Thom Yorke cracks US chart.
Now it's time for us to have a look at the US album chart. There on the very top position on the chart is the 22nd installment of "Now That's What I Call Music," tentatively titled "Now That's What I Call Music! Vol. 22", which sold about 398,000 copies. That amount, in fact, marks the biggest first-week sales since the Dixie Chicks' "Taking the Long Way", which has been sold more than 500,000 back in May.
What's more it's also more than four times as many copies as Johnny Cash's "American V: A Hundred Highways". Then comes at 2nd position on the chart is Thom Yorke's "The Eraser", moving 90,000 copies. Elsewhere on the top 200, Pimp C debuts at No. 3 with his "Pimpalation" sold 87,000 copies, ahead of Nelly Furtado's "Loose" at No. 4.
Gnarls Barkley's "St. Elsewhere" is at No. 5, followed behind by last week's chart-topper Cash's "American V: A Hundred Highways" at 6th and "High school Musical Soundtrack" at 7th. The other chart holdovers are "Me and My Gang" by Rascal Flatts which is at No. 8 and Muse's "Black Holes & Revelations" at 9th. Round out the top tier at No. 10 is Rihanna's "A Girl Like Me".
