Mention must be made of KidinaKorner/Interscope’s Imagine Dragons, who nabbed the #7 spot with 36k (a 39% bump), powered by a $7.99 iTunes sale.

WARS WIN!

sensibility/Columbia’s Americana Duo
Rule Our Album Sales Chart

The Civil Wars’ self-titled sophomore album (sensibility/Columbia) bows atop our Album Sales Chart this week with 117k.


That blows away the sales debut of their prior release, 2011’s Barton Hollow—though that set has racked up almost 650k RTD (not to mention two Grammys)—and spiked  last week as the new album streeted.

UMe’s debuting hits comp Now 47 takes the #2 spot with 83k, followed by last week’s topper, Star Trak/Interscope’s Robin Thicke, with 63k (-63%). Jay Z’s Grail (Roc-a-Fella/Roc Nation) is parked at #4 with 48k (-22%), while Disney’s Teen Beach ST rounds out the Top Five with 38k (-15%).

Two other debuts appear in the Top 10: Sumerian’s heavy rockers Asking Alexandria (28k, #8) and Motown Gospel’s Tye Tribbett (26k, #9). Is it wrong that we’d like to see them forced to duet?

The week’s other debuts? Meh. You can check their stats here.

The week’s greatest gainer was Glassnote’s Mumford & Sons, which flew up 18 spots to #21 with 13k (+55k). But mention must be made of KidinaKorner/Interscope’s Imagine Dragons, who nabbed the #7 spot with 36k (a 39% bump), powered by a $7.99 iTunes sale.

Streeting today is Capitol Nashville’s ballcap-free troubadour Luke Bryan (whose prior set Tailgates & Tanlines re-entered this week’s chart at #31 with 9k).

Now if you’ll excuse us, we have to crank out about 759 more pot jokes for the HITS Anniversary Issue. You know how we said “this shit writes itself?” Well, not so much.
