What year is it, really? I mean, I know it’s “2012” but don’t you start to think time is cyclical when Lionel Richie, 1987’s coolest dad, suddenly has the number one album in the country for the second week in a row? I mean, dude has sold a ridiculous amount of his country duets album, Tuskegee–530,000 copies–and he’s expected to be on top for the foreseeable future. In 2012. Lionel Richie. Number one. A million dollars. Feel me? Crazy.
Elsewhere on the charts, Adele slides back to number three, but there were still somehow 88,000 people in America who haven’t purchased 21 yet. She’s set to pass 10 million sold sometime this summer. See more chart news on Hits Daily Double.
