Well this is a surprise--having never really had a hit to their name here, The 1975 is #1 on the albums chart, after their debut only got to #28. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis enter at #4 with no current hit to support it. Their first album debuted at #2 several weeks before "Thrift Shop" blew up, and that was on 78K sales compared to 61K for this album (51K proper sales). So this one could stick around too if there's a smash hit or two in waiting. Kelly Clarkson is boosted way up to #6, with 44K sales units but only 19K proper sales. Pretty sure this is only Piece By Piece's second week top 10. Joey + Rory are top 10 for a third week, unfortunately Joey Feek passed away from cancer over the weekend. sad.gif At #42 is none other than Tweet of "Oops (Oh My)" fame from 2002. This is only her third album so that is some impressive semi-relevance!

New RIAA certifications:
Coldplay, A Head Full Of Dreams - Gold
Drake, Nothing Was The Same - 3x Platinum
Alabama Shakes, Sound and Color - Gold
Little Big Town, Pain Killer - Gold

The numbers after each album title are: Total units, % change, last week's units, sales, track-equivalent units and stream-equivalent units.

The 1975 Earns First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart
3/6/2016 by Keith Caulfield

Alternative band The 1975 scores its first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as its second full-length effort, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware, debuts atop the list. The set earned 108,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 3, according to Nielsen Music. It sold 98,000 in pure album sales.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new March 19-dated chart (where The 1975 is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, March 8.

Not only is I Like It When You Sleep the first chart-topper for The 1975, but it’s also the first top 10 set for the British group, whose self-titled debut album bowed and peaked at No. 28 on the Sept. 21, 2013-dated chart. On the latest Billboard 200, The 1975 returns to the list at No. 140 (5,000 units; up 25 percent), for its 71st nonconsecutive week on the chart. The set has sold 349,000 and has remained a steady weekly seller since its arrival. Comparatively, it took 26 weeks for The 1975 to sell what I Like It When You Sleep sold in its first week.

The new album is also No. 1 in the band’s homeland, as it bows atop the Official U.K. Albums Chart. The 1975 follows such recent British acts as David Bowie, Adele, Muse and Florence + The Machine, who all also simultaneously debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and the Official U.K. Albums Chart with their latest releases.

I Like It When You Sleep has already notched four top 20 hits on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs tally: “Love Me” (No. 7), “Ugh!” (No. 10), “The Sound” (No. 14) and “Somebody Else” (No. 13).

Adele’s 25 slips 1-2 in its 15th week on the Billboard 200, earning another 74,000 units (down 26 percent). Rihanna’s Anti also falls 2-3 with 71,000 (down 11 percent).

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ new This Unruly Mess I’ve Made debuts at No. 4 with 61,000 units (of which 51,000 are pure album sales). The hip-hop duo’s last album, The Heist, debuted and peaked at No. 2 with 78,000 sold in its first week. It went on to generate four top 15-charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 (including a pair of No. 1s: “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us”) and has sold 1.5 million copies.

The new album’s lead single, “Downtown,” peaked at No. 12 on the Hot 100 dated Oct. 31, 2015.

Justin Bieber’s Purpose descends 3-5 with 56,000 units (down 12 percent).

Kelly Clarkson’s Piece by Piece album zooms 120-6 with 44,000 units (up 682 percent) and 19,000 copies sold (up 676 percent, with its best sales frame since its second week on sale). The set rockets back into the top 10 for the first time since its No. 1 debut (March 21, 2015) thanks to an emotional performance by Clarkson on the Feb. 25 edition of American Idol. On the show, she sang a piano ballad rendition of the album’s title track, which brought the diva (and Idol judge Keith Urban) to tears.

A day after the performance, Clarkson recorded an Idol-inspired version of “Piece by Piece,” and it was commercially released on Feb. 29. It was also added to the deluxe digital version of the album.

Clarkson’s 114-position leap on the Billboard 200 chart is the largest positional jump into the top 10 in five years. An album last had a larger leap on the Jan. 22, 2011-dated list, when the Country Strong soundtrack vaulted 149-10 (for a 139 position jump).

Chris Stapleton’s Traveller descends 5-7 with 43,000 units (down 17 percent), and Twenty One Pilots’ Blurryface moves 7-8 with 36,000 units (down 7 percent).

Rock band Anthrax claims its second top 10 album, as For All Kings opens at No. 9 (34,000 units; nearly all in pure album sales). The act was last in the top 10 back in 1993 with Sound of White Noise, which debuted and peaked at No. 7 on the June 12, 1993-dated list. For All Kings also logs Anthrax its largest sales week for an album since Sound of White Noise’s second week on sale (40,000; it debuted with 62,000).

For All Kings is the band’s first studio album since 2011’s Worship Music (No. 12 peak with 28,000 sold in its first week) and follows the 2013 covers set Anthems (No. 52; 8,000 sold in its debut frame).

Joey + Rory’s Hymns rounds out the new top 10, as it falls 8-10 with 33,000 units (down 12 percent).
