Amos Lee takes the honor of Billboard’s #1 selling album of the week with a 40k shift of his latest album, Mission Bell.  This marks Lee’s first #1 album and also breaks another sad record: official lowest album sales to top the charts since Billboard began the rankings in 1991.  Rock band Cake previously held that title just a few weeks ago when their latest sold 44k.  Guess there isn’t any new music we care to buy at the moment?…



I’m not sure if it’s her white-trashy style, her love of drinking, her crass interviews, or the fact that she doesn’t take herself too seriously – but I am in love with it all.  This isn’t even the style of music I prefer – it’s overproduced, not indy, not the best songwriting…and understand I might be losing some edgy points, but truth is, I can’t get away from it and I’ve let her suck me into it.  I’m a fan.  She’s polarizing for some people, but not so polarizing to dominate the #1 spot on Billboard for 9 straight weeks – a record that hasn’t been broken by any other female with a debut single for over 30+ years.  Unsure if she’ll be a one-hit-wonder as some critics are speculating, but if it’s based on her follow up single, “Blah Blah Blah” featuring 3Oh!3, then it’s safe to say she’s well on her way to prove them wrong.
