Miranda Lambert Leads Album Sales Chart, Emblem3, Lucy Hale Follow

The journey to making good on its title will require some time, but the album will at least get to celebrate a #1 sales position in the interim.

Immediately upon releasing Tuesday, Miranda Lambert’s new album “Platinum” reached number one in the iTunes Album Sales Chart. While a numerical sales forecast is not yet available, the album is also expected to reign over next week’s overall Billboard 200 album sales chart.

Coldplay’s “Ghost Stories,” which will likely earn a second week at number one on the current week’s Billboard 200 chart, is currently #2 on iTunes. It leads Emblem3’s “Songs from the Couch, Volume 1” (#3) and Lucy Hale’s debut “Road Between” (#4). Birdy’s “Fire Within” is currently in fifth position.

Other albums in the iTunes top 10 include the Broadway cast recording of “If/Then” (#6), Matisyahu’s “Akeda” (#7), the soundtrack to “The Fault in Our Stars” (#8), Brantley Gilbert’s “Just as I Am” (#9) and the pre-order for 5 Seconds of Summer’s self-titled debut (#10).
