AceShowbiz - The soundtrack to "Descendants" has come out at No. 1 of Billboard 200. The album, which accompanies the Disney Channels TV movie premiering on July 31, becomes the fourth chart-topping soundtrack in 2015 as it opens with 42,000 equivalent album.
With only 30,000 in pure album sales, the compilation logs the lowest sales week for a No. 1 record since Nielsen Music began supporting Billboard 200 in 1991. The previous low came in January 2011 when %cAmos Lee%'s "Mission Bell" debuted atop the list with just over 40,000 copies.
Next on Billboard 200, %cFuture%'s "DS2" stays at No. 2 with another 37,000. %cTaylor Swift%'s "1989" jumps one rung to No. 3 with another 35,000 equivalent units. Her BFF %cEd Sheeran%'s "X" rises from last week's No. 6 to this week's No. 4 with 30,000. %cSam Hunt%'s "Montevallo" closes out the top 5 with 27,000.
At No. 6 is last week's first placer, %cJill Scott%'s "Woman", which sells additional 27,000 units in its second week. %cLil Dicky% becomes the second and the last newcomer in the top 10 as his "Professional Rapper", which was funded via a Kickstarter campaign, arrives at No. 7 with 26,000.
%cTwenty One Pilots%' "Blurryface" soars from No. 20 to No. 8 with 25,000 following the set's vinyl release on July 31. Behind the former No. 1 is the re-issue of %cLed Zeppelin%'s "In Through the Out Door" which bows at No. 9 with 24,000. The record's original version spent seven weeks at No. 1 upon its release back in 1979.
Claiming the last spot in the top 10 is %cDrake%'s "If You're Reading This It's Too Late", which rises three rungs with 23,000 amid the rapper's highly-publicized feud with %cMeek Mill%.
