What’s more surprising, that Now That’s What I Call Music, Volume 6 actually outsold last week’s totals, or that Backstreet brother Aaron Carter saw his sales increase about 80 percent in a single week? Either way, clearly it’s a pop, pop, pop, pop world that we’re living in.
Now 6, still at No. 1, has now sold more than 1 million copies in just two weeks, selling almost 547,000 this time around. Aaron’s Party (Come Get It), which sat at No. 15 a week ago, sells more than 105,000 copies, vaulting to No. 4. Between those two albums, we find Tupac Shakur’s posthumous Until the End of Time at No. 2 (selling 196,000), and the ubiquitous Shaggy, whose Hot Shot sells yet another 170,000 copies at No. 3.
Everyday, from Dave Matthews Band, comes in at No. 5, selling 83,000 copies, while Ginuwine’s The Life drops three spots to No. 6 in its second sales week, moving another 91,000. Puff Daddy/P. Diddy protÃˆgÃˆs Dream move from No. 21 to No. 7, selling more than 91,000 copies (71 less than Ginuwine) of It Was All a Dream, while Dido’s No Angel sells 90,000 at No. 8.
After several almost-ran weeks, Lifehouse’s No Name Face finally cracks the Top 10, selling almost 90,000 copies (less than 100 fewer than Dido) at No. 9, while Nelly’s Country Grammar mops up the Top 10, selling almost 89,000 copies in the final spot.
