    Ask Billboard


    Hi Gary,
    With Carrie Underwood's fifth studio album creeping closer, I was wondering: could you provide her album and top singles sales?
    Thank you,

    Hi Jeremy,

    Not only has the lead Storyteller radio single, "Smoke Break," already become a top five hit on Hot Country Songs, newly-unveiled track "Heartbeat" (which sounds like another potential radio hit from the set) reached No. 2 Friday (Oct. 9) on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140.
    As we wait for the set to arrive in full Oct. 23, here's a look at Underwood's career sales, according to Nielsen Music (of all her albums and 14 songs that have sold at least 1 million each):
    Some Hearts, 7.4 million (2005); Carnival Ride, 3.4 million (2007); Play On, 2.3 million (2009); Blown Away, 1.7 million (2012); Greatest Hits: Decade #1, 397,000 (2014). (All of these titles debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart.)

    Top-Selling Songs
    "Before He Cheats," 4.2 million; "Blown Away," 2.8 million; "Jesus, Take the Wheel," 2.4 million; "Cowboy Casanova," 2.3 million; "Good Girl," 2 million; "All-American Girl," 1.8 million; "Undo It," 1.6 million.
    "Last Name," 1.3 million; "Just a Dream," 1.28 million; "Two Black Cadillacs," 1.11 million; "Temporary Home," 1.093 million; "I Told You So," 1.089 million; "So Small," 1.088 million; "Something in the Water," 1 million.
    And, in a favorite comparison for Chart Beat readers, Underwood remains the best-selling American Idol contestant, with 15.3 million in U.S. career album sales. Storyteller will help pad her lead over Kelly Clarkson, who ranks second at 13.9 million.
