Ludacris scored his fourth No. 1 on the Billboard 200 as “Battle of the Sexes” debuted atop the charts with 137,000 copies sold.

The album is the Atlanta rapper/actor’s follow-up to 2008’s “Theater of the Mind,” which peaked at No. 5. Counting “Battle,” Ludacris (born Christopher Bridges) has scored seven top 10 sets, including his previous No. 1s — “Release Therapy” (2006), “The Red Light District” (2004) and “Chicken N Beer” (2003).

The album also ties Luda for the third-most No. 1s among rap acts. His total brings him up to speed with the Beastie Boys, but trails 2Pac, DMX, Eminem and Nas, who each have five No. 1s.

The all-time leader among rap acts is Jay-Z, with 11. Coincidently, “Battle of the Sexes” is the first rap album to top the Billboard 200 since Jay-Z’s “The Blueprint 3” took hit No. 1 in early October 2009.
