(Updated) Interesting First Week Sales

Well, blink ... DIDN'T ACTUALLY DO SO BAD (UPDATED NUMBERS)... despite the fact that CDs are dead tech and album sales don't really mean anything to me, I sometimes find the numbers interesting.

1blink-182
neighborhoods


UPDATE: 155,000 copies (sorry, but this is the nature of relaying the first "final" numbers published)
2 J Cole
