Impressive.

Over on the digital single chart, Taylor and Meghan continue to battle it out. Meghan is dominating the Airplay charts, but Taylor released “Shake it Off” to Spotify so she may catch up on the streaming charts. “All About the Bass” will likely have it’s third week at the top of the Hot 100.

    Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga (Interscope) 115-125k

    In a related story, if Tony Bennett takes #1 right after Barbra Streisand, my mom will be seriously kvelling. (9/24a)

  4. Not surprised. It has been awhile since her last album. But I stated here a few weeks ago, that her released singles from this album (Ex. “I Can’t Describe”, “Walk It Out”) hasn’t done as well on the charts as the singles from her last album (Ex. “Where You At”).

  5. Jackie Evancho is well down from the 1st wk sales of her last album as well

  6. I saw Jennifer performing a song on Seth’s show last night. It may have been her second song as I did not see the first. But it was not very good. She did not sell it at all. Very underwhelming. I like a lot of her performances, but this one had no punch and would not be helpful to up album sales. Maybe the first one was better.

  7. Jennifer performed her new single, “Dangerous” on Late Night With Seth Myers. This is her 4th single from her new album. Her previous singles in order of release was “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel) f. T.I.,” “Walk It Out f. Timbaland,” & “It’s Your World f. R. Kelly.”

  8. Barbra is uber talented and so gorgeous. I’m not such a fan of Bruce Springsteen. His success is a mystery to me.
