Amos Lee debuts at #1
“Mission Bell,” the fourth album from Amos Lee, debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart this week, earning the Philadelphia-born singer-songwriter the highest chart position and best sales week of his career.
First-week total sales of 40,478 represent a personal high for Lee, whose previous high through three albums was 16k.
The CD also debuted at 1 on the Digital Albums and 2 on the Internet chart after topping both the iTunes and Amazon Top-Selling Albums charts at various points during the past week.
Good news for Lee, but EXTREMELY POOR sales for a chart topper, worst ever I believe in SoundScan era.
