LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Music sales continue to bottom out this week, as Cake's latest, "Showroom of Compassion," sets a new record as the lowest-selling No. 1 album in Nielsen SoundScan history according to Variety.
The Sacramento-based band's sixth solo album sold 44,000 copies its first week in stores, according to SoundScan data for the week ending Jan. 16. That's 8,000 units less than last week's figure for Taylor Swift's "Speak Now," which set the previous record for the lowest-selling chart-topper of the post-1991 SoundScan era, according to Variety.
