I'm pretty irritated that 53,000 people actually bought Tyga's album.

Damn, wish Greeley sold more. What a great group of guys and an amazing set of EP's 'the narrow road' and 'devil son' were.

Hurts to see Greeley Estates selling so little.

From a song that was released in 2010. But yeah, that's the number.

that's great for them. honestly surprised Brad Paisley only sold 100,000 though, he usually has huge debuts

He's never had a number one album.

Congrats to Paramore. Currently in contention with Silverstein for my favorite album so far in 2013.

There you go PMo, even if its a little lower than projections. Still think they can beat out what FOB does next week. Big fan of the album.

FOB's "My Songs" has been selling close to 100k a week ... I think they're gonna debut over 100k albums in the first week without much trouble.

They've been 1 or 2 on all the charts (with Kid Cudi) ... and I bet both go over 100k.

I know it's just a re-release, but I expected the Postal Service to sell more than that.

Still sad to see T&S numbers that low. Album needs a big push.

And congrats to Paramore! Not as much as brand new eyes, but that was expected. Hopefully Still Into You will catch on and keep the sales going. Ain't It Fun should become a single too.
