Frozen Falls From Top Sales Spot
May 14, 2014

After 13 non-consecutive weeks at #1, the Frozen soundtrack is finally dethroned by the NOW 50 compilation. NOW 50 debuts at #1 with 153,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It marks the 18th #1 effort for the NOW series, and all 50 of the numbered NOW albums have reached the Top 10, according to Billboard. Meanwhile, Frozen slides to #2 this week with another 99,000 units sold, and Hunter Hayes' second album, Storyline, bows at #3 with 69,000. This gives the Country singer his best sales week and highest-charting album yet.


Singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan claims the sixth Top 10 album of her long career with Shine On, debuting at #4 with 42,000. McLachlan has been on a roll as of late, considering that all five of her studio efforts since 1997's Surfacing have reached the Top 10. Debuting at #5 is Strangeulation, the new collaborations set from rapper Tech N9ne. Sold under the moniker Tech N9ne Collabos, it moved 36,000 copies. In addition to his traditional solo releases, Strangeulation is Tech N9ne's third Top 10 effort.

Pharrell Williams' G I R L holds at #6 this week with 24,000, and Luke Bryan's Crash My Party is #7 with just under 24,000. Rap duo Atmosphere bows at #8 with Southsiders, selling 23,000. It's the second Top 10 set for the duo. The sixth and final debut in the Top 10 is Santana's Spanish-language album, Corazon, which bows at #9 with 22,000 sold. This marks the band's 13th Top 10 release. Finally, Lorde closes out the Top 10 with Pure Heroine, shifting another 19,000 copies.
