"All That You Can't Leave Behind" re-enters U.S. Billboard 200 Album chart!

I wasn't sure if the release of the 20th anniversary edition would have much impact on ATYCLB making the charts again given how low interest in this re-release seemed to be. But for the Billboard Chart ending November 14, 2020, ATYCLB has re-entered the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart at #69 !    You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

          It should be noted that the current Billboard 200 album chart is compiled using album sales(physical and digital), Individual track purchases from the album with 10 track purchases being equal to 1 album sale, and streaming, (several thousand streams equal to 1 album sale, can't remember the exact number). The Billboard 200 album chart went to this new format around 2014/2015 time frame.

          Billboard still has what is called the "TOP ALBUM SALES CHART" that excludes Individual Track sales and streaming. Its like the original album sales chart where only full album(physical and digital) purchases were counted. On this chart, which is like the original chart ATYCLB charted on from November 2000 through August 2002, it enters the chart at #13.

          Precise sales data was difficult to obtain. The album at #12, "Missunderstood - Queen Naija" on the TOP ALBUM SALES CHART, sold
9,626 copies. "The Album - BLACKPINK" at #17 sold 5,595 copies. So ATYCLB's sales this week were somewhere between these two figures. If you split the difference, that would put ATYCLB sales this week at 7,500 copies. Note that counts all formats of the album, physical, digital, standard, 20th anniversary edition combined.

         ATYCLB was on the Billboard 200 album chart for 94 weeks before it dropped off the chart after August 31, 2002. This week, November 14, 2020 marks its 95th week on the Billboard 200 album chart. A little over 18 years since it was last on the Billboard 200 album chart.

        All That You Can't Leave Behind won 7 Grammy awards and sold over 12 million copies worldwide. More than 4.3 million of those copies were sold in the United States.
