On the Charts: Chris Brown Finds Success With 'X'

On the Charts: Chris Brown Finds Success With 'X' | CHRONYX.be : we love urban music in the charts ! | Scoop.it

By Steve Knopper | September 24, 2014
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.

BEYONCE's visual album leads for third week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart

BEYONCE's visual album leads for third week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart | CHRONYX.be : we love urban music in the charts ! | Scoop.it

• Beyoncé's self-titled album racks up a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200—the longest run at No. 1 for any album since last April. "Beyoncé" sold another 310,000 copies during the week ending Dec. 29, according to Nielsen SoundScan, down 17% compared with the previous week. • The album has now sold 1.3 million in its first 17 days of release in the United States.
"Beyoncé" is the first album to spend three weeks at No. 1 since Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" logged three straight frames atop the list (April 6-April 20, 2013). "Beyoncé" is the first album by a woman to notch three weeks at No. 1 since Taylor Swift's "Red" claimed seven weeks at the top (non-consecutively) in late 2012 and early 2013.
• "Beyoncé" is also the first album since 2009 to sell more than 300,000 copies in each of its first three weeks. ("Beyoncé" debuted with 617,000, then sold 374,000 a week ago.) The last album to move in excess of 300,000 in its first three chart weeks was Susan Boyle's "I Dreamed a Dream." It actually moved more than 500,000 in each of its first five weeks, from the charts dated Dec. 12, 2009, through Jan. 9, 2010.
• Finally, with 1.3 million sold in three chart weeks, "Beyoncé" is the fastest-selling album by a woman since Swift's "Red" plowed through 1.6 million in its first two weeks. It debuted with 1.2 million on the chart dated Nov. 10, 2012, and then sold another 344,000 in its second week.
