Re: Christina Aguilera - Lotus outsells Lana and Green Day Hooray!

Not really controversial, it's just embarrassing.

Re: Christina Aguilera - Lotus outsells Lana and Green Day Hooray!

Paradise sold 81k, Lotus did 73k. So Xtina didn't exactly outsell Lana.

One Direction Tops Billboard 200 Chart, 'Twilight' Debuts at No. 3
by Keith Caulfield, L.A. | November 21, 2012

As earlier reported, One Direction crashes in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with its second album, "Take Me Home." The SYCO/Columbia set sold 540,000 copies in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan, marking the third largest sales frame of the year. Only the debuts of Taylor Swift's "Red" (1.2 million in its bow) and Mumford & Sons' "Babel" (a 600,000-unit start) were larger.

Taylor Swift's "Red" relinquishes the No. 1 slot after a three-week run, falling to No. 2 with 145,000 (down 26%). After four weeks on sale, the set has sold 1.89 million copies.

At No. 3 this week is the second of seven debuts in the top 10, as the soundtrack to "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" bows with 93,000. All five of the soundtracks to the film series have debuted in the top four slots on the chart. The first "Twilight" launched with 165,000 at No. 1 while "New Moon" debuted at No. 2 with 115,000 (before hitting No. 1 the next week with 153,000). "Eclipse" debuted and peaked at No. 2 with 146,000 while "Breaking Dawn Part 1" also peaked where it started: No. 4 with 105,000.

The Weeknd's major label debut album, "Trilogy," arrives in the No. 4 slot this week, shifting 86,000. The Toronto singer's set comprises his three earlier mixtapes ("House of Balloons," "Thursday" and "Echoes of Silence") in addition to a few extra bonus tracks.

The reformed Soundgarden returns to the chart as its first studio set in 16 years, "King Animal," launches at No. 5 with 83,000 and also debuts at No. 1 on Hard Rock Albums. The quartet's last effort, 1996's "Down on the Upside," spent 43 weeks on the list, debuting and peaking at No. 2.

Rod Stewart's holiday set "Merry Christmas, Baby," continues to hold tight in a very busy top 10, as it slips 3-6 -- but with a gain in sales. The set sold 80,000 last week, up 8%. Watch for the album to grow over the next few weeks as Christmas nears.

Pop diva Christina Aguilera blooms at No. 7 with her fifth studio album "Lotus," starting with 73,000. She last visited the top 10 with 2010's "Bionic" -- her previous studio set -- which bowed at No. 3 with 111,000. Later that year, she notched at No. 18 hit with the soundtrack to her film "Burlesque."

The "Now 44" compilation slides 2-8 this week with 70,000 (down 29%) in its second frame, bringing its two-week sales sum to 169,000.

Closing out the top 10 are two more debuts: Green Day's "Dos!" at No. 9 (69,000) and Lana Del Rey's "Paradise" at No. 10 (67,000). The former is the second in a three album series from the band. It follows "Uno!," which debuted and peaked at No. 2 with 139,000 on the Oct. 13 chart. Next up is "Tre!," due out Dec. 11.

As for Del Rey, "Paradise" is her second top 10 this year, after bowing at No. 2 with her debut major label full-length set "Born To Die." The new "Paradise" is an eight song album, which was also offered as part of a deluxe reissue of "Born to Die." In turn, the original "Born to Die" album (now powered by sales from both the original album and the new deluxe version) jumps 79-37 on the chart with 16,000 (up 190%).

Over on the Digital Songs chart, Rihanna's "Diamonds" rises 3-1 for its first week at the top, selling 171,000 (up 19%). PSY's "Gangnam Style" slips 1-2 with 161,000 (down 14%) and Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven" dips 2-3 with 148,000 (down 5%).

Ke$ha's "Die Young" is steady at No. 4 (133,000; down 4%), the Lumineers' "Ho Hey" rises 8-5 (121,000; up 20%) and Adele's "Skyfall" sizzles 10-6 (120,000; up 32%).

Maroon 5's "One More Night" falls 5-7 (119,000; down 5%), Flo Rida's "I Cry" descends 7-8 (105,000; down 2%) and Phillip Phillips' "Home" holds at No. 9 (103,000; up 6%).

Rounding out the top 10 is a new entry at No. 10 from One Direction, who sees its "Little Things" start with 91,000. It's the second single from the group's No. 1 album "Take Me Home."

Overall album sales in this past chart week (ending Nov. 18) totaled 6.76 million units, up 24% compared with the sum last week (5.45 million) and down 4% compared with the comparable sales week of 2011 (7.04 million). Year-to-date album sales stand at 258.05 million, down 4% compared with the same total at this point last year (268.94 million).

Digital track sales this past week totaled 22.03 million downloads, up 3% compared with last week (21.32 million) and up 1% stacked next to the comparable week of 2011 (21.73 million). Year-to-date track sales are at 1.162 billion, up 6% compared with the same total at this point last year (1.100 billion).

Next week's Billboard 200 competes with the same week in 2011 when: Michael Buble's "Christmas" rose to No. 1, selling 227,000 (up 37%), blocking Nickelback's "Here and Now" from the top. It started in the runner-up slot with just under 227,000.

Added on to the sales of Paradise, that gives Lana a combined total of 85k this week which is more than Lotus.
Sorry Xtine

You should be sorry that "Lana" has to release an EP in the same year she already dropped her full-length and is still irrelevant on the charts. Even Rihanna doesn't release two ablums in one year.

Lana didn't release two albums this year, Paradise is an EP.
And 3 million sales of Born To Die sold so far (without including sales of Paradise) doesn't indicate "irrelevant on the charts" to me. In fact, she is easily one of the year's biggest sellers. I think you are letting your blind hatred get in the way of facts here.

Re: Christina Aguilera - Lotus outsells Lana and Green Day Hooray!

To call a crossover alternative artist that went from making her own YouTube videos and working on tiny indie labels to selling millions of copies of her first studio album worldwide (and outselling pop stars) irrelevant is just

Sorry. I forgot how I hear her on the radio all the time. And by all the time I mean never.
