Shakira Bows At #2 Behind Frozen
April 2, 2014

While the soundtrack to Disney's Frozen earns its eighth week at #1 on the sales chart by selling another 161,000 copies, Shakira's self-titled set takes a bow at #2 this week. Shakira sold 84,000 copies, and it gives the singer her highest charting album ever, surpassing the #3 peak of her 2001 effort, Laundry Service. Debuting at #3 is the new Johnny Cash collection, Out Among the Stars, which consists of newly discovered material recorded in the 1980s. The album shifted 54,000 copies, giving the late Cash his sixth Top 10 album.

Hard rockers Memphis May Fire earned their biggest week ever with the new album, Unconditional. The set bows at #4 with 27,000 sold. Pharrell Williams' G I R L is #5 this week, selling another 25,000. Singer Erica Campbell, one-half of the sister duo Mary Mary, enters the chart at #6 with her first solo album, Help, shifting 23,000. Rapper YG sits at #7 this week with My Krazy Life, selling just under 23,000.

Barry Manilow collects his 14th Top 10 album as Night Songs debuts at #8 with 22,000 sold. Manilow achieved his first seven Top 10 albums between 1975 and 1979, notes Billboard, and he didn't return to the region until 2002's greatest hits set, Ultimate Manilow, reached #3. Meanwhile, a year after announcing their breakup,
My Chemical Romance is back on the chart with their own greatest hits set. May Death Never Stop You bows at #9 with 20,000 sold. Finally, Lorde's Pure Heroine is #10 this week with almost 20,000 sold.
