Get a load of Adam Lambert at the top of the charts. The powerhouse crooner’s new album, Trespassing, debuts this week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
The set, Lambert’s sophomore release, sold 77,000 copies in its first week of availability. The sum is down considerably from the debut sales total of his debut album, For Your Entertainment. FYE stormed the Billboard 200 in 2009 with 198,000 copies in its first week out. Keep in mind, though, Lambert had just come off of his American Idol run that same year, and had a firestorm of press following his infamous American Music Awards performance, plus FYE was released during the prime holiday shopping season.
While FYE topped Trespassing in sales, it didn’t with its chart position; the album debuted at No. 3 behind Susan Boyle‘s I Dreamed A Dream and Andrea Bocelli‘s My Christmas.
Adam has already hit Twitter to celebrate the good news with his fans. “WOW!
#Trespassing made its debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 this week!” he tweeted. “Thank you to the Glamily for helping me make HISTORY!”
Adam is currently promoting Trespassing’s second single, the Bruno Mars-penned “Never Close Our Eyes.”
