The Black Keys Top Michael Jackson’s ‘Xscape’ For First No. 1 Album

ceb4c3db3739e6f91950600bce4680d5 The Black Keys Top Michael Jackson’s ‘Xscape’ For First No. 1 Album

The Black KeysTurn Blue debuted at #1 on this week’s Billboard 200 chart, topping Michael Jackson‘s posthumous album Xscape, which debuted in the second spot. Considering that one half of the Keys called Xscape “some fucking bullshit that sucks so bad,” this feat was doubly satisfying for the band.

The Akron duo’s eighth album is their first to top the charts and third Top 10. It sold 164,000 copies (a healthy number in this day and age), edging out MJ’s 157,000. One thing that may have affected the numbers — as with their last album El CaminoTurn Blue is not on Spotify.

Last week’s #1, NOW 50, dropped to number three, and the Frozen soundtrack’s descent continues, with a #4 finish this week and a 26% decrease in sales. See the top ten albums of this week’s chart below.
