11 Dec Garth Brooks Holds Off Britney Spears; Knocks One Direction From Number 1 Spot!
Garth Brooks is sitting pretty at number one this week on the Billboard Album Charts with a box set that is only available at Wal-Mart.
Brooks set “Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences,” sold 146,000 in its second week on the charts, preventing Britney Spear’s new album “Britney Jean” from debuting at number one with only 107,000 copies sold, her lowest number ever for first week sales and debuting at number 4.
Garth’s set includes 6 CD’s and 2 DVD’s and it is his 9th number one album. The set is only $29.99 for everything and is on sale for less than $25.00. It is the first multi-disc album to hit number one since 2003.
One Direction dropped to number 2 with 117,000 copies sold.
Sales are still down when comparing numbers to last years unit’s moved, a trend that the music industry just cannot stop.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Now did each CD count 6 times as a sale or did the box set just count as one sale? Hmm….
