Amos Lee Is Tops In Another Record Low Sales Week For A #1 Album

Feb 2nd, 2011 // 2 Comments

Philadephia crooner Amos Lee has the good fortune to land his first #1 album on the Billboard Top 200 this week, with his fourth LP Mission Bell. That said, with only 40,000 copies sold out of the gate, Lee  also has the misfortune of charting the worst sales week for a #1 record, thus breaking Cake’s record low from only two weeks ago. So far no one is doing much of anything to keep 2011 from going down as the Year That Finally Killed Off The Album. See the rest of the Top 10 below.

The Top 10 of Billboard‘s Top 200 chart:

1. Amos Lee, Mission Bell *new* *1 week*
2. Iron & Wine, Kiss Each Other Clean *new*
3. Nicki Minaj, Pink Friday
4. Various Artists, 2011 Grammy Nominees *new*
5. Bruno Mars, Doo-Wops & Hooligans
6. Mumford & Sons, Sigh No More
7. Taylor Swift, Speak Now
8. Wisin & Yandel, Los Vaqueros: El Regreso *new*
9. Kidz Bop, Kidz Bop 19
10. The Decemberists, The King Is Dead


  1. Looks like Nicki Minaj is holding up well.

  2. ZMH

    on the positive said, acts like amos lee and decemberist do get some recognition. i think sometimes, indie artists outselling big budget records gets to show how awful the major labels are doing their business.
