Projected to dominate the overall weekly sales race with a total in excess of 150,000, Meghan Trainor’s “Title” predictably faced no difficulty reaching the top of the iTunes sales chart.
The deluxe version of the album, in fact, grabbed the #1 position moments before its release day even technically began on the east coast.
Still in position of the #1 spot courtesy the deluxe version of “Title,” Trainor also claims the #7 position with the standard issue. That version enjoyed a stint in the top five earlier Tuesday but has since been leapfrogged by several other new releases.
The most successful of the non-Trainor new releases is Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Special.” Fueled by #1 single “Uptown Funk,” Ronson’s album is currently #2 on iTunes.
Taylor Swift’s juggernaut “1989” follows in #3, while Jazmine Sullivan’s new “Reality Show” is in charge of the #4 spot. The new “Kidz Bop 27” grabs the final top five position.
The US release of Ella Henderson’s “Chapter One” is #6 and thus one place ahead of the standard “Title.”
Fall Out Boy’s “American Beauty/American Psycho” pre-order is #8. Hillsong Young & Free’s new “This is Living” EP and J. Cole’s “2014 Forest Hills Drive” complete the top ten.
