Even with the SNL promo, I never would've predicted this many sales for A Tribe Called Quest! It's their first album in 18 years and only their second #1, the first being 20 years ago. Leonard Cohen gets a new peak, You Want It Darker debuted at #10 three weeks ago. Sting gets his third #9 album, he's also had three #2 albums but no #1s. And Emeli Sande falls one place short of the top 40, plus falling short of the #28 peak of her debut album.

A Tribe Called Quest Returns to No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart After 20-Year Wait
11/20/2016 by Keith Caulfield

Hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest tops the Billboard 200 albums chart for the first time in more than 20 years, as the act’s new album, We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service, debuts at No. 1. The set, which was released on Nov. 11 through Epic Records, earned 135,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Nov. 17, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 112,000 were in traditional 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 Dec. 3-dated chart (where A Tribe Called Quest starts at No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Nov. 22.

We Got It From Here is A Tribe Called Quest’s second No. 1, following Beats, Rhymes and Life, which topped the list for one week on the chart dated Aug. 17, 1996 — 20 years and three months ago. That gap between No. 1s is the longest for a hip-hop act in the chart’s history. Previously, Jeezy —just two weeks ago — held the longest wait between No. 1s among hip-hop acts, with eight years and two months between The Recession in September of 2008 and Trap or Die 3 this month.

The last act — among all genres of music — to wait longer between No. 1s was Lionel Richie in 2012. That year, he reached No. 1 with Tuskegee, 25 years and six months after he last topped the chart with 1986’s Dancing on the Ceiling. (The longest wait overall between No. 1s — among living acts — belongs to Bob Dylan, who went 30 years and six months between Desire in 1976 and Modern Times in 2006. The longest wait among all acts, living or dead, is owned by Ray Charles. There was a 42-year and four-month gap between Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music in 1962 and Genius Loves Company in 2005.)

It’s worth noting that the first rap/hip-hop album to lead the Billboard 200 was Beastie Boys’ Licensed to Ill, which reached No. 1 almost 30 years ago, on March 7, 1987. Beastie Boys also clocked the 10th No. 1 rap album, Ill Communication, in 1994. A Tribe Called Quest’s previous No. 1, Beats, Rhymes and Life, was the 20th hip-hop album to top the Billboard 200.

We Got It From Here is billed as A Tribe Called Quest’s final album. It is the group’s first studio release since 1998’s The Love Movement and the first since the death of the act’s Phife Dawg in March.

Leonard Cohen Remembered on Billboard 200, Sting Debuts in Top 10
11/21/2016 by Keith Caulfield

As A Tribe Called Quest bows at No. 1 on the new Billboard 200 albums chart with We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service — marking the act’s first No. 1 in over 20 years — the rest of the top 10 gets shaken up by holiday tunes, a late legend, and a returning rock icon.

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 Dec. 3-dated chart (where A Tribe Called Quest starts at No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Nov. 22.

At No. 2 on the new Billboard 200, Penatonix’s A Pentatonix Christmas hits a new high, rising from No. 4 to No. 2. The set earned 56,000 units in the week ending Nov. 20, according to Nielsen Music (up 21 percent) and moved 50,000 in traditional album sales (up 21 percent).

The vocal group has now tallied three top two-charting albums: the new set, their self-titled chart-topper from 2015, and then That’s Christmas to Me, which peaked in the runner-up slot in 2014.

The Trolls soundtrack holds at No. 3 with 48,000 units (up 2 percent), while Rae Sremmurd’s Sremmlife 2 climbs one notch to No. 4 — a new high — with 43,000 units (up 9 percent). The album is now the duo’s highest charting set, surpassing the No. 5 peak of their debut effort, 2015’s Sremmlife.

Drake’s Views rises three spots to No. 5, with 32,000 units (though it’s down 2 percent).

The original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton jumps 9-6 with 30,000 units (down less than 1 percent). Any impact that the album may receive from the news of vice president-elect Mike Pence’s visit to the show on Nov. 18 will not be felt until next week’s chart (reflecting the tracking week of Nov. 18-25).

The late Leonard Cohen is remembered on the chart, as his most recent studio album, You Want It Darker, flies from No. 48 to No. 7 with 30,000 units (up 197 percent) and 28,000 in traditional album sales (up 188 percent). Cohen died on Nov. 7, but his death was not announced until Nov. 10.

You Want It Darker debuted at No. 10 on the Nov. 12-dated list. It marked his second top 10 effort, following 2012’s Old Ideas, which reached No. 3. Just outside the top 10, Cohen’s greatest hits album The Essential Leonard Cohen, debuts at No. 13 with 20,000 units (up 686 percent) and with 11,000 albums sold (up 588 percent).

The Chainsmokers’ Collage descends two spots to No. 8 with 29,000 units (down 25 percent). The bulk of its units were generated by streaming equivalent album units: 17,000 – thanks to the five-song EP’s multiple previously released hits (including “Closer” and “Don’t Let Me Down”).

Sting notches his 11th solo top 10 album, as his new studio effort, 57th & 9th, bows at No. 9 with 28,000 units (27,000 in traditional album sales). He last visited the top 10 with 2010’s Symphonicities, which debuted and peaked at No. 6. Sting claimed his first solo top 10 with his debut effort, The Dream of the Blue Turtles, which spent six weeks lodged at No. 2 (its peak) in 1985.

Of course, Sting also racked up a string of hit albums with his band The Police: the group scored four top 10s, including the blockbuster No. 1 set Synchronicity (which ruled for 17 weeks in 1983).

Rounding out the new top 10 on the Billboard 200 is the Suicide Squad soundtrack, which ascends 12-10 with 24,000 units (down 3 percent).

Just outside the top 10 is Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood’s new holiday collaboration album, Christmas Together, which debuts at No. 11 with 21,000 units (essentially all from traditional album sales). The set also launches at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart, giving the Brooks his 15th No. 1 on the tally, and Yearwood her fourth. The album came out on the same day (Nov. 11) as Brooks’ new 10-CD box set, which was exclusively available through Target for $29.99. The set is ineligible to chart on Nielsen and Billboard’s charts, as its price falls below the minimum required price to chart ($3.49 for a single disc, or $3.49 times the amount of discs in a multi-disc box set, in the title’s first four weeks of release).

Makes me so happy to see A Tribe Called Quest get the #1. It's a perfect swansong for an iconic group.

I'm surprised there's no mention of Bon Jovi's comical fall from number 1. 42 places must be a new record surely? That's outrageous. That drop in sales must be in the high 90%.

Oops! It plummeted so far that I didn't even notice it laugh.gif laugh.gif Yes, that's a new record - beating Incubus' 'Light Grenades' which dropped 1-37 in December 2006.

Yup, she had two top 40 hits in 2013 (Next To Me and Beneath Your Beautiful) and nothing else. Still unknown by the general public.

Yeah, I hadn't realised she's 'only' sold 280k copies of 'Our Version Of Events', so that opening for a hit-less follow-up isn't surprising. I'd thought she'd made a bigger dent stateside, I guess mainly due to how inescapable she was over here for such a sustained period.
