Coldplay At #1 For Second Week On Billboard 200
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.04.2014



Coldplay's Ghost Stories is at #1 on the Billboard 200 for a second week with Mariah Carey's Me. I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse debuting at #3.

Ghost Stories sold 83,000 copies, down 78% from last week when it debuted with 383,000 (the biggest sales week for an album this year). Two week sales are at 466,000. It is now the sixth-largest-selling album of the year. The Frozen soundtrack is still #1 with 2.5 million and is the only album to sell a million copies in 2014.

Chanteuse is Carey's seventeenth top ten album as it sold 58,000. Her last non-Christmas album, 2009's Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, debuted at #3 with 168,000. That makes Chanteuse the lowest debut for a non-holiday album since Soundscan started tracking sales in 1991. The previous low was 1991's Emotions, which debuted at #4 with 156,000. She's had six #1 albums between 1991 and 2008.

The album was originally set to arrive in March 2013 but was then moved to July 23; May 6, 2014 and finally May 27. Promotion started in August 2012 when the song "Triumphant (Get 'Em)" was released, even though that song isn't on the new album. The most recent charting single on the Hot 100 was "You're Mine (Eternal)", which peaked at #88 with only one week on the list.

1. Coldplay - Ghost Stories (83,000)
2. Brantley Gilbert - Just As I Am (65,000)
3. Mariah Carey - Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse (58,000)
4. Frozen soundtrack (58,000)
5. Austin Mahone - The Secret (46,000)
6. Now 50 (41,000)
7. Michael Jackson - Xscape (35,000)
8. The Black Keys - Turn Blue (32,000)
9. Crowder - Neon Steeple (22,000)
10. Iggy Azalea - The New Classic (18,000)

Album sales this week totaled 4.2 million copies, down 13% compared to last week (4.77 million and down 13% compared to last year (4.80 million). Year-to-date album sales stand at 102.91 million, down 15 percent compared with the same total at this point last year (121.4 million).
