SERIOUSLY, HAVE WE RUN OUT OF ALBUM TITLES?: Moving beyond Barbra Streisand's Number One album (196,000 copies), Chris Brown is Number Two on the charts with 146,000 sales. His album is called X, with a capital letter, as opposed to the smaller-case x Ed Sheeran launched earlier this year. Although the R&B star carries baggage due to his treatment of former girlfriend Rihanna, he maintains a decent sales career — 2011's F.A.M.E. sold 270,000 copies in its first week, 2012's Fortune sold 135,000 and all six of his albums have been Top 10. September thus far has been jammed with star power, given new albums by Maroon 5, Jeezy, Wiz Khalifa, Tim McGraw and Streisand, and low sales.
