Both of Prince’s New Albums Debut In Billboard’s Top 10
According to the official report of the Billboard 200, both of Prince's new albums, 'Art Official Age' and 'Plectrumelectrum,' debuted in the Top 10 -- 'Art Official Age at No. 5 and 'Plectrumelectrum' (with collaborators 3rdEyeGirl) at No. 8. Prince is the first artist to accomplish this feat in over 10 years.
Blake Shelton's 'Bringing Back the Sunshine' snagged the No. 1 spot with Lady Antebellum at No. 2 spot and Barbara Streisand rounding out the Top 3. Falling behind Prince are Chris Brown, One Direction and Carrie Underwood.
The last person to accomplish Prince's feat was Nelly back in 2004, so this is a pretty big reason for the rock star to celebrate. Prince does not currently have any tour dates scheduled, though his camp is hinting that dates will be announced soon.
Even more cause for celebration is the fact that 'Art Official Age' debuted on the U.S. R&B / Hip Hop Albums chart at No. 1 and 'Plectrumelectrum' also debuted at the top spot on the U.S. Rock Albums chart.
