Hooray for Hollywood! For the first time in more than 18 years, a whopping four soundtracks are in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart at the same time. The film tunes parade is led by the surging soundtrack to Moana, which leaps from No. 6 to No. 2 on the chart dated Jan. 21, with 64,000 equivalent album units earned (up 21 percent) in the tracking week ending Jan. 5, according to Nielsen Music.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Jan. 21-dated chart will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Jan. 10.
Moana also rules as the top-selling album of the week, with 44,000 copies sold.
