Today’s thread is brought to you by the numbers 8 and 10.
We see a familiar face on top of the Billboard 200 this week. The Soundtrack from “Frozen” dominated the Billboard chart for 13 weeks in 2014 and now its sequel “Frozen 2” has arrived at the top. The soundtrack moved 80K equivalent albums and the movie has dominated the top of the movie box office for the last three weekends.
Perennial Christmas favourites Pentatonix are back in the top 10. “The Best of Pentatonix Christmas” clocks in at number 8 (lw 18) and it is their 10th to 10 album. It sold 43K equivalent albums with 20K of those being traditional album sales.
Over on the Hot 100, the Weeknd is back on the top with “Heartless”. This is his fourth number 1.
