Lea Michele’s “Louder” Leads Pharrell’s “G I R L” on iTunes Sales Chart

Expected to be an immensely front-loaded album, there is no guarantee it will maintain its position for more than a few hours, let alone for more than a few days.

But for now, Lea Michele’s “Louder” holds the most coveted position in the American music industry. It is the top-selling album on iTunes.

As of press time, the “Glee” star’s debut album reigned above several high-profile new releases on the iTunes Album Sales chart. Those new entries include Pharrell’s “G I R L” (#2), Rick Ross’ “Mastermind” (#3) and American Authors’ “Oh What a Life.”

Riding continued momentum–and an Oscar win for its key song “Let it Go”–the “Frozen” soundtrack claims fifth on the chart.

The balance of the top ten includes the super deluxe edition of Ross’ new album (#6), Beck’s recent release “Morning Phase” (#7), Eli Young Band’s new “10,000 Towns” (#8), KiD CuDi’s “Satellite Flight” (#9) and Schoolboy Q’s “Oxymoron” (#10).
