This is a rare week in album numbers. It is not often when no album manages to debut in the top 10. The highest debuting album this week is “All At Once” from The Airborne Toxic Event at lucky number 13.
Adele continues to DOMINATE the charts this year. She may have the highest selling album of the year sewn up before the big fall albums even come out. Her 21 is topping the chart this week while her 19 has climbed back into the top 10. Foo Fighters continue to sell strong at 2nd three weeks in while Britney moves enough units to take 3rd (as she needs to do because she has a ways to go to sell all those CDs they shipped). Mumford and Sons and Chris Brown round out the top 5 with 4th and 5th respectively.
The back-half of the top 10 is filled with Glee’s Warblers, Jason Aldean (featuring a duet with Kelly Clarkson), Lemonade Mouth, Now 37 and the aforementioned Adele. The only solo Idol on the list is Jennifer Hudson and with 56.9% of the market reporting in, she is currently at 21st.
Speaking of NOW, the track listing of NOW 38 is out and it features no Idols. That’s two in a row for that franchise.
This is the daily numbers thread. Sometimes it is like an airborne toxic event. Sometimes, it is my kinda party. Find out which after the jump.
