'Girls' Music Tops 'Glee' In The Billboard Album Charts

Sorry, New Directions: "Girls" is moving in on the TV music scene.

Though "Glee" was once known for easily landing spots in the Top 100 on a weekly basis, Billboard reports that the Fox musical series is struggling and the music "Girls" is effortlessly topping the charts .

When Icona Pop's "I Love It," which is on the show's soundtrack, blasted during Season 2's third episode, it jumped to Number 69 on the charts. And Oasis' "Wonderwall" -- which Lena Dunham's character sang in a bathtub -- saw a 75 percent sales increase after Episode 4.

"Music is such a huge part of my creative process,” "Girls" creator Lena Dunham said in a statement when the "Girls" soundtrack was released on January 8. “I make playlists to write by and listen to as I head to set in the morning, and I experiment in editing with songs that the characters would love and that accurately reflect their struggles. 'Girls' music supervisor Manish Raval and I are crazy about everything from the pop that teen girls devour to the niche indie rock from days of yore. To collaborate with Fueled by Ramen and so many artists who inspire me on this compilation is a dream.”

"Girls" airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on HBO.
