Arcade Fire Control The Chart, Lady Gaga Remixes Her Way Into The Top 10
Arcade Fire bump Avenged Sevenfold from the #1 position on Billboard‘s Top 200 Albums chart this week with The Suburbs. The Montreal band’s third album sold 156,000 copies out of the gate, just besting the 152,000 Eminem’s Recovery (#2 for a second week, likely hanging in there thanks to the video premiere of “Love The Way You Lie”) posted. See how the rest of the Top 10 played out after the jump.
Three other new entries grace the upper echelon of the Top 200—Bun B’s Trill O.G. (#4), Lady Gaga’s The Remix (#6) and Buckcherry’s All Night Long (#10).
Good ol’ Bun B. Remember this jam?
Lady Gaga’s The Remix, which sold 39,000 copies, marks her third release to crack the Top 10. Incidentally, her 2008 debut The Fame finally drops out of the upper tier this week (it was #9 on the previous chart).
Looking ahead, next week seems like it’s going to be all about Mike Posner, whose debut album 31 Minutes To Takeoff is currently lodged at #1 on iTunes.
