Here comes another surprise from music industry. Bob Dylan is back at the top of the album charts with his new set "Modern Times" sold 192,000 copies in the week ended Sunday September 3rd. Hence, with such attainment during the album's first week of release, Dylan has successfully made his first time record in 30 years.
Greater than that, "Modern Times" also topped the charts in Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Ireland, Norway and Switzerland, while opening at number two in Germany, Austria and Sweden. What's more, in the UK alone, the music project gave Dylan a personal single-week sales record with 55,000 copies at number three.
Back to the US album charts, last week chart-topper Danity Kane's self titled album slips one to 2nd position, ahead of new release "Best Thang Smokin'" by Young Dro at No. 3. The 4th spot, in the meantime, is dominated by Christina Aguilera's "Back to Basics," followed behind by another new release, Jessica Simpson's "A Public Affair" at the 5th spot.
Rounding out the Top 10 is "Cheetah Girls 2" soundtrack, OutKast's "Idlewild", Method Man's "4:21... The Day After", The Roots' "Game Theory", and Nickelback's "All the Right Reasons", all of which top the album charts at No. 6 to 10 in a row.
