Star Trak/Interscope Records singer Robin Thicke achieved his first #1 album in a decade-long career. After a drop in first-week sales and chart positioning on 2011’s Love After War, the Los Angeles, California native bounced back in a big way with Blurred Lines. Thicke beat out Five Finger Death Punch by over 50,000 units.

Also entering the Top 5 was Tech N9ne with his 13th studio album, Something Else. This Strange Music project entered at #4, equalling 2011’s All 6’s & 7’s chart position. Something Else out-sold the 11th LP by nearly 2,000 units, making it a career benchmark for the Kansas City flame-spitta. Hov still steady at #3 trying to make a push for platinum status.
