Grammy-award-winning Canadian superstar Michael Buble sees his festive album ‘Christmas’ score the biggest weekly sales of any album this year so far with over 269,000 copies bought in the last seven days, a week-on-week sales increase of over 42%.
This is the second week that ‘Christmas’ has spent at the top spot, having previously peaked at Number 1 in November. ‘Christmas’ entered the Official Albums Chart at Number 3 back in October and has never been out of the Official Albums Chart Top 5 since.
Buble has scored six Official Albums Chart Top 10 hits, including the Number 1s ‘Christmas’ and last year’s eight-times-platinum ‘Crazy Love’. Buble has sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
It’s not just Michael Buble fans who have got into the Christmas spirit. This week festive fever really takes hold with the Official Albums Chart Top 6 all recording sales over 100,000.
Coldplay record the biggest percentage increase in week-on-week sales (113%) as ‘Mylo Xyloto’ climbs to this week’s Number 3 from last week’s Number 8.
