TOP 50 CHART: SUMMONING UP COURAGE

Sony Canada/Columbia star Celine Dion has scored her fifth #1 with Courage—her first album since ending her Las Vegas residency, and first English-language album in six years. The set debuted on our Top 50 Chart with 120k.

Tory Lanez’s Chixtape 5 (Mad Love/Interscope) was the second-biggest debut, arriving at #2 with 84k.

Other key new releases included Lady Antebellum’s Ocean (Big Machine/BMLG)—#11, 30k—Lil Peep’s EVERYBODY’S EVERYTHING (Columbia)—#13, 27k—and Walt Disney’s Frozen 2 soundtrack—#15, 26k.

Following the release of a vinyl edition, as well as a Shawn Mendes remix of her album’s title track, Taylor Swift’s Lover (Republic) returns to the Top 5, tacking on 60k.

Meanwhile, Pentatonix’s The Best of Pentatonix Christmas (RCA) zooms #28-18 with 19k as Ol’ Saint Nick approaches. Mariah Carey’s Merry Christmas also sees a significant boost, as it busts back into the Top 30.

When it comes to marketshare, UMG leads with 56% and SME follows with 32%, while WMG claims 12% and the indies nab 1%.

Streeting this week are projects by Broken Bow’s Jason Aldean, Ten Thousand’s Trippie Redd, Parlophone/Atlantic’s Coldplay, Capitol’s Beck, RCA’s Davido and HAFE/Virgin EMI's Timi Dakolo, along with the final recordings of Leonard Cohen—out via Columbia/Legacy—and Decca’s Bing at Christmas, a new release of vintage Bing Crosby vocals and fresh recordings from the London Symphony Orchestra.

The latter is what we’ll be listening to while we festively hit a bong filled with eggnog. ‘Tis the season.
