Sales News – Week Ending 01/19/17

British Indie Pop band The xx are looking to have the best selling album of the week as they debut their third studio album “I See You”. The Weeknd’s streaming numbers will probably propel his “Starboy” album to number one on the combined chart. When was the last time the top 2 albums on the chart were from artists that started their names with a “The”. In a way, it is the top 3 numbers because “La” is the female French version of “The”.

Also new this week is the Now Workout 2017 compilation album. It features “Work from Home” by Fifth Harmony and it is opening at 11 in sales, 43 in combined. Carrie Underwood has a duet on Keith Urban’s “Ripcord” at 13th/24th. Is that duet what they are set to perform on the Grammys this year? Kelly Clarkson also has a track on the “Hamilton Mixed Tape” at 31st.

Grace Vanderwaal has the best selling album from a reality single competitor. “Perfectly Imperfect” clocks in at 20th, but her streaming numbers are low so she does not make top 50 on the combined chart. Melanie Martinez just keeps going and going. Her “Cry Baby” is 44th in sales and 36th in combined.
