Michael Buble ‘To Be Loved’ Debuts at No. 1
For the fourth time in his croonin’ career, Canadian singer and onetime comedian Michael Buble has notched a No. 1 record. The swoon-inducing charmer and father-to-be is celebrating his latest, ‘To Be Loved,’ debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200. Congrats, Mr. Buble!
‘To Be Loved’ shifted 195,000 copies its first week in stores. It’s Buble’s fourth album in a row to top the charts.
Here’s the play-by-play of his three previous platters: 2011’s ‘Christmas,’ 2009’s ‘Crazy Love’ and 2007’s ‘Call Me Irresponsible’ all landed in the top slot. ‘Christmas’ was actually the second best-selling release of 2011, behind only Adele‘s ’21,’ and we all know how that record went on to do, becoming one of the best-sellers of the decade.
But it’s worth noting that Buble’s holiday set came out on October 25, so in just over two months of release in 2011, it trumped everything else that came out that year save for ’21.’ Impressive? Heck yes, especially since it was a holiday album.
Congrats to Buble on parking his well-dressed and handsome self in the top slot again. It was sorta impossible for him not to debut at No. 1, since he, well, he is amazeballs and was everywhere last week, promoting the release. He even took a minute to busk in the NYC subway, barbershop quartet style. Check it below!
