The album may have been hotly-anticipated but Christina Aguilera’s Bionic LP wasn’t able to muster up enough strength to take over the top two spots, debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 charts.
Bionic was beaten out by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at number 2 and Fox’s smash hit musical-comedy series Glee which took the top spot.
Bionic managed 111,838 sales from June 7th – June 14th, however across the pond the album debuted at number one, beating out Alicia Keys’ Element of Freedom for the number one spot in the UK.
Having heard the album, the number three spot sounds about right, quite literally. On the other hand, the rehashing of popular songs by Glee doesn’t deserve the number one spot, but that’s just my personal opinion.
