Billboard Idol Update for Issue 11/17/07

Check out this week’s massive Idol Billboard update!

The highlights:

  • After the Eagles managed to sell 700K of their latest album “Eden” through a record deal exclusive to Wal-mart, Billboard decided to revise their chart policy that kept Bo Bice’s new album (also a Wal-mart exclusive) off the Billboard 200 last week. This week, Bo’s latest effort, “See the Light” “debuts” at #150 on the Billboard 200. It would have debuted at #89 last week if it had been eligible.   The Eagles’ “Eden” debuts at #1,   Britney Spear’s “Blackout at #2 and then…
  • …Carrie Underwood’s “Carnival Ride” drops 2 spots to #3. She’s #2 on the Top Country Album chart, displaced from the #1 position  this week by the Eagles.   Her sales dipped 68% this week, to 170, 100 from 527, 101 last week.   Her total so far: 697, 626.  
  • Katharine McPhee’s “SOTR/My Destiny” re-enters the Hot Singles Sales chart this week at #48
  • Jordin Sparks continues her climb up the charts.   She could hit the Billboard Hot 100 Top 20 next week if the trend continues.   Her album drops on November 20.
