Soundscan is completing its transition to a new measurement period. Due to the change, last week’s Soundscan sales chart was based on an 11-day period. This week’s chart is based on the standard 7-day period. Therefore, last week’s chart was inflated and week-to-week comparisons aren’t apples-to-apples.

The change is due to the official music release day moving from Tuesday to Friday.

There were no notable country debuts this week, so let’s look at the top 5, where Sam Hunt has the No. 1 album, and two tracks in the top 5.
