Godsmack tops Billboard albums chart

GodsmackImage Credit: Paul BrownHard rock rocked Billboard‘s albums chart this week. Godsmack‘s latest effort, Oracle, debuts at No. 1. with 117,000 copies sold. It’s their third album to top the chart. Lady Antebellum‘s Need You Now holds strong at No. 2 with 97,000 units moved. MercyMe’s The Generous Mr. Lovewell debuts  at No. 3 with 88,000.

Working legends Carole King and James Taylor’s duets album, Live at the Troubadour, premiers at No. 4 with 78,000. This means that Taylor has had one album in the top 10 in each decade since the 1970s. Behind them is Justin Bieber‘s My World 2.0, which drops one slot to No. 5 with 64,000. Next is the Deftones’ Diamond Eyes” with 62,000 copies sold.

New Dixie Chicks side project Court Yard Hounds debuts at No. 7 with their self-titled set, moving 61,000 copies. And AC/DC’s Iron Man 2 soundtrack falls three places to No. 8 with 55,000 sold.

Toni Braxton’s Pulse is the last debut to appear in the top 10. She comes in at No. 9 with 54,000 copies sold. Usher’s Raymond v. Raymond closes out the top 10, falling four spots with 51,000. B.o.B’s The Adventures of Bobby Ray was last week’s chart king, but fell to No. 12 this time around with 36,000 sold.

Surprised B.o.B fell out of the top 10 so fast? Did you buy the Godsmack album? Talk to us.

Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum lead pack of 2010 CMT Music Awards nominees

Carrie-UnderwoodImage Credit: Bob Charlotte/PR PhotosYour 2010 CMT Music Awards nominees were announced today — sorry I’m a little slow in getting this up, news cycle! — and they’re a predictable pack. Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, and Taylor Swift lead with three nominations each; everyone else in country music trails with two. Okay, I’m oversimplifying a bit, but no, really, it’s kinda everybody. After all, this is country music’s most democratic awards show — you kids can head over to CMT.com this very second and votevotevote for your faves, or they will lose, and it will be your fault.

Who are the standouts? I will be registering at least one click for Miranda “Off the Market” Lambert‘s clever “White Liar” vid (watch yourself, Blake), one for Brad Paisley’s “Welcome to the Future” clip, and one for the surprisingly wonderful Jason Aldean/Bryan Adams collabo on “Heaven.” I’ll be curious to see if Sugarland cancel themselves out in the Duo category (with the heartbreak of “Keep You” vs. the bubbles of “Nightswimming/Joey”), thus opening the door for Brooks & Dunn’s Very Last Win At The CMT Awards Ever OMG. And as far as snubs go, I guess ’bout now Martina McBride has gotta be wondering if she even works here anymore.

The ceremony will be held June 9 in Nashville, and at this point I am far less interested in your “awesome” host Kid Rock and far more interested in how CMT uses the ceremony to honor and celebrate (and hopefully raise money for) their poor drowned city. I know the network itself suffered damage had to relocate for several days during the flood, so I am certain they’ll step up and do it right.

Full list of noms after the jump; what do you think of the pack, Mixers? And who’s getting your vote? READ FULL STORY

Ke$ha, B.o.B., and Lady Antebellum: The death-metal YouTube covers you've been waiting for

keshaImage Credit: Anthony Delvin/PA Photos/Landov“Tik tok on the clock, but the party don’t … BLARGHGHGHGHGH!!!”

And thus, from the wood-paneled rec-room walls of Billboard Death Metal, a delicate flower of musical diversity blossoms.

The impressively focused group of hirsuite gentlemen behind BDM have now taken on, as their name implies, several recent top Billboard hits —including Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok,” Justin Beiber’s “Baby,” Rihanna’s “Rude Boy,” and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now”—and executed them in a style best described as “cookie monster hopped up on Metallica and bathtub meth.”

Usher earns ninth No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 single, Jay-Z gets 17th top 10

usher-jay-zImage Credit: Kent Miller/PR PhotosAs we reported yesterday, B.o.B steps aside this week, making way for Usher‘s “OMG,” to sit pretty at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 singles chart. B.o.B’s “Nothin’ on You” now is No. 2, while Rihnna’s “Rude Boy” backs into No. 3.

Lady Antebellum‘s “Need You Now” steps back from No. 4 to No. 5 and Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” from No. 5 to No. 6.

Don’t feel too bad for B.o.B. The rapper’s new single “Airplanes,” featuring Eminem and Hayley Williams is making a run for the top spot, shooting up from No. 9 to No. 7.

Ke$ha’s “Your Love Is My Drug” repeats at No. 8. Jason DeRulo’s “In My Head” falls from No. 7 to No. 9.

Jay-Z‘s “Young Forever” rounds out the top 10, jumping from No. 12 to No. 10. He now leads all rappers with the most to top 10 singles ever. He’s got 17 under his belt. Before “Young,” Jay’s 16 tied him with Ludacris. Luda’s on his heals, though. His “My Chick Bad,” featuring Nicki Minaj is at No. 11 this week.

Drake’s debut single “Over” from his forthcoming debut, Thank Me Later, moves up from No. 16 to No. 14. As does Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro” from No. 20 to No. 16.

Do you think Ludacris is going to catch Jay-Z soon? Happy Usher’s at No. 1 again?

B.o.B's 'Adventures' tops the 'Billboard' 200 albums chart

bobRiding the success of his smash “Nothin’ On You,” B.o.B’s  The Adventures of Bobby Ray debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week. Selling 84,000 copies, it’s a low topper. But I’m sure B.o.B will happily take the crown anyway. The Atlanta native is the first solo male act to have a debut hit No. 1 since Rick Ross’ Port of Miami did so in August of 2006.

Lady Antebellum‘s Need You Now spends its 14th straight week in the top five and second in a row at No. 2, selling 76,000 copies. U.K. rock band Bullet for My Valentine‘s Fever sold 71,000 and debuted at No. 3. Justin Bieber‘s “My World 2.0″ falls one spot to No. 4 with 69,000. AC/DC’s soundtrack to Iron Man 2, which features their greatest hits, dropped one slot to No. 5 with 52,000. And Usher’s inner battle, Raymond v. Raymond, dropped from No. 5 to No. 6 with 48,000. Melissa Etheridge’s Fearless Love debuts at No. 7 with 46,000. Actress and singer Miranda Cosgrove’s debut album Sparks Fly only flew to No. 8 with 36,000. Now 33‘s compilation set comes in at No. 9 with 30,000. Glee‘s The Power of Madonna TV soundtrack fell to No. 10 with 29,000 units sold.

Are you glad B.o.B hit No. 1? Did you think Melissa Etheridge would debut higher? Talk to us in the comments after the jump.

Jonas Brothers, Black Eyed Peas, Miley Cyrus, Lady Antebellum and more join 'Good Morning America' summer concert lineup

Good Morning America announced its summer concert lineup for 2010 today, and it looks like a good one: the Jonas Brothers, Black Eyed Peas, Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, and plenty of other hot acts will take the stage in Central Park to wake you up on Fridays, starting May 21. Hip-hop fans can enjoy Diddy and Dirty Money; Mom should like those sets from Sheryl Crow and the Go-Gos (it’s their final TV performance!); country fans get ambassadors in Lady Antebellum and Sugarland. The only real omissions I see are a big ol’ rock n’ roll band — were Nickelback/Bon Jovi/Linkin Park busy? — and that riot-causing wunderkind, Mr. Justin BiEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEber. And best of all, if you live in NYC, you can be there in person, for free.

Full schedule below. What do you think, Mixers? If you were in charge, who would fill those two “TBA” spots? READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber tops Billboard album chart again, while MGMT manages second place

justin_bieberImage Credit: Pamela LittkeyThis planet still revolves around Justin Bieber. For the second straight week (and third nonconsecutive) his My World 2.0 is No. 1 on the  Billboard 200 albums chart, selling 92,000 records.

It was a slow week on the chart: Bieber’s World is the lowest-selling album in the top spot in almost a year. The last to hold that dubious distinction was Chrisette Michele’s Epiphany, last May.

Psychedelic rockers MGMT‘s sophomore album, Congratulations, is the chart’s biggest debut, landing at No. 2 with 66,000 sold. It’s the best chart showing of their career, Billboard noted. Oracular Spectacular, their last album, never sold more than 17,000 in a week, but its steady sales have led it to a 606,000 total in the U.S.

The chart’s second-highest debut is Coheed and Cambria’s No. 5. ranking for their Year of the Black Rainbows, which sold 51,000 copies. It’s a step down from their last album, 2007’s No World For Tomorrow, which bowed at No. 6 but sold 62,000 units.

Usher, last week‘s No. 2, is now down to No. 4. His latest effort, Raymond v. Raymond, sold 64,000.

Riding off her performance on NBC’s Saturday Night LiveKe$ha‘s Animal returns to the top 10, moving from No. 16 to No. 8 with 31,000 sold.

Monica‘s Still Standing is doing just that in the top 10, holding steady 30,000 records sold at the No. 9 spot.

And Justin Bieber’s first installment of My World falls two spots No. 10 with 30,000.

Surprised MGMT couldn’t knock Bieber out of No. 1? Did you buy anything new this week? Let us know.
