Danity Kane Outlast OutKast, Christina
‘Making the Band’ winners Danity Kane are living up to the hype, selling 234,000 copies of their self-titled debut to top the current charts, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The debut marks the seventh No. 1 for guru Diddy’s Bad Boy Records.
OutKast’s soundtrack to their film ‘Idlewild’ landed with a bit of a thud in the second spot, selling an underwhelming 196,000 copies in the record’s first week of release. The movie has underperformed as well, debuting at No. 9 at the box office.
Last week’s chart-topping debut, Christina Aguilera’s ‘Back to Basics,’ drops to No. 3 with 135,000 copies sold. Rounding out the Top 5: Mexico’s Mana, who sold 87,000 copies of their new album, ‘Amar,’ notching the biggest debut for a Spanish-language group in America, followed by the soundtrack to Disney’s ‘The Cheetah Girls 2.’ Holding steady with 81,000 copies sold, ‘Cheetah Girls’ was just strong enough to keep Paris Hilton’s debut from elbowing into the Top 5.
