Vampire Weekend have clinched the #1 spot atop of the Billboard charts with 123,597 units sold last week (124,192 total from last week’s rollover). This is a big deal. To put things in perspective, last weeks #1 debut was Ke$ha who sold only 25,000 more units than Vampire Weekend. To further push my point, Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavillion has sold a total of 150,141 units.
Brother Ali reported via his Twitter on Monday that Justin Timberlake (I know right?) stage-crashed Ali’s show at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Check out the above low-quality video that documented the impromptu collaboration. Maybe Brother Ali will write a song called “JT Is Here.”
Best part: Ali grabbed the mic from him before he was told that he just snatched from JT. Holy shit that shit was real.
