Keith Urban Explodes to No. 1 in All Genres With His “Fuse” Album

And Sheryl Crow sells 36,000 copies of her debut country album in its first week of sales.

It was a photo finish, but Keith Urban had the No. 1-selling album of all genres in all the land last week, selling 97,000 copies of Fuse in its debut week, Billboard reports.

Keith squeaked by a new album by the Weeknd, a.k.a. R&B artist Abel Tesfaye, whose album Kiss Land sold about 95,000 copies, according to numbers from Nielsen SoundScan.

This is Keith’s second No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 album sales chart, the first being 2009’s Defying Gravity.

Sheryl Crow also made her debut on the country album chart with Feels Like Home, which sold 36,000 copies, good enough for third place (behind Luke Bryan’s Crash My Party) on the country chart and No. 7 on the Billboard 200.
