Hope for Haiti Now, collecting the live performances by U2, Jay-Z, Wyclef, Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Coldplay and others from the Clooney-powered telethon, has just become the first digital-only album to top the album charts. The compilation went on sale Saturday and was downloaded a whopping 171,000 times in just two days—plenty enough to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
All told, Friday’s telethon, watched by more than 80 million people, has raised north of $66 million for relief efforts. Rock on!
