Drake and 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Top Albums Sales Charts; Sam Smith, Beck and '2015 Grammy Nominees' Gets Award Show Boost

Buzz 09:26AM EDT

Thanks to a week featuring at least two huge debuts, the album charts this week aren't too far from what the Billboard 200 reflected. Drake starts out with the biggest release of the year thus far, and in fact the biggest release of the last year (excluding a certain Taylor Swift). If You're Reading This It's Too Late sold 497,500 copies during its first three days of availability, suggesting that it could have racked up even more if the emcee had settled for a more traditional release date.READ MORE

Now 53 Outsells Taylor Swift, Becomes First Record to Top Albums Chart but Not Billboard 200; Kid Ink Cracks Top 10

Buzz 09:02AM EDT

The new Billboard 200 format has been hot on its incorporation of streams and single downloads into arranging the most relevant chart in music, yet the folks at Billboard failed to notice one thing this past week: For the first time ever, the top of the 200 was different than the album at the top of the albums chart. Although Taylor Swift and 1989 was no. 1 on the chart everyone was watching, it only sold 77,000 actual copies. That's a boost from last week, but not enough to take no. 1 on the albums chart from Now 53, which sold 98,000 copies.READ MORE

Taylor Swift and 1989 is at no. 1 in the Billboard 200 for the 11th time, tying Fearless for the performer's most weeks at the top of the charts with one album. The record shifted 108,000 equivalent units, a slight uptick from last week. 1989 is one of four albums that have spent at least ten weeks at no. 1 since 2010, the others being Fearless, the Frozen soundtrack as well as Adele's 21. Swift's album is followed this week by Now 53, the newest edition of the hits collection, at no. 2 with 99,000 units moved.READ MORE
