There's another blip in the Billboard database, this time involving Canadian Digital Sales chart.
https://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-ca ... 1998-11-18

It goes back to 1996, which is clearly, before the digital sales period began. It's the Canadian Physical Singles charts.

@january03
I have seen your original post. There is no need for bumping after a mere 24 hours have passed.
Thank you very much for keeping double-posting and bumping to an absolute minimum.

Interesting.

First-Week Sales Of Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' Vary Widely, Depending Who You Ask
https://www.npr.org/sections/therecord/ ... ho-you-ask
However, when it comes to the exact number of albums sold, by any metric, there's a significant discrepancy between what the companies who do the counting have said. Nielsen Music, which collects and compiles the sales data used to tabulate Billboard's charts, last night reported Reputation as having sold 1.216 million copies in the U.S. in its first week. BuzzAngle, a competitor to Nielsen launched in 2015, reports the album as having shifted 1.29 million copies in the same period.

Both companies' figures only represent U.S. sales — but the difference between their figures is about 74,000 units. (For perspective, there are albums that have reached No. 1 with less than that, total.) In a phone call with NPR Music this morning, BuzzAngle CEO Jim Lidestri said the reason for these mismatched results is the differing report schedules that each company uses.

"Traditionally, [Nielsen] didn't get everything lined up to the week — the Target file ending on a Sunday or Amazon ending on a Wednesday, for example," Lidestri says. "So even though they were reporting a full week, it wasn't a full week from each of those retailers." These overlaps, he suggests, were the cause of Reputation's "missing" 74,000 units, which he expects to be reflect in next week's Billboard charts. BuzzAngle receives sales reports daily, he says.

Reached for comment, Swift's label, Big Machine Records, says its internal sales figures are "in line with BuzzAngle's findings." Meanwhile, a representative for Billboard writes that it is "confident in the data that Nielsen provides that informs our weekly charts, as we have been for over 25 years," though a request for clarification on the overlap suggested by Lidestri wasn't returned at press time.
