The Used's new album, Imaginary Enemy, will debut at #14 on the Billboard 200. So just to recap: Chiodos will open at #12, Manchester Orchestra hit #13, and The Used is right behind both.

The Arctic Monkeys have scored their first top-ten debut on the Billboard albums chart since 2007 with the excellent AM. Other notable debuts in this week's Top 20 include The Weeknd's first proper album Kiss Land at #2, 2 Chainz at #3 with B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time, Janelle Monae at #5 with The Electric Lady, and Rise Against check in at #19 with their rarities collection Long Forgotten Songs: B-Sides & Covers 2000 - 2013.

After Baauer's "Harlem Shake" reached #1 on the Billboard Top 100, Baauer and his label (Mad Decent) are being asked to pay royalties for the uncleared samples.
Both Mr. Musson and Mr. Delgado are seeking compensation from Mad Decent Records, which put out the single last year. The label and Mr. Rodrigues declined to comment. But the tale of how an obscure dance track containing possible copyright violations rose to the top of pop charts illustrates not only the free-for-all nature of underground dance music but also the power of an Internet fad to create a sudden hit outside the major-label system.
