Achtung Baby re-enters U.S. album chart!
« on: August 07, 2018, 02:18:16 PM »
Achtung Baby has re-entered the U.S. album chart, the Billboard Top Albums Chart, at #53. I don't have a sales figure, but I estimate it did around 3,000 copies sold, both physical and digital. So why did this happen? I think it has to do with the Vinyl Album reissue for Achtung Baby. So a lot of these sales are probably physical Vinyl albums.

Despite the strong showing, it was not enough to re-enter the Billboard 200, the official album chart that uses album sales, individual digital track downloads, and streaming in order to determine chart position.

The Billboard Top Albums chart is what the Billboard 200 used to be back in 2014 BEFORE they decided to add digitial track downloads and streaming to help determine album position on the chart.
