Six Top Ten Debuts In This Week's Billboard 200
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.20.2013



As we previously reported, Bon Jovi and David Bowie took spots #1 and #2 on the Billboard 200 with What About Now (96,000) and The Next Day (85,000) respectively.

The two albums lead a total of six top ten debuts this week. Coming in at #4 is the live album Passion: Let The Future Begin, which sold 48,000. It comes from the 2013 Passion Conference at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta in January. Most of its sales were from pre-orders at the conference. The annual event brought in 60,000 people and featured Chris Tomlin, Kristian Stanfill and Matt Redman. These acts and more appear on the set.

Mindless Behavior debuts at #6 with All Around the World, their second album after #1 Girl, which debuted and peaked at #7 in 2011 with 36,000. Eric Clapton's Old Sock is a spot below with almost 37,000, training #6 by a small amount. The new album was released through Clapton's Bushbranch Records and Surfdog Records. It is his first album after almost thirty years with Warner Bros and Reprise Records. His new album was distributed by Warner's indie arm, Alternative Distribution. It is #1 on the Independent Albums chart.

The soundtrack to Dave Grohl's Sound City documentary comes in at #8 with almost 37,000. It features names like Trent Reznor, Stevie Nicks and Paul McCartney.
