Rise Against’s “The Black Market” (Universal) debuts at number one on the Top Albums chart with 14,000 units sold. It is the group’s third straight non-compilation release to debut in the top position. With 8,000 units sold, it is also their biggest one week sales total for digital albums.
Jason Mraz’s “Yes” (Warner) enters at No. 2 with 12,000 units sold. It is his third straight top ten album and just falls shy of the number one debut of his last album, 2012’s “Love Is A Four Letter Word.”
Weird Al Yankovic’s “Mandatory Fun” (Sony) debuts at No. 3 with 6,000 units sold. It is his first top ten album in the SoundScan era and it more than doubles the first week sales total of his last album, 2011’s “Alpocalypse,” which peaked at No. 13.
