The Vampire That Rocked The Chart

The soundtrack for the upcoming teen vampire romance TWILIGHT debuts at #1 on The Billboard 200.

TWILIGHT is the first soundtrack to hit #1 in advance of the movie's release since 8 MILE six years ago. That album topped the Nielsen/SoundScan chart for the week ending Nov. 3, 2002. The Eminem movie was released on Nov. 8.

Only five other soundtracks have ever hit #1 in advance of the movie's release. In 1997, PRIVATE PARTS hit #1 five days before the Howard Stern comedy opened. In 1994, MURDER WAS THE CASE hit #1 four months before the Snoop Dogg movie opened. In 1975, THAT'S THE WAY OF THE WORLD hit #1 one month before the little-seen Earth, Wind & Fire movie opened. In 1964, A HARD DAY'S NIGHT hit #1 two weeks before The Beatles movie opened. And in 1951 (hey, I said "ever"), SHOW BOAT hit #1 six weeks before the MGM musical opened.
