Lawson one of the top new bands of 2012 with three Top 10 singles in less than six months, said singles haven’t had much staying power, with a week each in the top tier. First hit When She Was Mine slumped 4-24 on its second week, while follow-up Taking Over Me slid 3-17. Latest single Standing In The Dark debuted at number six last week and now falls to number 11 (27,990 sales) while the band’s introductory album, Chapman Square, debuts at number four (21,168 sales).
We have long supported Lawson and were one of the first outlets to interview the guys. Definitely pleased to see their album do well.
