Quantcast
Selena's #1 is enough reason for Ken Bunt and his Disney Music Group team to don their mouse ears in triumph. Add the ascent of the "Teen Beach" soundtrack and you’ve got enough celebration for a Main Street Electrical Parade.

GO GO GOMEZ!!!!

Hollywood Sends Another Pop Princess to #1, Teen Beach Crests, Marc Anthony, Rich Gang Bow

Hollywood’s Selena Gomez scores the first #1 album of her career this week with Stars Dance, whipping up 95k and ruling our Album Chart. (Her last release, 2011’s When the Sun Goes Down, bowed with 78k and has sold 669k to date.)

That’s enough reason for Ken Bunt and his Disney Music Group team to don their mouse ears in triumph. Add the ascent of the Teen Beach soundtrack from #9 to #3 (54k, +113%) and you’ve got enough celebration for a Main Street Electrical Parade.

Two other debuts made the Top 10: Sony Music Latin’s Marc Anthony (#5, 36k) and Cash Money/Republic’s Rich Gang (#9, 22k). Anthony's prior album, 2010's Iconos, moved 24k and has done 225k RTD.

Jay Z (Roc-a-Fella/Roc Nation) moved down to #2 with 75k (-41%); Razor & Tie’s Kidz Bop Kids slipped to #4 with 40k (-34%). Republic Nashville’s Florida Georgia Line dipped just 5% (#6, 29k), while KidinaKorner/Interscope’s Imagine Dragons retained the #7 post (27k, +3%).

Further down the chart we find debuts from Vanguard’s Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (#13), The Rolling StonesHyde Park Live set for Virgin (#18) and Equal Vision’s We Came as Romans (#22).

Still need more Album Chart stimulation? You can pore over all the facts and figures by going here.

Streeting this week are Star Trak/Interscope’s Robin Thicke, Five Finger Death Punch (Prospect Park), Syco/Columbia’s Emblem3, Strange/INgrooves rapper Tech N9ne and the Backstreet Boys (BMG Rights Management/RED).
