Just as it was looking like Adele‘s 21 was going to over take Nicki Minaj‘s Roman Reloaded, Richie’s Tuskegee snuck in as the top album on the Billboard 200.
His album Tuskegee sold 129,000 units this week, thanks largely to his CBS special, ACM Presents: Lionel Richie & Friends in Concert.
The show got over 7.7 million viewers tuned into the show, a day after the ACM awards. Adele still held strong with +90K units sold, followed by Nicki’s 81,000, a 68 percent decline from her debut last week.
Rounding out the top 5 was Monica‘s New Life debuting at number four and One Direction‘s Up All Night staying at five.
And its been 26 years since Lional was on the top of the music charts!!
It might be tax day on Tuesday but Lionel Richie is said to owes the IRS $1.1 MILLION in unpaid income tax…from two years ago!!!
The money might be just pocket change to Richie, if he ends up not paying soon, the government can start taking from him!
He need to just scrumble for the check book and sent it right away!
