Super Bowl Casts A Big Shadow Over This Week's Albums Chart

The Encanto soundtrack spends its fourth straight week at the top of the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, once again picking up the highest on-demand stream total.

Ed Sheeran’s = moves 3-2, its highest chart position since its third week on the chart in November.

The universally acclaimed Super Bowl halftime show last week led to some big consumption totals for the participants. Eminem’s 2005 greatest hits album Curtain Call jumps 26-3; Dr. Dre’s sophomore album 2001, which peaked at No. 3, moves 52-6 with the highest digital song downloads for the week; 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ bullets 93-31; Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid M.A.A.D City moves 71-44; Snoop Dogg’s new album BODR debuts at No. 97, and Mary J. Blige’s Reflections: A Retrospective re-enters at No. 113.

This week’s top new entry belongs to Eddie Vedder as his latest solo release debuts at No. 27 with the highest album sales total for the week. Other debuts include alt-J’s The Dream at No. 50, Quebec vedette Guylaine Tanguay’s Ginette A Ma Facon at No. 59 and American rapper $not’s Ethereal at No. 61.
