Now 30 Claims Top Spot on Billboard 200, Somehow

    After moving a stunning 146,00 units,

    Now 30

    , the 30th iteration of what amounts to a 15 song CD of the top 15 songs on Billboard the week the CD is burned, claimed the top spot on Billboards Top 200 album chart. How that is possible, I will never know, since you can essentially buy the tracks individually for weeks before they ever come out as a Now disc, which would seem to make them useless.

     

    Less head-scratching is the number two album, which is Miley Cyrus’

    Hannah Montana

    soundtrack, that moved 139,000 copies. Keri Hilson’s

    In A Perfect World…

    , after being delayed for almost a year, moved 94,000 copies, and came in at number 4. 

     

    Jim Jones

    Pray IV Reign

    also hit the top ten, clocking in at number 9 with 43,000 copies sold, far less than what he probably imagined. [
