ScHoolboy Q

Rapper ScHoolboy Q sees his major-label debut album, Oxymoron, bow at #1 on the sales chart this week with 139,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Oxymoron gives the rapper his best-selling album, following his two previous independent releases: 2011's Setbacks and 2012's Habits & Contradictions. Signed to Top Dawg Entertainment, the new album is ScHoolboy Q's first in a joint-venture with Interscope Records. It's also the first #1 album for the Top Dawg imprint, notes Billboard. Behind Oxymoron on the chart is the soundtrack to Disney's Frozen, which sits at #2 with 91,000 sold. It's the ninth straight week the album has spent in one of the top two positions on the chart, and it earned the Oscar on Sunday night for Best Original Song for "Let It Go." Meanwhile, Beck earns his second-highest charting album ever, as Morning Phase comes in at #3 with just over 87,000 sold. Beck has only charted higher with 2005's Guero, which debuted at #2. In total, Morning Phase is Beck's fifth Top 10 effort.

New releases continue to dominate the Top 5 as Kid Cudi's latest effort, Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, debuts at #4 with 87,000. The digital-only set was sold exclusively on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon MP3 starting on February 25, and it was just released to other digital retailers on March 3. Latin artist Romeo Santos bows at #5 with Formula: Vol. 2, shifting 85,000.

Dierks Bentley's Riser enters the chart at #6 this week with 63,000 sold, marking his highest-charting set and best sales week since 2009's Feel That Fire. Fellow Country star Eric Church is #7 with The Outsides, moving 43,000 units. The Fray's Helios is the sixth and final debut in this week's Top 10, as the band's latest album starts at #8 with 37,000. This give The Fray its third Top 10 release. Finally, the Now 49 compilation is #9 this week with 34,000, and
Beyoncé's self-titled set is #10 with 32,000.
