The Weeknd holds at #1 this week, surprisingly his stream sales were nearly equal to his actual sales! Unlucky for Five Finger Death Punch who settle for their third #2 album in a row, still without a #1 to their name. Iron Maiden gets their second #4 (studio) album in a row, matching their highest peak to date on the Billboard 200. And, funny enough, Troye Sivan matches the #5 debut of his previous EP 'TRXYE' from last year! Troye and Iron Maiden both manage a sales increase from their previous releases; Iron Maiden's first-week sales have been increasing consistently for their last six albums, as you'll see in the article below.

The Weeknd Spends Second Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart
By Keith Caulfield | September 13, 2015 4:10 PM EDT

The Weeknd earns a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart as Beauty Behind the Madness continues to reign as the most popular album in the U.S. The set shifted another 145,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 10, according to Nielsen Music (down 65 percent). A week ago, the album bounded into the top slot with 411,000 units.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Sept. 26-dated chart (where The Weeknd is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Sept. 15.

Rock band Five Finger Death Punch charts its third consecutive No. 2 album with the debut of Got Your Six, which enters with 119,000 units. That sum is powered by 114,000 in pure album sales, which makes it the top selling album of the week, and it reigns at No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart. That 114,000 figure is also the group’s best sales week ever, surpassing the 112,000 launch of 2013’s No. 2-peaking The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell: Volume 1.

Got Your Six also enters at No. 1 on the Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums charts — their third straight leader on both lists.

The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness is No. 2 on the Top Album Sales chart with 77,000 copies sold.

Back on the Billboard 200, rapper Travi$ Scott starts at No. 3 with his debut studio album Rodeo (85,000 units, of which 70,000 are pure album sales). It also starts at No. 1 on the Rap Albums chart, and No. 2 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums (behind The Weeknd).

Veteran rock band Iron Maiden debuts at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with their new studio effort The Book of Souls (75,000 units). That equals their highest rank ever, first achieved in 2010 with The Final Frontier’s debut and peak at No. 4.

The new album also debuts with 74,000 albums sold, which is the group’s best sales week since Nielsen Music started tracking sales in 1991.

Also notable: The Book of Souls is the sixth straight Iron Maiden studio album to show debut week sales growth. Their steady climb started with 1998’s Virtual XI (10,000 sales debut, up from the 6,000 of 1995’s X Factor) and then continued on with 2000’s Brave New World (38,000), 2003’s Dance of Death (40,000), 2006’s A Matter of Life and Death (56,000), 2010’s The Final Frontier (63,000) and now its new album.

Troye Sivan claims his second straight Top 5 album, as his second EP, Wild, bows at No. 5 (50,000 units; 45,000 from album sales). It follows his debut EP, TRXYE, which debuted and peaked at No. 5 on the Aug. 30, 2014-dated chart (30,000).

Wild’s debut was powered largely by digital sales, with 43,000 of its sales sum coming from downloads. The EP also starts at No. 4 on the Digital Albums chart.

Luke Bryan’s former No. 1 album Kill the Lights slips 3-6 with 45,000 units (down 11 percent) and Taylor Swift’s 1989 dips 4-7 with 43,000 units (down 2 percent). Halsey’s Badlands falls 2-8 with 35,000 (down 69 percent) and Ed Sheeran’s X descends 6-9 with 27,000 (down 6 percent). Future’s DS2 closes out the Top 10, up one rung to No. 10, with 25,000 units (down 4 percent).

Billboard 200 Chart Moves: Elle King Hits the Top 40, Luke Bryan's Latest Half-Million Seller
By Keith Caulfield | September 18, 2015 3:13 PM EDT

On the most recent Billboard 200 albums chart (dated Sept. 26), The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness held for a second week atop the list. It earned 144,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 10, according to Nielsen Music -- down 65 percent compared to its start of 411,000 units a week earlier.

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 Sept. 26 chart:

— Luke Bryan, Kill the Lights - No. 6 — Luke Bryan’s former No. 1 album Kill the Lights has now surpassed 500,000 in total sales, as the set sold another 34,000 copies in the week ending Sept. 10. The album’s cumulative sales now stand at 530,000. Kill the Lights is Bryan’s sixth set to sell more than 500,000 copies. His biggest seller is Crash My Party, with 2.5 million sold.

— Elle King, Love Stuff - No. 37 — Elle King’s Love Stuff hits a new chart high -- and visits the top 40 for the first time -- as the album climbs 42-37 (10,000 units; up 5 percent). The album debuted on the chart dated March 7 at No. 45, and then slipped off the chart after the April 25-dated list. It then returned on the June 20 tally and has (mostly) been on the rise ever since, thanks to the success of its single “Ex’s & Oh’s,” which spends a second week at No. 1 on the Alternative Songs chart. It’s also a top 20 hit on Adult Pop Songs, a top 30 charter on Pop Songs, and a former No. 2 smash on the Adult Alternative Songs chart.

— Alabama Shakes, Sound & Color - No. 85 — A number of rock albums on the chart profit from sale pricing and promotion at digital retailers, including Sound & Color (6,000 units; up 31 percent, rising 149-85) and Evanescence’s Fallen (a reentry at No. 102 with 5,000; up 128 percent). Other notable rock gainers include All Time Low’s Future Hearts (reentering at No. 106 with 5,000; up 137 percent), My Chemical Romance’s The Black Parade (a reentry at No. 123 with 5,000; up 31 percent) and Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory (a reentry at No. 125 with, again, 5,000 units; up 70 percent). Also helping Alabama Shakes: the band’s frontwoman, Brittany Howard, was a surprise musical guest on the first episode of CBS’ The Late Show With Stephen Colbert (Sept. 8).

— Fidlar, Too - No. 124 — Fidlar's second album, Too, arrives at No. 124 (5,000 units) and also straight in to No. 1 on the Heatseekers Albums chart (4,000 pure albums sold). The rock band’s new 12-song album follows their 2013 self-titled effort, which debuted and peaked at No. 5, and went on to sell 24,000. The new album, which the band will support on tour through late November, performed strongly on vinyl as well, with 35 percent of its debut sales coming from the LP configuration. It debuts at No. 6 on the Vinyl Albums chart.

— Chris Stapleton, Traveller - No. 139 — Stapleton earned three Country Music Association Award (CMA Awards) nominations on Sept. 9, including album of the year (for Traveller), which likely push the set’s 47 percent unit gain and reentry at No. 139 (rising to 4,000 for the week).

— Daya, Daya (EP) – No. 161 — Sixteen-year-old pop singer Daya bows at No. 161 with her self-titled debut EP, shifting 4,000 units. The indie-released set, issued through the Artbeatz label, is led by the single “Hide Away.” The cut rises 40-38 on the Pop Songs airplay chart, with a 19 percent rise in spins at the format. On the Heatseekers Albums chart, the Daya EP starts at No. 20.

Unlucky for Five Finger Death Punch who settle for their third #2 album in a row, still without a #1 to their name.

Especially unfortunate given they actually (comfortably) sold the most albums this week! Just can't compete with The Weeknd's TEA in particular though, what with him currently occupying the top two positions on the Hot 100. Nice to see him do the double this week anyway.

Halsey's holding up much better than I expected based on other territories. ohmy.gif
