Who would’ve thought that out of all Jack White’s projects — and there are quite a few – his debut solo album would be his first atop the Billboard charts? According to Yahoo! Music, Blunderbuss sold 138,000 copies in its first week out, topping Adele (84,000), UK boy band One Direction (50,000), and last week’s #1 Lionel Richie (78,000).
White’s other bands The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and the The Dead Weather have accumulated seven top 10 albums in total, with the White Stripes’ 2007 record Icky Thump peaking at #2 on the Top 200. Congratulations, Jack!
