On the Billboard charts, Ryan has managed to snag the #1 spots on the Top Rock, Alternative, and Americana/Folk charts with his new album Prisoner.
It’s been a good week for Ryan Adams. While he didn’t quite manage to snag the #1 record in Australia, getting pipped by Busby Marou and the Fifty Shades soundtrack (ugh) and landing in 3rd place, he’s had a pretty brilliant result all-round.
On the Billboard charts, Ryan has managed to snag the #1 spots on the Top Rock, Alternative, and Americana/Folk charts with his new album Prisoner, wrapping up a handy little trifecta that puts him firmly atop the rock world right now.
As for the overall charts, his 16th studio record has landed at #8, his fifth top-10 record. According to Nielsen, he’s sold the equivalent of 45k albums – not a bad result at all.
The lead single ‘Do You Still Love Me’ isn’t quite burning the house down as much as the album is, hitting #7 on the relatively obscure Adult Alternative chart, but we’re sure he won’t be crying into his pillow considering the album’s success. We do still love you, Ryan – and it seems 45 thousand others do as well.
