Miranda Lambert’s ‘Platinum’ Bumps Coldplay Off The Top Of The Album Chart

Miranda Lambert kicks some excitement into the upper reaches of the Billboard 200 this week — and unseats Coldplay‘s Ghost Stories from the top spot in the process — by debuting at #1 with her fifth album Platinum. The LP, which was preceded by the single “Automatic,” sold 179,000 copies in its first week. Coldplay, in the meantime, fall four spots to #5 after moving another 46,000 copies of Ghost Stories. (That brings the British band’s latest up to a total of 512,000 sold in three weeks.)

Other activity within the Top 10 this week: 50 Cent goes in at #4 with fifth LP Animal Ambition (47,000), while the reissued versions of Led Zeppelin‘s Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III re-enter the main album chart at #7, #9 and #10, respectively. Also, the Frozen soundtrack moves back up to #2, while the Fault In Our Stars soundtrack, which contains tracks like Ed Sheeran‘s “All Of The Stars” and Charli XCX‘s “Boom Clap,” hops 10 positions to #8 following the film’s $48 million opening over the weekend.
