The Untouchable is the fourth album from Houston hip hop artist Scarface. Scarface debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart for the first time in his career with the album; in addition it peaked at the top of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart for two weeks, giving Scarface his second #1 album there. The effort included the smash hit single, "Smile", featuring Tupac Shakur, released shortly after the shooting deaths of Tupac and Notorious B.I.G.. It peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is the only single released by Scarface to go Gold.[7]
