CHART STORY: MERRY SWIFTMAS

While we don't have a full chart today, 12/26 (to allow our chart elves to recover from their holiday hangover), Santa was able to deliver the Top 3 of the HITS Top 50. Republic's Taylor Swift repeats at #1—earning her 10th week atop the chart—as evermore logs 155-160k in its second week, a 52% drop. 

Paul McCartney bows at #2 with McCartney III (Capitol) earning 90-95k. Eminem's deluxe Music to be Murdered By: Side B (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) vaults back onto the chart at #3 with 85-90k, an increase of more than 1000%.

Now excuse us while we listen to Whole Lotta Red and smoke a whole lotta green.
