'Les Miserables' soundtrack takes No. 1 on The Billboard 200
The “highlights” soundtrack from the new “Les Miserables” screen adaptation has finally made its way to No. 1 on The Billboard 200 album sales chart. The effort moved 92,000 copies, a 32% decline in sales over the previous week. It sold just a few hundred copies more than Mumford & Sons’ “Babel,” with 91,000 (No. 6 to No. 2 with +34%), keeping it from a repeat performance at the summit.
