Quick Takes

Buble fends off vampires, Carey

October 22, 2009|Todd Martens

Vocalist Michael Buble maintained his grip on the top of the pop charts, withstanding a challenge from the international phenom that is the teen soap opera "The Twilight Saga."

Buble's Oprah Winfrey-endorsed "Crazy Love" sold 203,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan figures released Wednesday, to once again lead the pop chart. In about 10 days of release, the album has racked up 350,000 sales.

How impressive is that? The hype for Mariah Carey's "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" began way back in June, and the superstar release has sold 250,000 copies in three full weeks of release.

Buble also fended off the much-hyped soundtrack to "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," which landed at No. 2 on the strength of 115,000 copies sold. The Flaming Lips' "Embryonic" entered the charts at No. 8 with just under 32,000 copies sold.
