With Turkey Day upon us, Alicia Keys provides the trimmings.
Coming off a scintillating American Music Awards perf, the J Records superstar provides plenty of reason for Clive Davis and company to give thanks with the year’s second-biggest debut week, with As I Am bowing at #1, scoring an impressive 723k in sales.
Only Kanye West’s Graduation has done better in 2007, with 930k in first-week sales back in September. Two weeks ago, the Eagles bowed on the HITS Top 50 with 707k.
All top 10 albums this week sold more than 100k, and that’s the first time that’s occurred since, well, last year at this time.
