[WEEKLY SALES] Bon Jovi’s ‘This House Is Not For Sale’ Debuts On Top

Music Biz President James Donio commented on the recent sales figures released by Nielsen (published in Billboard) and BuzzAngle Music (published in HITS):

Legendary New Jersey rockers Bon Jovi claimed their sixth #1 album on the Nielsen and BuzzAngle Music charts this week with their new record, This House Is Not for Sale. It’s their fourth straight chart-topper and 13th album to reach the Top 10, with sales bolstered by a promotion in which those who bought a ticket to one of their live concerts also received a physical copy of the album. They are followed at #2 by Alicia Keys, who scores her seventh Top 10 effort with Here. Other big debuts came from EDM duo The Chainsmokers with their Collage EP and the Now 60 compilation. Next week, we’ll be keeping an eye on new releases from A Tribe Called Quest, Sting, Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood, and Music Biz 2013 Breakthrough Artist of the Year Emeli Sandé.
