            • Updated the 2019 post on the prior page. These "feats" are getting even more depressing- two top 10 sellers that rank 92 and 103 on the Billboard200.

              It's still noteworthy when the Billboard 200 No. 1 isn't the album that's No. 1 on Top Album Sales, but even then, more so when that title is No. 2 or even No. 3 on the Billboard 200. Anything lower, it kinda loses the luster. And we've even seen a couple of instances where the No. 1 Album Sales title ranked outside the Billboard 200 top 10.

              With that in mind, these are the 10 acts, per my research, whose albums hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200, but No. 1 on Top Album Sales and were within <10,000 from No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

              10. Madonna- 9,000 total units (3/28/15)
              9. Hillsong United-8,000 total units (5/11/19)
              8. John Mayer- 7,000 total units (2/11/17)
              7. Red Hot Chili Peppers- 6,000 total units (7/9/16)
              6. Moana Soundtrack- 5,000 total units (1/21/17)
              5. Josh Groban- 5,000 total units (10/6/18)
              4. Imagine Dragons- 2,000 total units (7/15/17)
              3. Brett Eldredge- 2,000 total units (8/26/17)
              2. Bon Iver- 1,000 total units (10/22/16)
              1. Kenny Chesney- <1,000 total units (11/19/16)

              • Front page gets an update with the week ending 09-28-2019.

                The Lumineers did pretty well, selling 73,000 copies in this tracking period.

                HolidayGuy, what's the lowest ranking top 10 seller you can recall? 103 sounds like a new low.

                • I will update this tonight as Zac Brown Band scores their 4th top seller with The Owl

                  • Wolf- sorry for the delayed response.

                    Looks like 154 (Jerry Garcia Band's Electric on the Eel) may be the low for a top 10 seller. And then 137 (Scott Stapp). We may be nearing a top 10 seller that doesn't even rank in the multi-metric top 200.

                    • We are now up to date on the front page.

                      The Beatles Abbey Road is the top seller of the week. This marks an unofficial 12th week at number one for the album, and it furthers the Beatles chart topping span on Album Sales to 55 years, 7 months and 25 days. How’s that for a group that broke up half of a century ago?

                      No other recording artist matches that feat in the history of either the Billboard 200 or Top Album Sales (which shares the same history prior to Dec. 2014)

                      Comment


                      • That would b pretty good for a group broken up so long ago.

                        I updated the prior page to reflect info for the Oct. 12 chart week (catching up).

                          • 2019 Analysis (as of the week ending November 2, 2019):

                            • During 20 of the 44 week charts, the top seller was not the most popular album in the nation.
                            • Not once but twice in 2019, the #1 on the Billboard 200 failed to chart on Top Album Sales (Jan. 19 and Jan. 26)
                            Hoodie SZN by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie topped the Billboard 200 with the lowest pure album sales to date: 670 copies sold + 54,330 album equivalent units (Jan. 26)
                            No.6 Collaborations Project by Ed Sheeran went to #1 on Top Album Sales with the lowest pure album sales in the history of Nielsen Soundscan: 16,000 copies sold (Aug. 3)
                            • There are 4 instances (all in 2019) in which the top seller failed to make the top 10 on the Billboard 200.
                            • For the first time ever, the #1’s on each chart failed to make the top 10 on the opposing metric (Oct. 26)
                            Walk The Sky by Alter Bridge holds the distinction for lowest ranking top seller on the Billboard 200: #16 (Nov. 2)

                            As mentioned by HolidayGuy, a few titles have made the top 10 on Top Album Sales but have missed the top 100 on the Billboard 200. I expect by next year, all of these notorious chart feats will be surpassed as the market continues its evolution.

                            • ^Thanks for the round-up, Wolf.

                              I updated the 2019 list on page 9 (including a couple of tinkers of other titles).

                              Maybe a revamp simply could be replacing "No. 1-selling" and "top 10-selling" with No. 1 and top 10, and just going off of May 25, 1991-present, as Billboard treats Top Album Sales as existing since then, since that was what the Billboard 200 once was.

                                  • Top Album Sales for December 21, 2019 is led by veteran rock act, The Who.

                                    The band first appeared on the Billboard 200 in 1967 with Happy Jack and have scored 11 top 10 albums, 3 that have now peaked at the #2 position.

                                    This is their highest ranking on the big chart since 1978, and Who is their first top selling album. This is also the longest climb to #1 by a rock band: 52 years, 7 months. The only other to have a longer wait than The Who? Tony Bennett (1957-2011; 54 years)

                                    • Time to begin the new year with new coverage.

                                      The 2010's are officially over and we enter the next decade with a super improved Billboard 200. The January 18, 2020 issue "marks the first week the tally includes on-demand video and audio streams from YouTube, as well as officially licensed video content plays from Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal and Vevo." The video streams not only impact the Billboard 200 but also the genre-specific charts such as R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, Country Albums etc.

                                      Essentially, an artist who releases a smash music video could boost the parent album back into the upper tier of the album charts. It's still too early to tell how that will change the marketing aspect of the music industry. Also starting with the January 18, 2020 issue, Billboard is no longer publishing Album Sales charts for genres, soundtracks and catalog titles. It's possible that down the line, Top Album Sales will also meet its demise due to low sales.

                                      • I haven't updated the feats, as there have been such alarming differences in recent times between sales and Billboard 200 ranks for some albums ranking top 10 in sales and not the BB 200.

                                        Perhaps lists of acts with the most No. 1s and top 10s on Top Album Sales (May 25, 1991-present) would be worth compiling.

                                        • Hey HolidayGuy,
                                          How many top 10 Sales have missed the Billboard 200?

                                          Hope all is well with you. Stay safe, my friend.

                                          • This week (May 9, 2020), we see a new low for #1 debut. Dance Gavin Dance comes in at the top with only 17,030 copies sold. [Harry Styles’ “Fine Line” moved a record low 13,000 copies but not in its 1st week].

                                            The new album splashes in at #14 on the Billboard 200, barely missing the top 10. This is the first time in 2020 and 5th time overall that the top seller has missed the top 10 region.

                                            Really not a whole lot to add. Sleepy week in the music world...

                                            • Hey, WS. Sorry for the long delay- these last couple of months have flown by (as with the last dozen or so years lol)

                                              I will go back and reconcile data, though for the May 9 chart, Twiztid, No. 9 on Album Sales, missed the Billboard 200. It was not the first to do so. Also that week, Danzig (No. 6 AS) almost missed it, coming in at No. 192.

                                              EDIT: Looks like just one other album that hit top 10 on Album Sales missed the Billboard 200- for the April 25, 2020, charts, Joe Satriani's Shapeshifting ranked No. 8 on Album Sales and was absent from the BB 200. I'm sure we will be seeing other titles join them in the future.

                                              • Lets see how it long takes before #1 in sales misses it completely. If Dance Gavin Dance made it to #14 with roughly 20,000 units, the sales numbers would be have to be closer to non-existent and there would be no major releases during the week.That reality won’t come all that soon... thankfully.

                                                Expect, however, to see a top seller with under 10k after Christmas week in 2020. We’ve already seen the lowest sales week in Soundscan history (796,000 copies sold) a couple months ago at the start of Covid-19.

                                                • WolfSpear and others- not one, but two top 10s on Top Album Sales are MIA from the June 20 Billboard 200 (Mt. Joy came close to making it three titles, but it just made the cut, at No. 197):

                                                  Dion's Blues With Friends- No. 5
                                                  Now That's What I Call Country, Volume 13- No. 10

                                                  • Thanks for chiming in. Pleasantly surprised to see Dion scoring a top 10 seller.

                                                    I have updated this page through June 20, 2020 and will add include the June 27th results momentarily. This week, Lady Gaga’s Chromatica commands sales for a 3rd consecutive week despite a solo outing the Billboard 200.

                                                    • ^Actually, NCT 127 returns to No. 1 on Top Album Sales this week.

                                                      We have another title that debuts in the top 10 sales and is MIA on the BB 200: Boney James' Solid.

                                                        Guessing the result of a new ticket bundle?

                                                        • The NCT album was reissued in a deluxe edition.

                                                          No sales top 10 debuts miss the Billboard 200 this week; Ray LaMontagne's album, No. 10 in sales, comes in at No. 163.

                                                          • The Chicks score their 4th #1 on Top Album Sales with Gaslighter, their first top seller since 2006's Taking The Long Way. In the process, they established a new record of 14 years between consecutive top-selling studio albums.

                                                            • Also of note this week- another top 10 seller that does not appear on the Billboard 200: Kansas' The Absence Of Presence, which debuts at No. 10 on Album Sales.
