The Black Keys have beaten Michael Jackson to the top of the albums chart to pick up their first number one. The duo’s ‘Turn Blue’ sold just 7,000 more copies than the King of Pop’s posthumous ‘Xscape’ to rocket to the top of the Billboard 200 on Wednesday – but the first-week sales were down 60,000 from the group’s 2011 release ‘El Camino,’ which debuted at two.
