U2 album stumbles in Billboard chart after free iTunes debut

U2's lead singer Bono apologised last week to users who objected to receiving an automatic download of the band's latest album, after thousands complained they did not want the album and that it took up precious storage space on Apple devices.

Florida Georgia Line is the third consecutive country music act to top the chart after Jason Aldean, who landed at No. 1 with "Old Boots, New Dirt," and Blake Shelton, who notched the top spot with "Bringing Back the Sunshine" two weeks ago.

Aldean's album dropped to No. 2 this week, while Shelton's record dropped from No. 6 to No. 15.

Other new debuts in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart this week include veteran rocker Bob Seger at No. 3 with "Ride Out," and You+Me, the duo formed by pop singer Pink and folk artist Dallas Green from City and Colour, at No. 4 with "Rose Ave."

Rapper The Game debuted at No. 7 with "Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf," former Google employee-turned-rapper Hoodie Allen landed at No. 8 with "People Keep Talking" and British singer Jessie J rounded out the top 10 with "Sweet Talker."

For the week ended Oct. 19, total album sales clocked in at 4.4 million units, down 6 percent from the comparative week in 2013, while year-to-date album sales tallied at 199.93 million, down 14 percent from the same point last year, Billboard said.
