This chart reflects the new Billboard 200 methodology of including:
  • TEA - Track Equivalent Albums - "10 digital track sales = 1 album sale"
  • SEA - Stream Equivalent Albums - "1,500 song streams = 1 album sale"

Chart Highlights

This is the inaugural chart to use the new Billboard 200 methodology, which now includes individual track downloads and streaming. Pure sales are added to Track Equivalent Albums (TEA) and Stream Equivalent Albums (SEA) using the ratios below:
TEA - Track Equivalent Albums - 10 digital track sales = 1 album sale
SEA - Stream Equivalent Albums - 1,500 song streams = 1 album sale

The aim is to boost overall reported sales and it has had quite an effect on the chart. Here are just some of the highlights:
  • Robin Schulz has the honour of the lowest selling album on the new chart when looking at his pure sales. He sold just 982 copies of "Prayer", but with TEA and SEA included, he debuts at #74 on the Billboard 200 with 13,368 units.
  • Taylor Swift's "1989" has the highest pure sales figure on the chart. It sol sold 281,212 copies the old-fashioned way, that is an actual physical or digital copy of the complete album.
  • "1989" also has the highest number of TEA with 58,040 units. Even without this figure, Taylor would still have returned to #1.
  • Beyonce also benefited greatly from track downloads & streaming, with 24,618 TEA units added to her total for "Beyonce [Platinum Edition] (More)". Her pure sales figure of 42,959 would have seen her debut outside the Top 10 on the old chart.
  • The popularity of "The Hanging Tree" has greatly helped "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part I: Score", with 20,371 TEA units added to its total. Without TEA, the film score wouldn't even have debuted in the Top 100 of the old chart, as it only sold 4,092 copies.
  • One Direction's "FOUR" took the honours for highest number of stream equivalent albums (SEA), with 7,208 SEA added to its total, but it doesn't look like this component is going to have too much of an effect just yet.
Another odd feature of Billboard's new methodology is that when an artist has 2 albums on the chart with songs common to both, TEA and SEA are added to the highest selling album, and this has affected Coldplay, Iggy Azelea and to an extent Beyonce:
  • Coldplay have 2 versions of "Ghost Stories" on the Billboard 200. The Billboard common songs rule means that TEA and SEA albums were added to the live version of the album as it sold more than the studio album (7,836 vs 6,606), even it was the studio versions of the songs that were being downloaded and streamed more. The result being that the live version debuted at #93 on the Billboard 200 (11,205 units), while the studio version fell to #160 (6,747 units).
  • Iggy Azalea's re-release of her debut album has several songs in common with the original, and in terms of pure sales, both albums sold an almost identical amount - "Reclassified" sold 13,813 copies while "The New Classic" sold 13,637. Because of the common songs rule, TEA and SEA units were added to the re-issue, resulting in "Reclassified" debuting at #27 the Billboard 200 (33,638 units), with "The New Classic" having to settle for #70 (14,155 units).

Helped by Thanksgivng and Black Friday, this week's total album sales were up +33% on last week but down -15% compared with same week last year. YTD sales are down -12% on same point last year.

Physical CD sales also received a boost, up +50% on last week but down -19% compared with same week last year. YTD physical sales are also down (-17%) on last year. Digital album sales didn't get much of a boost, up just +5% on last week and down -12% compared with same week last year. YTD digital albums are also down (-10%) on last year.

Looks like many people have cherry-picked the tracks when it came to Ariana's album and obviously Beyonce's re-release. Very impressive TEA units for Taylor, of course thanks to mainly Blank Space.

35 christmas albums on the chart this week compared to 50 on the equivalent chart last year.

So the new methodology has probably pushed some xmas titles out of the chart.

And all those albums were saved by the new Billboard 200 methodology. They did even worse on the pure sales chart (except for full expanded version of Beyonce album)
  • Beyonce (More) - #8 on BB200 - only #17 on Sales chart
  • Beyonce (Full) - #39 on BB200 - and #37 on Sales chart
  • Selena - #24 on BB200 - only #45 on Sales chart
  • Hunger Soundtrack (Lorde) - #43 on BB20 - only #63 on Sales chart
  • Hunger Games Score (Hanging Tree) - #40 on BB20 - not even Top 100 on Sales chart ohmy.gif

Thank you for your work britser, but I don't see a point why you wrote percentage change from last week. Imho comparing charts based on different methodology is pointless. But that's just my opinion wink.gif

I completely agree, but that's what they included in the sales info, and I didn't want to delete any information.

I guess this new system has brought back some colour to the Billboard 200 again ohmy.gif

Ariana has benefitted quite well since she's shot from 400k to a 'technical' 1 million copies!

Interesting that Taylor has 24 SEA units when she isn't even on streaming services. So, where did those units come from??

While the album may not be on any streaming services, she only needs one track to be on a streaming service somewhere to generate SEA units.

OMG YES CHEEK TO CHEEK

It should climb even more next week, its rise on the chart was mainly due to the H&M adverts now kicking in last week but with this week they've promoted to-death - performing on Howard Stern, Good Morning America, Colbert Report and the Rockefeller Special and their Cheek to Cheek LIVE Special airs tonight

It's sold +/- 365k to-date so far! Hopefully it can challenge for a top 10 re-entry in the forthcoming chart, it's risen considerably on iTunes and Amazon over the last 2 days
