Rock band Muse earns its highest-charting album as "The 2nd Law" debuts at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The set sold 101,000 in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's the third top 10 for the act, which previously claimed a No. 9 set with "Black Holes and Revelations" and a No. 3 rank with "The Resistance."
Even with Mumford & Sons holding onto the No. 1, there won't be a lack of action happening in the top 10 on next week's Billboard 200 chart. Upwards of six new albums may start in the region, led by Muse's "The 2nd Law," which seems to be a lock for a No. 2 bow. And Miguel's second release, "Kaleidoscope Dream," is poised for a No. 3 debut.
