September 18, 2013


Keith Urban
Keith Urban narrowly earned himself another #1 album this week as his latest, Fuse, bows atop the sales chart with just about 98,000 sold. Less than 3,000 copies separate Urban from The Weeknd, who arrives at #2 with Kiss Land, selling almost 96,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That's the closest margin between #1 and #2 since early January, when less than 2,000 copies separated the Les Misérables soundtrack and Mumford & Sons' Babel, according to Billboard.com. For Urban, Fuse is his fifth Top 10 album and second #1. As for The Weeknd, while Kiss Land is his first full-length studio effort, he did chart with 2012's Trilogy, which was a compilation of his mixtapes.

The crowded week of new debuts continues with 2 Chainz, who bows at #3 with B.O.A.T.S. II #METIME, selling 63,000 copies. Luke Bryan's Crash My Party is #4 this week with 53,000, and funky singer Janelle Monáe scores a #5 debut with The Electric Lady, shifting 47,000 units. This marks her best sales week yet as well as her first Top 10 album. One rung behind Monáe comes Arctic Monkeys, who claim their best sales week since 2007 and highest-charting album ever with AM. It enters the chart at #6 with 42,000 sold. The sixth and final arrival in the Top 10 this week is Sheryl Crow with her country set, Feels Like Home. The album bows at #7 with 36,000, giving Crow her ninth Top 10 album.

Last week's #2 album, Tamar Braxton's Love and War, falls to #8 this week with 35,000 sold, and Ariana Grande's Yours Truly drops to #9 with 31,000. Closing out the Top 10 is John Legend's Love in the Future, which sold another 30,000 units.
