Jack Johnson's latest tops Billboard's album chart
Image Credit: Hilary WalshJack Johnson tops Billboard‘s album chart this week. His latest set, To The Sea, debuts big with 243,000 copies sold. It’s the third No. 1 album of his career. Justin Bieber’s My World 2.0 hops up a spot to No. 2 with 52,000 units sold. Glee: The Music, Volume 3: Showstoppers slides back to No. 3, selling 45,000 copies. At No. 4, Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now holds steady selling 41,000 units.
The next two stay in the same spots they held last week. Usher‘s Raymond v. Raymond is at No. 5 with 35,000 albums sold. And Lady Gaga’s The Fame is at No. 6 with 33,000 copies sold. Carole King and James Taylor’s Live at the Troubadour jumps up two spots with 25,000 units sold. It’s No. 7.
The next highest entry on the chart is Taio Cruz‘s debut offering, Rokstarr. The album’s Ludacris-assisted lead single, “Break Your Heart” was a major hit at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 singles chart. But that success didn’t lead to a decent opening week for his full album. It arrives at No. 8, selling 24,000 copies. American Idol alum Clay Aiken’s Tried & True comes in at No. 9 with 22,000 copies sold. And closing out the top 10, Ke$ha‘s Animal lands at No. 10 with 20,000 copies sold.
