Buckcherry, Atlas Genius Lead Album Sales Newcomers
A quiet album sales week without any blockbuster newcomers produced a chart similar to that of the prior week, with holdovers from Mumford & Sons, Bruno Mars and Josh Groban remaining in the top five despite significant reductions in their sales tallies.
With Taylor Swift’s “Red” and the Grammys compilation album dropping out of the top five, “NOW 45″ and the self-titled Lumineers album also found their way into the pinnacle cluster.
One would have to look below number twenty to find the highest-charting newcomer. That album, “Confessions” by Buckcherry, garnered about 15,711 debut sales according to preliminary data from Hits Daily Double.
The album sits at number twenty five on the hits chart, although with so many albums in the 15-20,000 range, it is unclear where it will fall on the more-authoritative Billboard 200. That chart, based on Nielsen Soundscan data, releases Wednesday.
Next among newcomers was Atlas Genius’ “When it was Now.” The full-length debut from the highly-touted alt-rock act sold approximately 14,190 copies.
