Days of Their 'Lives'
This week's music charts
Going up? Aerosmith’s first new album in four years rode the sales elevator right to the top, as anticipated. But Nine Lives‘ tally for the week — just under 140,000 copies sold — came in well below the 300,000-plus first-week figures for recent releases from U2 and Live. Will a soon-to-be-announced year-and-a-half tour help Sony make good on its megamillion-dollar investment in the veteran rockers? Stay tuned. If Space Jam were a band, everybody’d be wanting to buy in: The soundtrack made another huge leap — to No. 2, a high to date — based on mammoth video sales and two tunes in the top 10.
