|Bon Jovi scores first No. 1 album since 1988
NEW YORK (Billboard) - Bon Jovi topped the U.S. album charts for the first time since 1988 on Wednesday, while rock duo the White Stripes scored a personal best with a No. 2 debut for their latest release.
Bon Jovi's "Lost Highway" sold 292,000 copies in the week ended June 24, the rock troupe's biggest one-week sum since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales data in 1991. The Island/Mercury Nashville set is Bon Jovi's third No. 1 album, joining 1988's "New Jersey" and 1987's "Slippery When Wet."
Sales were fueled in part by the group's new country fanbase, wrangled in with the Grammy-winning 2006 hit "Who Says You Can't Go Home" featuring Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles.
