Carrie Underwood took the top place on this week's charts, selling over 270,000 copies of Blown Away. Norah Jones was in second and...yes...NOW 42 was third. Adele had her weakest sales week of 21 in a long while, finishing fourth with just over 77,000 units moved and B.o.B. debuted at fifth with 74,000. Jack White added another 62,000 to his total while finishing 7th, while fun. added another 11,000 to its ongoing strong sales performance. The Avengers soundtrack sold 26,000 copies.
fun. sold another 20k of Some Nights last week, landing them at number ten on the charts. Last week's champion, The Boss, brought in another 57k, landing him at number four. Adele sold another 156k, but only hit number two, as One Direction (oh, just what the fuck is this??) grabbed the number one spot.
Adam seems to be having a blast down at SXSW so far. I've heard he's already gone through all of the stickers I sent him. Umm, shit. Well, he's checking out fun. right now and just sent in this video of them playing "Carry On." Nate sounds so spot on, I'm bummed it's cut short.
In other, totally relevant, news: Lueda's officially in the USA and on her way down to Austin. Make sure you've RSVP'd so you can hear her DJ at our party Friday night.
The new version of The Sims 3, called Showtime, will feature a variety of songs sung in "Simlish." The Acceptanceversion from an old version of the game, remains my favorite. This time, Fun. and Patrick Stump are both going to be included. You can listen to Patrick’s single "This City" and fun.'s "We Are Young" -- in "Simlish" -- in the replies.
