Album Charts: Taylor Swift Sells A Million, Lil Wayne Climbs To #4
This week's Billboard 200 is ruled by Taylor Swift, whose third album, Speak Now, took the no. 1 spot with a shopping 1.4 million copies sold in its first week. It's the largest sales week for an album since 50 Cent dropped The Massacre in 2005.
There's still a few albums making some noise though.
Lil Wayne's I Am Not a Human Being climbed one to no. 4 with 43,000, while and Eminem's Recovery went up three to no. 5 with 38,000.
Then later, at no. 15, is Trey Songz' Passion, Pain & Pleasure selling another 22,000 copies, as his album nears the gold mark.
As for new releases, Tech Nine's Seepage (EP) debuts at no. 55 with 7,400 copies sold.
That wraps things up this week. To cop any of these new releases, head over to Amazon.com.
