[ALBUM SALES]: Top 10 Album Sales, Week 9/17/13 … Congrats To The Weeknd & 2 Chainz On Top 3 Debuts!

The Weeknd JUST missed a number one debut for his sophomore effort Kiss Land…coming in a mere 3000 copies behind this week’s top charter, Keith Urban’s Fuse. How annoying! Regardless, 96k is still an amazing number, so congrats, Abel! Get the rest of the top 10 below.

R&B and country battled it out on the Billboard charts this week. The Weeknd and Keith Urban faced off, but the Canadian crooner was narrowly edged out of the top spot.

His album Kiss Land debuts at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 after selling 96,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan (via Billboard). He fell less than 3,000 copies short of this week’s chart-topper Keith Urban, whose album Fuse entered at No. 1 with 98,000.

Last year, The Weeknd’s mixtape compilation Trilogy debuted at No. 4 with 86,000, and has moved 385,000 units to date.

During his show at the Greek Theatre in L.A. last night, his friend Drake prematurely announced that he had the No. 1 album in the country.

“NUMBER 1 ALBUM IN THE COUNTRY. I LOVE MY FANS XO, WE GOOD!!!!!!” tweeted The Weeknd. But after the final sales were revealed, he added, “AWWH. SO CLOSE THEY HAD TO RECOUNT!!! STILL GOT THE BEST FANS!! THANK YOU XO.”
