Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! “Weird Al” Yankovic’s ‘Mandatory Fun’ Becomes His First #1 Album

bc011b95cd8957b5dcd6d297d8e5b863 Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! “Weird Al” Yankovic’s ‘Mandatory Fun’ Becomes His First #1 Album

Whatever magical potion of longevity “Weird Al” Yankovic bathes in (we’re referring to his career here, sickos), it’s certainly doing the trick. The curly-weaved pop comedian chucked out eight music videos for songs off his new LP Mandatory Fun over eight days starting last week, and the resultant payoff is the first chart-topping album of Yankovic’s 31-year music career.

In total, Mandatory Fun sold 104,000 copies in its first week out of the gate, i.e. double the amount of what last week’s chart-topping album, Sia‘s 1000 Forms Of Fear, moved — a sure sign, music lovers, that the Alpocalypse is indeed nigh.

See where the rest of this week’s movers and shakers wound up in the upper tier of the Billboard 200 below.
