Riding the success of his smash “Nothin’ On You,” B.o.B’s The Adventures of Bobby Ray debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week. Selling 84,000 copies, it’s a low topper. But I’m sure B.o.B will happily take the crown anyway. The Atlanta native is the first solo male act to have a debut hit No. 1 since Rick Ross’ Port of Miami did so in August of 2006.
Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now spends its 14th straight week in the top five and second in a row at No. 2, selling 76,000 copies. U.K. rock band Bullet for My Valentine’s Fever sold 71,000 and debuted at No. 3. Justin Bieber’s “My World 2.0” falls one spot to No. 4 with 69,000. AC/DC’s soundtrack to Iron Man 2, which features their greatest hits, dropped one slot to No. 5 with 52,000. And Usher’s inner battle, Raymond v. Raymond, dropped from No. 5 to No. 6 with 48,000. Melissa Etheridge’s Fearless Love debuts at No. 7 with 46,000. Actress and singer Miranda Cosgrove’s debut album Sparks Fly only flew to No. 8 with 36,000. Now 33’s compilation set comes in at No. 9 with 30,000. Glee’s The Power of Madonna TV soundtrack fell to No. 10 with 29,000 units sold.
Are you glad B.o.B hit No. 1? Did you think Melissa Etheridge would debut higher? Talk to us in the comments after the jump.
