Brad Paisley Tops The Chart and Releases New Video

(Radio.com) Perhaps the old saying is true, that "all publicity is good publicity." Because after a week of living under the spotlight for his song "Accidental Racist," Brad Paisley's album Wheelhouse (which contains the song) has topped Billboard's Country Albums chart this week.

According to Nielsen SoundScan, Wheelhouse sold 100,000 copies last week. That was also enough to put it in the No. 2 spot on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well. Wheelhouse was hot on the heels of Paramore's new self-titled album, which topped the Billboard 200 this week with 106,000 copies sold.

Justin Timberlake took the third-best placement on the album chart this week, while the next three slots belong again to country artists: Blake Shelton with Based on a True Story… (61,000), Eric Church with his new live album Caught in the Act (61,000), and The Band Perry with Pioneer (56,000). Last week saw Timberlake at the top of the chart, with The Band Perry right behind him.

"Accidental Racist," though, isn't the only song giving Wheelhouse its attention this week. Brad's single "Beat This Summer" is continuing its climb up the country charts, with a new video for the song dropping this week as well. Watch it here.
