The album sold over 154,000 units according to Nielsen SoundScan on its first week. It is the best selling debut of the American Idol compilation series, and at #3 on the Billboard 200, behind the Disney Channel Original Movie's High School Musical Soundtrack and the Dixie Chicks' Taking the Long Way.
