New Music Report: Jakob Dylan

April 7th, 2010
This week’s New Music Report pick is Jakob Dylan’s Women & Country, the second solo record from the Wallflowers frontman. Dylan’s last album, Seeing Things, was a somewhat underwhelming collection of spare ballads featuring nothing more than guitar and his voice. But he’s ratcheted up his ambitions for his new effort by teaming up with T Bone Burnett, the producer who worked on the Wallflowers’ 1996 breakthrough Bringing Down the Horse. On Women & Country, ...

On the Charts: Usher Is Number One Despite Bieber Sales Burst

April 7th, 2010
Photo: Bedder/GettyJustin Bieber enjoyed just one week at Number One before his mentor Usher booted him from the Billboard 200’s top spot with his own disc, Raymond V Raymond. While Raymond marks Usher’s third consecutive Number One debut, its sales of 329,000 copies couldn’t match 2004’s Confessions (1 million-plus) and 2008’s Here I Stand (443,000 copies) according to Nielsen SoundScan. Still, Raymond V Raymond was the third-highest selling debut of 2010 behind Lady Antebellum’s Need ...

“American Idol” Loses First Ratings Fight to “Dancing With the Stars”

April 7th, 2010
Photo: Becker/FOXThere are plenty of reasons why American Idol’s ratings have slipped this season: the exit of Paula Abdul, a lackluster field of Idol hopefuls, repetitive theme weeks and Simon Cowell’s inevitable departure.
