Honestly I couldn't be more surprised, was sure Florida-Georgia Line had an easy #1 this week??? Instead they miss out on their second chart-topper, falling 4000 short of Barbra Streisand, who earns her 11th number-one. Plenty of interesting facts in the article, including that her #1 albums have spanned over 50 years and she's the only artist to have ever achieved that. Britney is #3 with Glory, beating Britney Jean's #4 peak. Britney Jean opened with 107K sales; Glory debuts with 111K overall but only 88K in proper sales. Further down, Carly Rae's Emotion Side B debuts at #62!

Barbra Streisand Earns 11th No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart With 'Encore'
9/4/2016 by Keith Caulfield

Barbra Streisand achieves her 11th No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as her latest release, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, enters atop the list.

Her newest leader extends her record for the most No. 1 albums among women, and ties her with Bruce Springsteen for the third-most among all acts. The only artists with more No. 1s are The Beatles, with a record 19 chart-toppers, and Jay Z, with 13.

Among women, Streisand outpaces Madonna, the runner-up with eight Billboard 200 No. 1s.

Encore was released on Aug. 26 through Columbia Records, and starts with 149,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 1, according to Nielsen Music. That’s a stronger-than-expected launch for the set, which was forecast by industry sources to start in the No. 2 slot, behind Florida Georgia Line’s new Dig Your Roots. The latter album enters in the runner-up position, with 145,000 units.

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 Sept. 17-dated chart (where Encore debuts at No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Wednesday, Sept. 7 (one day later than normal, due to the Sept. 5 Labor Day holiday in the U.S).

Encore follows Streisand’s previous No. 1 albums: Partners (2014), Love Is the Answer (2009), Higher Ground (1997), Back to Broadway (1993), The Broadway Album (1986), Guilty (1980), Barbra Streisand’s Greatest Hits, Volume 2 (1979), A Star Is Born (1977), The Way We Were (1974), and People (1964).

Further, Streisand surpasses her own record for the longest span between No. 1s on the Billboard 200. Encore arrives 51 years, 10 months and 17 days after her first No. 1, People, spent its initial week at No. 1 (Oct. 31, 1964). People ruled the tally for five consecutive weeks. Streisand previously set the record for the longest span between No. 1s when she topped the chart in 2014 with Partners -- 49 years, 11 months and 14 days after People.

One more fun fact: Streisand continues to be the only act to have achieved No. 1 albums in the last six decades -- the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s and 2010s.

Encore is an all-star collaborative affair, and pairs Streisand with a range of actors to cover songs from Broadway. For example, Anne Hathaway and Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) team up with Streisand for “At the Ballet,” from A Chorus Line; Jamie Foxx guests on “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” (from The Sound of Music) and Melissa McCarthy duets on “Anything You Can Do” (from Annie Get Your Gun).

Nearly all of Encore’s first-week unit total was comprised of traditional album sales -- 148,000. And of that figure, physical album sales (CDs and vinyl LPs) equated to 126,000 -- the largest sales week for a physical album in 2016. Previously, Blink-182’s California held the biggest physical week for an album this year, when it started with 107,000 sold.

Encore’s physical sales were bolstered by the availability of a deluxe edition of the set sold through Target, which came with four bonus solo Streisand performances.

In addition, the album benefits from a promotion with Streisand’s recent concert tour, where tickets purchased online were bundled with an offer for a CD copy of Encore.

For ticket/album bundle offers where the purchase price of a ticket includes an album, only those albums that are actively redeemed by a customer count towards the charts. (The redemption rate is usually low for these offers, but can vary depending on the type of artist and how effectively they promote the ticket/album offer to their fans.)

Streisand is one of many acts that have employed a ticket/album bundle offer to sell music. Others include Kanye West (who sold The Life of Pablo with tickets to his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show), Justin Bieber, Duran Duran, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Michael Buble, Cyndi Lauper, Tom Petty, Bon Jovi and many more.

Streisand supported Encore by doing a number of big media appearances, including a sit-down chat and two performances on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Aug. 25. She was joined by one of her Encore partners, Alec Baldwin, on the show, and also did a humorous duet with Fallon (who impersonated Donald Trump). In addition, Streisand was interviewed on NPR’s Weekend Edition (Aug. 20), CBS Sunday Morning (Aug. 28) and CNN (Aug. 29).

Florida Georgia Line, Britney Spears & Young Thug Debut in Top 10 on Billboard 200
9/4/2016 by Keith Caulfield

Entertainment icon Barbra Streisand notches her 11th No. 1 album on the latest Billboard 200 chart with Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, while Florida Georgia Line, Britney Spears and Young Thug also score top 10 debuts.

Streisand’s all-star collaborative album Encore enters atop the tally with 149,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 1, according to Nielsen Music.

As previously reported, Encore extends her record for the most No. 1 albums among women, and ties her with Bruce Springsteen for the third-most among all acts. The only artists with more No. 1s are The Beatles, with a record 19 chart-toppers, and Jay Z, with 13.

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 Sept. 17-dated chart (where Encore debuts at No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Wednesday, Sept. 7 (one day later than normal, due to the Sept. 5 Labor Day holiday in the U.S).

At No. 2 on the new Billboard 200, country duo Florida Georgia Line bows with Dig Your Roots (145,000 units; 126,000 in traditional album sales). It’s the third top five-charting album for the pair, which saw its last set, 2014’s Anything Goes, open at No. 1 with 197,000 copies sold. The duo’s debut full-length album, Here’s to the Good Times, debuted at No. 10 in 2012, and rose to its No. 4 peak the following year.

The lead single from Dig Your Roots, "H.O.L.Y.," has led the Hot Country Songs chart for 17 weeks and counting, tying for the third-longest reign in the chart's history; FGL holds the mark with "Cruise" (24 weeks at No. 1 in 2012-13).

Pop diva Britney Spears collects her 10th top five Billboard 200 album, as her latest studio effort, Glory, enters at No. 3 (111,000 units; 88,000 in traditional album sales). Spears’ last studio set, 2013’s Britney Jean, debuted and peaked at No. 4 with 107,000 sold. The new album was led by the single “Make Me,” featuring G-Eazy, which has so far peaked at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 20 on the Pop Songs airplay chart.

With Streisand, Florida Georgia Line and Spears each bowing with at least 100,000 units, it’s the first time that at least three new releases have launched with more than 100,000 since November of 2015. In the tracking week ending Nov. 19, 2015, Justin Bieber’s Purpose launched at No. 1 with 649,000 units, followed by the arrivals of One Direction’s Made in the A.M. (No. 2 with 460,000), Logic’s The Incredible True Story (No. 3 with 135,000) and Jeezy’s Church in These Streets (No. 4 with 107,000).

Back on the new Billboard 200, Drake’s former No. 1 Views slips two rungs to No. 4 (72,000 units; down 7 percent), Frank Ocean’s Blonde falls from No. 1 to No. 5 in its second week (67,000; down 78 percent) and the soundtrack to Suicide Squad dips 3-6 (63,000; down 17 percent).

Beyonce’s Lemonade leaps back into the top 10 -- rising 13-7 -- following her performance and multiple wins on the MTV Video Music Awards (Aug. 28). The diva performed a number of songs from Lemonade and she won video of the year for the album’s title track video. The Lemonade album sold 26,000 copies during the week -- up 106 percent.

At No. 8, rapper Young Thug clocks his third top 40 debut on the Billboard 200 of 2016 as Jeffery starts with 37,000 units (18,000 in traditional album sales). He previously notched a top 10 set with Slime Season 3 (No. 7 on the April 16-dated chart) and another top 40 title with I’m Up (No. 22 on Feb. 27).

Rihanna’s Anti moves 8-9 in the latest top 10 (32,000 units; up 18 percent) after her multiple performances on the VMAs, where she was honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Twenty One Pilots close out the top 10, as the duo’s Blurryface falls 6-10 with 30,000 units (down 8 percent).
