Fall Out Boy‘s new album “American Beauty/American Psycho” has rocketed to the number one spot on Billboard 200 chart. Rather than ‘move’, the new album was debuted at number one spot on the music chart. This was kind of an expected move, since ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’ was a highly anticipated album of 2015. The real challenge would be staying at number one spot when competition from Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ and Meghan Trainor’s ‘Title’ albums are so high.
Fall Out Boy’s New Album ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’ Knocks Off ‘Title’
Meghan Trainor had a blast, releasing her debut studio album ‘Title’. This album too debuted at number one position on Billboard 200 and could only last there for the debut week. The new album ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’ was released on January 20, 2015 and it just knocked off ‘Title’ from it’s spot.
Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ Lost, But is Still Victorious!
However, ‘Title’ dropped two spots and is currently ranked at number three on the chart. This means Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ album is still at number two, after 13 weeks on chart. It speaks in volumes to the success ‘1989’ has had and is still having.
Singles off of ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’
“Uptown Funk” still owns the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and we can see “Centuries” single off of ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’ making a quick rise through the list. It is still ranked at 10, jumping up 2 spots from last week. The album release will help it move straight up, but how far is something we cannot predict, because Billboard Hot 100 charts is totally owned by some of the best music there is.
Taylor Swift is never out of the charts. “Shake It Off” has actually gained from two weeks before, even after 23 weeks on chart. It is hard to believe that “Centuries” could beat the top 3 spots, but if it does, that would be a massive achievement.
It has been only 10 days since Fall Out Boy’s new album released and it is too early to predict it’s commercial success. We will have official stats on album sales and online streams in the next few days, and then we can do a good estimate on the album.
