Fall Out Boy Tops The Billboard 200: This Week In Music

January 29th, 2015 10:44am EST
Fall Out Boy
As unbelievable as it may be, for a second straight week, Taylor Swift is NOT sitting at number one. That statement is enough for all to utter a collective gasp of shock. Swift’s slippage is definitely Fall Out Boy’s gain, as the uniquely titled American Beauty/American Psycho scores FOB another number one album.

Fall Out Boy were previously in the penthouse for Infinity On High (2007) and Save Rock and Roll (2013). In sales alone, American Beauty/American Psycho outperformed their previous effort, delivering more robust January sales totals to the tune of 192,000 copies. Wonder wha...

Ne-Yo Leads Albums To Check Out: This Week in Music
January 2015 has been a ‘louder’ musical month than anticipated. Music listeners have been bestowed more audio gifts than an usually available, so give a slow music industry credit. Hey, what would January 2K15 be without the “No Flex Zone” of hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd (Sremmlife), the “Uptown Funk” of Mark Ronson (Uptown Special), or “Lips Are Movin” courtesy of Meghan Trainor? Think about it!

This week isn’t nearly as dynamic as last week, but that doesn’t mean there are no interesting or notable albums to partake of. In a ‘slower’ week than last, R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo is definit...

Forgotten Friday Flick - 'The Game'
With the success of David Fincher’s film "Gone Girl" (due in no small part to Rosamund Pike’s performance of course!) it seemed fitting to revisit some of the lessor known earlier work of the visually gifted auteur – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! Today we’re going old school Fincher back in the day when his sinister style and visual flair was front and center. Matched with a captivating story, terrific twists and one killer cast, this was a film I consider to be Fincher’s finest. Not to worry "Fight Club" fans, it’s only…"The Game."

Meghan Trainor Debuts Robustly Atop The Billboard 200
Meghan Trainor had a big week – particularly for the dead of January. After weeks of domination by chart queen Taylor Swift, Trainor seized the number one spot as Title sold a robust 195,000 copies. This does NOT happen in January folks! Throw in Billboard’s multi-faceted formula, and the impact of the “All About That Bass” singer’s debut is even more impressive. Meghan Trainor is doing big things and definitely had the most special week of the newbies on the chart. If only the other newbies had such numbers which to boast.

Besides Trainor’s bow atop the charts – not to mention the...
