Chart Roundup: Sean "YouTube" Combs Takes Number One

By |

All that self-promoting video diary stuff didn't vault Diddy's new album into the wilds of super-awesome sales. Press Play only sold 170,483 copies in its first week on the charts, landing it a Number One debut but impressing few along the way. Shocking conclusion: Allowing your fans to watch you pee does not turn your record into a hit.

Meanwhile, Sting's collection of traditional lute music, Songs From the Labyrinth, jumped an impressive 12 spots on the charts this week, landing at Number 25, and mall-friendly pop tart Jo Jo (who has a somewhat sheepish but devoted following here at RS, we discovered in today's morning meeting) debuted at Number Three this week with her record High Road.
