Wait — Ke$ha‘s Warrior debuted where on the Billboard Top 200? Yes, animals, the dollar-sign diva not only got her glitter-adorned posterior beat to the top of the main album chart by Taylor Swift, whose Red returns to the peak position for a fourth non-consecutive week, she also got bypassed by Wiz Khalifa with O.N.I.F.C. (#2, with 141,000 sold out of the gate). And Rod Stewart. And One Direction. And Michael Buble‘s year-old Christmas album. So has Warrior, which had to settle for a #6 entry (85,000 sold), lived up to its lead single’s title and died young — as in during its first week of release?
