Looks like Blake Shelton’s side gig as a coach on NBC singing competition The Voice is paying off in other lanes.

The country man leads the Billboard 200 album charts this week. His latest album, Red River Blue, sold 116,000 units, making it the highest debut of his career.

Surprisingly, following at No. 2 is Incubus’ If Not Now, When? with 80,000 copies bought. And again, Adele posts a strong week. Her 21 moved 77,000 albums. Check out the rest of the top 10 after the jump.

      How is David Cook’s new CD doing?

      • fancypants

        I don’t know. I don’t check for David Cook. Hopefully it’s doing well.

    Adele and Beyonce have the best albums of the year. Love them both.

    YAY!!! SO happy for Blake he totally deserves it.. the album is great!

    • AcaseofGeo

      Yeah but all that national exposure on a “popular” TV program should’ve netted a much higher rate than just 116K sold.

    Bravo to Blake, but the real story is Adele still ‘Rolling …’. The amazing album just keeps on ticking!

    Adele’s album is amazing. Glad to see that its still going strong. She’s phenomenal.

    Wow….Album of the decade Born This Way is actually being bested by Selena Gomez! Where are you little monsters???? Instead of sending bullying email to Howard Stern about his interview with Momma, you could have been out buying and buying more copies!

  • Jaime

    I love that Lady Gaga is no longer in the top 10! You go ADELE!!!

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest factor to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly don’t realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as defined out the entire thing without having side effect , other people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
