Iconic rocker Alice Cooper returns to the Billboard 200 this week with his highest-charting album since 1989 as Welcome 2 My Nightmare bows at No. 22 with 18,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
He last rose higher on the list with the Epic album Trash, which climbed to No. 20 courtesy of heavy MTV and radio support of the surprise hit single "Poison." The tune reached No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and marked his highest-charting Hot 100 effort since "You and Me" went to No. 9 in 1977.
Welcome 2 is the sequel to his 1975 concept set Welcome to My Nightmare, which peaked at No. 5 and spent 37 weeks on the tally. The new album boasts a guest turn from a recent Hot 100 mainstay: Ke$ha, who duets with Cooper on the track "What Baby Wants."
