Korn album fails to chart in Top 10 for first time since band's 1994 debut

Requiem, the new studio album from Korn, has debuted at No. 14 on the Billboard 200 chart after selling nearly 20,000 copies (roughly 14,000 of which were physical) in its first week of release in the United States.

While still impressive in this day and age, the results represent the poorest chart and sales showing for Korn since their 1994 self-titled debut.


Korn's previous album, 2019's The Nothing, sold 33,000 album-equivalent units in its opening week and bowed at No. 8 on the Billboard 200. Its precursor, The Serenity of Suffering, debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 after selling 55,000 copies in its first week.

To date, Korn's most successful album debut remains Issues (1999), which sold 575,000 copies in its opening week, propelling it to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.

The band first appeared on the Billboard 200 chart in early 1996 when Korn reached No. 72 more than a year after its release.
