Plus: Miley Cyrus' "Plastic Hearts" hits a new high thanks to its vinyl LP release.
The Wallflowers’ first studio album in more than eight years, Exit Wounds, debuts at No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart (dated July 24). The Jakob Dylan-led act’s latest release sold 6,000 copies in the U.S. in the week ending July 15, according to MRC Data.
Meanwhile, Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour clocks a third nonconsecutive week at No. 1 (10,000 sold; up 7%) while Miley Cyrus’ Plastic Hearts hits a new peak (re-entering at No. 5), thanks to its vinyl LP release.
Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart ranks the top-selling albums of the week based only on traditional album sales. The chart’s history dates back to May 25, 1991, the first week Billboard began tabulating charts with electronically monitored piece count information from SoundScan, now MRC Data. Pure album sales were the measurement solely utilized by the Billboard 200 albums chart through the list dated Dec. 6, 2014, after which that chart switched to a methodology that blends album sales with track equivalent album units and streaming equivalent album units.
