Jack White, 'Blunderbuss': Artist Scores His First No. 1 Album On Billboard Charts

Jack White's debut solo album Blunderbuss has topped the Billboard 200 albums chart, scoring White his first No. 1 album.

Blunderbuss sold 138,000 copies in its first week, reports Billboard. The highest chart of any of White's previous releases was the White Stripes' 2007 album Icky Thump, which debuted and peaked at No. 2, selling 223,000 units in its first week.

Meanwhile, across the pond, White has also landed a No. 1 album, knocking labelmate Adele's 21 off the top of the U.K. albums chart.

White recently collaborated with "Amex Unstaged" to perform a live set, directed by actor Gary Oldman. The set featured a career-spanning setlist, including "Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground," ”I’m Slowly Turning Into You” and new single ”Sixteen Saltines.”
