The first new solo album in ten years from Ozzy, the highly praised ORDINARY MAN (released through Epic Records), is the #1 rock album in the world, topping multiple charts in its successful first week of release. In the United States, the album entered the Billboard charts at #3 on the Top 200 chart, #2 on the Top Album Sales chart (making it his highest charting album ever on the tally, surpassing Ozzy’s No. 3 peak with the album Black Rain) and #1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart. This marks OZZY’s fifth consecutive Top 5 entry and sixth Top 10 entry on the Top 200 chart. It also places ahead of his most recent offering, SCREAM, which arrived at #4 in 2010. Globally, the record ORDINARY MAN has entered the charts in the Top Ten in seven countries making it the highest charting album of OZZY’s career. It debuted at #3 on the U.K. chart, breaking OZZY’s previous peak on the charts 40 years ago for Blizzard of Ozz (which topped off at #7). OZZY also smashed his highest chart position in Australia, debuting at #4 and cracking the Top 10 there for the first time in his career. OZZY secured his solo career’s highest marks in Germany as well, coming in at #2. Elsewhere, the album earned Top Ten positions in Sweden at #1, the U.S. #3, Italy #6 and Ireland #6.
