While we previously shared with you the projected sales for Bruno Mars, Game and Big Boi, today the Billboard 200 has been released with the first week statistics. As projected, Bruno Mars’s Unorthodox Jukebox out sold the other two releasing albums, and outdid its 150-160,000 estimation by selling roughly 192,000 copies in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan, and landing Mars at No. 2. For comparison, Mars’s debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans managed to sell 84,000 in its best week back in 2010. Both Game and Big Boi fell within their forecasted ranges, as Jesus Piece managed to move 86,000 copies, coming in at No. 6 on the charts, and Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors distributing 30,000 units, ranking the OutKast emcee in No. 34. The two hip-hop albums managed to sell fewer copies than each of their predecessors, Game’s The R.E.D. Album, debuted at No. 1 2011 with 98,000, and Big Boi’s solo debut album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty entered at No. 3 with 62,000 in 2010. Topping the charts this week was none other than Taylor Swift with her fourth studio album Red, selling 208,000 copies, marking its fifth appearance at No.1.
