Billboard charts on Friday (Jan. 28) reveal the Billboard 200 album chart for the week ending Jan. 28, with the biggest gains on the Hot 100 and Streaming Songs charts.
Billboard’s chart toppers in the week include the biggest hits on both sides of the Atlantic, and the Billboard Top 20 Albums chart lists the albums that have sold the most copies through Feb. 6.
The Hot 100 is based on sales in the United States, and Streaming Singles is based only on streaming sales in that country.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the US and Canada, as well as the albums which peaked at the top of the Billboard Hot 100.
The chart also includes the Billboard 100 Most Popular Songs, which is composed of the top 40 songs on the Billboard 500 most-played chart.
The album chart also contains the Hot R&b/Hip-Hop Songs chart (where Jay Z’s “I’m A King” and Drake’s “Love Lockdown” chart-toppers “Blurred Lines” and “Latch Key” rank), as well the Alternative Songs chart, which includes the top 20 most popular songs on radio and in the charts.
Streaming Songs includes the Top 200 most-streamed songs in the world (from Jan. 6-20) and Streaming R&p Songs includes songs from outside the US that have topped the Hot 200.
The list also includes all albums in the Billboard Global 200 chart (dated Jan. 5), which is compiled by Nielsen Music.
Billboard 100: Jan. 27-Feb. 2, 2017, based on Nielsen Music, is the 100th consecutive week that the Billboard 400 albums chart has not included a new entry in the Hot 50.
The only other week in which a Billboard 400 album chart did not include a new release in the top 10 was Jan. 4-6, 2016, when the Hot 80 albums chart did, but the chart included two albums that had not previously made the Hot List: Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” and Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood,” both of which were part of the Hot 40 and Hot R+B/H&R charts.
(The Billboard 200 is not presented in order of their debut, but rather as a cumulative list of all albums that appear in the chart.
This chart will include all albums not on the current Billboard 200 and all albums on the Future Classic and Top 40 albums lists.
Previously, Billboard had listed “The Pinkprint,” “Boys Don’t Cry,” “Sneaky Pete,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Blank Space,” “A Night in Paris” and more on the list.)
The Billboard 100 is released Monday, Jan. 30.
