Post Malone, Ed Sheeran & Drake Dominate Nielsen Music's Mid-Year 2018 Charts
7/6/2018 by Keith Caulfield

Plus: Overall equivalent album units grew 14%, on-demand streams rose 42% and R&B/hip-hop continues as music’s most popular genre.

Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys, Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” and Drake’s “God’s Plan” dominate Nielsen Music’s 2018 mid-year charts.

Post Malone’s ‘beerbongs’ Rules: For the tracking period of Dec. 29, 2017 through June 28, 2018, beerbongs & bentleys leads as the most popular album in the U.S. The set — Post Malone’s second studio effort — earned 1.791 million equivalent album units in the first half of the year. (Equivalent album units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums [TEA] and streaming equivalent albums [SEA]. Each unit — through June 28, ahead the previously announced weighting change — equaled one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from one album, or 1,500 on-demand audio streams generated by songs on an album. For the sake of clarity, equivalent album units do not include listening to music on broadcast radio or digital radio broadcasts.)

beerbongs & bentleys granted Post Malone his first No. 1 on the weekly Billboard 200 albums chart, and launched with 461,000 units earned in its first week.

The Greatest Showman soundtrack stands as the No. 2 biggest album of 2018, so far, with 1.602 million units, while Cardi B’s debut studio set Invasion of Privacy is No. 3 with 1.113 million units.

Equivalent Album Units Grew 13.8 Percent: Overall equivalent album units in the first half of 2018 grew 13.8 percent as compared to the first half of 2017 (270 million units vs. 237.2 million units). (If one adds on-demand video SEA units into the mix, the 2018’s mid-year sum equals 360.1 million units, up 18.4 percent compared to a year ago: 304.1 million.)

R&B/Hip-Hop Still Music’s Biggest Genre: The R&B/hip-hop genre continues to maintain its lead as the U.S.’ most popular genre of music. The genre has a 31 percent marketshare of the combined sector of album sales, TEA and SEA on-demand audio and video. The next biggest genre is rock, with 23.1 percent of that market.

‘The Greatest Showman’ Is Top-Selling Album: As far was the top-selling album, that honor goes to The Greatest Showman soundtrack, which sold 1.064 million copies in the first half of 2018 — and is the only album to have sold a million this year. The album is a rare success in terms of traditional album sales, as fewer and fewer titles sell in relatively great numbers anymore. Comparatively, in 2017, the industry had to wait until November for its first million seller: Taylor Swift’s reputation., which sold 1.2 million copies in its first week (ending Nov. 16). 2017 finished with just two million sellers: reputation. and Ed Sheeran’s ÷ (Divide).

Overall Album Sales Decline 17.6 Percent: Overall album sales — physical and digital combined — are down 17.6 percent in 2018 compared to the same point a year ago. (68.8 million vs. 83.5 million.)

Jack White’s ‘Boarding House’ Hot on Vinyl: The top-selling album on both CD and digital download is The Greatest Showman, with 367,000 copies sold on CD, and 676,000 copies sold via digital album. The top selling vinyl LP is Jack White’s Boarding House Reach, with 37,000 copies sold on the format.

On-Demand Audio and Video Song Streams Continue to Increase: As for total on-demand audio and video streams, the market grew 41.6 percent. Combined, on-demand audio and video streams totaled 403.4 billion in the first half of 2018, as compared to 284.8 billion in the first six months of 2017.

Of the total mid-year 2018 streaming sum, on-demand audio streams comprised 268.2 billion (up 45.4 percent from 184.4 billion), while on-demand video streams equaled 135.2 billion (up 34.7 percent from 100.4 billion).

‘God’s Plan’ Sizzled on Streaming Services: Drake’s “God’s Plan” rules as most streamed song of the first six months, with a whopping 1.121 billion streams in combined on-demand audio and on-demand video streams. It’s the only song to have tallied more than a billion streams in 2018. “God’s Plan” also rules as the top streamed song by on-demand audio streams (655 million) and on-demand video streams (466 million).

^ Thanks Chris, more from "Variety"...

Drake, Post Malone Rule Nielsen Music Mid-Year Charts; Album Consumption Up 18%

Drake and Post Malone had the highest volume of on-demand streams and Ed Sheeran has the top song in Nielsen Music’s mid-year report for the six-month period ending June 28, 2018, which was released Friday morning.

“The first half of 2018 has shown robust growth for the music industry, building upon the successes of the business in recent years,” said David Bakula, SVP of Industry Insights for Nielsen Music, in a statement. “Fans have never before had access to music on the scale that we see today, and we expect even more gains for the industry in the six months ahead.”

Total album equivalent consumption — which includes physical and digital album sales, song sales and on-demand audio and video song streams — is up 18%, passing 400 billion streams for the first time. On-demand audio streaming volume is up 45%, having already exceeded 268 billion so far in 2018, and on-demand video streaming volume is up 35% year-over-year, according to the report. (The report notes that total album equivalent audio consumption — albums + track equivalent albums (TEA) + on-demand audio streaming equivalent albums (SEA) — is up 13.8% year-to-date over 2017, while total album equivalent consumption — albums + TEA + on-demand audio/video SEA — is up 18.4%.)

Drake and Post Malone had the highest volume of on-demand audio streams in the U.S., with 3.3 billion and 3.1 billion, respectively, but higher album sales put Post Malone on top of all artists in total album equivalent consumption. Drake’s “God’s Plan” is the year’s biggest song thus far, in terms of total song consumption (digital song sales with streaming equivalent on-demand audio); it has clocked 5.3 million units, including 655 million on-demand audio streams. It is followed by Post Malone’s “Psycho” and BlocBoy JB’s “Look Alive.”

Post Malone’s “Beerbongs & Bentleys” is the leading album in total album equivalent audio consumption this year with total activity of 1.8 million units (albums + TEA + on-demand audio SEA), although that number is likely to be eclipsed by Drake’s “Scorpion,” which broke Malone’s one-day streaming records upon its release last Friday, one day after the Nielsen mid-year mark. It is followed by “The Greatest Showman” soundtrack with 1.6 million units and Cardi B’s “Invasion of Privacy” with 1.1 million units.

Ed Sheeran leads all pop artists at the mid-year mark, as his song “Perfect” is the top pop single for streaming and radio airplay spins; it is also the year’s most-downloaded song, with just over 1 million units. Imagine Dragons held down three of the top five rock songs with “Thunder,” “Believer” and “Whatever it Takes.”

The report noted that three genres in particular have helped drive the year’s gains: Latin (+39% over last year), R&B/Hip-Hop (+26%) and Pop (+19%) all saw increases in total album equivalent consumption.

Latin has grown to 7.7% of total industry volume (albums + TEA + on-demand audio/video SEA), up from 6.5% at the same time last year. R&B/Hip-Hop continues its growth as the industry’s most-consumed genre, with 31.2% of total volume (album + TEA + on-demand audio/video SEA). That genre’s lead over the next-biggest genre, Rock, has increased from 3.8% last year (28.6% vs. 24.8%) to a whopping 8.1% this year (31.2% vs. 23.1%). R&B/Hip-Hop now represents 36.4% of all song streams and 37.5% of all audio song streams this year.

Vinyl sales continue to climb at an impressive clip, up 19.2% year over year. Other album sales formats continue to decline, with CD sales down nearly 20% and sales of digital albums declining by 21.7%. Digital track sales continue to fall faster than all other formats, with sales down 27.4%.

Why do these lists in the Nielsen report have two different numbers for each artist if they're compiled the same way?

Sorry I don't…

I Am…Sasha Fierce was on 87,000 as of week 19, its last appearance on the BB200.

Lemonade was last on the BB200 week 17 with 67,000 at that point - as the album continues to appear in the sales chart, I'd guess total SPS at around 96,000 at the half year end.

Well streams are using a pretty arbitrary ratio anyway, so those SPS (TEA+SEA) will always be estimations based on valid exchange rate for streams at that time (which as we see changes anyway). The further we go we will probably see more discrepancies as methods change.
