The Chainsmokers' 'Memories' Album Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart
By Keith Caulfield | April 16, 2017 3:00 PM EDT

The Chainsmokers bow at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with their debut full-length album, Memories… Do Not Open. The EDM duo's set earned 221,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 13, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 166,000 were in traditional album sales.

Memories’ sales launch was powered by a concert ticket/album bundle sale redemption promotion with the duo’s tour, which kicked off on April 13 in Miami. The ticket/album offer was also included with select dates of the act’s residency at the XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas.

Memories is the first album to simultaneously lead both the Billboard 200 and the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart in nearly three-and-a-half years. The last to do so was Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP, when it debuted at No. 1 on both tallies dated Nov. 30, 2013 (with 258,000 copies sold in its first week).

Memories contains the Billboard Hot 100-charting hits “Paris,” “Something Just Like This” (with Coldplay) and “The One.”

The Chainsmokers previously charted two EPs on the Billboard 200: 2016’s Collage, which peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200; and Bouquet, which hit No. 31 in January of 2016, following its release the previous year.

Memories bumps Drake’s More Life from the top slot on the Billboard 200, as it slips to No. 2 with 108,000 units (down 21 percent) in its fourth chart week. The set spent its first three weeks atop the tally. Ed Sheeran’s fellow former No. 1 ÷ (Divide) dips from No. 2 to No. 3 in its sixth chart week, earning 70,000 units (down 13 percent).

Vocal group Pentatonix claims its seventh top 10 album as PTX Vol. IV: Classics starts at No. 4 with 54,000 units (50,000 in traditional album sales). The a cappella quintet previously hit the top 10 with A Pentatonix Christmas (No. 1 in January), its self-titled album (No. 1; 2015), That’s Christmas to Me (No. 2; 2014), PTX: Vol. III (No. 5; 2014), PTX: Vol. II (No. 10; 2013) and PTXmas (No. 7; 2013).

The new Classics effort includes renditions of familiar favorites like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Over the Rainbow” and the group’s Grammy Award-winning redux of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” (alongside Parton herself).

Joey Bada$$ bows at No. 5 with All-Amerikkkan Bada$$, earning 51,000 units its first week (28,000 in traditional album sales). It’s the second top 10 set for the rapper, who previously hit the top five with B4.DA.$$ in 2015, which debuted and peaked at No. 5 with 58,000 units (54,000 in sales).

Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic falls two slots to No. 6 (45,000 units; down 5 percent), the soundtrack to Moana slips 6-7 with 43,000 units (down 2 percent), Kodak Black’s Painting Pictures descends 3-8 in its second week with 39,000 units (down 46 percent) and Future’s self-titled album moves 8-9 with 38,000 units (up less than 1 percent).

Father John Misty closes out the top 10, as the singer-songwriter earns his highest-charting album yet -- and first top 10 -- with Pure Comedy. It bows at No. 10 with 35,000 units (33,000 in traditional album sales -- his best sales week yet). The artist’s previous high on the chart came in 2015 with I Love You, Honeybear, which debuted and peaked at No. 17 with 30,000 units (28,000 in album sales).

Billboard 200 Chart Moves: Twenty One Pilots' 'Blurryface' Hits 100th Consecutive Week on List
4/21/2017 by Keith Caulfield

On the latest Billboard 200 albums chart (dated April 29), The Chainsmokers’ Memories… Do No Open, bows at No. 1, granting the duo its first chart topper. The set starts with 221,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 13, according to Nielsen Music. Elsewhere in the top 10, Pentatonix, Joey Bada$$ and Father John Misty all start in the region.

Now, let’s take a closer look at some of the action on the latest Billboard 200 chart:

— Soundtrack, Moana - No. 7 — The soundtrack to the hit film has now sold more than a half-million copies in the U.S., as it shifted another 24,000 copies in the week ending April 13, according to Nielsen Music. That brings its cumulative sales sum to 509,000. The set was released on Nov. 18, 2016 through Walt Disney Records.

Moana is the third soundtrack to surpass a half-million in sales in 2017, following Suicide Squad and Trolls. Suicide Squad passed the 500,000 mark in the week ending Jan. 26 (its sales now stand at 548,000), while Trolls crossed the half-million threshold in the week ending March 16 (its sales are currently at 573,000).

— Twenty One Pilots, Blurryface - No. 27 — Twenty One Pilots’ former No. 1 Blurryface celebrates its 100th consecutive week on the tally. The set climbs 29-27 with 16,000 units (up less than 1 percent). In total, Blurryface has earned 2.9 million units, with 1.5 million in traditional album sales. The set launched four hits on the Alternative Songs chart (all of which reached the top two) and scored two top 10s on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Stressed Out” (No. 2) and “Ride” (No. 5).

Blurryface was the act’s first No. 1 (and first top 10 effort), and launched atop the tally dated June 6, 2015. The album has never fallen out of the top 40 during its entire chart run, and has only gone as low as No. 36 (Dec. 12, 2015).

— Joey Feek, If Not For You - No. 50 — The late Joey Feek — of the husband and wife duo Joey + Rory — makes her solo Billboard chart debut, as her posthumous album If Not For You bows at No. 50 on the Billboard 200 and No. 6 on Top Country Albums. The archival set (its songs were recorded in 2005) earned 11,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 13. Of that sum, 10,000 were in traditional album sales, according to Nielsen Music. Feek died March 4, 2016 of cancer.

— Deep Purple, Infinite – No. 105 — The band nets its highest-charting set in 26 years, as Infinite bows at No. 105 (7,000 units, nearly all from album sales). The act last went higher with the No. 87-peaking Slaves and Masters in 1990.

— Yo-Yo Ma / Chris Thile / Edgar Meyer, Bach Trios – No. 141 — As Yo-Yo Ma debuts at No. 141 with his new collaborative effort Bach Trios (with Chris Thile and Edgar Meyer), the set also hits No. 1 on the Traditional Classical Albums chart. In doing so, Ma notches his record-extending 15th No. 1 on the list (with 5,000 copies sold).

— Michelle Branch, Hopeless Romantic - No. 143 — Michelle Branch is back on the Billboard 200 after a long absence as Hopeless Romantic bows at No. 143. The set, her debut for Verve and first full-length solo album since 2003’s Hotel Paper, launches with 5,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 13, according to Nielsen Music. Nearly all of that sum was traditional album sales.

Branch last appeared on the tally as a soloist with Hotel Paper, which spent 33 weeks on the list in 2003 and 2004, debuting and peaking at No. 2. As half of country duo The Wreckers (alongside Jessica Harp), the pair hit No. 14 in 2006 with Stand Still, Look Pretty. Four years later, Branch released the country EP Everything Comes and Goes, which missed the Billboard 200 but reached No. 35 on Top Country Albums.

— ABBA, Gold – Greatest Hits – No. 200 — ABBA best-of Gold - Greatest Hits bounces back onto the chart (No. 200) for the first time in nearly three years (May 17, 2014; No. 176). The sturdy-selling collection has sold 5.7 million copies and is the 19th-biggest-selling greatest-hits album in the Nielsen Music era (which began in 1991). The top-selling hits package during that span is The Beatles’ 1, with 12.8 million sold.
