Help for Haiti Now Goes No. 1

The official chart isn’t released until tomorrow, but industry predictions indicate that the Hope for Haiti Now benefit album, which pulls together live performances from Friday night’s telethon, will bump Vampire Weekend out of the top spot on the Billboard 200 with around 150,000 copies sold. More notably, it’ll be the first-ever digital-only No. 1 album in the history of the chart. Hooray, charity! Boo, shiny plastic discs! [Billboard]
