Jack Johnson has earned his fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 album chart with his latest release, From Here To Now To You. The album topped several other new releases that reached the Top 10. However, its reign will likely be short-lived, since the second part of Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience is out next week.
Billboard reports that From Here sold 117,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan data. His previous two albums - Sleep Through The Static (2008) and To The Sea (2010) - topped the chart, as did his 2006 Curious George soundtrack.
The only downside for his is that it was his lowest sales debut since his first album, Brushfire Fairytales. That album sold under 1,000 copies when it was first released in 2001.
Country singer Jason Moore’s Off The Beaten Path took the No. 2 slot with 97,000 copies. Fellow country star Chris Young’s A.M. debuted with 54,000 copies, coming in at a distant third place.
The compilation MMG: Self Made 3 hit No. 4 with 50,000 copies. The set gathers tracks from Maybach Music Group artists like Rick Ross and Meek Mill. Avicil’s True rounded out the Top 5 with 50,000 copies.
Other albums in the Top 10 include Luke Bryan’s Crash My Party, which moved up to No. 6 with 47,000 copies; 2 Chainz's B.O.A.T.S. II #METIME (35,000); and last week’s No. 1, Keith Urban’s Fuse (31,000). The No. 9 slot was held by The Weeknd's Kiss Land (26,000) and Billy Currington’s We Are Tonight is at No. 10 with 26,000.
Lorde’s "Royals" jumped to No. 1 on the Digital Songs Chart with 307,000 downloads.
