Grammy Nominees Album Scores #2 Debut
January 29, 2014

The soundtrack to Disney's Frozen returns to #1 on the sales chart this week, selling another 93,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Frozen is the first soundtrack to spend at least three weeks at #1 since 2007, when the TV soundtrack to High School Musical 2 accomplished the feat. The highest debut on the chart this week is the 2014 Grammy Nominees compilation album, which enters at #2 with 59,000 sold. This actually marks the best debut week for the annual compilation since the 2007 edition, which bowed at #4 with 77,000 sold, according to Billboard.com.

Beyoncé's self-titled album is #3 this week with 48,000 sold, and the first album from Pop duo A Great Big World, Is There Anybody Out There?, debuts at #4, shifting just under 48,000 units. Lorde's Pure Heroine is #5 with 37,000, and Kidz Bop 25 is #6 in its second week, selling 36,000.

Young the Giant scores its best week ever with its second album, Mind Over Matter. The new new effort earns a #7 debut for the band with 33,500 copies sold.
Last week's chart-topper, Bruce Springsteen's High Hopes, falls to #8 in its second week with 26,000, and Katy Perry's Prism is steady at #9 with 25,000. Finally, Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 sits at #10 with 24,000 copies sold.

Next week's sales chart will show the full impact of Sunday night's Grammy awards, as the big winners typically see a huge spike in sales in the week following the show. That spike was already seen a little bit on this week's tally, as 13 albums in the Top 40 earned gains that are tied to the Grammys. Among those are Lorde's Pure Heroine, which is up 19 percent in sales; Perry's Prism, which is up 11 percent; Imagine Dragons' Night Visions, up 16 percent; and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' The Heist, with a 38 percent sales jump.
