Michael Bublé's Global 'Christmas' Sales Now North Of 12M Copies

By FYI Staff

Michael Bublé’s 2011 holiday album Christmas ascends 2-1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, with a 19% consumption increase over last week. The album scores the highest audio-on-demand stream total and second highest album sales total for the week. This is the album’s 5th week at No. 1 to date, but the first time it has reached the summit since it spent four weeks at No. 1 the year it was released, in 2011. It is Buble’s second chart-topping album of 2018, following Love, which sits at No. 5 this week.


Noteworthy is the fact the Christmas album has sold in excess of 1.5M copies in Canada, approximately 4M in the US, just shy of 3M in the UK, and well over 1M in Australia. Global sales are somewhere north of 12M copies.

Two new albums debuted Christmas week in the top five, both achieving chart peaks for the artists. 21 Savage’s I Am I Was debuts at 3, surpassing the No. 5 peak of his 2017 album with Offset and Metro Boomin–Without Warning; and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Hoodie SZN enters at 4, topping the No. 10 peak of his 2017 release, The Bigger Artist.

Christmas songs dominate the Streaming Songs chart this week, taking six of the top ten positions, led by Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” in the top two spots.

Panic! At the Disco’s “High Hopes” vaults 3-1 on the Songs chart, marking it as the Las Vegas act’s first chart-topping digital song.
