Michael Buble Knocks Paramore Clear Out of the Top 10
This week in completely joyless chart news: International cipher Michael Buble sells a whopping 132,000 copies in three days to knock Barbra Streisand out of the number one spot; Kiss, whose Walmart-exclusive Sonic Bomb sold 108K, take #2; and Toby Keith's American Ride (not to be confused with Brad Paisley's American Saturday Night, out for a minute now but reviewed brilliantly this week by Chuck Eddy here), sprang for 90K, good enough for #3. Paramore, last week's heroes, fell to #11; Jay-Z, who has been waiting a long time for this, hung on at #5, sold 65K, and finally, finally, went platinum. [Billboard]
