James Taylor Spends 4th Week In US Top 10

James Taylor stays in the Billboard top ten albums for a fourth week with Before This World.

This is the first week the Billboard charts are being issued on Tuesday to line them up with the new Friday release date. Billboard made the decision to reuse last week’s sales data and add in Monday through Thursday of last week to realign.

Taylor’s album, which showed a very strong sales hold week-to-week, falls from 5 to 6.

The majority of the other albums didn’t see much change with normal moves of less than ten spots up or down. A notable exception is Neil Young’s new album, The Monsanto Years, which dropped from 21 to 39.

The only new album to debut in the top 200 involving veteran artists is 21 Throwback Jams featuring tracks by the likes of TLC, DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, Toni Braxton and Wu Tang Clan. It starts at 179.

On the country side, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler is at the top of the Country Streaming Songs with Love Is Your Name. It remains to be seen if the interest in his first country release is a curiosity or whether the track will have some legs.

The top five albums this week in the U.S.:
Dreams Worth More Than Money – Meek Mill
1989 – Taylor Swift
Wildheart – Miguel
X – Ed Sheeran
Montevallo – Sam Hunt

The top five singles:
Cheerleader – OMI
See You Again – Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth
Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd
Bad Blood – Taylor Swift Featuring Kendrick Lamar
Watch Me – Silento
