Paramore Earns First #1 Album
April 17, 2013


Paramore

Paramore has scored its first #1 album on the sales chart as the band's new, self-titled set debuts at #1 this week by selling 106,400 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album also scores #1 spots in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. For Paramore, it's the trio's first album since 2009's Brand New Eyes, which debuted and peaked at #2 with a 175,000 start.

In a blog post on their website, the band wrote, "This is so unbelievable. A #1 album?! The three of us are still in disbelief. We've never had a #1 album and if there were ever a Paramore album that we'd want most to get there, it would definitely be this one. So, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this gift."

Meanwhile, Country star Brad Paisley bows at #2 this week with his latest effort, Wheelhouse, shifting 100,000 units. Last week's #1 album, Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience, falls to #3 this week with another 98,000 sold, and Blake Shelton's Based on a True Story is steady at #4 with 61,000. Another Country act, Eric Church, bows at #5 with Caught in the Act: Live, selling 61,000, and The Band Perry slips to #6 with Pioneer, moving 56,000.
 
Hip-hop star Tyga bows at #7 this week with Hotel California, moving 54,000 copies in his first week. He's one step above his Young Money label founder, Lil Wayne, who sits at #8 with I Am Not a Human Being II, shifting another 42,000 copies. Volbeat comes in with its best sales week ever as its new album, Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies, opens at #9 with 39,000. And finally, Stone Sour fills out the Top 10 with House of Gold & Bones, Pt. 2, selling 35,000. It follows Part 1, which entered at #7 with 31,000 in November of last year. It also marks the band's
fourth Top 10 entry.
