So the weeks sales totals & chart positions are official. It is another week in the Top 20 for Some Hearts as the album lands at #14. Carrie still has the #1 album on the Country Charts, this makes the 22nd week that she has had this spot, and if I am not mistaken also marks the 43rd week in the Top 20 of the Billboard Top 200. That is pretty good stuff for the 63rd week of release.
14 Carrie Underwood-Some Hearts 32,414 total: 4,789,464
And there is this interesting tidbit from MTV on the battle for sales supremacy between Carrie & Nickleback.
"While it's the battle for #1 that attracts the most attention each week, there's another race unfolding on Billboard's weekly chart: Nickelback vs. Carrie Underwood, in a fight for the "Best-Selling Album in the Top 200" title. The two heavyweights have been playing a heated game of tug-of-war these last few months, with the scales tipping in one or the other's favor from week to week. This time out, Nickelback are the victors, having sold close to 4,792,291 million copies of their latest All the Right Reasons, with Underwood's Some Hearts moving 4,789,464 units — a mere 3,000 and change making the difference. We'll have to wait a week to see who comes out on top in the next round." MTV.com
On the Wasted front, as I suspected the song has hit the Top 20. As of this morning it is at #20 with the biggest airplay gain of any song on the charts. Looks like the sky is once again the limit & the sky is going to be reached very early, considering the official adds date was supposed to be Feb. 5.
