Billboard – Chart Date 12/21/13

Pentatonix is riding the Youtube wave and this helps their 2012 PTXmas album top the Digital Albums chart this week. The “Litte Drummer Boy” from that album also tops the Holiday Digital and Holiday 100 charts. Don’t ask me how it can be number 2 on the main Streaming chart (behind “Wrecking Ball”) and not top the Holiday Streaming chart (when it is classified as a Holiday song for the Digital and 100 charts). BB can be odd like that.

Meanwhile, Kelly Clarkson’s “Wrapped in Red” returns to the top of the Holiday Albums chart. Her original Christmas song “Underneath the Tree” tops the Adult Contemporary airplay chart for its second week.

The “Best Song Ever”, from One Direction, is the best song on the Hot Single Sales chart returning to the top for its fifth non-contiguous week.

Mandisa continues her total domination of the Christian AC chart with “Overcomer” spending its 12th week at number 1.

As we all know, there are approximately 60,497 Billboard charts. This is a summary of just some of those charts and how the Idols/AGTers did on them this week. Please feel free to post rankings from your favourite BB chart or any other numbers you care to share. This is the daily numbers thread. The date in the header is the published chart date.

    Also here’s what they said about him in their article about Rock chart
    “2013′s No. 4 Rock Artist, “American Idol” winner Phillip Phillips, stayed strong during the year after winning the series in 2012, with “The World From the Side of the Moon” ranking at No. 4 on the year-end Rock Albums chart. Phillips’ first single, “Home,” is No. 9 on Hot Rock Songs and No. 4 on both Adult Contemporary and Adult Pop Songs, while its successor “Gone, Gone, Gone” is on No. 10 on Hot Rock Songs and No. 12 on Rock Digital Songs.”

    I’m not surprised, iTunes is frozen. Would love to see her take the #1 from that cowboy.

  • taylor

    It’s the surprise attack of the century in the music industry! lol
    No one saw this coming and they’ve kept it from leaking. She pulled a JT x 1,000! And she did all this why she was doing her worldwide tour.

  • taylor

    Oh, I think she will sell more than Garth next week! :)

  • Madilo
  • maymay

    But Its price is $15 with 17 MVs being free.

    Normally, one MV price is $1.99. 17 MVs are around $33. So fans only spend $15 for her $48 album. I think 17 free MVs are a huge draw.

  • wordnerdarchie

    Congratulations to Phillip. He had a very successful year.

    I have a question. What is Adult Pop Songs – is that HAC?

  • Madilo

    yeah it’s HAC
    Adulte alternative is AAA

  • elliegrll

    The videos are are good touch, but people don’t usually buy videos. I think that the surprise factor is having the bigger impact.

  • taylor

    It doesn’t matter what you offer buyers. If they aren’t interested in your product, they aren’t going to pay $15 for a CD, even if you are offering 4 CDs for $15. If buyers don’t want the music, they aren’t going to pay $15 for a bunch of videos.

    Nielsen Reports Top Audio Formats Of 2013

    Nielsen has released its list of the top ten radio format preferences of 2013, though it calls the list its “Top 10 Audio Formats” of the year. The
    company notes that “In 2013 we have seen Country grow among younger listeners and set all-time highs for audience shares across the 48 Nielsen portable people meter (PPM) markets; Pop Contemporary Hit Radio (Pop CHR) mature by increasing its listening share in the 25-54
    demographic; spoken word (News/Talk and Sports) made a big rebound
    during the fall; and both Urban Contemporary and Hot Adult Contemporary had banner years—among their best ever.”

    News/Talk was the #1 format of the year, with a 9.3 percent share of Persons 6+, followed by CHR with an 8.2 percent share. Country was ranked third with a 7.8 share, just ahead of AC with a 7.7 share. Hot AC was ranked #5 with a 5.5 percent share of Persons 6+ listening.

    Classic Hits was the sixth-ranked format with a 5.3 percent share, followed by Urban AC with a five share. Sports was ranked #8 with a 4.3 share, tied with Classic Rock. Mexican Regional was ranked tenth with a 3.9 percent share”

    Are those call-in shows where people whine about the local teams considered talk or sports?

  • ptebwwong

    I think they’re considered sports only. One of the stations in my area talks local sports, but they’re still affiliated or sponsored by big sports companies like CBS Sports. I think that’s the case for other cities, too.

    “Oh and BTW … Beyonce released her 5th album last night, exclusively to iTunes.”

  • standtotheright

    Yes, they’re pressing them now, and trusting that the novelty and high digital-only sales gets the distributors on board quickly. It will likely pay off.

  • standtotheright

    That doesn’t make much sense: If nobody knew about it, then even if fans were limiting their entertainment dollars, it’s not like people were sitting around saying “I’ll skip Gaga and Perry and Cyrus this year just.in.case. Knowles drops a sneak attack album on us.”
    She has a core base of fans who will buy her stuff the instant it drops, no matter who else is (or isn’t) in the marketplace.

  • iani

    Pretty impressive charting list, a good year for P2. Congratulations!

  • mmb

    lol I gotta give Bey’s team credit for getting the media to go along with this “secret” album meme…the album was hardly a secret — the industry and fans have known all year she was working on an album, it was expected to be released a long time ago, her collaborators have spken about it. The only thing that was unknown about the album was when it would be released (oh and no one knew about the videos–maybe it would be more accurate to talk about the secret videos)..but this release strategy was pretty damn brilliant..wait til all the other girls release, and then release with no notice in the middle of the night at the end of a week.They avoided the endless speculation re debut sales, they avoided any negative chatter that a less that blockbuster lead single would have brought. If the album didn’t sell well out of the gate they could just chalk it up to it being itunes only/only a few days of availability/no promo/no single….if it sells well she is a goddess…and they get tons of coverage and excitement with the ninja release. She zigged where Gaga/Katy/Britney zagged. I’ve never particularly enjoyed most of her music, although I like HER as an idea. Just well played all around

  • hayes

    Beyonce and iTunes did good with secret release. All the banners on the iTunes homepage is of her. I am very impressed.

    Meanwhile, Mariah can’t even get the “official” version of her single published right. LOL

  • SaSa8

    Thanks for posting all this BB info. Lots of good stats for Idol alumni. Of course I’m most interested in country so it’s really cool to see of the Top 50 country artists, 2 are from Idol and 2 are from The Voice.

  • Jason Gorny

    Most of the major female pop stars released their album this year. I’m assuming next year we will see a new album from Rihanna, Adele and whoever else ( I can’t think of anyone else. Katy, Miley, Gaga, Britney, Selena, Demi, Ariana, and now Beyonce)

  • Lexie O’Neill

    Thanks for all this work!

  • taylor

    Rihanna will release another album next year , probably next Black Friday. Meanwhile, she will still be everywhere with various collaborations. She’s also the type of artist who can just throw random singles out to the radio and they will bite.

    Adele will be a MAJOR release.
    Then there is always Taylor Swift, who will be another major release next year.

  • CB40

    Thanks for catching that :)

  • maymay

    But if 17 MVs were not free, her album could not sell crazy great right now. It is just like GaGa`s last album was $0.99 at Amazon on the debut week.

  • taylor

    So people are spending $15 to get the MVs? lol

    The videos are a bonus. Most people, even hard core stans don’t purchase videos. WTH do you do with them? Most people just go to Vevo, youtube or the multitudes of media sites to watch them for free.

    If Carly Rae Jepsen came out with an album with 15 bonus videos, do you think 200K would pay $15 for her album? lol It’s not the “value” that is attracting buyers. It’s the hype of the stealth release with the fact that Bey usually sells 350K plus her first week anyhow. It’s the whole package and presentation AND it is Beyoncé.

    Oh, and the album is getting excellent reviews so far. :)

  • maymay

    Beyonce`s last album sold 310k on the debut week. Now HDD predicts her new album could sell 200k in 3 days. I think it should take many factors into account. 17 MVs being free must be one of big factors.

    Yes, Beyonce is a superstar but her last album debut sales were only 310k. So being a superstar is not enough to sell 200k in 3 days like HDD predicts. There are too many factors make the super huge sales.

    Mentioning Carly Rae Jepsen is meaningless because she is not a superstar. I guess if Tyalor Swift releases her next album with 17 free MVs, she could sell near between 1.5 and 2m on the debut week more than her current album did with 1.2m.

  • elliegrll

    “Only” 300K? When did that number become a bad thing? And why does it mean that Beyonce couldn’t move 200K in just 3 days?

    Many people believe that the album is overpriced. Most cds don’t cost $15. If we were not so close to Christmas, and the release of the cd wasn’t such a big splash, I think that people would be grumbling about the price, and they would bring up the number of videos as a reason why the cd costs too much.

  • taylor

    The surprise release and hype, where social media jumped all over it, is what is driving the sales. People aren’t going to pay $15 for a bunch of videos. They want this music or they want to be part of the music moment of the year and want to be able to participate in discussions that are currently all over social media and every media site.

    That’s what is producing these numbers for this album so quickly. It was a perfect marketing plan and people want to be a part of it.

    Everyone heard about Bow Down and knew an album was in the works, but I think people really expected her to sit out Q4 and promote once the current tour cycle was over next spring.

    I agree that it was smart strategy but I don’t think people were buying into a meme to help her with it.

    Beyonce Bound for No. 1 As Sales Soar Past 400,000

    Beyonce’s self-titled surprise release, which hit iTunes exclusively on Thursday evening (9 p.m. PT), has now sold over 430,000 units in just over one day, guaranteeing it the top slot on the Billboard 200 once that chart’s top 10 is revealed mid-week.
    As reported yesterday, “Beyonce” shifted slightly over 80,000 in the three hours from 9 p.m. PT to midnight on Thursday evening, putting her Friday sales at roughly 350,000. With two more days left in the sales tracking week, the title could sell over 600,000 before the buzzer sounds.

    My God, Bey is killing it :)

    Updates from HDD

    THE BEY UPDATE: The Beyoncé sneak attack on iTunes has become the story of the industry and possibly a game-changing new strategy to sell records. The early release as an iTunes exclusive, with no tracks for sale and no Spotify to bastardize sales the “visual album” has sold approximately 500k album downloads in its first 48 hours, with no end in sight and will easily debut #1. What was looking like a pretty dull Christmas release season has been hit by a bolt of lightning. The surprise release has been heralded by social media everywhere and covered by every major television news network. She has created her own publicity and the project reached its audience through word of mouth–the most powerful of all sales tools. Stay tuned for continuous updates. Kudos to Team Columbia and Team Beyoncé on what may end up being the most talked about event of 2013. (12/14p)

    Bey’s making history i guess :)

    209. Phillip Phillips – Gone, Gone, Gone
    234. Phillip Phillips – Home

    The 2 singles are so close lol

  • Madilo

    Cassedee’s so close to top 10, maybe tomorrow or tuesday she’ll make it there ? She’s doing great right ? What was your prediction ?

  • elliegrll

    I don’t think it’s game changing, since the strategy wouldn’t work for 99% of the people who release music. People have to care enough in order to buy an album that hasn’t received any promotion.

  • Madilo

    Didn’t other artists use this strategy too (surprise release) ?

  • elliegrll

    Using the strategy and getting these results are two different things. The bulk of an album’s budget is spent on promo. Most artists wouldn’t release an album without having some advance promo, or without releasing a single at least a month in advance of the album’s release.
