Christian Album Sales – Week of 4/10/12

Trip Lee’s new hip-hop album Good Life debuted at #17 with over 21,000 copies sold. This is a career-best and ties Lecrae’s #17 debut with Rehab in 2010, although Rehab sold over 25,000 copies. Some Trip Lee chart history:

If They Only Knew – 2006 – N/A

Between Two Worlds – 2010 – #58
Good Life – 2012 – #17 (21,000)

Demon Hunter lands #36 with True Defiance. That is a career-best chart position for the heavy band, but slightly fewer sales than their last one.

The Triptych – 2005 – #136

(For whatever reason, Soundscan includes sales from Christian outlets in their weekly totals that determine the Billboard 200 chart positions, but they don’t include them in their reported totals. So I just add up all the weekly totals and compare them to the reported totals to see how many sales are missing from Christian outlets.)
