Pink Lands Ninth Consecutive Top 10 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart With ‘All I Know So Far: Setlist’

Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart ranks the top-selling albums of the week based only on traditional album sales. The chart’s history dates back to May 25, 1991, the first week Billboard began tabulating charts with electronically monitored piece count information from SoundScan, now MRC Data. Pure album sales were the measurement solely utilized by the Billboard 200 albums chart through the list dated Dec. 6, 2014, after which that chart switched to a methodology that blends album sales with track equivalent album units and streaming equivalent album units.

Twenty One Pilots’ Scaled and Icy starts at No. 2 on Top Album Sales with 51,000 copies sold, while Lord Huron debuts at No. 4 with Long Lost (16,000). For Twenty One Pilots, it’s the duo’s third album to reach the top two on Top Album Sales, and for Lord Huron, it’s the act’s third top 10.
