The Chicks first album in 14 years, Gaslighter, entered the chart at No. 3 and Jhené Aiko’s Chilombo jumped from No. 43 to No. 6. The latter benefited from a deluxe reissue July 17 which added nine tracks.
The Dixie Chicks, whose new album, Gaslighter, debuts July 17, have changed their name to The Chicks. “We want to meet this moment,” the band wrote in a statement on its website. The trio now share the name of the group with that of a 1960s sister group from New Zealand, who has allowed the former Dixie Chicks to share the name.
The group’s new Twitter handle is @thechicks and the cover for the new album has been changed accordingly.
