On the albums side, it’s an avalanche of rookies with 13 newcomers besides J. Cole in the Top 20.

At #2 is A Perfect Circle’s first album in 14 years, Eat the Elephant (BMG), with Redneck Nation rapper Upchurch’s Creeker streaming in at #3.

Brothers Osborne, who will perform 4/23 on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, dock at #5 with their second album, Port Saint Joe (EMI Nashville).
