Congratulations to Vampire Weekend for debuting on Billboard at NUMBER ONE for their sophomore LP Contra with 123,597 units sold in the release's first week. That's just 25,000 less than Ke$ha, who had the top spot last week.

The album is really great (especially Diplomat's Son). There really aren't any duds on this one. The fact that they made the best of their backlash to backlash status with a killer follow-up is just awesome for them.

Way to go, Vampy!

Diplomat's soon is also a personal favorite of mine.
