I haven’t done one of these in awhile Here is this week’s Idol Billboard Update. I post the chart every week, usually Thursday or Friday. You can find the link at the bottom of the purple header.

Worth noting:

  • Ace Young debuts on the Billboard 200 this week. His album Ace Young enters the chart at #160. He debuts on the Independent Album Chart at #20.
  • Chris Sligh’s single “Empty Me” becomes a Top 10 hit on the Hot Christian Adult Contemporary chart. It’s #12 this week on the Hot Christian Songs chart. “Empty Me” stalled for a bit, but it’s been climbing the charts again recently. Congrats Chris!
