Paramore’s ‘Riot!’ Hits Top 10 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart After Vinyl Reissue

Paramore’s 2007 album Riot! reaches the top 10 of Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart for the first time, thanks to a new pressing on silver colored vinyl.

The set re-enters the chart dated June 12 at No. 8 with 7,000 copies sold in the U.S. in the week ending June 3 (up 1,380%), according to MRC Data, nearly all from sales of the new vinyl edition. Riot! had previously debuted and peaked at No. 20 on the June 30, 2007-dated chart. The album was issued on silver colored vinyl on May 28 as part of the Fueled by Ramen record label’s ongoing 25th-anniversary festivities.

Elsewhere on the new Top Album Sales chart, as earlier reported, Taylor Swift’s Evermore returns to No. 1 (jumping 73-1) with the largest sales week of 2021 (192,000; up 8,307%). Its sales surge is owed to the album’s release on vinyl, Swift-signed CDs and deep discounting on its digital album.

Plus, new albums from Blackberry Smoke and DMX debut in the top 10, while Playboi Carti’s Whole Lotta Red hits a new chart high, following its release on vinyl.

Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart ranks the top-selling albums of the week based only on traditional album sales. The chart’s history dates back to May 25, 1991, the first week Billboard began tabulating charts with electronically monitored piece count information from SoundScan, now MRC Data. Pure album sales were the measurement solely utilized by the Billboard 200 albums chart through the list dated Dec. 6, 2014, after which that chart switched to a methodology that blends album sales with track equivalent album units and streaming equivalent album units.

Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour slips 1-2 in its second week on Top Album Sales, with 24,000 copies sold (down 67%).

DMX’s posthumous album Exodus debuts at No. 3 with 14,000 sold, while Blackberry Smoke’s new You Hear Georgia starts at No. 4 with 12,000 sold. It’s the eighth top 10 for DMX, and the third for Blackberry Smoke. It’s also the highest-charting effort yet for the latter act, eclipsing the No. 6 peak of 2016’s Like an Arrow.

Playboi Carti’s Whole Lotta Red re-enters Top Album Sales at No. 5 with 8,500 sold (up 7,203%) following the set’s May 28 release on vinyl LP. The album initially debuted and peaked at No. 6 from its digital downloads upon its release on Dec. 25, 2020. (The set has yet to be issued on CD.)

Twenty One Pilots’ Scaled and Icy falls 2-6 in its second week (8,000 sold; down 84%), Swift’s former No. 1 Folklore jumps 25-7 (7,000; up 59% thanks to a surge in vinyl LP sales), Harry Styles’ chart-topping Fine Line rises 11-9 (6,000; down 11%) and Alan Jackson’s Where Have You Gone dips 7-10 (nearly 6,000; down 48%).

Carrie Underwood, Beyonce & More Who Dominate Their Awards Show Categories

Carrie Underwood won video of the year for the ninth time at the 2021 CMT Music Awards. Here are other music stars who have been perennial winners in their categories at awards shows.

Carrie Underwood, Beyonce & More Who Dominate Their Awards Show Categories

Carrie Underwood won video of the year for the ninth time at the 2021 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night. She took the award this time for the video for “Hallelujah,” a collab with John Legend that appeared on her 2020 Christmas album, My Gift.

And that’s not the only CMT Music Awards category that Underwood has thoroughly dominated. She has won eight times for female video of the year. (Do you get the sense that CMT viewers really like her?)

Underwood isn’t the first music star who has won so many times in a given category at an awards show that the category should almost be named in their honor. Here’s a healthy sampling of other artists who have won eight or more times in a category at various award shows — both EGOT-level and genre-specific shows. (In each case, these artists hold the record for the most wins in that category at that show.)

Enrique Iglesias: The second-generation Latin heartthrob won the American Music Award for favorite Latin artist eight times between 1999 and 2016. Fun fact: The category was added the year before Iglesias began his win streak. The winner that first year: his dad, Julio Iglesias.

Garth Brooks: The country titan won the American Music Award for favorite country male artist eight times between 1992 and 2000. Brooks’ trophy case is jammed with other awards too. He won the CMA Award for entertainer of the year seven times between 1991 and 2019 and the ACM Award in that category six times between 1990 and 1998.

The Statler Brothers: The veteran group took the CMA Award for vocal group of the year nine times between 1972 and 1984. Fun fact: Despite the name, only two members of the group (Don and Harold Reid) were brothers and none of the group members had the surname Statler.

Alfred Newman: The late film composer and one of the founders of the Newman film music dynasty won the Academy Award for best original score nine times between 1938 (Alexander’s Ragtime Band) and 1967 (Camelot).

Miranda Lambert: Lambert won the ACM Award for female vocalist of the year nine years in a row between 2009 and 2017. The star also took the CMA Award in that category seven times between 2010 and 2017.

Reba McEntire: The country icon won the American Music Award for favorite country female artist 10 times between 1988 and 2004.

Vince Gill: The balladeer won the Grammy for best male country vocal performance nine times between 1990 (“When I Call Your Name”) and 2006 (“The Reason Why”). In 2011, the Grammys combined the male and female categories into best country solo performance. Gill won that award in March for “When My Amy Prays.”

Beyoncé: Queen Bey won the BET Award for best female R&B/pop artist 10 times between 2004 and 2019 — and she is nominated again this year.

Max Martin: The Swedish hitmaker won songwriter of the year at the ASCAP Pop Music Awards 11 times between 1999 and 2018.

John Williams: The legendary film composer won the Grammy for best score soundtrack for visual media 11 times between 1975 (Jaws) and 2016 (Star Wars: The Force Awakens). On the other side of the pond, Williams won the BAFTA Award for best original music seven times between 1975 (a dual award for both Jaws and The Towering Inferno) and 2005 (Memoirs of a Geisha).

Aretha Franklin: The eternal Queen of Soul won the Grammy for best R&B female vocal performance 11 times between 1967 (“Respect”) and 1987 (the album Aretha). This includes eight years in a row between 1967 and 1974, when she was at her commercial and creative peak.

Brooks & Dunn: Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn won the ACM Award for vocal duo of the year 16 times between 1991 and 2009. They did nearly as well at the CMA Awards, winning in that category 14 times between 1992 and 2006.

Alabama: The country quartet won the American Music Award for favorite country band/duo/group 17 times between 1983 and 2003.

Jimmy Sturr: The polka king won the Grammy for best polka album 18 times between 1986 (I Remember Warsaw) and 2008 (Let the Whole World Sing). The Grammys eliminated the polka category after 2008, in part because of the lack of competition in the category.
