Britney Spears "Blackout" will be #1 on Billboard this week, but only by default. Brit's album sold a reported 325,000 copies in the US. The Eagles would've been #1 if Wal-Mart reported their sales. The Eagles new album is only sold on their website and at Wal-Mart. GROSS!
A chart expert said, "If the Eagles were SoundScanning this week, even though it's only available at one retailer, Britney wouldn't be No. 1."
The Eagles beat Britney in the UK. This is the first time they have had a #1 album in the UK. "Long Road Out Of Eden" is the band's new studio album since 1979.
Brit's last studio album "In The Zone" opened with over 600,000 copies.
Damn Wal-Mart! I'm actually surprised she sold that many copies. Everyone I talked to was like "I'm not buying that crap! She doesn't need anymore Frappuccino money!" They are so right.
