So, ANTI was deemed eligible to chart this week and debuts at #27. Not really a big deal since it will climb next week on proper sales, and interestingly 460 people managed to purchase a copy before Friday. Adele reclaims #1 for an eighth week, and Justin Bieber reclaims #2. When you look at the breakdown for each component you can see just how little Purpose is selling compared to 25, and all the other albums that are highly boosted by streaming. A #28 debut on less than 15K is surprisingly low for Hoodie Allen after his first release was #8 on 30K just sixteen months ago.

The numbers after the artist and title are: This week's units, % change, last week's units, this week's album sales, this week's song sales, this week's streaming.

Adele's '25' Album Back to No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart for Eighth Week
1/31/2016 by Keith Caulfield

Adele’s 25 returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 after a two-week vacation from the top of the list, as it rises 2-1 in its 10th week on the chart.

The album earned 116,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Jan. 28, according to Nielsen Music (down 21 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 Feb. 13, 2016-dated chart (where Adele returns to at No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Feb. 2.

In the latest tracking week, 25 sold another 97,000 in pure album sales (down 20 percent), which brings its cumulative sum to 7.94 million in the U.S. It is likely 25 will reach 8 million sold in the next week.

Justin Bieber’s Purpose climbs 3-2 with 87,000 units (down 5 percent). The former No. 1 album has yet to leave the top three of the chart since it debuted 11 weeks ago.

Rock band Megadeth notches the chart’s highest debut as is Dystopia bows at No. 3 with 49,000 units (48,000 in pure album sales). It’s the highest charting album for the act since 1992’s Countdown to Extinction debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the chart dated Aug. 1 of that year. The new album also logs the group’s best sales week since 2007, when United Abominations launched with 54,000 sold at No. 8.

Twenty One Pilots’ Blurryface ascends 5-4 with 42,000 units (down 6 percent), Panic! at the Disco’s Death of a Bachelor falls 1-5 with 39,000 units (down 79 percent) and David Bowie’s Blackstar slips 4-6 with 35,000 units (down 61 percent). Chris Stapleton’s Traveller rides 8-7 with 34,000 units (down 16 percent), and The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness is up 9-8 with 32,000 units (down 6 percent).

The new 2016 Grammy Nominees compilation album debuts at No. 9 with 31,000 units (all from pure album sales). Last year’s 2015 Grammy nominees set entered at No. 12 with 45,000 sold, on its way to a No. 9 peak three weeks later (65,000), following the Grammy Awards broadcast.

Bryson Tiller’s Trapsoul closes out the top 10, holding at No. 10 with 31,000 units (down 1 percent).

'ANTI'S ARRIVAL: Despite being available for only a fraction of the chart tracking week, Anti starts at No. 27 on the Billboard 200 albums chart dated Feb. 13, bowing after only a little more than a day's worth of activity in the marketplace, as the latest chart's tracking week ended on Jan. 28. (The chart, and all of Billboard's charts dated Feb. 13, will be posted to Billboard.com on Feb. 2.)

Anti was released through Tidal's streaming service on the evening of Jan. 27. (It was not released commercially until Jan. 28 through Tidal, and then through all digital retailers on Jan. 29. A physical CD release for the album is scheduled for Feb. 5.)

The Billboard 200 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 chart's tracking week runs Friday through Thursday each week.

Anti's bow on the chart is largely driven by track sales and streaming activity of its lead single "Work" (it was released at 8 a.m. ET on Jan. 27) along with streams of the album’s tracks. In the week ending Jan. 28 in the U.S., "Work" sold 126,000 downloads and Anti album generated 4.7 million streams for its songs, according to Nielsen Music. A small number of sales for the Anti album were registered in the week ending Jan. 28, but not enough for the set to chart on any of Billboard's pure album sales charts.

Anti's streaming debut on Tidal was concurrent with its availability -- in a limited quantity -- as a free download, supported by Samsung. Anti generated 1.47 million downloads globally in less than 15 hours. Those gratis downloads do not count toward the charts or Nielsen Music's sales figures.

Industry forecasters expect Anti to make a big leap up the Billboard 200 chart next week -- possibly to No. 1 -- after the album has a full week of activity behind it. Prognosticators suggest Anti could shift around 125,000 in equivalent album units in the week ending Feb. 4, which could power the album to No. 1 on the chart dated Feb. 20. If Anti hits the top, it will mark Rihanna's second No. 1, following her previous studio album, 2012's Unapologetic.
