Maxwell earns his second No. 1 on The Billboard 200
Maxwell scores his second No. 1 record on The Billboard 200 as "BLACKsummers'night" bows at the top, with his best sales week ever, at that. The album moved 316,000, which outdoes his last set, "Now" in 2001, which also went No. 1 with 296,000.
Just keep the album's title in mind as Maxwell's career moves forward: the word is that this set is one of three in a trilogy, the other two to be titled "black SUMMERS'night" and "blacksummers'NIGHT." Have fun with that one, SoundScan.
The soundtrack to "Hannah Montana 3" debuts right behind at No. 2 with 137,000 copies, falling short of the other two TV predecessors, which both started at No. 1. The "Hannah Montana: The Movie" soundtrack bowed on the chart at No. 2 earlier this year.
The "Now 31" hits compilation falls 1-3 with 101,000, a 41% slip in sales from the week prior.
Rock-kinda-pop-punk-Warped-Tour-ish band All Time Low starts quite high on the chart at No. 4 with "Nothing Personal." The group's previous chart best came in 2007 with "So Wrong, It's Right" at No. 62.
There is no end in sight for Black Eyed Peas' "The E.N.D" on The Billboard 200, as the album holds tight to No. 5 for another week. Brad Paisley's "American Saturday Night" moves 2-6, Rob Thomas' "Cradlesong" falls 3-7 and Taylor Swift's "Fearless" ascends 11-8 (even though it had an uptick in sales of only 1%). Eminem's "Relapse" keeps No. 9 warm and Jonas Brothers' "Lines, Vines and Trying Times" ties up the top tier slilpping 8-10.
Overall sales are up 4.5% compared to last week, and are down only less than 1% compared to the same week last year. Sales total for the year are down 14% compared to last year's sum.
