Another week, another new No. 1 album in the country as Miley Cyrus makes a fashionable debut on the Billboard 200 chart.
Miley's Bangerz sold roughly 274,000 copies to claim the top spot. She beat out last week's No. 1, Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, which sold 72,000 and placed No. 5 on the chart. At 20-years-old, Miley can now call Bangerz her third album to hit the top of the charts in its first week. Her best first week sales perfomance still stands at 371,000 with her 2008 album Breakout.
Pusha T also made his debut this week with My Name Is My Name, which sold a little over 74,000 copies to land at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. The album was backed by the singles "Pain" featuring Future and "Sweet Serenade" featuring Chris Brown. Considering this is Pusha's debut solo album, the 36-year-old veteran rapper from Virginia had a commendable performance on the charts. His first week tally here also more than doubles what he and his brother No Malice as Clipse did in 2009 with Til the Casket Drops.
Danny Brown debuts at No. 17 with his impressive album Old. The Fool's Gold release from the Detroit MC moved 15,000 copies in its first week to break into the top 20 of the Billboard 200. While the sales aren't too high for a debut, Brown's Old definitely has crossover appeal in rap and EDM markets.
