Want to know what new release discs and platters are moving across the Valley at local record stores? We've got you covered with another installment of What's Selling.
Looks like the students returning to nearby ASU have been hitting Zia Records in Tempe up for some dorm-rocking jams. Just about every genre shows up in the store's top ten best sellers, from the indie-rock of Foster the People to the dubsteppy sounds of Skrillex. But the number one slot belongs to one of the biggest hip-hop collabs in recent memory, Jay-Z and Kayne West's Watch the Throne.
1. Kanye West & Jay Z - Watch The Throne 2. Trivium - In Waves 3. Foster The People - Torches 4. Adele - 21 5. DJ Khaled - We The Best Forever 6. Skrillex - Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites 7. Sublime with Rome - Yours Truly 8. Incubus - If Not Now, When? 9. Kelly Rowland - Here I Am 10. Nekromantix - What Happens In Hell Stays In Hell
