All that Kampaigning has apparently paid off.
Korn’s third album, “Follow The Leader,” will jump into the number one spot on the album chart after its first week in stores according to sales figures released by SoundScan on Wednesday.
The band’s crunching sound roped in more than 268,000 record buyers in its first week in stores, outpacing the Beastie Boys “Hello Nasty” by more than 100,000 copies. The Boys will come in at number two, while last week’s number one, Snoop Dogg’s “Da Game Is To Be Sold, Not To Be Told,” slips to number three.
After Korn, the next highest debut of the week belongs to the Insane Clown Posse, whose “Vol. 1-2-Forgotten Freshness” arrives at number 46 on next week’s chart with more than 30,000 copies sold in its first week.
Also arriving on next week’s chart are the Temptations (at number 59 with “Phoenix Rising”), and the hip-hop heavy soundtrack to the Wesley Snipes vampire slayer flick “Blade” (at number 70).
