New Wave Dynamics Heats Up the Comedy Charts With "NICK CANNON: MR. SHOWBIZ"
"Mr. Showbiz" is the top selling new comedy release for the week of May 22nd.
BURBANK, Calif., May 26, 2011 -- The comedy album release from multi-faceted performer Nick Cannon, NICK CANNON: MR. SHOWBIZ (New Wave Dynamics) was the top selling title among new comedy releases on the Billboard Comedy Chart for the week ending May 22nd. "Mr. Showbiz" is available on iTunes & Amazon and wherever digital albums are sold. Sales should see another rise when the CD is released in stores on May 31st.
"I'm very proud of the fact that in less than two years New Wave Dynamics has been able to release an album towards the top of the charts that is as hysterical as it is popular," Brian Volk-Weiss, Sr. VP, Head of Production/Management/Dynamics.
Cannon uses his trademark charisma and natural comic timing to reveal his thoughts on his famous marriage to Mariah Carey, becoming a father, and putting an end to his buzzed about Twitter war with hip-hop star Eminem. Revealing his edgy side, he also shares hysterically honest stories about his humble beginnings, family, his 'hood tendencies' and failed attempts at being a gangster.
