Quantcast
The chart’s top double-digit gainer is Atlantic’s Footloose soundtrack, which moves #16-14, +13%, followed by A&M/Octone act Maroon 5, climbing #37-27, +10%, thanks in large part to NBC’s The Voice-spawned “Moves Like Jagger” smash.

The chart’s top double-digit gainer is Atlantic’s Footloose soundtrack, which moves #16-14, +13%, followed by A&M/Octone act Maroon 5, climbing #37-27, +10%, thanks in large part to NBC’s The Voice-spawned “Moves Like Jagger” smash.

This week’s Monday releases include Capitol/EMI’s Coldplay, 19/RCA’s Kelly Clarkson, Show Dog’s Toby Keith, Reprise’s Michael Buble Christmas album, MCA Nashville’s Vince Gill and Anti-’s Tom Waits.
