AFTW - DMB's 6th Straight #1

according to Hitsdailydouble.com:

They’re jamming at the top of the chart. RCA’s Dave Matthews Band hits #1 this week on the HITS sales tally as Away from the World bows with 271k, third highest total of the year after Justin Bieber (373k) and Madonna (358k).

http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/sales/salescht.cgi

Significantly down from Big Whiskey selling 400,000+ first week, but obviously, the entire industry is way down since then with no album this year reaching 400K.

Note: Hitsdailydouble's numbers do not exactly match the "official" billboard soundscan numbers that will be released tomorrow, but it is usually pretty close.

I think the 6th straight #1 is a record, right? Thought I read that in another thread.

record broken!!! Puts some good vibes back into the general public that DMB can still get real music to sell.

But still- look at that gap! DMB sold more than 100,000 MORE than Bob Dylan. And we said that they have the third highest album sales? Thats still pretty damn awesome for a band who isn't 18 and girly.

Oh, I'm glad the band (and real music in general) can do this. I'm sad that the really high numbers are put up there thanks to a bunch of screaming twelve year olds (Bieber) and...?????(I have no idea what Madonna's appeal is).

It'd be nice if they held on to #1 next week.

It's a record for consecutive studio albums debuting at #1 not including compilations. Eminem will tie this record soon when he releases his next album.

Was going to ask about Eminem, because I've read several places where he also has 6 straight, but didn't catch that one of them is a compilation

Yea I would love this too, but it's looking tough. The Killers and P!ink (who is terrible) have albums out this week and then Mumford & Sons have their new album next week. I really hope DMB could outsell at least P!ink just because she is so bad.

the people that didn't buy it last week are buying it this week. It's part of a plan to keep DMB at the #1 spot

Re: AFTW - DMB's 6th Straight #1

it amazes me that albums sell so low in numbers, in the late 90's CDs were selling at close to a million for opening week... but its 2012, piracy and all.

That is incorrect. Eminem has had 5 consecutive studio albums not including soundtracks or compilations debut at #1, The Real Slim Shady debuted at #2 otherwise he'd currently be at 6. Madonna also has 5, as does Elton John.

It also has to do with being able to download each song not the whole album... IE people would rather get mercy and then down load the new kesha song next week for 2 dollars then getting a full album

This is truly an impressive and absurd record. Regardless of your sentiments towards this band, their long-term staying power and consistent ability to appeal to a shit load of people is unbelievable

- DMB is the 2nd American Band to have 6 #1 albums, non-consecutively (Eagles)

As far as I am aware, no solo artist record was broken.
