SoundScan noted that sales for the album, compiled by MTV Networks from performances at Friday's telethon, were particularly impressive since it was available barely two days — between late Friday and Sunday, when the weekly tracking ends.
More than $66 million has been raised from the telethon — which more than 80 million people watched — according to The Associated Press.
"Tik Tok" singer Ke$ha's Animal debuted at No. 2 with 152,000 albums sold. Vampire Weekend's Contra came in at No. 3 and Spoon's Transference at No. 4. 2010 Grammy Nominees compilation album bowed at No. 5.
