There must be something about B.o.B...

B.O.B Places 2 Singles on iTunes Chart, Including #1

Congratulations are in order to MGMT as the duo’s sophomore release topped the iTunes Music Store albums chart in its first week on sale. I’ve heard a lot of buzz about this outfit and this release but as yet haven’t listened to them. The hype has obviously translated into sales. I hope the hype is the result of musical goodness.

Another item on the albums’ chart worth noting is Leave Your Sleep from Natalie Merchant. Blogcritics writer extraordinaire Mark Saleski loved this album and if he were the type to make lists at year’s end, I imagine this would be featured prominently. Elsewhere on the albums chart, Lady Antebellum holds strong after racking up several wins at the Country Music Awards.

On the singles chart, we have a new #1. I only know two things about B.oB.: He’s got the #1 single on the iTunes Music Chart, ousting Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” and BC’s Clayton Perry interviewed him late last year. I guess we can add a third item to that list, which is that B.o.B. has another single on the chart which features Paramore frontwoman Haley Williams. Here are your lists:
