    From Billboard

    Carrie Underwood Debuts Atop Billboard 200, Beats Norah Jones, B.o.B

    Carrie Underwood easily trounces the competition this week as her fourth album, “Blown Away,” debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 267,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    It’s the best sales week for a country album since the chart dated Oct. 1, 2011, when Lady Antebellum’s “Own the Night” bowed atop the list with 347,000. It’s the largest frame for a country set by a solo act since Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now” sold 276,000 over the Christmas week of 2010.

    “Blown’s” debut is also the second-largest arrival of any album in 2012. This year, only Madonna’s “MDNA” started bigger, with 358,000. So far in 2012, just three titles have bowed with more than 200,000 in their first week — and
    they are all by women. In addition to Underwood and Madonna, Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” is in the 200,000-plus debut club, as it started with 253,000.

    A year ago at this point, five albums had started north of 200,000: Adele’s “21” (351,000), Lupe Fiasco’s “Lasers” (204,000), Chris Brown’s “F.A.M.E.” (270,000), Britney Spears’ “Femme Fatale” (276,000) and Foo Fighters’ “Wasting Light” (235,000).

    “Blown Away” marks the third chart-topper for Underwood on the Billboard 200, following 2007’s “Carnival Ride” (527,000 first week) and 2009’s “Play On” (318,000). She is only the third woman to take three country albums to No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Underwood follows Linda Ronstadt and Faith Hill.
    Ronstadt did it with “Heart Like a Wheel” (1974), “Simple Dreams” (1977) and “Living in the USA” (1978). Hill topped the tally consecutively with “Breathe” (1999), “Cry” (2002) and “Fireflies” (2005).

    Trailing Underwood on the Billboard 200 this week is Norah Jones’ “. . .Little Broken Hearts,” debuting at No. 2 with 110,000. It’s her fifth studio set overall, and fifth to reach the top three. She crowned the tally with three earlier efforts and hit No. 3 with her last one, 2009’s “The Fall.” The new album’s debut sales week is the smallest for any of Jones’ studio offerings since her first, “Come Away With Me,” launched with 10,000 in 2002.

    The new “Now 42″ compilation enters at No. 3 with 95,000 — giving the chart its first debut-filled top three since Nov. 19, 2011. That week, the entire top four were new arrivals, led by Justin Bieber’s “Under the Mistletoe” at No. 1, with Wale’s “Ambition,” Miranda Lambert’s “Four the Record” and Susan Boyle’s “Someone to Watch Over Me” starting at Nos. 2-4, respectively.

    If the top three are all debuts this week, that must mean Adele’s long-running “21” has (momentarily?) stepped aside out of the top three. This week it slips 2-4 with 77,000 (down 8%). It had been lodged in the top three rungs since Dec. 17.

    B.o.B’s second album, “Strange Clouds,” floats in at No. 5 with a 76,000 start. It follows 2010’s “The Adventures of Bobby Ray,” which debuted at No. 1 (84,000). “Strange Clouds” was led by the set’s title track, which hit No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the new single “So Good” (No. 11).

    Lionel Richie’s “Tuskegee” moves 3-6 (64,000; down 18%), Jack White’s “Blunderbuss” falls 1-7 (56,000; down 60%) and One Direction’s “Up All Night” slips 4-8 (45,000; down 10%).

    The final two positions in the top 10 are taken up by new entries, with the “Smash” TV soundtrack starting at No. 9 (39,000) and Marilyn Manson’s
    “Born Villain” entering at No. 10 (38,000). It is the latter’s seventh top 10 album and follows 2009’s “The High End of Low” (No. 4 with 49,000).

    Over on the Digital Songs chart, the entire top five is stationary this week, led again by Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” (featuring Kimbra) with 348,000 (down 16%).

    Maroon 5’s “Payphone” (featuring Wiz Khalifa) is No. 2 (286,000; down 13%), Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” is No. 3 (210,000; down 5%), fun.’s “We Are Young” (featuring Janelle Monae) is No. 4 (187,000; down 10%) and Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” is No. 5 (172,000; down 10%).

    One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” is up one rung to No. 6 (151,000; down 11%) while Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” rises two slots to No. 7 (147,000; down 2%).

    B.o.B’s “Both of Us” (featuring Taylor Swift) is the chart’s highest debut, starting at No. 8 with 143,000.

    Closing out the top 10 are Flo Rida’s “Wild Ones” (featuring Sia), falling one position to No. 9 (139,000; down 9%) and the Wanted’s “Glad You Came,” staying steady at No. 10 (120,000; down 16%).

    Overall album sales in this past chart week (ending May 6) totaled 5.77 million units, up 7% compared to the sum last week (5.40 million) and down 7% compared to the comparable sales week of 2011 (6.23 million). Year to date album sales stand at 106.73 million, down 1% compared to the same total at this point last year (108.11 million).

    Digital track sales this past week totaled 25.41 million downloads, down less than 1% compared to last week (25.52 million) and 6% stacked next to the comparable week of 2011 (24.03 million). Year to date track sales are at 495.40 million, up 7% compared to the same total at this point last year
    (462.37 million).

    Next week’s Billboard 200 competes with the same week in 2011 when: Adele’s “21” held at No. 1 for an eighth nonconsecutive week (156,000; up less than 1%) while the top debut was the Lonely Island’s “Turtleneck & Chain” at No. 3 (68,000).

    On Amazon Best Sellers list Adam is #14 and Haley #200, but on itunes she is #124 and he is #312.  Does anyone have any idea of why there is this big discrepancy between these two charts? Mainly wondering why Adam would be far ahead on Amazon and Haley far ahead of him on itunes.

  • Tess

    Don’t have a clue about Haley, but Adam has previously sold well in actual albums vs. digital.  Most of the peeps I know would rather have something “physical” (and no double entrande’ intended) from Adam to add to their permanent collection.

    Haley has a big banner on iTunes POP and a stamp on the overall front page.  Listen Up! jumped from #176 on POP Monday to #29 on POP (#126 overall) yesterday.

    Wow! Scotty still sold 6,000 albums this week and has an increase of 11%. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since his sales has always been consistent. He’s been in school & not done much shows or had much media coverage. He starts touring again very soon & his new single is slowly climbing up the charts. So his numbers should stay about the same or increase.

    Congrats to Carrie. I know some people think the numbers are low. But we live in a digital world now where people just buy singles instead of albums. So her numbers are great. I think her album will go platinum like her other albums.

    I hope Adam & Haley’s presale numbers means they will open with good numbers the first week. I’m hoping Adam has great numbers to stop the majority of Idol alums from having bad 2nd albums in terms of sales. Listening to the clips I am really looking forward to hearing and buying his album.

    Haley wasn’t my favorite contestant in S10 (Scotty), but she was my 2nd choice. I really love her single “Free.” Listening to the clips, I am really looking forward to her album. I hope she does well especially since they took the time to make a good album instead of “striking while the iron is hot” right after the show.

    On Amazon Best Sellers list Adam is #14 and Haley #200, but on itunes
    she is #124 and he is #312.  Does anyone have any idea of why there is
    this big discrepancy between these two charts?

    A) There isn’t a huge difference between 124th and 312th on iTunes. It’s probably only a couple of hundred CDs, if that. Once  you fall out of the top 10 on iTunes, the number of units moved are relatively small. A small difference in units moved result in a massive change in chart position.

    B) Amazon doesn’t sell a lot of CDs either. While the difference between 14 and 200th on Amazon represents a larger difference in numbers of CDs sold than 124th and 312th on iTunes, it’s still a drop in the bucket.

    C) The two markets are entirely different. Amazon tends to appeal to an older crowd while iTunes appeals to a younger (more Pop and R&B) crowd. While I’m not saying that Adam’s fans are all old and Haley’s fans are all young (because that is far from the truth), it is not reasonable to expect the two charts to reflect each other (they only do that for very highly charting artists).

    D) Are there any bonus tracks offered by anybody? That could make a difference.

    I have probably a dumb musing, but why would one preorder a digital download album?  Now it makes sense with a physical CD because of the mailing delay involved, but with the digital one gets it instantly.  It is my experience that the CD in in the mailbox on release day if preordered.    If one can’t get the download until release date why buy early?  I have preodered Trespassing on Amazon, but will get my download on the 15th.  Am I missing something? I think I have answered my own question: these preorders reflect the free single downloads. Fan girl that I am, I didn’t do this as I wanted to help the single sales.

  • Anonymous

    Way to go Scotty!! Very consistant sales.  I’m not surprised at all by Carrie’s sales being below HDD’s early predictions (Carrie Underwood (19/Arista Nashville) 270-295k) but i agree that we do live in a digital world! Besides, unlike Scotty’s…Carrie’s songs are actually played on the radio every hour on the hour so no need to rush out and buy her CD. Just sayin! ;-)

  • Trina

    Amazon pre-orders use to be a pretty good gauge to give a good idea about potential sales numbers. They arent scientific but they do give a tiny bit of an idea. Like I remember Lee and others who opened low never having great Amazon numbers, sometimes barely cracking the Top 100. #15 for Adam is really good.

    Congrats, Carrie!

    And I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised at an increase from Scotty?  From where?  I mean…his only promo was baseball-related, does being on SportsCenter help you sell albums?  Cool.

  • Anonymous

    I agree that Amazon pre-orders are a reasonable indicator of first week sales, more significant than ITunes, imo.

  • Kirsten

     

    I have probably a dumb musing, but why would one preorder a digital download album?

    It does seem like an odd thing to do. Perhaps people are really excited and just have to buy something?

    There are sometimes some incentives. I purchased a pre-order on iTunes once because it came with a bonus track I really, really wanted. It only came with the pre-order. Sometimes, you also get to download a single. So, if you are going to buy the album anyway (and you don’t know about “Complete My Album”), you might do that to get the single now and not have to buy it twice.

  • mmb

    Didn’t Haley’s pre-order just go on sale this week? Yes? no? and has a banner..if.so all of her fans etc are ordering it, propelling it up the chart.  Adam’s pre-order went up a few weeks ago…it was in the top 50 for a while (I recall seeing it in the 20s/30s, may have gone higher I just don’t remember, I’m sure someone else does)…and then, as most pre-orders do, fell down the chart. (If this isn’t Haley’s first pre-order week, then I would just chalk it up to the banner…also I think the snippets just became available, so that may have helped)

    Just pre-ordered Haley’s fan bundle from her website…I feel like a better person now. =)

    There could be a lot of reasons. If you look at amazon.com, you see the following rankings:

    Best Sellers in Music:

    # 15 – Adam Lambert – Trespassing (Deluxe edition) (price $11.99)
    #114 – Kris Allen – Thank You Camellia  (price $8.59)
    #183 – Haley Reinhart – Blown Away (price $8.89)
    #380 – Adam Lambert – Trespassing (Standard edition) ($9.99)

    Neither Kris nor Haley seem to have the deluxe versions of their albums available for purchase through amazon.com (though Kris does have a vinyl LP of TYC available for purchase), while Adam has both his standard and deluxe version on there. As you can see, the prices vary slightly, which also probably comes into play in terms of who is buying what.

    I may be wrong, but it seems like Haley’s album just went up for pre-orders on iTunes the other day (that’s when I saw the snippets, anyway), while Adam and Kris have both had their albums up on there for a little while longer. Also, does Haley have a deluxe version available on iTunes, or just the standard version? Both guys have a deluxe and standard album available for sale on there. As with amazon, I think the prices for these downloads might be slightly different for each artist.

    Also, all 3 of these people have various versions of their upcoming album available for purchase on their own websites. The fan editions with all the various bells & whistles (other than just bonus tracks) are, I believe, only available through their official websites. A lot of the most hardcore fans are likely buying these fancy schmancy pckages, rather than (or perhaps in addition to), simply ordering through amazon or iTunes.

    Not to mention, they all have other places where you can order the album (for example, I know Kris has his album available for pre-order at Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy & Barnes & Noble. I would assume Adam’s and Haley’s albums are also available on at least some of these stores’ sites).

    Anyway, this is just a long winded way of saying that there are so many different places to pre-order an album these days that rankings on any particular site probably don’t mean much in terms of the overall sales for the artists.

    It looks like most of the country Idols got a boost in album sales this week. Do you think that is in reaction to Carrie’s album being released — sort of a trickle down effect?

    Here is the one day sales report from Pulse.

     

    TWO DIVAS: ONE THRONE 

    Looks Like It Could Be Carrie vs. Adele for #1 on
    Post-Mother’s Day Chart

     

    Mother’s Day is turning out to be a
    mother of a battle between a pair of pop divas.

    It may be a little too early to say,
    but it’s sure looking like a tussle for #1 next week between 19/Arista
    Nashville country star Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away, this
    week’s chart-topper, and XL/Columbia perennial Adele, set
    to go over 9 million sold in the U.S. for her Grammy-sweeping 21.

    As always, we’ll have a clearer
    picture tomorrow, but none of this week’s debuts will have a shot t the to
    spot.

    Dangerbird L.A. Silver Lake indie rockers Silversun Pickups’
    third studio album, Neck of the Woods, will be the top newcomer, with an
    estimated total of 35-40k, which would compare favorably to the 43k they scored
    in April, ’09 with Swoon, which went on to sell a robust 318k. The band
    performed on the Jimmy Kimmel Live outdoor stage last night. The band received
    a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist in 2009.

    Grammy-nominated Atlantic
    R&B singer-songwriter Tank’s This Is How I Feel, featuring
    collaborations with T.I., Chris Brown and Busta Rhymes, is
    on target for a 25-30k first week. The album, his fifth, is the follow-up to
    his 2010 label debut, Now or Never, which debuted with 44k in Dec. 2010.
    Tank’s collaboration on Chris Brown’s “Take My Time” earned him a nomination at
    last year’s Grammys in the “Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with
    Vocals” category, which joined his eight career nominations to date. In
    addition to his own music, Tank has contributed vocals and helped pen hit
    records for the likes of Jamie Foxx, Keri Hilson and Chris Brown.

    Veteran Interscope U.K.
    popmeisters Keane’s fourth studio album, Strangeland, their first
    since 2008’s Perfect Symmetry, looks to be in the 17-20k range, about
    half the total of the previous album’s 43.5k.

    Epic viral sensations and SNL hip-pop duo Karmin’s
    debut, Hello, is also looking at 17-20k in first-week sales on the heels
    of the Top 5 dance hit, “Brokenhearted.”

    Columbia gospel duo Mary Mary’s
    seventh album, Go Get It, looks to be in the 12-15k range, off from last
    year’s Something Big, which debuted with 42k in sales. The two
    introduced the title track on the final episode of their new reality TV series.

    Album sales were up 7% vs. last
    week, down 7% vs. same week last year and down 1% year to date.

    Track sales were flat vs. last week,
    up 6% vs. same week last year and up 7% year to date.

     

    TEA sales were up 4% vs. last week,
    down 4% vs. same week last year and up 1% year to date.

    Yes, Haley only has the deluxe version on iTunes, it’s why is higher there than in Amazon where it’s only the regular. And you mistyped there, its “Listen Up!”.
    And also I hope people here mentioning it are at least checking it out and buying it, after hearing the previews.

    Scotty’s album is listed at the top of the page.  He sold 6,000 albums, and came in at #70 on the Billboard top 200.
