Massive numbers for three Prince albums this week, and having five albums in the top 10 is the most ever by any artist, but it's Beyonce with the #1- her sixth out of six albums released. This one sells 652K units with 485K proper sales, less than her last album which sold 617K in just its first three days. Still better than '4' which opened on 310K, and even 'I Am...Sasha Fierce' which opened on 482K! Prince has 19 albums in the top 200, and Michael Jackson climbs in the chart yet again which is somewhat amusing, as does David Bowie. 'The Hits/The B-Sides' has a new peak at #4, originally peaking at #19 in 1993. 'Ultimate' seems to have a new peak too at #6. Several others achieve new sales peaks but not chart peaks.

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

Beyonce Earns Sixth No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart With 'Lemonade'
5/1/2016 by Keith Caulfield

Beyonce’s Lemonade album charges in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, giving the superstar her sixth chart-topper. The set earned 576,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 28, according to Nielsen Music. Pure album sales comprised 485,000 of that sum.

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 May 14-dated chart (where Lemonade is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, May 3.

Lemonade was introduced on April 23 through its same-titled film, which was soundtracked by the album’s songs, and premiered on HBO. The 12-song visual album was released by Parkwood/Columbia Records following the film’s debut, initially exclusively through Tidal. By Monday, April 25, the album -- which is bundled with the film -- went on sale through other digital retailers, but Tidal remains the only service with streaming rights to the set. A physical version of the album will be released on May 6.

Lemonade scores the biggest week of any album in 2016, both in terms of overall units and in sales.

All six of Beyonce’s studio albums have debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Lemonade follows her self-titled album in 2013, 4 (2011), I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008), B’Day (2006) and Dangerously In Love (2003). Beyonce is the only act to reach No. 1 with their first six studio efforts (and the only act to debut atop the list with their first six).

In addition to her six No. 1s, Beyonce has charted four further albums on the tally: Live at Wembley (No. 17 in 2004), Irremplazable EP (No. 109 in 2007), Above and Beyonce: Video Collection (No. 35 in 2009) and Beyonce: More Only EP (No. 8 in 2014).

Elsewhere in the top 10 of the new Billboard 200 chart, Prince rules with five titles -- all in the top seven of the list -- following the first full week of chart activity following his death on April 21.

His The Very Best of Prince greatest hits collection is pushed down one spot to No. 2 with 391,000 units (though it gains by 118 percent) and 216,000 copies sold (up 116 percent).

The Purple Rain soundtrack is also forced backwards, despite a gain, as it moves 2-3 with 150,000 units (up 117 percent) and 133,000 copies sold (up 113 percent). Two more of Prince’s greatest hits albums rank in the top 10: The Hits/The B-Sides, hits a new peak, as it climbs 6-4 with 106,000 units (up 159 percent) and 56,000 in sales (up 134 percent), while Ultimate also zooms to a new peak, 61-6, with 40,000 units (up 319 percent) and 37,000 in sales (up 317 percent).

With Ultimate’s rise into the top 10 for the first time, it marks Prince’s 19th top 10 album.

One more Prince album features in the latest top 10: his fifth studio effort, 1999. It climbs 31-7 -- a new chart high -- with 36,000 units (up 154 percent) and 33,000 in sales (up 149 percent). 1999 previously peaked at No. 9 in 1983.

A$AP Ferg collects the second-highest debut on the new Billboard 200, as his Always Strive and Prosper bows at No. 8 with 35,000 units (22,000 in traditional album sales). It’s the second top 10 effort for the hip-hop star, following 2013’s Trap Lord, which debuted and peaked at No. 9 with 32,000 sold.

As for the remainder of the top 10, Rihanna’s Anti dips 4-5 with 50,000 units (up 4 percent), Chris Stapleton’s Traveller falls 7-9 with 33,000 units (down 13 percent) and Justin Bieber’s Purpose holds at No. 10 with 31,000 units (down 14 percent).


Prince Sets Record With Five Albums in Top 10 of Billboard 200 Chart
5/3/2016 by Keith Caulfield

Prince is the first act to concurrently chart five albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 since the list merged its previously separate mono and stereo albums charts into one overall list in 1963.

On the list dated May 14 -- reflecting activity in the week ending April 28, the first full tracking week following Prince’s death on April 21 -- the artist is found at Nos. 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7 with The Very Best of Prince, Purple Rain, The Hits/The B-Sides, Ultimate and 1999, respectively. In total, Prince has a record 19 albums on the 200-position list.

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).

From April 21 through April 28, Prince’s catalog of albums and songs sold a staggering 4.41 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music. (In the tracking week before his death, Prince’s music sold comparably little: just 5,000 albums and 14,000 song downloads in the week ending April 15.)

Album by Album: The Very Best of Prince greatest-hits collection is pushed down one spot on the May 14 Billboard 200 chart to No. 2 with 391,000 units (though it gains by 118 percent) and 216,000 copies sold (up 116 percent). (Why was the set pushed down despite its huge gain? Beyonce’s Lemonade album debuted at No. 1.)

The Purple Rain soundtrack is also forced backward but with a gain, as it moves 2-3 with 150,000 units (up 117 percent) and 133,000 copies sold (up 113 percent).

Two more of Prince’s greatest-hits albums rank in the top 10: The Hits/The B-Sides hits a new peak, as it climbs 6-4 with 106,000 units (up 159 percent) and 56,000 in sales (up 134 percent), while Ultimate also zooms to a new peak, 61-6, with 40,000 units (up 319 percent) and 37,000 in sales (up 317 percent).

With Ultimate’s rise into the top 10 for the first time, it marks Prince’s 19th top 10 album.

One more Prince album features in the latest top 10: his fifth studio effort, 1999. It climbs 31-7 -- a new chart high -- with 36,000 units (up 154 percent) and 33,000 in sales (up 149 percent). 1999 previously peaked at No. 9 in 1983.

Prince is the first act to concurrently chart five albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 since 1963, when the chart merged its previously separate mono and stereo albums charts into one overall list.

An important note on the above chart feat: Presently, the Billboard 200 ranks the week's most popular albums in the U.S. -- regardless of their age. (All five of Prince’s albums in the top 10 are regarded as catalog, a term used to define those albums generally 18 months old.) The Billboard 200 has charted both new and catalog albums since the Dec. 5, 2009-dated tally, when the chart’s rules were revised to allow catalog titles onto the list. Previously, only new and recently released albums (referred to as current titles) could chart.

Had the Billboard 200 allowed catalog albums to chart previous to Dec. 5, 2009, both Michael Jackson and The Beatles would have claimed five simultaneous top 10 titles that year.

On the now-defunct Top Comprehensive Albums chart (which ranked both new and old albums), Jackson posthumously claimed six out of the top 10 in two weeks after his death in 2009 (on the July 25 and Aug. 1, 2009-dated charts). Later that year, after The Beatles remastered and reissued its studio albums on CD, the band earned five of the top 10 (Sept. 26, 2009).

More Prince Chart Action: Over on the Top Album Sales chart -- which ranks the top-selling albums of the week based purely on traditional album sales -- Prince also has five titles in the top 10. He’s at Nos. 2-6 with The Very Best of Prince, Purple Rain, The Hits/The B-Sides, Ultimate and 1999, respectively. That’s the first time five out of the six top-selling albums of the week have been by one artist.

Previously, Jackson claimed six out of the top 10 (twice) in a pair of weeks following his death in 2009. Later that same year, The Beatles notched five out of the top 10 after their catalog was remastered and reissued on CD.

Prince Has Entire Top 10 on Catalog Albums Chart: Prince’s albums also make a historic showing on the latest Top Catalog Albums chart: He owns the entire top 10 (a first) and a record 20 titles on the 50-position list. (Previously, The Beatles held the record for the most simultaneous titles on the chart, with 16 in four weeks back in 2009.)

The nearly 25-year-old Top Catalog Albums chart is also a sales-based list, like the Top Album Sales chart, but the Top Catalog Albums tally is for older titles (generally those released at least 18 months ago).
