We celebrate this week with 4 debut milestones.
Let us start with HAC which has two debut milestone in the top 50 this week. Adam Lambert’s “Another Lonely Night” is the second single from his third studio album. It goes for adds this week on HAC and Pop, but has already entered the chart on HAC. Kelly Clarkson’s “Piece by Piece” went for adds on the HAC format last week and entered the top 50 this week.
Over on AC, Haley Reinhart debuts “Can’t Help Falling In Love” in the top 50. What? Why is Haley charting with a cover of a Elvis song? Billboard explains the very successful Gum ad that actually got the song to chart on the Digital Songs chart. Go Haley!
Finally, we have Colton Dixon debuting with “Limitless”. I’m not sure what album that is from. It appears on his “Anchor” album, but he released an acoustic version for it on “Calm” and “Calm Before the Storm”. In any event, it debuted in the top 50 on CAC.
Also, VEDO returns to the top 40 on UAC with “Classic”.
On the album front, Billboard reports that Chris Stapelton repeats at the top of the BB200 and sales charts after his career-making CMA performance. They also go on to say some nonsense about how his “Traveller” is one of only two albums to last for two weeks at the top of the chart – the other one being Luke Bryan. That’s just silly because The Weeknd spent three weeks on top of the chart just over a month ago. How quickly they forget. Kendrick Lamar and Meek Mills also repeated.
Carrie Underwood’s “Storyteller” spends its third week in the top 10 at number 9 with 33K in combined sales. Little Mix did not chart high enough to make the BB200 report.
HDD is reporting a close race between Bieber and One Direction for the top of the chart this week with The Biebs having a slight advantage for now (425-450K albums, 475K-500K combined vs 415-440K, 450-475K combined). The competition is helping both albums exceed early predictions. Chris Young from Nashville Star is also debuting this week with 50-55K, 55-60K.
