‘A Pentatonix Christmas’ Is No. 1 For A Second Week

Pentatonix have the No. 1 album for the second week in a row.

A Pentatonix Christmas rounds out 2016 as the top-selling record with 101,000 units sold. Last week, when the a cappella group took first place, it marked the first time in five years a holiday album is No. 1 during the week of Christmas; Michael Buble’s 2011 LP Christmas was the last to do so.

Numbers jargon from Billboard:

The closing tracking frame of 2016 includes the two days leading up to Christmas Day and the holiday itself, so it’s fitting that a Christmas album leads the tally. While A Pentatonix Christmas’ total units earned for the week were down by 51 percent, its traditional album sales were greater than any other album: it sold 82,000 copies (down 55 percent), far ahead of the No. 2 selling set of the week, Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic, with 55,000 copies (down 39 percent).
