Lumineers, Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons, Dustin Lynch, Emeli Sande and Cher Lloyd are just a few of the acts featured in our weekly "Bubbling Under" column, named after the longtime chart that tracks activity below the Billboard Hot 100.
Taylor Swift heads back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week as her "Red" set steps 2-1 with 167,000 (up 22%), according to Nielsen SoundScan. Last week's leader, Alicia Keys' "Girl On Fire," falls to No. 7 with 77,000 (down 52%).
In the wake of her tragic death, Aaliyah's self-titled Blackground/Virgin release shoots 19-1 on The Billboard 200 this week, based on a sales jump from 62,000 to 306,000 units in the U.S., according to SoundScan. The late artist's surge to No. 1 was predicated last week when retailers reported massive sales gains following the Aug. 25 plane crash that took the life of Aaliyah and eight others.
