‘Frozen’ & Future Ice Iggy Azalea On The Album Chart

Chilly
Neither Future‘s Honest or Iggy Azalea‘s The New Classic were able to unseat Disney’s Frozen from the top of the Billboard 200 this week, as the soundtrack sold another 115,000 copies to bring its grand total to 2.5 million. Frozen remains the only album to sell more than a million copies in 2014.

In the end, the margin was slim between Honest (53,000) and The New Classic (52,000) — Billboard reports that less than a thousand copies separated them — but the former won out, and goes in at #2, leaving Azalea to debut at #3 with her first album. Still, Iggy can rest easy knowing that she’s currently got the two best-selling singles in the country, with Ariana Grande‘s “Problem” (which Azalea features on) perched at #1 on iTunes and her pair-up with Charli XCX, “Fancy,” sitting pretty at #2.

    “Iggy Iggy too Biggie.”

  • Deb

    Did everyone really expect her to have blockbuster first week sales? 55,000 is a respectable for someone who’s single only became a hit like a month ago. Even Lea Michele, who has had about 5 years of “Glee” behind her and a devoted fan base, and is a household name, could only muster 62,000 her first week out. The fact that Iggy isn’t a household name, and prior to “Fancy,” garnered buzz from rap fans for her mixtapes, is a pretty decent start.
    Time will tell if subsequent singles will live up to the success of “Fancy,” though after listening to the album nothing quite reaches those heights.
