“The White Stripes Greatest Hits” also debuts at No. 1 on the Tastemakers Albums chart.
The White Stripes’ The White Stripes Greatest Hits arrives at No. 4 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart (dated Dec. 19), as the set rocks with 20,000 copies sold in the U.S. in the week ending Dec. 10, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
It’s the fourth top 10 for the duo, who last visited the top 10 in 2007 with their final studio album, Icky Thump.
Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart ranks the top-selling albums of the week based only on traditional album sales. The Album Sales 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 Nielsen Music/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.
