Springsteen reclaims top spot on US charts

It's a slow week for album sales all around

Bruce Springsteen reclaimed the Number One spot on the US Billboard charts this week, bumping last week’s chart topper Kid Rock to the Number Two position.

Springsteen sold approximately 77,000 copies of ‘Magic’ this week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, outselling Kid Rock‘s ‘Rock N Roll Jesus’ by only a few hundred copies.

This is a fairly meager sales showing for a Number One album. ‘Magic’ debuted at the top of the chart by selling 335,000 copies two weeks ago, and US music sales are down approximately 20 per cent from the same week last year.

Rounding out the Top Five are Rascal Flatts‘Still Feels Good’, Josh Groban‘s holiday album ‘Noel’, and Jimmy Eat World‘s ‘Chase This Light’ which has sold 62,000 copies its first week out.
