Quantcast
Maroon 5 gets a particularly nice SPS boost, while Mark Ronson and Hozier materialize on the list thanks to their hot tracks.

YOUR TOP 15

Six debuts land in next week’s Top 15 on both the Album and SPS charts, including the splashy bow from rockers Fall Out Boy, who are set to follow Meghan Trainor's similar-sized debut last week; both releases are big retail news in the typically quiet month of January. Here’s how the album side looks headed into the weekend:

*Fall Out Boy (DCD2/Island) 190-200k
Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 80-90k
Meghan Trainor (Epic) 50-55k
*Joey Bada$$ (Cinematic) 50-55k
*Marilyn Manson (Loma Vista/Concord) 40-45k
*2015 Grammy Nominees (RCA) 40-45k
*The Decemberists (Capitol) 40-45k
Kidz Bop Kids (Razor & Tie) 40-45k
*Lupe Fiasco (Atlantic) 30-35k
Nicki Minaj (YMCMB/Republic) 30-35k
Ed Sheeran (Atlantic) 30-35k
Sam Smith (Capitol) 24-27k
J. Cole (Roc Nation/Columbia) 21-24k
Guardians of the Galaxy (Hollywood) 21-24k
Maroon 5 (222/Interscope) 15-18k

The SPS (Sales Plus Streaming) breakdown finds the week's top sellers adding significantly to their totals thanks to single sales (oh, and streaming), with Maroon 5 getting a particularly nice boost; Mark Ronson and Hozier materialize on the list thanks to their hot tracks. Here's what our gerbil-powered algorithm spit out:

*Fall Out Boy (DCD2/Island) 220-230k
Taylor Swift (Big Machine) 110-115k
Meghan Trainor (Epic) 80-85k
Ed Sheeran (Atlantic) 65-70k
*Joey Bada$$ (Cinematic) 55-60k
Nicki Minaj (YMCMB/Republic) 50-55k
