The Jonas Brothers are #1

August 20, 2008

As expected, the Jonas Brothers score their first No. 1 album on The Billboard 200 this week with “A Little Bit Longer.” The Hollywood effort bows with 517,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan, the third biggest sales frame this year behind Lil Wayne‘s “Tha Carter III” (1,006,000) and Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends” (721,000).

The trio also scores the rare feat of having two albums simultaneously in the upper-most echelon of the chart, as their self-titled sophomore set rises 11-10 with 31,000 (-4%) in its 54th chart week. It’s the first time a group has scored two concurrent top 10 albums since ‘N Sync on the chart dated Jan. 2, 1999, with “Home for Christmas” at No. 10 and “‘N Sync” at No. 2.

But that’s not all. The soundtrack to the Disney film “Camp Rock,” which stars — you guessed it — the Jonas Brothers, stays put at No. 8 for a second week with 50,000 (+6%).

    Personally I think they’re overrated as a singing group. But they look great in their tight jeans.
