The set starts with 21,000 equivalent album units earned in the July 23-29 tracking week, according to MRC Data, with nearly all its units via album sales.
Imagined follows the reign of its parent album, McCartney III, which crowned the Jan. 2 Top Rock Albums chart with 101,000 units. The two LPs have swelled McCartney’s total to four Top Rock Albums No. 1s (dating to the chart’s 2006 start). He also led with Memory Almost Full (2007) and Egypt Station (2018).
Imagined was initially released April 16 on digital platforms (and dented Top Album Sales for a week at No. 60). The 12-song album features re-dos and remixes of songs from McCartney III by artists including Beck, Josh Homme and St. Vincent.
