Justin Timberlake once again was at the top of the charts last week selling another 317,000 copies of his new album. That brings the total to about 1.2 million copies. Lil Wayne debuted at number two with 217,000 copies of his latest and Blake Shelton came in at number three with close to 200,000 copies sold. More notable album sales are included below. Overall album sales in this past chart week totaled 6.52 million units, up 7% compared with the sum last week and up 6% compared with the comparable sales week of 2012. Year to date album sales stand at 74.02 million, down 5% compared to the same total at this point last year.

I thought conditions and the color morale would sell better. And that's a good number for cartel considering they released all on their own. Hopefully they tour soon. Also, I thought Renacer would sell more but this isn't senses fails most commercial cd but amazing nonetheless.

That's not like top 10 or anything, just some numbers and albums that Tate picked out to let people know how they're doing. Fairly average amount for an album that has no big singles and just kind of around.

Sales must be down this year overall because everyone in the world already owns that Adele album.

Renacer* couldn't even cross the 7,000 mark, which is sad because that album is just so damn great.

To be fair his last 'I Am Not A Humanbeing' album sold less. His last 'The Carter' album nearly sold a million first week. This is just an official mix tape kind of even though its horrible.
