Social Club member FERN’s debut solo project, the 68 & Douglas EP, made multiple appearances on Billboard charts for the week of Dec. 26.
68 & Douglas, which FERN released on Dec. 4,
charted No. 15 among Top Christian Albums, No. 21 among Independent Albums and No. 5 among Heatseekers Albums .
Billboard explained how projects qualify for the Heatseekers chart: “This week’s top-selling albums
by new or developing acts, defined as those who
have never appeared on the top 100 of the
Billboard 200 or the top 10 of R&B/Hip-Hop
Albums, Country Albums, Latin Albums, Christian
Albums or Gospel Albums. If a title reaches any of those levels, it and the act’s subsequent albums are
then ineligible to appear on Heatseekers Albums,
ranked by sales data as compiled by Nielsen Music.”
68 & Douglas, which had charted on iTunes when it
became available for pre-order and on its release date, is the second retail project which FERN has dropped this year, having put out a full-length
project, US, with Social Club in March.
