TOP 15: SALES AND SPS

Meghan and Taylor Lead on Both Sides


YOUR TOP 15:
Sony dominates the new releases this week with five debuts in the Top 15 on both the Sales and SPS charts. Epic’s Meghan Trainor takes the top spot this week, likely just missing 200k in sales. She will, however, be among the top five largest January sales weeks going back to at least 2006. Another Sony act, Sia, makes an appearance in our SPS projections this week. As this week’s SNL musical guest, we’ve built in an expected bump in weekend track sales and streams. Here’s how it looks headed into the weekend:
