Now 49 Debuts at #1, Bruno Mars Climbs to #3 Thanks to Post Super Bowl Spike

After two straight weeks at #1, the soundtrack to the Disney film Frozen has been knocked out of the top spot on the Billboard album chart by Now 49, the latest installment of the popular hits compilation series.  It’s the first #1 for the Now That’s What I Call Music! series since 2012.  Frozen dips to #2, but is expected to go platinum next week.

Meanwhile, Bruno Mars is still basking in post-Super Bowl glory, as his album Unorthodox Jukebox climbs to #3 on a 92% sales increase.  That reflects the first full week of sales following his halftime show, which broke the record for the most-watched ever.  Bruno’s debut album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, climbs to #11 on a 58% sales increase.

Elsewhere on the chart, Love, Marriage & Divorce, a joint album from Toni Braxton and Babyface, debuts at #4. This is Toni’s highest-charting album since 2005’s Libra, and it’s Babyface’s highest-charting album ever, believe it or not.  The highest he’d reached previously was #6, with the 1996 album The Day.

Farther down the chart, Salute, the new album from British girl group Little Mix, debuts at #6.  It’s the group’s second straight top-10 disc, following their 2013 debut, DNA.
