The Fray earns its first No. 1 on The Billboard 200 with its sophomore self-titled Epic album, which sold 179,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The Denver-based rock act's previous album, "How To Save a Life," has sold 2.37 million to date.
After a record-breaking 97-1 leap on the Billboard Hot 100 last week, Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You" stays put on the top spot this week. The song also becomes her fastest top 20 hit on the Hot 100 Airplay tally, where it moves up 38-19.
As expected, Bruce Springsteen's new album, "Working on a Dream," dethrones Taylor Swift's "Fearless" after an eight-week reign. The Columbia set sold 224,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, giving the Boss' his ninth No. 1 album on the chart.
