Beyoncé spends a second consecutive week at the top of the charts with her self-titled, fifth studio effort. After moving an impressive 617,000 copies (all courtesy of iTunes mind you), Beyoncé moves another 374,000 copies, this time with physical albums included in the totals. In two weeks, Mrs. Carter falls just short of the ‘milli’ mark, selling 991,000 copies. A platinum album in two short weeks – that’s pretty impressive.
Garth Brooks continues to put up sexy numbers as 6 CD/2 DVD boxed-set Blame It All On My Roots sold 199,000 copies (sitting at no. 2), yet another jump from the previous week. For a $25 box set, Brooks’ numbers are astounding. The rest of the top ten – Unsurprisingly – were “hold overs.” Of the previously efforts, the top six sold > than 100,000. The album sitting at no. 7 – Katy Perry’s PRISM – sold 99,000 copies according to billboard.com.
The burning question is about the sole notable new release, B.o.B’s Underground Luxury. Much like the so-so album it self, Underground Luxury was a bomb. It sold only 35,000 copies, debuting at a tepid no. 22.
