Lana Del Rey's Ultraviolence Debuts At #1
June 25, 2014


Lana Del Rey
As expected, singer Lana Del Rey's new album Ultraviolence debuted at #1 on the Nielsen SoundScan sales chart, with 182,000 copies sold. It is the follow-up to her platinum-selling album Born To Die, which put the controversial singer-songwriter on the map. According to Billboard, Ultraviolence gives Del Rey the biggest sales week for a solo female artist since Beyoncé's self-titled album moved 310,000 copies at the end of December.

Meanwhile, UK singer Sam Smith made history, as his debut album In The Lonely Hour sold 166,000 copies to put him at #2. This gives Smith the best-selling debut album by a solo UK male artist in SoundScan history. Rockers Linkin Park debut at #3 with their latest effort, The Hunting Party. It is the band's first album to miss the #1 spot since their debut, Hybrid Theory, which peaked at #2 in 2002 according to Billboard.

The unstoppable juggernaut that is the Frozen soundtrack claims the #4 slot this week, while Country icon Willie Nelson debuts at #5 with his new release Band Of Brothers. Nelson promoted the album in a major partnership with QVC recently, which helped boost sales.

Last week's #1 album was Platinum from Miranda Lambert and it falls to #6 this week, followed by Jack White with Lazaretto at #7. Singer/actress Jennifer Lopez sees her newest album A.K.A. debut at #8, while EDM star Deadmau5 debuts at #9 with while(1<2). The top ten was rounded out by Brantley Gilbert's Just As I Am.

There is a new #1 atop the singles chart, as "Rude" by Magic takes the top slot from Iggy Azalea's hit "Fancy."
