Adele's '25' Biggest Selling Album Released Since 2011, Spends Fourth Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200
12/20/2015 by Keith Caulfield

‘25’ has sold more copies in the U.S. than any album released since Adele's own ‘21,’ which bowed in 2011.

As expected, Adele’s 25 holds at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart for a fourth week -- and by a large margin. The set earned 825,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Dec. 17 (up 13 percent), according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 790,000 were in pure album sales (up 14 percent).

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 Jan. 2, 2016-dated chart (where Adele is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Dec. 22.

In 25’s first four weeks of release, it sold 5.98 million copies. With its most recent sales week, 25 has surpassed the sales of Taylor Swift’s 1989 (5.57 million) to become the biggest selling album released in the U.S. since Adele’s last album, 21, which was issued in 2011. It has sold 11.37 million.

25 is also now the largest selling album of any calendar year since 2004, when Usher’s Confessions sold 7.98 million.

Further, 25 is the only album to sell in excess of 695,000 copies in four different weeks (or three, for that matter) since Nielsen Music began tracking point-of-sale purchases in 1991. The album bowed with 3.38 million sold in its first week, then sold 1.11 million in its second frame, and then 695,000 in week three.

There are still two more tracking weeks left in the 2015 calendar year -- the weeks ending Dec. 24 and Dec. 31. As the Dec. 24 week closes on the day before Christmas -- thus capturing a full seven days of last-minute holiday shopping -- 25’s sales are sure to surge. 25 could even capture another million-selling week.

In other Adele news, 21 returns to the top 10 on the latest Billboard 200, climbing 14-10 with 49,000 units (up 42 percent) and 40,000 in pure album sales (up 46 percent). Her first album, 19, is also in the top 40, as it rises 48-36 with 21,000 units (up 29 percent) and 18,000 in pure sales (up 36 percent).

Adele’s cumulative album sales -- for her three studio efforts and two digital-only live sets for iTunes -- jump past 20 million: to 20.28 million.

As for artists not named Adele in the top 10… Justin Bieber’s Purpose ascends a spot to No. 2 (166,000 units; up 10 percent), while Pentatonix’s That’s Christmas to Me is up 4-3 (141,000 units; up 1 percent). One Direction’s Made in the A.M. vaults 8-4 (67,000 units; up 11 percent), The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness steps 10-5 (63,000 units; up 29 percent) and Chris Stapleton’s Traveller moves 9-6 (62,000 units; up 22 percent). Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams falls 2-7 in its second week (61,000 units; down 71 percent) while both Michael Buble’s Christmas (11-8 with 50,000 units; up 5 percent) and Taylor Swift’s 1989 (12-9 with 49,000 units; up 28 percent) return to the top 10.

Just outside the top 10, The Voice winner Jordan Smith arrives at No. 11 with The Complete Season 9 Collection (48,000 units; 8,000 in pure album sales). The set had the highest track equivalent unit total of an album on the chart this week: 40,000 units, owed to the strong sales of the tracks on the album. It’s no surprise then to see that Smith dominates the top of the Digital Songs chart, with four titles in the top 20, including the No. 1: “Mary, Did You Know” (a debut with 161,000 downloads).

Justin Bieber's 'Purpose' Becomes His Fifth Million-Selling Album in U.S.
12/21/2015 by Keith Caulfield

Justin Bieber has earned his fifth million-selling album in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music. The pop star's latest album, Purpose, has now surpassed 1 million total copies sold.

The set sold another 100,000 copies in the latest tracking week, bringing its total sum in pure album sales to 1.01 million. Bieber's other million sellers are: Believe (released in 2012, 1.61 million), Under the Mistletoe (2011, 1.51 million), My World 2.0 (2010, 3.33 million) and My World (2009, 2.08 million).

Purpose is just the third album released in 2015 to sell one million copies. It joins Adele's 25 (5.98 million) and Drake's If You're Reading This It's Too Late (1.12 million).

Additionally, Purpose only took five weeks to reach a million sold -- the quickest trip to a million for Bieber thus far. His previous quickest rise to a million sold with an album was with Under the Mistletoe, which took seven weeks to reach the mark.

Purpose debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated Dec. 5, giving Bieber his sixth chart-topping album. It bowed with 649,000 equivalent album units and 522,000 in pure album sales.

Adele's heading for another 1M+ week :')
QUOTE
Adele's '25' Set for Historic Third Million-Selling Week in U.S.

Adele’s 25 is set for a historic third million-selling week in the U.S., according to industry forecasters.

Those in the know suggest that her red-hot 25 could sell slightly more than a million copies in pure album sales in the week ending Dec. 24 -- its fifth week on sale. That would give the title its third frame of million-plus sales, following its debut week (3.38 million, according to Nielsen Music) and second stanza (1.11 million).

25 is the first album to earn multiple million-plus sales weeks since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991.

As earlier reported, through its fourth week on sale, 25 sold 5.98 million copies, making it the biggest-selling album released in the U.S. since Adele’s last album, 21, which bowed in 2011. The latter title has sold 11.37 million.

25’s sales total for the week ending Dec. 24 is scheduled to be announced on Sunday, Dec. 27, after Nielsen has completed processing its sales data for the week.

so that's 7M for the year on lock, and we still have one more full tracking week to go so it could be approaching 8M for the calendar year when all is said and done.

So '25' has now already passed the total sales to date of '1989' - once again showing how different a league Adele is in compared to every single other artist, considering Taylor herself is pretty much in a league of her own compared to all non-Adele artists!

That comparison is especially apt now as 'Fearless', still Taylor's best-selling album here, has just this week passed 7 million copies sold. That album's been out for 7 years whereas '25' will have that many sales in just five weeks!

------------------------------

Billboard 200 Chart Moves: Taylor Swift's 'Fearless' Surpasses 7 Million Sold in U.S.
12/23/2015 by Keith Caulfield

On the most recent Billboard 200 albums chart (dated Jan. 2, 2016; but reflecting data for the week ending Dec. 17, 2015), Adele’s 25 held firm at No. 1 while the top debut on the list was The Voice winner Jordan Smith at No. 11.

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).

Let’s take a closer look at some of the action on the chart:

— Pentatonix, That’s Christmas To Me - No. 3 — The album sold another 127,000 copies in the week ending Dec. 17 (up 1 percent), bringing its cumulative total to over 1.5 million – 1.62 million to be more precise. The 2014 release (which was reissued in 2015 with bonus tracks) has sold more than the combined total of the group’s six other albums and EPs (1.34 million).

— Taylor Swift, 1989 – No. 9 — The former No. 1 album -- now in its 60th week on the chart -- returns to the top 10 (rising 12-9) to snag a 55th nonconsecutive week in the region. The album lingered in the top 10 for its first 53 chart weeks. Since the Billboard 200 combined its mono and stereo albums charts in 1963 into one all-encompassing weekly albums chart, Swift is the only act to have earned more than one album with more than 50 weeks in the top 10, with both 1989 and Fearless (58 weeks in the top 10). The record for the most weeks in the top 10 during that span of time is held by The Sound of Music film soundtrack, with 109 weeks.

In other Swift news, her Fearless album surpasses 7 million in total U.S. sales, as it moved another 3,000 copies in the week ending Dec. 17 to bring its total to 7,001,000. The album, released in 2008, continues to rule as Swift’s biggest-selling effort.

— Ryan Adams, 1989 – No. 84 — Ryan Adams’ interpretation of Taylor Swift’s 1989 returns to the list, reentering at No. 84, thanks to the vinyl LP release of his album. It debuts at No. 2 on the Vinyl Albums chart with 7,000 copies sold, which helps the album’s overall rank on the Billboard 200 (10,000 units; up 236 percent, and nearly 10,000 in pure album sales; up 296 percent).

— Twenty One Pilots, Blurryface - No. 13 — The album’s total sales rise past a half-million, as it sold another 29,000 in the week ending Dec. 17. The set’s cumulative sum now stands at 505,000 and is their first half-million seller. (Their previous album, Vessel, has moved 375,000 copies.)

— Soundtrack, The Wiz Live! - No. 155 — The companion album to NBC live staging of the musical arrives with 7,000 units and 6,000 in pure album sales. The Wiz was the network’s third yearly live musical staging following The Sound of Music Live! in 2013 and Peter Pan Live! in 2014. While The Sound of Music Live! soundtrack reached No. 17 on the Billboard in 2013 (and has sold 121,000 copies to date), the Peter Pan Live! album missed all of Billboard’s charts (and has moved just 3,000).
