yes they do. but its still impressive that its #1 in 20 something countries
Why? what other albums debuted that day or those hours when it released? As i said doesnt a heap of albums that are released go number one for a few hours or at least a day, for the first few days everyone jumps on it and buys it and it goes number 1. Itunes should do it by the week and then it would actually be an achievement for an album to reach number 1.
Dont get me wrong to go number 1 in 23 countries on itunes is nice, but can we wait for the billboard numbers of how many countries it will go number 1 in? Im guessing 2, the US and Canada. As Jay-Z & Kanye have only gone number 1 outside of the US or canada twice, 'In My Lifetime, Vol. 1' which went number 1 in the UK and Kanye's Graduation which went number 1 in the UK as well.
