  • Post Black Friday effect before anyone potentially flips out about all the sales drops.

    Taylor still sold fantastically. Wow.

        Is it a typo or is it really Dark Side of the Moon at No. 10?

        I was afraid that Taylor Swift could drop below 200k, relieved that she didn't...

          Pit is not a front loaded artist Timmy.
          All his songs start like a flop and then smash outta nowhere after a period of time.
          Even the sleeper hit album Global warming had a bigger drop than Globalization. Compare:
          38 PITBULL GLOBAL WARMING 18,618 -71% 63,733 82,390
          Time of our lives is taking off in the USA!
          It will keep globalization alive.

          • ^^ No that's not a typo. Dark Side is #10. TER is on a different label.

            • I don't see the album becoming a hit though, not even for his standard. 200-300k should be the most he'll achieve, maybe half a year charting but nothing outstanding like a new peak or something... It might spend a few weeks in the lower part of the chart, but that's already it for Globalization.

              @BadMan125: Really ? The album is never going to die ... The album definitely shows that you can still have longevity these days because, while it is a 70s record, it's selling in a 10s climate and shows that there is still a LOT of interest in that album, the performance of other albums is a sign of personal weakness rather than the weakness of the market.

                  • The dance genre in the USA is not a front loaded seller either.
                    For example:
                    Sorry for Party Rocking debuted at number 12 on the US Billboard 200 with 27,100 copies sold in its first week and went Platinum years later.

                    Plus, if Pit manages to get more hits from this cd, I see him exceeding again.
                    The new rules are benefiting him so much.

                      • Why have HDD compared last week's pure sales chart to this week's sales and streaming chart when calculating percentages? :-? Anyone else notice? I hope the chart will be re-uploaded with these inaccuracies corrected unless there's a specific reason they have done this.

                        Ed 29 on sales and 12 on sales and streaming! Hozier is even more impressive -- 35 vs. 11!

                          TAYLOR’S FIFTH #1 IN SIX WEEKS
                          Swift Stays on Top; Pentatonix Remains Hot on Her Heels; AC/DC Debuts Top 3

                          December 9, 2014

                          No, this is not the chart story you read last week. Taylor Swift’s staying power just happens to be a force to be reckoned with.

                          Big Machine’s Pop Princess and multiple Grammy nominee now goes #1 for the fifth time in its six weeks on the HITS Building Album Sales Chart with 228k (-18%).

                          In case you’re placing bets in what’s possibly the most angelic bidding pool for the largest record of the year come the end of this month, fellow multiple nominee Disney’s Frozen ST (#12, 34k, -43%) is currently at 3.3m YTD, while 1989 is at 2.7m.

                          RCA’s Pentatonix, who recently scored their first Grammy nom, continue to bring a cappella music to the forefront, as That’s Christmas to Me enjoys a second week at #2, duplicating last week's showing of 206k and soaring past Gold status.

                          By the way, the group’s previous holiday set, PTXmas, rockets #31-14 with 31k, up 29%.

                          Meanwhile, rock icons AC/DC bow at #3 with 165k for their new Columbia set, Rock or Bust.

                          And no, you didn’t hit the bong too hard. Pink Floyd’s famed 1973 release, Dark Side of the Moon, is indeed up over 850% with 36k, powered by its listing as a 99 cent album of the week at Google Play. The album happens to make the perfect present for under the tree. It also pairs well with tree.

                          Speaking of things found under the tree, holiday albums continue to sell, sell, sell this week. Warner Bros.’ Idina Menzel leaps #10-4, snagging 62k (+11%), while Reprise’s Michael Buble moves #11-6, raking in another 56k (+10%) and Sparrow’s Michael W. Smith and Friends re-enters the chart at #15 with 29k (+88%).

                          Capitol's Mary J. Blige enjoys a Top 10 chart debut with her 12th studio album. The London Sessions appears at #9 with 49k.

                          When we compare the SPS (Sales Plus Streaming) Chart, we find Taylor widening her lead over Pentatonix considerably, gaining nearly 44k thanks entirely to single sales, as she's not streaming anywhere. Meanwhile, singles and streams power Capitol's Grammy magnet Sam Smith into the Top 5 in SPS (he's #8 on the album chart), while SYCO/Columbia's One Direction moves #5-4. But the biggest beneficiary of an SPS tally is Columbia's Best Song nominee Hozier, who rides huge single sales and streams to a 23k gain and the #11 spot on the new chart (he's #35 on the album countdown).

                          Also making big gains thanks to singles and streams are Grammy nominees Meghan Trainor (+19k), Ed Sheeran (+18k), Beyoncé (+15k) and Ariana Grande (+14k), among others.

                            I don't think they compared it (unless I miss something? lol), this is the fallout from Black Friday. I think they're struggling to get used to it as well lmao

                                  Depeche Mode's current album opened with 52k in the US, yet 142k in Germany, I'd say that it's comparable.

                                    released, he should keep charting for a wee while yet.

                                        They have. Last week's streaming and sales chart can be viewed towards the end of this page: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=102136&start=2425

                                        The percentage differences don't add up -- they've used last week's sales chart instead.

                                            He may not be constant positionwise but he is saleswise. Not sure whether that's a good thing though since sales are supposed to increase heavily in December, not stay constant.

                                            • Garth's album barely decreased at all in the week after Black Friday. Compare that to the vast majority of non-Christmas albums on the charts. He's showing great stability.

                                                Stability is not enough in the holiday season when you're supposed to increase heavily from week to week. Stability during that period (at least saleswise) is comparable to steady sales drops in the rest of the year.
                                                Je n'ai qu'une philosophie: Être acceptée comme je suis. Malgré tout ce qu'on me dit, je reste le poing levé.

                                                • But it's the week after Black Friday. This week is an exception. Nearly all albums that aren't holiday albums or feature one currently big hit single dropped in sales.
