New Moon OST Outsells Michael Buble, Tim McGraw and Rammstein



When we commented a week ago on the New Moon OST falling short to Michael Buble in the Billboard charts, commenter/reader Chris Molanphy pointed out a detail we had been quick to overlook "You’re leaving out an important detail, " he said. "The ‘New Moon’ OST did that number in *three days* of sales, because they had to move the release up from Tuesday to the previous Friday. So that 115K is up against Bublé’s full seven days of sales." And while we were incredulous upon reading that three days could create the spread, Mr. Molanphy was right on the money. Billboard is reporting that after a second—and this time full—week of sales, the soundtrack sits pretty atop the charts, having sold 153,000 copies since we last spoke. That's a 33% uptick in sales from week one and 16,000 more units moved than that of Tim McGraw's tenth studio album Southern Voice, which also hit shelves last week. Never doubt a Twi-hard.
