On The Charts This Week

Celine Dion’s Encore Un Soir remains as the No. 1 album in the country, in its third week at the top of the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, with about 11,000 actual sales and 12,000 total consumption units. It is Dion’s longest run at number one since 2007’s Taking Chances spent three weeks in the same spot.

Jason Aldean’s They Don’t Know scores the top new entry on the chart at 2 with 7,300 total consumption units. All four of the American country singer’s albums have now topped the Country Albums chart.

Touch, July Talk’s highly touted sophomore set for Sleepless Records, debuts at 5 with 5,500 total consumption units, marking the first top ten album for the Canadian band. The promising but ultimately less successful 2012 self-titled debut peaked at 33 in Sept. 2014. Since then the band has built a strong rep with its live show and earned international release commitments for the new recording.

Bastille’s Wild World enters at 7 with 4,000 total consumption units, marking highest charting album to date for the Brit pop band. 




CCMA home-hitter Tim Hicks scores his third straight top 20 album as Shake These Walls lands at 15 with 2,500 total consumption units in the week.

Other new entries in the top 30 include The Beatles’ Live At The Hollywood Bowl at 16, Jack White’s Acoustic Recordings at No. 18 and US folk ensemble The Head And The Heart’s Signs Of Light at 26.

“Closer” by The Chainsmokers’ is about rekindling a romance and it has clearly struck as it spends its fourth consecutive week at No. 1 on the Songs and Streaming Songs chart. The collaboration between singer-songwriter Halsey and Chainsmoker Drew Taggart posts over 5M streams for the first time and has over 20K downloads for the third straight week.
