Rob Zombie’s Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart
Lemme get a “YE-AH!” for Mr. Rob Zombie: his new album, The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Conspiracy Theory, has debuted in the peak position on Billboard‘s Top Album Sales chart. It’s his first time in the #1 spot on that particular chart.
The album, which was released March 12, sold 26,000 copies in its first week of release, 20,000 of which were physical (including 13,200 CDs, 6,500 vinyl copies, and 300 cassettes).
Additionally, the album debuted at #1 on Billboard‘s Independent Albums, Tastemaker Albums, and Vinyl Albums charts as well.
As for the overall Billboard 200, it took the #9 spot.
Technically, this marks a sales dip for Zombie: his last album, 2016’s Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser, sold 40,000 copies in its first week of release… which was up from the 34,000 copies sold in its first week of week of release in 2013… which was down from Hellbilly Deluxe 2 in 2010 (49,000 copies)… which was way down from 2006’s Educated Horses (120,000 copies)… which was a slight decline from The Sinister Urge in 2001 (150,000 copies)… which a slight raise from Hellbilly Deluxe in 1998 (121,000 copies).
Still, these numbers clearly ain’t nuthin’ at which to scoff. And it bears mentioning that ALL of Zombie’s solo albums have cracked the top 10 of the Top Album Sales charts.
In other words: Rob Zombie continues to be super-duper popular.
