Red Hot Chili Peppers Top Album Sales, Digital Albums, Rock Albums & Alternative Albums, Start at Number 2 on Top 200

by VVN Music

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have the number 1 album in Overall Album Sales, Digital Album Sales, Rock Albums and Alternative Albums and the number 2 album on the Billboard 200.

As we explained last week, the Billboard 200 is now based on a combination of album sales, album equivalent tracks (10 downloaded tracks = 1 album) and streaming (1,500 streams = 1 album) so, even though the Red Hot Chili Peppers outsold Drake 3-to-1, Drakes streaming numbers pulled them ahead for the week.

Radiohead's A Moon Shaped Pool, which debuted in May and had fallen off the Top 200, made its way back to number 5 this week after the CD and Vinyl versions of the album were released. Pool is also the top selling Vinyl Album this week along with Independent and Tastemaker Album.

At 9 is the latest from Mumford & Sons who, alone, are not veterans, but add in Senegal artist Baaba Maal, who has been recording since the late-80's, and they make our list.

The new trio made up of Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs debuts at 33 with case/lang/veirs. For lang, the album comes in one spot lower than her last effort, Sing It Loud with The Siss Boom Bang (2011). It is the best showing ever for Veirs whose only other charting album was July Flame (2010 / #124). Meanwhile, Case's last two albums went to the top twelve.

The veteran experimental rock band Swans premiers at 151 with The Glowing Man. It is only the third of their fourteen albums to make the charts with the best showing being 2014's To Be Kind (#38).

Canada's Tragically Hip start at 178 with Man Machine Poem, their eighth charting album in the U.S. and a drop from their last, 2012's Now For Plan A, which went to 129.

Last week's top selling album by a veteran artists, Strange Little Birds by Garbage, plummets in its second week from 14 to 168.

On the singles side, Justin Timberlake's Can't Stop the Feeling continues to make a case for it being the hit of the summer as it holds at number 2 and tops Digital Songs, Adult Pop and Adult Contemporary charts.
