OutKast’s Idlewild Debuts at #2, Loses Top Spot to Danity Kane
The soundtrack to OutKast’s long-delayed film, Idlewild, has landed in the number two spot on the Billboard 200 chart this week, after failing to outsell Diddy’s Making The Band protégés Danity Kane. The soundtrack, which doubles as the group’s sixth studio LP, moved about 196,000 units, roughly 38,000 less than Danity Kane’s self-titled debut. The first week sales represent quite a drop off for the Atlanta duo, whose last project, the Speakerboxxx/The Love Below double CD, moved 510,000 copies in its first week to debut at number one. Idlewild the movie also hit theaters last week, landing at number nine and pulling in $5.9 million at the box office. Elsewhere on the charts, DJ Kay Slay and Greg Street’s The Champions: The North Meets the South compilation landed at #57, moving just over 15,000 copies.
