Barbra Streisand, De La Soul & Juan Gabriel Debut in the Top 30 Albums

by VVN Music

Barbra Streisand officially scored her eleventh number 1 album in the U.S. with Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway. See our previous article for all of the marks this album sets.

Streisand wasn't the only veteran artist to do well with debuts this week. De La Soul have the second highest charting album of their career with ...and the Anonymous Nobody. Out of their eight studio albums, three have made the top twenty with 2000's Art Official Intelligence going to number 9. This week, ...the Anonymous Nobody gives them their second highest, debuting at number 12, and beating 1996's Stakes is High which went to 13.

...and the Anonymous Nobody is also at number 1 on both the Vinyl and Rap Albums charts.

The recent passing of Juan Gabriel has sent four of his albums back onto the Top 200 including the debut of Mis Numero 1...40 Aniversario at 28. Also charting is Los Duo 2 (#56), Los Duo (#88) and Vestido de Etiqueta: Por Edudardo Magallanes (#128).  Around the rest of the charts, Gabriel has the top Catalog Album with Mis Numero 1...40 Aniversario and number 1 Regional Mexican Album with Duos & Interpretaciones.

At 77 is the premier of One Sided War by Stryper singer Michael Sweet. It is the first of his eight solo albums to make the Top 200. One Sided War is also the top Christian Album.

Prophets of Rage, the band made up of Tim Commerford, Tom Morello and Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine and Chuck D and DJ Long of Public Enemy, starts at 84 with their first EP, The Party's Over.

Butch Walker opens at 143 with Stay Gold. The album falls short of the chart position achieved by his last two releases, The Spade (2011 / #105) and Afraid of Ghosts (2015 / #104).

Finally, at 186, is the first album by Banks & Steelz, the new band made up of Paul Banks from Interpol and RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan.
