  • Singapore International Albums Chart (1995-)

    Top 10 Albums of the Week*
    *As "compiled by SPVA from sales figures from record companies, retailers and radio station charts."

    SPVA = Singapore Phonogram Videogram Association (renamed RIAS in 2001)

    Published in Singapore newspaper The Straits Times.

    Charts were reported weekly on Saturdays. Archives of daily newspapers are available at:

    https://eresources.nlb.gov.sg/newspapers

    This chart is for international/English releases only. Local and Asian releases do not appear on this chart.


    NOTE: I do not live in Singapore and cannot access any of the files. I can only search the archive and see a written blub from the top of articles when searching for terms. Because of this, I can usually only see the Top 5 of the charts and sometimes only the Top 2. I did not find any results before November 1995, although the chart could be older. Results from many weeks are missing.

    I don’t own any of the charts or information and am just sharing info I found for fun.

    I'm not sure if I'm allowed to re-post the full charts and since they're very incomplete anyways (Top 5 or less) I could maybe post #1s and Top 5 entries by different artists?

    Any information about the chart, corrections, help etc would be great!
