Michael Buble Scores Fourth No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart

"To Be Loved" bows with sales of 195,000 after the singer's media blitz.

As predicted, Michael Buble earns his fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with “To Be Loved.” The Reprise/Warner Bros. Records set bows with 195,000 sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

“To Be Loved,” released last Tuesday (April 23), is Buble’s fourth consecutive full-length album to hit No. 1. It follows 2011’s “Christmas,” 2009’s “Crazy Love” and 2007’s “Call Me Irresponsible.” The new album follows his smash holiday album “Christmas,” which became 2011’s second-biggest selling release. It moved 2.45 million copies that year, second only to Adele’s “21” (5.82 million in 2011).


Buble made a number of public appearances during the sales tracking week (which ended Sunday, April 28) to help promote the album. He was profiled on ABC’s “Nightline” (April 24) and performed on both “Live With Kelly and Michael” (April 25) and NBC’s “Today” (April 26). On Tuesday night, he’ll sing on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” and will visit “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, May 2.

The full top 10 of the new Billboard 200 will be revealed on Wednesday, May 1.
