    The Lumineers have their first number one album on the Billboard 200. Deftones appear at number two with 71,000 copies sold (69,000 pure album sales).


    Chris Stapleton’s Traveller dips 2-3 with 48,000 units (down 34 percent), while Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo descends 1-4 with 47,000 units (down 50 percent). The album fell 95 percent in traditional album sales, falling from a 28,000 start to a little more than 1,000 copies sold. (Much of its first week sales were bolstered by pre-orders not delivered until after the album saw a wide release on April 1. Those pre-orders were sold as part of a ticket/album bundle to his Yeezy 3 fashion show held at Madison Square Garden and screened via a live stream in movie theaters. The remaining sales were from Tidal and West’s official website.)

    Its good to see Deftones still selling so consistently after all this time. M83's numbers seem low however, especially considering how big Midnight City was for a while. Didn't sell nearly as much as HUWD.

    The Lumineers album is really growing on me. First few listens thought it was a bit dull, but after a few repeats starting to really get into it.

    I can't believe how much P!ATD is still selling after all this time.

    Good to see Deftones have such a good first week! Gore is such a good album
