Sugarland Tops Billboard Album Chart

Sugarland (lean on me)

Sugarland’s monster debut for new album The Incredible Machine—with more than 203,000 in sales in its first week—launched it into the top spot on the all-genre Billboard 200 album sales chart.

Sugarland barely beat out Nashville rock band Kings of Leon for the top spot. The rest of the top five: Elton John/Leon Russell, Rod Stewart and Lil’ Wayne. It’s the third time Sugarland has had a No. 1 album on the all-genre chart.

But the big buzz of album sales charts is Taylor Swift’s new collection, Speak Now—out Monday—which some prognosticators are saying could sell more than one million copies in the first week.

That would be the first time we’ve had a million-selling debut week since Lil’ Wayne’s Tha Carter III came out in June 2008, Billboard reports.
