Queens of the Stone Age’s sixth studio album…,Like Clockwork, enters The Billboard 200 at #1. But it won’t be there for long. Black Sabbath is expected to debut at #1 next week with 13. That would be the first #1 for Black Sabbath (and/or for its star member, Ozzy Osbourne) in a chart career that dates back to 1970.
This is Queens of the Stone Age’s fourth studio album in a row to reach the top 20, but its first to rise above #5. The band first charted in 2002. The new album features guest turns by Elton John, Trent Reznor, Dave Grohl and Jake Shear of Scissor Sisters. The album sold 40K digital copies (out of 91K total), which enables it to also debut at #1 on Top Digital Albums.Read More »from Week Ending June 9, 2013. Albums: Rock On A Roll
