Shakira’s Album Holds Atop Sales Chart, Karmin’s “Pulses” Not Top 10

Update: Early sales projections are in, and Shakira’s “Shakira” looks poised to reign convincingly as the week’s top debut with 70-75,000 sales. Full details here.

Twenty four hours have passed since its official launch, and Shakira’s self-titled new album remains the top-seller on iTunes.

As of early Wednesday morning, the latest from the Colombian superstar is holding onto the top spot on the digital retailer’s Album Sales chart.

Four tracks from the new release, meanwhile, are present in the iTunes Single Sales chart. As of press time, “Can’t Remember to Forget You (featuring Rihanna)” was number 19, “Empire” was number 29, “Medicine (featuring Blake Shelton)” was number 73 and “Dare (La La La)” was number 120.

The enduring “Frozen” soundtrack presently claims second place on the album sales chart, while Memphis May Fire’s new “Unconditional,” Kari Jobe’s new “Majestic” and Christon Gray’s new “School of Roses” complete the top 5.

One would have to look down to number eleven to find Karmin’s debut studio LP “Pulses.” The Black Keys’ “Turn Blue” pre-order (#6), “Glee: The Music – Celebrating 100” (#7), Erica Campbell’s “Help” (#8), Skrillex’s “Recess” (#9) and Johnny Cash’s “Out Among the Stars” (#10) all hold stronger positions.
