Sales Numbers – Week Ending 03/23/2017

Drake is set to open at number one on both the sales and combined charts with “More Life”. The former “Degrassi” star has made a habit of opening big and having strong streaming numbers. Also debuting this week are Rick Ross (Hip Hop), Elevation Worship (Christian) and Spoon (Indie).

Our reality singing competitors show up on various albums. X-Factor alumni Niall Horan and Fifth Harmony have tracks on NOW 61 at 16 in sales while Zayn is on the “Fifty Shades of Darker” soundtrack at 43/23. Tori Kelly is also on a soundtrack – “Sing” – at 13th in sales. Finally, we have Carrie Underwood dieting with Keith Urban on his “Ripcord” album at 42/42 (answering the question to life, the universe and everything).
