Skrillex May Get First Top 10 Album This Week

Five-time Grammy Award nominee Skrillex may be on his way to his first top 10 album, as his latest release, “Bangarang,” could charge into the Billboard 200 chart’s top 10 this week.

He just earned his best week ever on the Billboard 200 as the digital-exclusive set bowed at No. 19 last week with 24,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan. That marked both the electronic artist’s highest charting album and biggest sales week yet.

“Bangarang” is holding together rather well in its second week of sales and may jump into the top 10 this week, as evidenced by SoundScan’s Building chart below. The tally is a precursor to the final Billboard 200 ranking — reflecting the first four days (Monday through Thursday) of SoundScan’s tracking week (ending Sunday) as reported by six major merchants. On the Building chart, Skrillex can be found at No. 9.
