As expected, Coldplay top Billboard this week, moving 458,000 copies of their new album, Mylo Xyloto. That was good for the third best debut of the year, behind Lil Wayne and Lady Gaga. It’s the band’s third album to top Billboard’s sales chart.
Elsewhere on the charts, Kelly Clarkson hit number two, selling 170,000 copies of her new album, Stronger. Adele’s 21 stays strong at number four, in only the album’s second week under number three since February (which is astonishing).
Jazz boho legend Tom Waits hit the top ten this week as well, coming in at number six with an impressive 61,000 copies. For more chart news, go to Hits Daily Double.
