Lady Antebellum collects its third No. 1 on the Billboard 200 while 'The Great Gatsby' bows at No. 2
Country trio Lady Antebellum earns its third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 as "Golden" debuts with 167,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The set sold slightly better than initially forecast: The day after it was released on May 7, industry sources suggested that "Golden" would move around 150,000 copies. But the album performed well during the weekend, thus granting it a more robust debut. Credit Mother's Day gift shopping for some of that sales bump, as the holiday fell on the final day of the tracking week (Sunday, May 12).
