Foo Fighters earn best-selling album of the week; ‘Medicine at Midnight’ lands at number three on ‘Billboard’ 200

Foo Fighters‘ Medicine at Midnight was the best-selling album of the week.

The 10th studio effort from Dave Grohl and company lands at number one on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart, which measures purely traditional album sales. The record sold a total of 64,000 copies in its first week.

On the Billboard 200, which began adding “equivalent album units” based on streaming numbers to its methodology in 2014, Medicine at Midnight starts at number three.

Medicine at Midnight is also the number-one vinyl record of the week, with 23,000 copies sold.

Foo Fighters have hit number one on the Billboard 200 twice in their career, with 2011’s Wasting Light and 2017’s Concrete and Gold. Both those records also led the Top Album Sales chart.

Medicine at Midnight was released February 5. It includes the singles “Shame Shame” and “Waiting on a War.”
