Prince Goes 3-4 For Another Week in the U.S.; Rob Zombie Debuts at 6

Prince remains the biggest selling veteran artist in the U.S. taking the numbers 3 and 4 spots on the Top 200 Albums.

There has been a flip-flop as far as his biggest selling album. The Very Best of Prince drops 2 to 4 this week while the soundtrack to Purple Rain remains at number 3.

The highest debuting album for the week at number 6 is Rob Zombie's with The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser. That gives Zombie six straight solo albums that have peaked between 5 and 8.

  • Hellbilly Deluxe (1998 / #5)
  • The Sinister Urge (2001 / #8)
  • Educated Horses (2006 / #5)
  • Hellbilly Deluxe 2 (2010 / #8)
  • Venemous Rat Regeneration Vendor (2013 / #7)
  • The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser (2016 / #6)
At 19 is the premier of Sixx:A.M.'s latest, Prayers For the Damned, Volume 1. The album beats the band's last release, Modern Vintage, by one spot but falls short of their best performance with 2011's This is Gonna Hurt which went to 10.

Martina McBride opens at 31 with Reckless, her lowest position for a studio album in 21 years. Since 1995's Wild Angels peaked at 77, McBride had released eight studio sets, the last six of which went to the top ten. Her last release, 2014's Everlasting, peaked at number 7.

The Grateful Dead are at 38 with the latest in their live archived project, Dave's Picks, Volume 18: Orpheum Theatre, San Francisco, CA 7/17/76. As with all of these releases, they are made on a limited basis and will, most likely, be sold out and off the charts by next week.

At 75 is the latest from the Jayhawks, Paging Mr. Proust. Like McBride, this is a major drop-off for the band, their lowest charting release in 16 years. Their last album, 2011's Mockingbird Time, was actually their career best, going to 38.

Finally, at 166, is the debut of the live Bad Company set Live 1977/Live 1979 and, at 179, the premier of Brian Eno's The Ship
