            Sting’s The Last Ship debuts at #13. It's Sting's first studio album to miss the top 10 since Songs From The Labyrinth in 2006. And that was a special case: a classical album of music by composer John Dowland. This is Sting's first full-length album of original material to fall short of the top 10 since The Police's sophomore album Reggatta de Blanc in 1979. Ouch.

                                    Englishman in New York is Gold in Japan for over 100,000 single downloads.*

                                    Source: http://www.riaj.or.jp/data/others/chart/w140228.html

                                    * Japan used to have separate certifications for full-track songs downloaded on mobile phones and those downloaded on PCs. They have now been merged for one single format for all full-track downloads (finally!). Ringtones are still separate (thank god!).
