Miley Cyrus Leads Sales Charge
July 30, 2008


Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus easily scored her second #1 album this week as Breakout debuted on top of the sales charts by selling over 371,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Cyrus' last album, Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus, also started at #1 last summer with 326,000 copies sold. Breakout also marks the second-biggest sales week of the year for a female artist, following the 463,000 debut of Mariah Carey's E=MC2.

Country duo Sugarland bows at #2 with Love On The Inside, moving 314,000 units. Rounding out the Top 5 this week were the soundtrack to Mamma Mia with 168,000, Kid Rock's still surging Rock N Roll Jesus with another 92,750, and Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III with 85,000 units sold. Lil Wayne's album is just a stone's throw from double platinum status now.

Other debuts this week came from Nine Inch Nails’ The Slip, which debuted at #13 and moved 29,000 units despite being available online for free since May. One Day As A Lion, the collaboration between Rage Against the Machine's Zach de la Rocha and ex-Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore, bows at #28 with its self-titled EP, selling 17,000. This is Zack de la Rocha's first time on the charts since 2003. Candlebox’s Into the Sun, the Seattle band’s first album in a decade, debuted at #32 with 14,000 copies, R&B singer Noel Gourdin's After My Time came in at #36 with 14,000, and Blues legend Buddy Guy earns his highest charting album ever as Skin Deep enters at #68 with nearly 9,000 sold. It's the best sales week for Guy since SoundScan began tracking data in 1991.
