Chart Watch America: Chart of December 10, 2011

Our weekly recap of veteran artists on the current American music charts. Chart highlights:
  • Bob Seger jumps back on the charts for the first time since 2006 (not counting the live album reissues earlier this year) with Ultimate Hits...Rock and Roll Never Forgets. It debuts at 19.
  • Michael Jackson premiers at a rather underwhelming 24 with the album of "reimagined" songs, Immortal. Considering that the tracks were not all that different from the original versions, it may show that fans are finally tiring of buying new compilations of Jackson's music.
  • Starting at 83 is 50 Words for Snow by Kate Bush. That is the worst debut for one of her albums since 1987's The Whole Story.
  • Even with sub-par showings for Michael Jackson and Kate Bush, the biggest surprise comes with the new album by Willie Nelson, Remember Me: Volume 1. It totally missed the top albums chart and only debuts at 40 on the Country Albums. His last album, Country Music, debuted at 20 on the Albums and 4 on the Country Albums charts.
  • The Rolling Stones return their Some Girls album, now in a deluxe edition, to the charts at number 46, but its the group's lead singer, Mick Jagger, that makes the biggest impact by a veteran artist on the Singles chart. As a featured artist on the new will.i.am single T.H.E. (The Hardest Thing Ever), he enters the Hot 100 at 36.
