Jay-Z And Beatles Top Charts, Coldplay Case Closed, O.A.R. Plans Live Album
In this Tuesday edition of the Daily Noise, brought to you by Fuse and Billboard, Jay-Z and the Beatles reign supreme on the charts, Coldplay's copyright case is closed, and O.A.R. wants fans to savor the memories.
Hova and the Fab Four blew the competition out of the water. "Blueprint 3" sold just under 500,000 copies in its first week, grabbing the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The Beatles reissues sold more than 600,000 copies combined, with "Abbey Road" being the most popular, selling just under 90,000 copies.
The copyright infringement court case concerning Coldplay and Joe Satriani is over, with sources suggesting that a settlement was reached between the two parties. The case stemmed over Satriani's claim that the British band's song "Viva La Vida" sounds like his song "If I Could Fly."
O.A.R. is planning to release a live album in the near future, with the next leg of their "This Town" tour kicking off October 14 in Charlotte.
