August 28, 2013


John Mayer
The latest album from Country artist Luke Bryan, Crash My Party, earns a second frame at #1 on the sales chart this week as it sells 159,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That is enough to hold off John Mayer from the top spot, as Mayer bows at #2 with Paradise Valley, selling 144,000 copies. This marks Mayer's fifth consecutive solo set to debut in the Top Two. His last two albums, 2012's Born and Raised and 2009's Battle Studies, both entered at #1. In total, all of Mayer's six studio albums have reached the Top 10, according to data from Billboard.

Mayer's album is one of five new debuts in the Top 10 this week. Super R&B trio TGT starts at #3 with Three Kings, moving 76,000. Combined, the three singers of TGT—Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank—have notched nine previous Top 10 albums on their own. Ginuwine has claimed four Top 10s, while Tyrese and Tank have two and three, respectively. The chart's third debut this week comes from veteran singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett, who bows at #4 with Songs From St. Somewhere, shifting 55,000. Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt takes a bow at #5 with his first solo effort, Doris, moving 49,000 units.

In the back half of the Top 10, Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines is #6 this week with 46,000, and the Now 47 compilation is #7 with 33,000. The Teen Beach Movie soundtrack slips to #8 with nearly 32,000 sold, and Rapper A$AP Ferg enters at #9 with his debut set, Trap Lord, shifting 32,000 units. Finally, Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail is #10 with 30,000 sold.
