Private Charts: Breaking Down the Billboard 200


Daughtry Shins Thicke

Every week, through Thicke and thin, the VH1 Blog will take a skewed look at the latest Billboard album charts. From Idol oversights to an indie surprise, here’s how last week’s sales shook out. (Click here for the complete Billboard 200 charts.)

- Way to Call It, Simon, Paula and Randy: Eleven weeks after release, Taylor Hicks‘ self-titled debut is the 138th best selling CD in the country. And after 14 weeks, Daughtry’s self-titled jobbie is snuggled at No. 2. Good call, guys.

- Number of the Beast, Girl: Robin Thicke’s chart position over the last three weeks? 6, 6 and 6 (which might explain his album’s sales peaking some 16 months after its release).

- Indie Shock, Pt. 3: After surprising debuts by the Shins and Bloc Party, far-out instrumentalists (no, really) Explosions in the Sky debuted at No. 76, one spot below Diddy and one spot above Jill Scott. Let’s hear it for lyric-less psychedelia!

- Chart Neighbors You’d Least Expect to See Partying Together: Diddy (75), Explosions in the Sky (76) and Jill Scott (77)

- Chart Neighbors You’d Most Like to See Partying Together: Frank Sinatra (148), T.I. (149) and Tool (150)

- Release Most Likely to Get Pushed Out the Back Door of the Charts:
Lil Boosie’s "Bad Azz" (199)
