U2 Tops the American Albums Chart (Plus Four Others); Van Morrison and Neil Young Both Debut Outside Top 100
http://www.vintagevinylnews.com/2017/12 ... -four.html

U2 has officially received the eighth number 1 album of their career in the U.S. as Songs of Experience tops the Billboard 200.

Songs of Experience is doing considerably better than their last album, Songs of Innocence, which only made it to 9 and was the band's only studio album to not make the top 3 since 1984's The Unforgettable Fire. The sales of Innocence was hurt by the controversial Apple "giveaway" program.

U2 also tops Billboard's Artist 100 while Songs of Experience is number 1 on Album Sales, Tastemakers, Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts.

The Rolling Stones start at 47 with the archive live album On Air while Van Morrison has his lowest charting album in 17 years and fourth lowest of his career. Versatile comes out just three months after his last release, Roll With the Punches, and only is able to get to 119. His last studio album to chart that low was 2000's You Win Again with Linda Gail Lewis and only Blowin' Your Mind (1967 / #182) and Astral Weeks (1968 / Did not chart) did worse. Versatile is Morrison's 38th studio album and is at number 1 on the Jazz Albums.

Then there is Neil Young, whose second album with the group Promise of the Real, The Visitor, debuts at 167. That is the lowest charting of the 37 studio albums that Young has put on the charts. Only his solo debut, 1969's Neil Young, did worse as it never made the Billboard 200.

Two first-time-charting Christmas albums round out the newly charting albums by veteran artists. The Dean Martin Christmas Album starts at 186 while The Best of the Jackson 5: 20th Century Masters: The Christmas Collection opens at 194.

Of last week's debuts, the Eagles' deluxe Hotel California dropped 44 to 110 and Elvis Presley's Elvis Christmas With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra fell 73 to 139. Two premiers, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' Who Built the Moon (#48 debut last week) and Bjork's Utopia (#75) both fell out of the top 200.

The top twenty albums this week by veteran artists who have been recording twenty years or more (Billboard 200 position in parenthesis).
Songs of Experience - U2 (1)
Christmas - Michael Buble (8)
The Anthology: Part 1, The First Five Years - Garth Brooks (10)
Merry Christmas - Mariah Carey (20)
You Make It Feel Like Christmas - Gwen Stefani (27)

The Bluegrass Albums is led by Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Raiders' The Long Awaited Album and Kid's and Soundtrack Albums by Vince Guaraldi's A Charlie Brown Christmas.

For Singles, Sia is at the top of the Adult Contemporary chart with Santa's Coming For Us while Brenda Lee leads the Country Streaming Songs with Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree. Beck is at number 1 on Alternative Songs and the Foo Fighters top Mainstream Rock with The Sky is a Neighborhood.

Wisin's 'Victory' debuts at No. 2 on Top Latin Albums Chart
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... bums-chart
12/13/2017 by Pamela Bustios

Regional Mexican group Alta Consigna re-enters Top Latin Albums & Shakira scores 13th No. 1 on Latin Airplay.

Puerto Rican reggaeton rapper Wisin debuts at No. 2 on the Top Latin Albums chart (dated Dec. 23) as his fourth studio album Victory opens with 8,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Dec. 7, according to Nielsen Music. Out of that sum, 4,000 were in traditional album sales -- his second-largest sales week ever. Only the arrival of his 2014 set, El Regreso Del Sobreviviente, logged a bigger week: 7,000 sold, when it debuted and peaked at No. 3.

The new album -- released via Sony Music Latin -- is Wisin’s fourth solo effort to chart and third straight set to reach the top three. It follows Los Vaqueros: La Trilogia (No. 1 for two weeks in 2015) and El Regreso Del Sobreviviente. In 2004, he earned his first solo entry, El Sobreviviente, peaking at No. 20.

Wisin is also of course one-half of the duo Wisin & Yandel, which has notched 13 entries on Top Latin Albums, including eight top 10s (five of which were No. 1).

Victory was preceded by the single “Escapate Conmigo,” featuring Ozuna, which hit No. 3 on the Hot Latin Songs chart in July. The single also spent a week at No. 1 on the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart in September.

Elsewhere, regional Mexican group Alta Consigna re-enters the Top Latin Albums chart at No. 6 with No Te Pido Mucho (3,000 units; up 894 percent, with 2,000 in sales; up from a negligible figure in the previous week). The set, initially released through Rancho Humilde Entertainment back in January, returns to the list following its reissue through Sony Music Latin. The latter picked up the act and album in August. The set spent three weeks on the list in January and February, debuting and peaking at No. 5.

No Te Pido Mucho also re-enters Regional Mexican Albums at No. 1 (Alta Consigna’s first leader), surpassing its original peak of No. 3 in January. The act also notched a No. 10-peaking set in 2017 with Culpable Tu.

Lastly, Shakira picks up her 13th No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart with “Perro Fiel,” featuring Nicky Jam, as the song jumps 2-1 (15.5 million in audience in the week ending Dec. 10, up 1 percent).

Shakira continues to have the most No. 1s among women in the 23-year history of the chart. In addition, among all acts, she is now tied with Romeo Santos for the third-most No. 1s overall. They both trail Enrique Iglesias (with 29) and Ricky Martin (16).

Concurrently, “Perro Fiel” also tops the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart, after being stuck in the runner-up slot for four straight weeks. It’s Shakira’s second leader on the tally, following 2016’s “Chantaje,” featuring Maluma, which ruled for three weeks.

Sofi Tukker's 'Best Friend' Rules Top Commercials Chart for November
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... ials-chart
12/13/2017 by Xander Zellner

Plus, N.E.R.D & Rihanna’s "Lemon" opens at No. 2 and Daryl Hall & John Oates debut with a classic.

Sofi Tukker’s “Best Friend,” featuring NERVO, The Knocks and Alisa Ueno, tops Billboard & Clio’s Top TV Commercials chart, powered by Shazam, for November, thanks to the song’s appearance in Apple iPhone X’s “It’s Here” ad.

Using tagging data from Shazam, as well as sales and streaming information tracked by Nielsen Music, Billboard partners with Clio Music each month to present a chart ranking the top songs in commercials. Rankings exclude any song that has recently charted within the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 or top 10 on a genre chart.

"Best Friend," which debuted on Top TV Commercials last month at No. 7, leads all songs in November with 128,000 Shazam tags, 25,000 downloads sold and 2.6 million streams, according to Nielsen Music. “Best Friend” concurrently reaches a new peak on the current Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (dated Dec. 23) at No. 10, and the Alternative Songs chart at No. 23.

The song is the first No. 1 for all four acts, and the fifth No. 1 for an Apple commercial, dating back to the chart’s inception in January 2016. Honda is the only other company to match Apple’s total, with five No. 1s.

Just below Tukker on the Top TV Commercials chart, N.E.R.D. and Rihanna’s “Lemon” opens at No. 2 after its appearance in Beats Studio3’s “Above the Noise” commercial.

The track earned N.E.R.D. its first entry on the Hot 100 in November, and currently stands at a new peak at No. 60 (chart dated Dec. 23). The song concurrently earned the trio its second entry on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, reaching No. 26.

The song logged 19,000 Shazam tags, 45,000 downloads and 17.1 million U.S. streams, according to Nielsen Music.

The song is Rihanna’s second appearance on Top TV Commercials, following Kanye West’s “All of the Lights” earlier this year, on which she was featured.

Finally, Daryl Hall & John Oates’ classic hit “You Make My Dreams” opens at No. 7 following its appearance in Applebees’ “Dreams Come True” ad.

Thanks to the spot in the commercial, the song tallied 15,000 Shazam tags, 5,000 downloads and 3.6 million U.S. streams in November.

The song reached No. 5 on the Hot 100 chart dated July 4, 1981 and No. 35 on the Mainstream Rock chart.

Metal By Numbers 12/13: December’s destructive debuts
© Metal Insider: Posted by Matt Brown on December 13, 2017
Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week

This week’s list of debuts is a bit more robust compared to last week, not least of all because it features some long-awaited heavy hitters like The Faceless and Morbid Angel, the latter of which has been receiving sweeping praise. After all, who doesn’t love a good return to form album?

ImageImageImage

This is the third album and final part of a trilogy the band began back in 2015. This one had the lowest debut compared out of the three.

Billboard 200/Catalog Albums Chart Update – December 23, 2017

CHRISTMAS CRAZE
Pentatonix’ A Pentatonix Christmas reached a milestone on December 16 not previously reached by a Christmas album when it moved up to #2 on the BB200 behind Taylor Swift’s Reputation. To date, only Prince’s The Very Best Of Prince (2016) and Michael Jackson’s Number Ones (2009 – Comprehensive chart) have reached #1 as Catalog albums… A Pentatonix Christmas is the sixth Christmas album to reach the overall top 10 as a Catalog album. Three of the six are Pentatonix albums… It’s been hard to follow Billboard’s logic, or lack thereof, for 2016 releases on the charts this year. The few albums that performed well enough to chart, did appear on the Catalog Sales and BB200 charts, but were held off of the Catalog chart until the December 16 chart. A Pentatonix Christmas was an exception, appearing on the Catalog chart from November 18 through December 2. But that album was not on the November 11 chart, even though it was in the BB200 top 40, and abruptly left the Catalog chart again on December 9. That reversal gave Michael Buble’s Christmas its 23rd week at #1 and first since January 10, 2015. A Pentatonix Christmas has been #1 for the last two weeks and four altogether… There is still a problem with Billboard’s listing, as Reba McEntire’s My Kind Of Christmas, a 2016 release that didn’t reach the BB200 that year, is listed on the Catalog Sales and BB200 chart, and is not on the Catalog chart although it should be top 10 there.

CHRISTMAS ALBUMS TO REACH THE BILLBOARD 200/COMPREHENSIVE TOP 10 AS CATALOG ALBUMS
#2: Pentatonix, A Pentatonix Christmas (2017-18 season)
#3: Michael Buble, Christmas (2012-13 season; reached top 10 for 6 straight seasons through 2017-18)
#3: Pentatonix, That’s Christmas To Me (2015-16 season; also top 10 in 2016-17)
#4: Josh Groban, Noel (2008-09 season)
#7: Penatatonix, PTXmas (EP) (2013-14 season)
#10: Il Divo, The Christmas Collection (2006-07 season)

END OF THE LINE FOR “21”
It had to happen sooner or later. Adele’s 21 left the Catalog chart on December 9 after a run of 153 straight weeks. It had missed one week at the end of 2014 but otherwise had been on the Catalog chart for 206 out of 207 qualifying weeks through December 2. Then, on December 16 it was absent from the Billboard 200 for the first time since its March 2011 release, an incredible run of 353 straight weeks. That’s not the longest ever, in case you were wondering: Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon re-entered the chart in late 1976 and remained on the chart through the spring of 1988, a 593-week run and the longest of which I am aware. DSOTM also still has the record for longest top-200 run (including Comprehensive weeks) by a Catalog album, at 225 straight weeks from late 2003 through the spring of 2008. The run for 21 of 208 weeks (as a Catalog album) is the longest for the Billboard 200 proper… 21 reappeared on the December 23 chart, along with Journey’s Greatest Hits, which also left the chart on December 16 after a long run.

MIG’S MILESTONES
Dec 2: Overlooked in the last report was the fact that Bob Marley & The Wailers’ Legend and Metallica’s …And Justice For All both fell off the Catalog Sales chart for the first time in 2017 on December 2, each after a run of 47 straight weeks.
Dec 9: Queen’s Greatest Hits I II & III: The Platinum Collection gains its 100th week on the BB200 as a Catalog album, a week after reaching its 100th overall BB200 week. Yes, it had just one week at #48 in its original BB200 run in 2002… Billy Joel’s The Essential Billy Joel reaches its 100th week overall on the BB200, with 84 of those weeks being while the album was in catalog status… Imagine Dragons’ Night Visions reaches 100 weeks on the Catalog chart, the 161st album to reach that milestone… Metallica’s Master Of Puppets, still in the top 10 of this week’s Catalog Sales chart, reaches the 600-week milestone on that chart, becoming only the 11th album (and third Metallica album) to reach that pinnacle.
Dec 16: In addition to Adele’s 21, Journey’s Greatest Hits fell out of the BB200 after a run of 156 weeks. That’s still short of the longest top 200 run for the album of 183 weeks, from June 2007 through December 2010, bridging the old Comprehensive chart and the BB200… Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman leaves the BB200 after a 79-week run… Bob Marley & The Wailers’ Legend, Journey’s Greatest Hits, and Bruno Mars’ Doo-Wops & Hooligans all leave the Catalog chart. Each of those albums returned to the chart in the first week of 2017, so a 49-week run comes to an end for each one. This leaves Metallica’s Metallica as the only album to chart the entire year to date on the Catalog chart. It’s working on a 103-week run going back to the beginning of 2016… Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Chronicle leaves the Catalog Sales chart after a 47-week run going back to the third week of 2017. It remains on the Catalog chart, where it is this week’s longest running entry.
Dec 23:Johnny Cash’s The Legend Of Johnny Cash drops from the Catalog Sales chart after a 92 week run. Three albums remain on the chart that have been all for all of 2017: Metallica’s Metallica (104 weeks total), Guardians Of The Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 (77 weeks total), and Garth Brooks’ The Ultimate Hits (61 weeks total)… Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Chronicle and 2Pac’s Greatest Hits fall off the Catalog chart after runs of 48 and 45 weeks, respectively. This leaves seven albums that have charted every week since the inclusion of equivalent sales data in the Catalog chart computations: Metallica’s Metallica (104 weeks), Ed Sheeran’s x and Sam Hunt’s Montevallo (both 50 weeks), Drake’s Take Care and Nothing Was The Same, Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city, Imagine Dragons’ Night Visions (all 46 weeks)… The top 13 albums on the Catalog chart and top 11 on the Catalog Sales chart are Christmas selections, marking the first time this Christmas season on both charts that there has been an all-Christmas top 10. It’s the first all-Christmas top 10 on the Catalog chart since December 27, 2014. A record was set on the December 29, 1994 chart when the top 30 were all Christmas albums.

NEW ON THE CHARTS
Dec 9: Chance The Rapper’s Coloring Book makes the transition to Catalog status on the BB200 and Catalog album charts… Tame Impala’s Currents, a 2015 release, returns to the BB200 and also debuts on the Catalog and Catalog Sales charts… Returning to the BB200 for the first time since moving to Catalog status (on the Sales chart) is Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s The Ghosts Of Christmas Eve (#149)… Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman makes the transition to Catalog status while clinging to #200 on the BB200 chart… Bowing on the Catalog Sales chart is Straight No Chaser’s I’ll Have Another… Christmas Album (#39), their fourth catalog-charting Christmas collection.
Dec 16: With this week, Billboard began properly reporting Lauren Daigle’s Behold: A Christmas Collection (#8) and Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s The Ghosts Of Christmas Eve (#16) on the Catalog chart; it would have been the 4th and 2nd week on the chart, respectively, for these albums if they had appeared there when first returning to the BB200… Rihanna’s ANTI is the latest long-charting album to transition to Catalog status, doing so in its 97th week at #27 (#127 BB200)… Andy Williams’ Classic Christmas Album briefly charted in 2013-14, but only makes its Catalog debut this year (#31) and also returns to the BB200 at #133… Two more albums, both Christmas titles, make their first BB200 appearance in Catalog status. Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood’s Christmas Together (#198) was released last year and reached #7. Perry Como’s The Classic Christmas Album (#196) was released in 2014 but makes its first BB200 appearance. It’s also the first appearance for the late Mr. Como (d. 2001) on the BB200 since Just Out Of Reach in 1976!... Entering the Catalog Sales chart is Brett Eldredge’s Glow (#32), a 2016 Christmas release from the country artist.
Dec 23: Kidz Bop Kids’ Kidz Bop Christmas (2016) and Brett Eldredge’s Glow, both previous entrants on the Catalog Sales chart, make their first entry on the BB200… Three Christmas albums appear on the BB200 in Catalog status, in each case making their first ever appearance on the chart: The Dean Martin Christmas Album (#186), The Best Of The Jackson 5: 20CMTCC (#194) and Brenda Lee’s Jingle Bell Rock (#197). The albums were released in 1966, 2003 and 1993, respectively. (Billboard did not include Christmas albums on the main tally in 1966, but Dino’s album did top a separate Christmas albums chart that year.)… Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood’s Christmas Together enters the Catalog chart this week (#18). It made its first entry on Catalog Sales, BB200 and Catalog chart all in different weeks… An album from Canadian rock band Rush (A Farewell To Kings, #18) and two from Chicago band Wilco (Being There, #25; A.M., #44) enter the Catalog Sales chart for the first time. These are joined by one Christmas album, Leslie Odom, Jr.’s Simply Christmas (#47). Odom won a Tony award for his work as Aaron Burr in Broadway’s Hamilton: An American Musical.

WANDERING STARS – Reserved for long-absent albums returning to the charts:
Dec 9: ‘N Sync’s Home For Christmas (released in 1998) returns to the Catalog Sales chart for the first time since 2015… Bing Crosby’s 20th Century Masters: The Christmas Collection returns to the BB200 for the first time in 2017.
Dec 16: Alan Jackson’s Let It Be Christmas makes its first appearance in the top 200 albums since late 2006 (when it was on the Comprehensive album chart), and also returns to the Catalog chart for the first time since that year… Christmas With The Rat Pack, featuring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Sammy Davis Jr., returns to the Catalog Sales chart for the first time since 2014… Eagles’ Hotel California returns to the BB200 and both Catalog charts for the first time in 2017, reaching a new high mark of #6 on the Catalog Sales chart and matching its high mark of #7 on Catalog. It also reaches a new high of #44 in its third week on the BB200 as a Catalog album.
Dec 23: Casting Crowns’ Peace On Earth makes its first BB200 appearance of 2017. It has reached the chart as a Catalog album every year since 2009… Making their first 2017 appearances on the Catalog chart are The Carpenters’ Christmas Portrait, ‘N Sync’s Home For Christmas, and The Piano Guys’ A Family Christmas. The Carpenters’ album also returns to the Catalog Sales chart for the first time this year.

CATALOG NOTES – From the Catalog and Catalog Sales charts – Parenthetical numbers are overall weeks in the top 10 followed by 2017 weeks in the top 10:
Dec 9: On the Catalog chart: Vince Guaraldi Trio’s A Charlie Brown Christmas (Soundtrack) (67/3) and Mariah Carey’s Merry Christmas (52/2) return to the top 10 at #9 and #6, respectively. These are also the two longest-running Christmas albums on the Catalog chart, at 163 and 154 weeks, respectively… A Charlie Brown Christmas has 67 total top 10 weeks, good for second place among Christmas albums, and Merry Christmas jumps into a third-place tie with Mannheim Steamroller’s A Fresh Aire Christmas and Kenny G’s Miracles: The Holiday Album at 52 weeks (becoming the fifth Christmas album to spend an aggregate year in the top 10). The front runner is still Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Christmas Eve And Other Stories at 73 weeks, but it hasn’t had a week in the top 10 since the first week of January 2013… Pentatonix’ A Pentatonix Christmas falls off the chart from #1 resulting from Billboard’s inconsistent handling of first-time Christmas albums this year.
On the Catalog Sales chart: The only returning album to the top 10 this week is Guardians Of The Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 at #9 (47/45). By returning it breaks a tie with Metallica’s Metallica for most weeks in the top 10 during 2017 (45 weeks).
Dec 16: On the Catalog chart: Five entries in the top 10 are led by Pentatonix’ A Pentatonix Christmas (left off the chart by Billboard last week even though it was #5 BB200). It gets its 4th week in the top 10, all this year… Lauren Daigle’s Behold: A Christmas Collection debuts on the chart at #8... Nat “King” Cole’s The Christmas Song leaps to #10, getting its 28th overall week in the top 10. It reached the top 10 in each of the chart’s first seven Christmas seasons, but was last seen in the top 10 almost 20 years ago on January 3, 1998… Eagles’ Hotel California reaches the top 10 for the first time in 2017 (#7) and 13th week overall. It was last in the top 10 on November 17, 2007, and matches its #7 peak position set on November 19, 1994… The other re-entry is Elvis Presley’s It’s Christmas Time, which was top 10 for one week earlier in 2017 and spends its 43rd week in the top 10… This week’s action puts all Christmas albums in the top 10 except for Hotel California, thus bringing an end to any lengthy top 10 runs. The best run as of last week was Drake’s Take Care at 19 weeks; it falls to #13.
On the Catalog Sales chart: Eagles’ Hotel California returns to the top 10 (#6) for the 13th week and sets a new high position while doing so. It was last seen in the top 10 in November 2007...

I'm sure this has happened in the old days but does anybody know if this has ever happened since Billboard implemented the "20 weeks maximum rule below #50?"

Thanks for the info. Interesting that all debuted at #1 except Look What You Made Me Do. BTW, I confirmed that the 20 week Top 50 rule goes back to at least 1997,

Billboard 200 Chart Moves: 'Charlie Brown Christmas' Soundtrack Back in Top 40
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... soundtrack
12/15/2017 by Keith Caulfield

Plus: Brenda Lee returns to the chart for the first time since 1969.
On the latest Billboard 200 albums chart (dated Dec. 23), U2 notched its eighth No. 1 album with the debut of Songs of Experience. It bowed with 186,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Dec. 7, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 180,000 were driven by traditional album sales. Two more albums debuted in the top 10: Chris Stapleton’s From A Room: Volume 2 (at No. 2) and Miguel’s War & Leisure (No. 9).

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the week’s most popular albums based on their overall consumption. That overall unit figure combines pure album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

Now, let’s take a closer look at some of the action on the latest Billboard 200 chart:

— Vince Guaraldi Trio, A Charlie Brown Christmas (Soundtrack) – No. 32 — The classic animated TV special’s soundtrack returns to the top 40 for the third straight holiday season, as it steps 41-32 with 18,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Dec. 8 (up 17 percent), according to Nielsen Music, of which 10,000 were in traditional album sales (up 30 percent). The set, which was originally released in 1965, is the seventh-biggest-selling Christmas album of the Nielsen era (1991-present), with 3.7 million copies sold.

— The Rolling Stones, On Air – No. 47 — The Rolling Stones notch their 54th charting set on the Billboard 200 with the arrival of the archival set On Air (14,000 units; nearly all from traditional album sales). The band has charted at least one new album on the list every year from 2012 to the present.

— Various Artists, ONXRT: Live From the Archives, Vol. 19 – No. 129 — The long-running charity compilation album series visits the list again, as its 19th volume starts at No. 129 with 8,000 units (all from pure album sales). The latest title in the series, compiled and presented by WXRT Chicago, was released exclusively in Target stores in the Chicago area. Proceeds from the album -- which boasts live recordings for the station from Sting, Portugal. The Man, and others -- benefit the Alliance for the Great Lakes and World Bicycle Relief. It’s the seventh charting title in a row for the Live From the Archives series.

— Dean Martin, The Dean Martin Christmas Album – No. 186 — Martin’s 1966 holiday set, The Dean Martin Christmas Album, finally debuts on the chart, bowing at No. 186. From 1963 through 1973, holiday albums were not eligible to chart on the Billboard 200. Instead, they charted on the seasonal Holiday Albums chart. Martin’s album topped the Holiday Albums list for one week on the chart dated Dec. 3, 1966.

— Brenda Lee, Jingle Bell Rock - No. 197 — Lee is back on the list for the first time since 1969’s Johnny One Time, as her 1993 Jingle Bell Rock album -- powered by streams of her classic “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” -- debuts on the list at No. 197.

'The Voice' Contestant Brooke Simpson Brings 'Amazing Grace' Back to No. 1 on Hot Christian Songs Chart
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... ce-back-to
12/14/2017 by Jim Asker

Her cover is the eighth No. 1 by a hopeful from the show.
Brooke Simpson, competing for Miley Cyrus' team on season 13 of NBC's The Voice, sang hymn "Amazing Grace" on the show's Dec. 3 episode, and the recording subsequently launches atop Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart (dated Dec. 23).

The hymn starts with 25,000 downloads sold in the week ending Dec. 7, according to Nielsen Music.

North Carolina native Simpson reigns with her first Billboard chart entry, which marks The Voice's eighth No. 1 on Hot Christian Songs, all of which have debuted at the summit. It's the first since Christian Cuevas' version of Israel & New Breed's "To Worship You I Live (Away)," which opened atop the chart dated Dec. 24, 2016.

The first and fourth times that competitors on The Voice topped Hot Christian Songs were also with "Amazing Grace," by Meghan Linsey (May 23, 2015) and Braiden Sunshine (Dec. 26, 2015). The other such acts and their No. 1s: Jordan Smith ("Great Is Thy Faithfulness," "Hallelujah," "Mary Did You Know") and Sundance Head ("Me and Jesus").

On Gospel Airplay, R&B/hip-hop-influenced Charles Jenkins & Fellowship Chicago's "Grace" (featuring Le'Andria Johnson) rises 2-1. Jenkins, the pastor of the Fellowship Baptist Church in Chicago, posts his third No. 1, following "# War," which ruled for five weeks in 2015, and the 16-week 2012 leader "Awesome."

Johnson achieves her first Gospel Airplay No. 1.

Miguel's 'War and Leisure' Debuts at No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... bum-charts
12/14/2017 by Trevor Anderson

Plus, G-Eazy's on the rise with two different songs, while "Gummo" & NF hit the top 10 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

Miguel collects his second No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart (dated Dec. 23) as War and Leisure begins with 40,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Dec. 7, according to Nielsen Music. The R&B singer previously reigned with the one-week leader Kaleidoscope Dream in 2012.

As War breaks out, two of the album’s tracks make headway on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs: lead single “Sky Walker” (featuring Travis Scott) zooms 23-16, while “Come Through and Chill” (featuring J. Cole and Salaam Remi) debuts at No. 44. The latter entry brings the singer to 20 charted hits since his debut, “All I Want Is You” started at No. 98 in July 2010.

G-Eazy Gains: Rapper G-Eazy scores several notable moves on the R&B/hip-hop songs charts, beginning with a new No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay as his “No Limit” (featuring A$AP Rocky and Cardi B) lifts 2-1. The collaboration rises 6 percent to 30 million in format audience for the week ending Dec. 10, according to Nielsen Music.

“Limit” gives G-Eazy his first leader on the radio-based ranking and marks both A$AP Rocky and Cardi B’s second. The former previously ruled with “F**kin’ Problems” (featuring Drake, 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar) for one week in 2013, while the latter’s “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” completed a 10-week domination three weeks ago.

The radio gain helps the trio step one rung to a new No. 3 peak on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. “Limit” lifts to 17,000 downloads for the week, up 7 percent, despite a 2-4 drop on R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales. The song is steady at No. 5 on R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs but enjoys a 2 percent weekly bump to 22.4 million U.S. streams.

“Limit” also rules the Rhythmic Songs airplay list for a second frame.

But that’s not all! G-Eazy has a second triumph this week as his collaboration with Halsey, “Him & I” begins at No. 9 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. The pair open at No. 2 on R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales (44,000 sold) and No. 17 on R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs (13.4 million streams).

‘Gummo’ Keeps Growing: Also on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, rapper 6ix9ine explodes 22-5 with “Gummo” in the wake of huge streaming gains. The tune rockets 15-3 on R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs, pulling 27.9 million plays for the week, up a scorching 110 percent.

6ix9ine turns streaming sums into chart gold a second time this week as new release “Kooda” debuts at No. 23 on R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs (12.3 million) and No. 28 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

NF Hits Top 10: Plus, rapper NF scores his first top 10 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs as “Let You Down” climbs 12-10. The artist, who previously charted several hit songs and albums on Billboard’s Christian genre charts, is the latest example of acts who successfully crossed from the Christian and gospel charts to wider mainstream appeal with a top 10 hit on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. Among them, CeCe Winans, whose “Count on Me” duet with Whitney Houston reached No. 7 in 1996 and Yolanda Adams, who took “Open My Heart” to No. 10 in 1998.

Billboard Dance Chart Upstarts: Rooverb, Alan Crown & Alicia Madison, 3LAU & Sunset Neon
https://www.billboard.com/articles/news ... dison-3lau
12/14/2017 by Gordon Murray

ach week, Billboard Dance looks at songs & albums rising on Billboard's dance charts.
Rooverb, Alan Crown & Alicia Madison, "Insanity"

Argentinian DJ/producer Rooverb, Guatemalan DJ/producer Alan Crown and New York City-based singer Alicia Madison debut at No. 40 on Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated Dec. 23) with "Insanity," the first chart hit for each artist. "Insanity" takes the entirety of its radio play from three core-dance outlets: SiriusXM's BPM, Music Choice's Dance/EDM channel and WFLZ-HD Tampa, Florida (an iHeartRadio Evolution affiliate).

Madison tells Billboard, "'Insanity' was written about how ignored and crazy I felt in this particular relationship with someone who knowingly hurt me over and over, yet always knew how to find their way back into my heart. I wrote 'Insanity' a while ago for a producer that didn't want to pursue releasing the record. My management and I knew we had a good topline and decided to shelve the song until we found a producer who could build the perfect track around it. We sent my vocal over to Rooverb and Alan Crown and they completely nailed it. I am so happy to see the amazing reaction of this record. I guess the old saying is true ... sometimes good things take time."

3LAU featuring Luna Aura, "Walk Away"

Las Vegas-based DJ/producer 3LAU (real name: Justin Blau) scores his second appearance and highest peak on Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales with "Walk Away," featuring Luna Aura (No. 20; 1,000 sold in the weke ending Dec. 7, according to Nielsen Music). 3LAU last hit the list in April 2014 with "How You Love Me" (featuring Bright Lights), which debuted and peaked at No. 21. The track is also the first Billboard chart hit for Phoenix-bred singer-songwriter Aura.

Sunset Neon, Starlight

Sunset Neon notches its inaugural Billboard chart appearance, starting at No. 13 on Dance/Electronic Album Sales with Starlight. The act serves as an alias for Blue Stahli, aka Los Angeles-based electronic/rock producer Bret Autrey. The set from Sunset Neon, self-described on Twitter as making "'80s VHS music and glitchy retro nostalgia pop," includes a cover of Prince and the Revolution's 1986 No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 smash "Kiss."

Kesha & Camila Cabello Notch New No. 1s on Dance/Electronic Charts
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... nic-charts
12/14/2017 by Gordon Murray

Plus, moves for Dua Lipa, Post Malone, Sofi Tukker & more.

Kesha cruises to her third No. 1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated Dec. 23) with "Woman," featuring The Dap-Kings Horns, who earn their first.

Kesha collects her second No. 1 as a lead act, following "Your Love Is My Drug" in August 2010. Among her five top 10s is her other No. 1, Pitbull's "Timber," on which she's featured, in January 2014.

"Woman" was remixed by Dave Aude, Rare Candy and Tobtok, among others.

'HAVANA' HITS No. 1: Camila Cabello climbs 2-1 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay with "Havana," featuring Young Thug, marking each act's first No. 1 on the survey.

As a soloist, Cabello had a hit a previous No. 3 high on Dance/Mix Show Airplay with "Bad Things," with Machine Gun Kelly, in February. As a member of Fifth Harmony, which she left nearly a year ago, she hit a No. 5 best with the group's "Worth It," featuring Kid Ink, in 2015.

Also on the chart, two artists earn their second top 10 each: Dua Lipa leaps 11-7 with "New Rules" and Post Malone surges 22-10 with "Rockstar," featuring 21 Savage (who tallies his first).

A NEW 'BEST': Sofi Tukker traipses 12-10 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with "Best Friend," featuring NERVO, The Knocks and Alisa Ueno. The first top 10 for all four acts, the track is benefiting from its synch in an Apple iPhone X commercial, as well as new remixes. It earned 2.4 million U.S. streams, up 232 percent, and sold 6,000 downloads, up 31 percent, in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music.

BASSNECTOR IS BACK: On Top Dance/Electronic Albums, Bassnectar bounds in at No. 8 with Reflective, Part 2, the follow-up EP to Reflective Part 1, which debuted at No. 5 in July. The new set starts with 3,000 equivalent album units; 2,000 stem from traditional sales, good for a No. 1 entrance on Dance/Electronic Album Sales.

Anderson East Earns First Adult Alternative Songs No. 1 With 'All on My Mind'
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... number-one
12/14/2017 by Kevin Rutherford

East is the sixth artist to notch a first No. 1 on the airplay tally in 2017.
Anderson East tops Billboard's Adult Alternative Songs radio airplay chart (dated Dec. 23) with "All on My Mind" (3-1), his first leader on the list.

The track is East's first No. 1 on any Billboard chart, besting the No. 2 peak of his album Delilah on Heatseekers Albums (Jan. 23, 2016). "Mind" already became the 30-year-old Alabama native's best-charting song, following the No. 18 peak of his debut Adult Alternative Songs hit "Satisfy Me" (Sept. 26, 2015).

East is the sixth act to notch a first Adult Alternative Songs No. 1 in 2017, following Mondo Cozmo, Rag'n'Bone Man, Portugal. The Man, Dan Auerbach and The National. That tally beats 2016's six and marks the highest total since 2014, when eight acts reached the top of the chart for the first time.

Concurrently, "Mind" reaches a new peak on the all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart, rising 33-31 with 2 million audience impressions (up 1 percent), according to Nielsen Music. It's East's first song to reach the ranking.

Encore, East's fourth studio album and second with a major label (Atlantic), is due Jan. 12.

BTS Hits Social 50 Chart Milestone, Johnny Hallyday Debuts
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... day-debuts
12/14/2017 by Kevin Rutherford

The K-pop boy band spends its 52nd week atop the ranking.

Late French rock 'n' roll legend Johnny Hallyday makes his Billboard chart debut, bowing at No. 11 on the Social 50 chart dated Dec. 23 following his Dec. 6 death.

The Social 50 is powered by data tracked by music analytics company Next Big Sound and ranks the most popular artists on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Wikipedia and Tumblr. The chart's methodology blends weekly additions of friends/fans/followers along with artist page views and engagement.

The chart’s latest tracking week ended Dec. 7, and BTS is No. 1 for a 52nd nonconsecutive week, and the 22nd week in a row. Since debuting on the list dated Oct. 29, 2016, BTS has never ranked below No. 2. That sustained strong performance resulted in the act being named the year-end top Social 50 artist.

Meanwhile, Hallyday, who mostly recorded in French during a career that spanned over a half-century but also released occasional English-language albums (though he never earned crossover success in the U.S.), debuts at No. 11 after he received 898,000 Wikipedia views in the Dec. 1-7 tracking week and was mentioned 40,000 times on Twitter, according to Next Big Sound.

Halladay died at age 74 of lung cancer outside Paris. He was honored on Instagram by Ed Sheeran, who called him a “true gent” in a Dec. 6 photo of the pair. Sheeran jumps 25-6 on the Social 50 with a 216 percent boost in Instagram reactions, helped in part by his photo with Hallyday.

Additionally, Sheeran’s Instagram bump was assisted by two photos from the Dec. 7 ceremony where he accepted his Member of the Order of the British Empire honor for his contributions to charity as well as his musical endeavors. He also posted about the track list to Eminem’s album Revival, on which Sheeran is a featured artist and co-writer on the song “River.”

One spot below Sheeran at No. 7 on the Social 50, Taylor Swift re-enters following a flurry of activity on her Instagram page, garnering 16.4 million reactions overall (up 2,733 percent). The singer, in addition to posting shots from her Vogue cover photoshoot, also shared the magazine cover for Time’s person of the year issue on which she was featured among the “Silence Breakers,” a collection of women who railed against harassment and sexual assault in 2017.

Sia's 'Santa's Coming for Us' Jingles to No. 1 on AC Chart
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... s-ac-chart
12/15/2017 by Gary Trust

The song is the first holiday hit to top the tally this holiday season.

Sia's "Santa's Coming for Us" tops Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart (dated Dec. 23), becoming the 21st holiday No. 1 on the ranking since 2000.

The song, whose video stars, among others, Kristen Bell, Henry Winkler and J.B. Smoove, is additionally Sia's first AC No. 1. She previously peaked at a No. 2 high in February with "Cheap Thrills," featuring Sean Paul.

Meanwhile, "Santa" reigns for the second time on AC, as one song with his (first) name in its title previously led: Mariah Carey's "Oh Santa!," for four weeks in 2010-11. ("Santa" hits No. 1 ahead of his annual global tour in the early hours of Dec. 25.)

Here's an updated recap of all the holiday songs that have dashed to the top of the AC chart. (None did so until the 2000-01 holiday season, around the time that a majority of AC stations began playing seasonal songs 24/7 between Thanksgiving and Christmas annually.)

Holiday No. 1s on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Chart
Title, Artist, Chart Date Reached No. 1, Weeks at No. 1
"Santa's Coming for Us," Sia, Dec. 23, 2017, one (to date)
"Baby, It's Cold Outside," Brett Eldredge feat. Meghan Trainor, Jan. 7, 2017, one
"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," Josh Groban, Dec. 24, 2016, one
"This Christmas," Train, Dec. 17, 2016, two
"This Christmas," Seal, Jan. 2, 2016, one
"Baby It's Cold Outside," Idina Menzel duet with Michael Buble, Dec. 20, 2014, three
"Underneath the Tree," Kelly Clarkson, Dec. 2, 2013, four
"Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow," Rod Stewart, Dec. 8, 2012, five

Hot 100 Chart Moves: Taylor Swift Tallies 55th Top 40 Hit With 'End Game'
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... hart-moves
12/15/2017 by Gary Trust

The song surges 83-39 following the wide-release of parent album "Reputation" on streaming services. Plus, chart action for Dua Lipa & Demi Lovato.

As previously reported, Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé's "Perfect" crowns the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Dec. 23), fueled heavily by the first full week of sales and streaming for its new duet version.

Plus, Camila Cabello's "Havana" takes over atop the Radio Songs chart; Halsey's "Bad at Love" hits the Hot 100's top 10, climbing 11-8, while her new (and descriptive) duet with G-Eazy, "Him & I," debuts at No. 21; and Mariah Carey's 1994 classic "All I Want for Christmas Is You" returns to its No. 11 Hot 100 high.

Who else makes notable Hot 100 chart moves this week?

"End Game," Taylor Swift feat. Ed Sheeran and Future
The song vaults 83-39 in its third week on the Hot 100 (after debuting at No. 86 two weeks ago), following parent album Reputation's wide release to streaming services Dec. 1. Previously, only the set's four pre-release tracks were available for streaming. Those four songs all hit the Hot 100's top 40: "Look What You Made Me Do" (three weeks at No. 1); "…Ready for It?" (No. 4); "Gorgeous" (No. 13); and "Call It What You Want" (No. 27).

"End Game," now Reputation's fifth top 40 hit, drew 7.6 million U.S. streams in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music. It also jumps 15-10 on the Digital Song Sales chart, up 40 percent to 24,000 downloads sold, and 45-38 on Radio Songs (31 million audience impressions, up 26 percent).

Swift tallies her 55th top 40 Hot 100 hit, the fifth-best total in the chart's history. Elvis Presley leads with 80 top 40 titles, dating to the chart's Aug. 4, 1958, launch (more than two years after he began appearing on various Billboard charts).

Artists With the Most Top 40 Hot 100 Hits
80, Elvis Presley
71, Lil Wayne
67, Drake
57, Elton John
55, Taylor Swift
51, Glee Cast
50, The Beatles
49, Madonna
49, Rihanna
47, JAY-Z

"New Rules," Dua Lipa
The pop singer-songwriter earns her first top 10 on the Pop Songs airplay chart, as "New Rules" rises 11-9 (up 13 percent in plays). She charted three prior songs on the tally, all since November 2016: "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" (No. 23), "Scared to Be Lonely," with Martin Garrix (No. 21), and "Be the One" (No. 40).

On the Hot 100, "New Rules" ranks at No. 17 after reaching No. 15.

"Tell Me You Love Me," Demi Lovato
Following the Dec. 1 premiere of its official video, the song re-enters the Hot 100 at a new No. 53 high (after a week at No. 97 on Sept. 16, as it was released ahead of Lovato's album of the same name, which entered the Billboard 200 dated Oct. 21 at its No. 3 peak).

The track re-enters Digital Song Sales at No. 20 (17,000, up 709 percent) and bows on Streaming Songs at No. 48, up 464 percent to 10.9 million U.S. streams.
