Ozzy Osbourne scores Top 3 US and UK debuts with Patient Number 9

Ozzy Osbourne has scored top 3 debuts in both the US and his native UK with his latest album, “Patient Number 9.”

According to Billboard, the project enters the US Billboard 200 at No. 3 with opening week sales of 56,000 equivalent album units earned; of that sum, album sales comprise 52,000 (it debuts at No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart — Osbourne’s first No. 1 on that 31-year-old chart), SEA units comprise 3,000 (equaling 4.64 million on-demand official streams of the album’s songs) and TEA units comprise a negligible sum.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album.

In the UK, the Official Charts Company reports the 2022 album enters the Top 100 at No. 2 to deliver Ozzy his highest-charting solo record in the region; the set also topped the Official Vinyl Albums Chart.

The project also earned Top 10 chart entries in more than a dozen other countries.

“Patient Number 9” was produced by guitarist Andrew Watt and built around a core lineup of veteran Ozzy guitarist Zakk Wylde, Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith; the project includes guest appearances by Jeff Beck, Tony Iommi, Eric Clapton, Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters, Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses and Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction.
