Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper" Gets Number 3 Debut in the U.S.; Shakira Starts at 15

by VVN Music

The Beatles new deluxe editions of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has had a big debut, starting at 3 on the Billboard 200 and at the top of the Vinyl Albums.

This is the 195th week overall for the album on the chart where it has previously charted in its original run in 1967, where it spent fifteen weeks at number 1, along with a number of different returns over the years.

The highest debut by a veteran artist for a new album goes to Shakira whose part-Spanish/part-English El Dorado starts at number 15. Her last two albums, Sale el Sol (2010 / #7) and Shakira (2014 / #2) fared better but the album doesn't break her run of top fifteen studio releases that goes back seven albums and sixteen years.

Shaggy 2 Dope, one half of the Insane Clown Posse, opens at 72 with F.T.F.O.M.F., his third solo album and highest charting. 1994's Fuck Off! EP failed to chart and 2006's F.T.F.O. peaked at 88.

Danzig premier at 97 with Black Laden Crown, a big step upwards from their last studio album, Skeletons (2015 / #198). Overall, six of the eleven Danzig studio albums have made the top 100 with 1992's How the Gods Kill doing best, peaking at 24.

Foreigner's new compilation, 40: Forty Hits From Forty Years: 1977-2017, opens at 108, one step higher than their last full hits set, 2012's Juke Box Heroes. Their biggest hits collection remains 1982's Records which went to number 10.

On the Single's chart, Louis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber are in their fourth week at number 1 with Despacito.
