Disturb-ing News On the Charts This Week

Chicago noisemaker Disturbed debuts at the top of the Albums chart with their sixth studio album, Immortalized (Warner), selling 12,000 copies in the week ended Sunday. The band's catalogue has all debuted at No. 1 in the US, but in Canada it's the band's second, following '08's Indestructible. Their last release, 2011's Lost Children, peaked at 17.

Dr. Dre's Compton (Universal) — a number one album two weeks ago — rebounds 3-2 with the benefit of a CD companion to the movie-themed package. It sold slightly more than 9,000 copies in the week.

Bon Jovi's Burning Bridges (Universal) debuts at 4 with 5,400 copies sold. It is the weakest chart-debut for a studio release from New Jersey's longstanding hit-making band since 2000, when Crush debuted in the same spot.

Nashville country singer Kip (Christian) Moore's sophomore set, Wild Ones (Universal), debuts at 5 with 4,600 sales, four times the number of his previous highest one-week sales total. His debut album, Up All Night, peaked at 40 in 2012.

Folky singer-songwriter turned soulful R&B frontman Nathaniel Rateliff redeems himself with The Night Sweats (Universal) debuting at 7 with 2,700 copies sold.

Carly Rae Jepsen's much trumpeted E*mo*tion (Universal) makes the cut, at 8, with 2,600 copies sold. Her last three releases have all debuted in the top 10.

The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face" (Universal) skips 2-1 on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100. Unbelievably, it is his first number one in Canada. The track remains at the top of the Canadian Emerging Artists' chart for the 12th week. He currently has 1/5th of the songs on that Top 30 chart.
