  • 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.


                  The page layout is the same as the first page:

                  Calendar Year
                  Chart Date
                  #1 Top Albums Sales: Title - Artist (Rounded Sales Numbers) [Rank on Opposing Chart]
                  #1 Billboard 200: Title - Artist (Rounded Sales + TEA/SEA) [Rank on Opposing Chart]

                  • 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.
