Jack White Earns Second No. 1 Solo Album

Jack White made it two in a row last week, as the Detroit-bred singer-guitarist’s second solo album became his second consecutive No. 1 release.

White’s “Lazaretto” (Columbia) became the only new entry in the U.S. top 10, taking the uppermost slot with a 138,000-unit first-week tally, according to Nielsen SoundScan data for the week ending June 15. The former White Stripes frontman’s previous solo set “Blunderbuss” also crowned the chart in the spring of 2012.

White’s first-week sum more than doubled the total for last week’s No. 1 debut, country singer Miranda Lambert’s “Platinum,” which dropped to No. 2 with a 62,000-unit score. The rest of the top 10 included two soundtrack albums and a pair of “Now” hits compilations.

The top 10 was completed by the “Frozen” soundtrack (No. 3, 50,000 sold, off 4%), Brantley Gilbert’s “Just As I Am” (No. 4, 40,000, down 18%), the “Fault In Our Stars” soundtrack (No. 5, 38,000, up 5%), the “Now 50” comp (No. 6, 34,000, down 17%), Coldplay’s “Ghost Stories” (No. 7, 34,000, off 26%), the Black Keys’ “Turn Blue” (No. 8, 26,000, up 9%), Michael Jackson’s “Xscape” (No. 9, 35,000, off 2%) and the “Now Country 7” compilation (No. 10, 22,000, off 26%).

Next week’s chart will be rearranged by the arrival of new titles by chanteuse Lana Del Rey, U.K. pop-soul sensation Sam Smith and hard rock perennials Linkin Park.
