Chris Brown And Katy Perry Top Album And Single Charts, Respectively
Chris Brown has landed his first #1 album on Billboard‘s Top 200 chart after F.A.M.E. sold 270,000 copies in its first week. This puts the temperamental singer ahead of Lupe Fiasco, who previously scored the second best first-week sales for an album this year. (Only Adele’s 21 has sold more—the record debuted on the strength of 352,000 copies.) Jennifer Hudson’s sophomore LP I Remember Me enters just behind Breezy, at #2 on the chart (165,000). Adele (#3), Mumford & Sons (#8) and Lupe Fiasco (#10) are the only holdovers from last week still hanging out in the Top 10. After Breezy and J-Hud come the debuts of the Strokes’ fourth album (and first in five years) Angles (#4, 89,000), Kirk Franklin’s Hello Fear (#5, 87,000), digital-only all-star charity compilation Songs For Japan (#6, 68,000), Panic! At The Disco’s Vices & Virtues (#7, 56,000) and Bobby V’s Fly On The Wall (#9, 38,000).
Meanwhile, over on the Hot 100, Katy Perry ends the six-week reign of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” and scores her fourth consecutive Teenage Dream chart-topper in the process with “E.T.” The song gives Perry a total of five #1 singles to her credit, following “I Kissed A Girl,” “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream” and “Firework.”
The music video for the Max Martin/Dr. Luke/Ammo-produced “E.T.” is scheduled to premiere on MTV tomorrow evening.
Finally, Sony reports that Adam Lambert’s Glam Nation Live DVD debuts at #1 on SoundScan’s Top Music Videos chart after selling 17,000 in its first week. We say that deserves a toss of glitter in the air!
