Bon Jovi and David Bowie Lead Four Other Debuts in Billboard 200 Top 10
Bon Jovi posts their fifth Billboard 200 chart-topper this week with their new album "What About Now", selling 101,000 copies based on sales results released by Nielsen SoundScan. It's also the rock band's third straight No. 1 album and 12th studio set to reach the top 10.
Taking the runner-up slot is David Bowie's comeback album "The Next Day" with 85,000 units sold. Although it falls short of taking the top spot in the albums chart, it gives the iconic singer his highest-charting album since "Station to Station" reached the No. 3 spot back in 1976.
Both debuts lead four other albums who make a strong showing in the top ten this week. Christian album "Passion: Let the Future Begin" enters the chart at No. 4 with 48,000 while teen quartet Mindless Behavior makes it to No. 6 with the 37,000 sales garnered by their sophomore album "All Around the World".
Trailing the R 'n' B group by a very narrow margin is legendary rocker Eric Clapton's whose new album "Old Sock" settles for the No. 7 spot. Rounding up the six debuts is Dave Grohl's "Sound City: Real to Reel" soundtrack which also with an almost identical 37,000 total sits at No. 8 after Clapton.
As for the other four spots in the top ten, last week's No. 1, Luke Bryan's "Spring Break...Here to Party", moves down two places to No. 3 with 61,000, down 59% from last week. Consistent top 10 mainstay Bruno Mars' "Unorthodox Jukebox" is bumped from No. 3 by Bryan, slipping two spots down to No. 5 with 43,000, down 17%.
Another act holding on to the top ten is another mainstay, Mumford & Sons' Grammy-winning album "Babel", falling from No. 4 to No. 9 with 31,000, down 13%. Finally, the last spot is taken by Jimi Hendrix's posthumously-released "People, Hell and Angels" which posts the biggest decline from No. 2 to No. 10, managing only a 30,000 output, down 58%.
