May 21st, 2015 9:58am EDT
The 'Pitch Perfect 2' Soundtrack Is Aca-Awesome At No. 1
Who had an “Aca-awesome” week on the Billboard 200? That would be the original motion picture soundtrack for Pitch Perfect 2, which debuts at #1. Pitch Perfect 2 definitely benefitted from the success of the original Pitch Perfect soundtrack and movie, hence the energetic 107,000 units start.

How Did Mumford & Sons New Album Perform?

May 14th, 2015 10:09am EDT
Mumford & Sons Take ‘Wilder Mind’ To No. 1 On Billboard
Unsurprisingly, Mumford & Sons cruised to a career second #1 album with Wilder Mind. Despite retooling their banjo-heavy style, plenty of people still joined the British band’s party – 249,000 to be exact, with most of those equating to copies sold. Go back three years earlier when Babel and mad banjo were still thriving, and the numbers were loftier to the tune of 600,000. Still, given the new normal of album sales and a new way to calculate the overall impact of an album, Mumford & Sons performed well.

It wasn’t all about Wilder Mind contrary to popular belief (or the majority of s...
