Taylor Swift’s “Midnights” album is in its fifth week at the top of the Billboard 200 albums chart.
According to early mid-week predictions by the Hits Daily Double, the smash album is set to top the charts once more.
According to preliminary data, “Midnights” led the genre-blending album charts last week, with 55,000 pure album sales and 140,000 activity.
When comparing the album sales of “Midnights” to the other albums on the chart, the record is greater than the combined sales of the Top 2 through the Top 13.
Drake and 21 Savage’s “Her Loss,” which dethroned the album in its supposed fourth week at the top, is trailing behind “Midnights.” The former is expected to produce around 460 albums.
Meanwhile, Bad Bunny’s “Un Verano Sin Ti,” named Spotify’s Most Streamed Album of 2022 globally, ranks third with 1,900 album sales.
With the Christmas season officially beginning tomorrow, a few holiday albums have returned to the charts, with Michael Buble’s “Christmas” ranking fourth with 10,000 album sales.
With 130 album sales but 43,000 activity, Lil Baby’s “It’s Only Me” is in fifth place. The former No. 1 is expected to have the fewest sales with a three-digit figure among the top ten.
The “Christmas Song,” one of Nat King Cole’s greatest hits, is expected to enter the Top 10 next week at No. 6.
“Dangerous: The Double Album” by Morgan Wallen is at No. 7, and “The Highlights” by The Weekend is at No. 8.
Meanwhile, Mariah Carey’s perennial album “Merry Christmas” is at No. 9, with “Charlie Brown Christmas” by Vince Guaraldi Trio at No. 10.
Harry Styles’ former chart-topper “As It Was” is expected to drop to No. 11 on the predicted Album 200 charts next week.
Six more Christmas albums are expected to chart in the Top 20. Bing Crosby’s “Christmas Classics” debuted at No. 12, Frank Sinatra’s “Ultimate Christmas” debuted at No. 13, and Pentatonix’s “The Best of Pentatonix Christmas” debuted at No. 16.
Christmas albums also occupy the Top 18, 19, and 20 positions, with Burl Ive’s “Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer,” Phil Spector’s “A Christmas Gift from Phil Spector,” and Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree,” respectively.
