Linkin Park’s “One More Light” Reaches #1 On US iTunes Sales Chart

The new Linkin Park album holds the top spot on iTunes.

Linkin Park’s new “One More Light” debuted on the US iTunes store late Thursday night.

It quickly shot to #1 on the all-genre album sales chart.

There it sits as of press time at 1:20AM ET.

Receiving a surge of purchasing interest in the wake of Chris Cornell’s passing, the 20th anniversary edition of Soundgarden’s “Superunknown” is currently #2 on the chart. Audioslave’s self-titled album, another Cornell project, is #3. Chris Stapleton’s “From A Room, Volume 1” (#4) and the “Guardians Of The Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 2” (#5) complete the Top 5.

The 25th anniversary edition of Soundgarden’s “Badmotorfinger” (#6), Harry Styles’ “Harry Styles” (#7), the new deluxe edition of blink-182’s “California” (#8), Zac Brown Band’s “Welcome Home” (#9), and Chris Cornell’s “Soundbook (Live)” (#10) also hold Top 10 positions.
