Michael Buble Holds onto the #1 Billboard Spot

Michael Buble’s holiday album, Christmas, will easily hold on to the #1 slot on the Billboard 200 thanks to sales of just under 480,000, lifting his seven-week total to more than 1.5 million.

And though they notched their highest chart debut ever and best first-week sales to date, modern blues duo the Black Keys had to settle for #2 and sales of 206,000 for El Camino. Late British R&B singer Amy Winehouse was back in the top 10 thanks to her first posthumous collection, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, which hit #5 on sales of 114,000.

Other top 10 debuts include the latest “Glee” cast album (#9, 58,000) and nĂ¼-metal veterans Korn’s dip into the dubstep sound, Path of Totality (#10, 55,000). The rest of the top 10: Adele, 21 (#3, 187,000), Justin Bieber, Under the Mistletoe (#4, 158,000), Andrea Bocelli, Concerto: One Night in Central Park (#6, 79,000), Drake, Take Care (#7, 73,000) and Nickelback’s Here and Now (#8, 66,000).

The top of the charts should remain pretty static next week as the only new titles hitting the top 200 are from R&B veteran Anthony Hamilton, a joint album by Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa and recently sprung rapper Gucci Mane’s collaborative album with White Girl Mob rapper V-Nasty, Baytl.
