Justin Bieber, MGMT Lead U.S. Album Chart

LOS ANGELES (Billboard) – Canadian teen idol Justin Bieber led the U.S. album chart for a third non-consecutive week Wednesday, while rock duo MGMT’s second album debuted at No. a couple of.
Bieber’s “My World 2.0″ sold 92,000 copies during the week ended April 18, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It’s the smallest sum for a No. 1 album because last May perhaps, when Chrisette Michele’s “Epiphany” launched at No. 1 with 83,000. The total for “My World 2.0″ stands at 768,000.
MGMT’s “Congratulations” followed with 66,000, the best sales week ever for the group. Its first set, 2007′s “Oracular Spectacular,” never sold far more than 17,000 in a week and topped out at No. 38 around the chart. On the current tally, it jumped 52 places to No. 72, with sales to date of 606,000 units.
“Oracular” has been a consistent seller since January of 2008 — selling at least 2,000 copies per week. The album’s long shelf life has been no doubt helped by its hit singles “Kids” and “Time to Pretend.” They reached Nos. 9 and 23 around the Alternative Songs radio airplay chart, respectively, and were heard in TV shows like “Gossip Girl” and films for instance “21″ and “Whip It.” Meanwhile, “Congratulations’” 1st single, “Flash Delirium,” has yet to chart on any of Billboard’s radio airplay tallies.
Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” profited in part from the trio’s five wins on Sunday’s Academy of Country Music Awards demonstrate as the set rose one to No. 3 with 65,000. Kmart also gave the set an assist as it was sale-priced at the retailer for $9.99 last week. As the ACM Awards aired correct at the end with the tracking week, expect a additional robust boost next week for Lady A’s set and also the rest from the acts featured for the show.
The second-highest debut came from Coheed and Cambria’s “Year in the Black Rainbow,” which started at a career high of No. 5 with 51,000 copies. The rock act’s last album, 2007′s “No World For Tomorrow,” bowed at No. 6 but with 62,000 units.
