The Black Keys Beat Michael Jackson For Billboard #1 Album

 
Posted May 21st, 2014 @ 4:43pm

The Black Keys have their first No. 1 album.

Turn Blue debuted on top of the Billboard 200 chart.  The blues-rock duo beat Michael Jackson to land at the top spot.

The Black Keys' new album sold over 164,000 copies in its first week of release.  Michael Jackson is dead, but a collection of remixes and rarities called XScape landed at No. 2 at 157,000 copies.

It may not be as big as 1992 when Nirvana's Nevermind album knocked Michael Jackson's Dangerous album off of the top spot, but it is still pretty impressive for The Black Keys.
