Usher’s ‘Looking 4 Myself’ Debuts At No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart
Usher is back on top! The R&B crooner nabbed his fourth No. 1 album with ‘Looking 4 Myself.’ The collection premiered atop of the latest Billboard 200 chart with 128,000 copies moved in its first week of release. The album also is No. 1 in 9 other countries including the UK, Germany, Japan and the Netherlands.
Usher’s first-week sales totals didn’t out-top his 2010 release, ‘Raymond vs. Raymond,’ which debuted at No. 1 with 329,000 copies sold. The singer’s low album sales could be attributed to the collection leaking onto the Internet a week before its initial release.
Usher will mostly have to give up his perch next week when his protegé Justin Bieber storms the chart with his second album ‘Believe.’ There’s no denying that the pop superstar’s LP will make a bee-line to the top of the charts.
Besides his No. 1 album, Usher still continues to reign on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with ‘Climax.’ His falsetto-driven ballad has spent nine consecutive weeks at No. 1, so far. On the Pop Songs chart, Ush’s dance single ‘Scream’ climbed from No. 11 to No. 10 this week.
