Jamie Foxx‘s newest album, “Best Night of My Life,” debuts on the Billboard 200 in the No. 6 spot, making it the highest new entry of the week.
The actor and singer who famously portrayed the legendary Ray Charles is no stranger to late December releases. His previous two albums, “Unpredictable” in 2005 and “Intuition” in 2008, were also released during the holiday season.
Foxx’s fourth studio album (remember 1994’s “Peep This”?) has sold 144,000 copies in its first week.
Taylor Swift is still a force to be reckoned with, however, hanging on to the top of the chart with help from both last-minute and post-holiday sales. “Speak Now” hits the 276,000 mark this week according to Nielsen SoundScan.
On the digital front: Bruno Mars‘ “Grenade” is the No. 1 downloaded song, followed by Katy Perry‘s “Firework” at No. 2.
