Taylor Swift, Pentatonix Top U.S. Album Chart Ahead of Holiday Sales


Taylor Swift, Pentatonix Top U.S. Album Chart Ahead of Holiday Sales

Still tracking big physical sales, Taylor Swift’s “1989” has captured a fifth non-consecutive week at No.

1 on the U.S. album chart amid relatively static pre-Christmas sales.

Swift’s Big Machine mega-hit sold another 274,000 total copies (off 19%), according to Nielsen Music data for the week ending Dec. 7, with 230,000 of those units physical sales. (Last week, Nielsen began ranking albums with a formula surveying physical albums, track-equivalent albums and streams.) The release has sold 2.7 million physical copies in six weeks.

A cappella group Pentatonix’s holiday hit “That’s Christmas to Me” (RCA) also maintained its No. 2 slot for another week, shifting a total of 221,000 (down 4%).

The frame’s top debut was Aussie hard rock AC/DC’s new “Rock or Bust” (Columbia), which claimed No. 3 on the list with a 174,000-unit bow. It is the act’s 15th U.S. studio album, and its first since “Black Ice” reached No. 1 here in 2008. It is their eighth album to reach the top 10 during a 40-year career.

The chart success caps a difficult year for AC/DC that saw the retirement of founding rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young due to illness and the arrest of drummer Phil Rudd on murder-for-hire charges.

The week’s only other debut in the top 10 was Mary J. Blige’s “The London Sessions” (Capitol), which entered at No. 9 with 57,000 sold. The R&B singer’s collection features collaborations with such noted U.K. talent as Sam Smith and Emeli Sande.

Also occupying top-10 slots were Smith’s “In the Lonely Hour” (No. 4, 81,000 sold, down 35%), One Direction’s “Four” (No. 5, 74,000, off 40%), Idina Menzel’s “Holiday Wishes” (No. 6, 66,000, up 14%), Michael Buble’s “Christmas” (No. 7, 66,000, up 18%), Garth Brooks’ “Man Against Machine” (No. 8, 57,000, down 10%) and the “Frozen” soundtrack (No. 10, 43,000, off 39%). The only titles to show gains this week were the holiday titles by Menzel and Buble.
