Juno boots Alicia Keys

[cut]

More proof than Juno is made of win: The official movie soundtrack bumped Alicia Keys for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 this week!

The Rhino soundtrack to “Juno” becomes the label’s first No. 1 album on The Billboard 200, moving up 2-1 with a 13% increase to 65,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It’s the first film soundtrack to top the chart since last year’s “Dreamgirls” and the first from an Academy Award best picture nominee since “Titanic” reached the summit on Jan. 24, 1998.

Now I’m not saying Alicia Keys doesn’t deserve to be #1, it’s just (as stated above) uncommon for a movie soundtrack to snag that spot.

And honestly, I don’t think a compilation of such songs wouldn’t have climbed as far as it has without the movie– all the songs fit so well. I think people are wanting to recreate the whole Juno experience after they’ve seen the movie. Or maybe I’m way off, who knows.

Regardless, another Congrats to the Juno crew!
