Ke$ha Drinks And Drives Straight To The Top Of The Chart

Kesssssssha Ke$ha Drinks And Drives Straight To The Top Of The ChartAfter last week’s reported chart record where solo female artists occupied the first five positions of Billboard’s Top 200 Albums tally for the first time, the ladies narrowly missed out on capturing the top six positions this week. (Damn you, Alvin and the Chipmunks!)

Taco-loving Ke$ha now sets two records of her own, however—not only did she have the best ever digital sales for an album by a new artist, she also scored the biggest first week in SoundScan’s history for an artist’s debut album released in January. So how did this all play out on the charts? Hop below!

Ke$ha’s Animal was initially projected to sell around 105,000 in its first week out of the gate, but actually moved 152,000 copies, according to Billboard. That was enough to land the alcoholic album of pop jams at #1 and bump Susan Boyle’s I Dreamed A Dream down to #2. Scottish warbler Boyle had previously maintained a stranglehold on the Top 200 for six weeks.

Billboard also notes that Ke$ha’s parody-inspiring hit “TiK ToK” maintains the #1 spot on the Hot 100 Singles chart for a fourth week, while her “Blah, Blah Blah” debuts at #7.

But enough about this wanton boozehound! American Idol Season 6 runner-up Katharine McPhee also sees her latest, Unbroken, dent the album chart this week. Hits Daily Double has Kat’s sophomore LP coming in at #27, though final Billboard numbers won’t be published until tomorrow.

Looking ahead, Vampire Weekend’s just-released Contra could possibly swoop and and take a bite out of Ke$ha’s Animal next week.

The Top 10 of Billboard’s Top 200 Albums:

1. Ke$ha, Animal
2. Susan Boyle, I Dreamed A Dream
3. Lady Gaga, The Fame
4. Alica Keys, The Element Of Freedom
5. Mary J. Blige, Stronger With Each Tear
6. Various, Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
7. Taylor Swift, Fearless
8. The Black Eyed Peas, The E.N.D.
9. Justin Bieber, My World
10. Lady Gaga, The Fame Monster
