Michael Bublé's Christmas took the top spot on Billboard 200.

Christmas sold just OVER 227,000 copies while Nickelback's Here and Now sold just UNDER 227,000.

The margin between the album is only 0.18 percent!

The album marks Bublé's third time on top of the 200.

In 2007, Call Me Irresponsible peaked at number one and Crazy Love was numero uno in 2009.

With 227,000 albums sold, it is the highest debut for a Bublé album.

Rihanna also jumped in at number three, selling 197,000.

Talk That Talk is Rihanna's sixth top 10 album.

Drake, last week's big dog at 631,000, fell 73% and landed fourth with 173,000.

Bublé charted number two behind Drake last week.

    Who in the hell buys Nickelback albums?



  2. 2

    Its all xmas publicity. This guy sucks. After xmas he will be back to be a nobody.

    and u called Beyonce's debut a flop right? with 300,000? but Rihanna debuted at number 3 with only a hundred something thousand…..yeah. I'll be sure to remember this forever. Since you aren't talking negatively about it at all.



  4. 4

    shit!! why did Rihanna flop so hard?? i don't get it.

    Re: je veux te voir – Rihanna really flopped big time here!! This is weird. This album sold pretty badly considering all the publicity and huge hit song.

    This was copied straight from Billboard like it was nothing, title and all! Re: je veux te voir – Beyonce is an artist who pushes over 500,000 units first week, so 300,000 was low for her - her lowest debut week ever, in fact. Rihanna sells between 150k to 210k during her first week sales, so this is actually consistent for her, and the fact that her album sales remain consistent and end up outselling those of Beyonce (Loud outsold 4 last week worldwide and it's a year old). This flop this week was MJB, who got outsold by Nickelback, Rihanna, and Drake's TWO WEEK OLD album. She almost always lands in the no. 1 or 2 spot with 300k+.

    Re: FatAzzPooHeadDoodle – There was no publicity other than her appearance on Ellen. She performed on X-Factor a week before it was even released. She has been on tour in Europe and filming a new music video, but she will be back in the US this week to actually promote it (starting with the Grammys concert tonight).

    The writing of this article is so sloppy, BTW. You said 227k is the highest DEBUT for a Buble album, yet you report that is was no. 2 last week? You mean sales week, not debut sales week. Might as well copy and paste the whole article rather than the title next time.

    Rihanna, WHAT A MUSICAL JOKE! great singles, HORRIBLE albums. bitch has no clue after all this time.



  10. 10

    Rather Bublé who actually can sing than Rihanna who can't and promotes abuse.

    Re: je veux te voir – and Steez: Vous êtes tellement plein de merde. Please don't use the name of Robyn/Rhianna and "artist" in the same sentence. Her music is the equivalent of a Big Mac. A couple of bites taste good, then you get sick afterwards because it's pure processed crap with no natural ingredients.

    Re: HarleyDex – Some people who don't buy auto-tuned Robyn from Barbados albums, and other people who aren't into a Canadian Christmas album.
