Destiny's Child once again topped sales at the nation's record stores last week. But a chart topper of another era, Paul McCartney, was hot on their heels with a collection of hits from his post-Beatles band, Wings.
Wingspan: Hits & History will debut at #2 on next week's Billboard 200 albums chart; with 220,507 copies flying out of stores last week, it is McCartney's fastest-selling post-Beatles album, according to his label, Capitol Records. The album follows "Wingspan," an ABC television special aired last week that focused on McCartney's life with his late wife, Linda McCartney.
Destiny's Child moved 358,979 copies of Survivor, according to SoundScan figures released Wednesday (May 16) the album sold more than 600,000 copies last week, debuting at #1 (see "Destiny's Child Knock Janet From Top Of Charts").
