This is true for “Weird Al” Yankovic, who has had an extremely successful 30 year musical parody career.
His career has spanned actual vinyl records, CDs, and now where music can be directly downloaded to computers, phones and tables.
In all that time however, he’s never had a Number 1 album on the Billboard 200 charts.
But the drought is over with “Mandatory Fun,” just released on July 15th, has reached the coveted #1 spot.
According to Nielsen SoundScan, “Mandatory” has sold 104,000 by July 20th.
SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991.
