CHART STORY: DELTA DOES IT

Glassnote’s Mumford & Sons have scored their third chart-topping debut, as Delta bows at #1 on the HITS Top 50 with more than 231k.

The Greatest Showman Reimagined
(Atlantic) lands at #2, moving close to 89k, and Michael Bublé’s Love (Reprise) comes in at #3 with approximately 87k. The fourth debut to make this week’s Top 5 belongs to Epic’s Mariah Carey, whose Caution arrives at #5 with 51k.

As for the remaining noteworthy bows, Anderson .Paak’s Oxnard (Aftermath/12Tone) can be found at #11 with 40k, and at #14, Mark Knopfler’s Down the Road Wherever (Blue Note) has 32k.

And since Santa’s sleigh is just around the bend, a few yuletide sets see increases. Pentatonix’s latest, Christmas Is Here! (RCA), flies #44-20, tacking on 26k. Meanwhile, Michael Bublé’s 2011 staple—the aptly titled Christmas—re-enters at #29, snagging another 21k or so for Reprise.

When it comes to marketshare, UMG is #1 with 60%, WMG follows with 22% and SME is #3 with 17%, while the indies claim 1%.

Given the holiday, there’s not much in the way of just-released projects this week, aside from a new one from Atlantic’s Rita Ora.

Also given the holiday, as warned before, you should expect a greater margin of error than usual. And we swear that has nothing to do with the buckets of wine we’ve been swimming in over the past 72 hours.
