New-release marketshare

NEW-RELEASE MARKETSHARE: The recent pattern continues this week, as resurgent Columbia continues to build momentum. Stringer’s posse is led by Roc Nation’s J. Cole, who leapfrogs to #1 in week three, moving another 55.7k units and passing #6 IDJ’s Kanye West, whose Yeezus was released the same day, in sales to date, 437k to 432k. Daft Punk (#7, 28k) gives Columbia a pair of Top 10 albums. Republic is cruising with #5 Florida Georgia Line (30.8k) and comeback geezers Black Sabbath (#14, 16.9k). KidinaKorner/Interscope’s Imagine Dragons pace IGA, as has been the case for months now. The next five label groups are closely packed on this traditionally light, holiday-dominated week. But you’re gonna like how next week looks; we guarantee it. (7/10a)
