TOP 100 WEEKLY MARKETSHARE DECKED WITH TINSEL

Music took a backseat to Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the creative preparation of Thanksgiving leftovers during the week ending 12/3—except, of course, for Christmas classics, which began their annual monthlong takeover of the charts, airwaves and Echo Dots.

These preoccupations resulted in a reshuffling of our Top 100 Weekly Marketshare Chart, with Republic, IGA and Columbia bunched tightly and no other label north of 10%. Hey, it’s the most wonderful time of the year—even this brutal year—so get used to it.

Our Top 100 Weekly Marketshare Chart, which is determined by the number and placement of each label’s releases in that week’s Top 100, shows the relative performance of the major labels by percentage of the top tier of the overall business.

The new chart reveals the labels making the biggest impact during that particular seven-day period—meaning the order of battle could differ dramatically from one week to the next, particularly when superstar releases hit the market.
