Pentatonix Has Earned Their 10th Top 10 Album
It’s that time of the year where A Capella group Pentatonix climbs the charts. The group is back with their 10th top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Their latest release, The Best of Pentatonix Christmas jumps from 18 to 8 in its sixth week on the chart. This compilation of hits from the ground was released via RCA Records on October 25th. The Billboard 200 album chart ranks the most popular albums of the week. Rankings are created using multi-metric consumption measured in equivalent album units. These units are made up of streaming equivalent albums, track equivalent albums, and traditional album sales. Most noteworthy, the A Capella sensation’s latest album has earned 43,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. These numbers are reported according to Nielsen Music. “The Best of…” is a collection of favorites from the group’s previous four Christmas albums. Additionally, there are four new songs added to the set.
Of the latest tracks from the compilation, there is a collaboration with the great late Whitney Houston. The track “Do You Hear What I Hear” is credited to Pentatonix featuring Whitney. Houston recorded and released a version of this song, a solo rendition, in 1987. Upon the release, it was included in a charity compilation called A Very Special Christmas. However, the new version has debuted at number 19 on the latest Adult Contemporary airplay chart.
It should be no surprise why the group does so well during the holiday season. They have become a staple for many as 5 of the groups 10 albums are holiday efforts. Perhaps most noteworthy, in total, the group has sold 4.5 million copies of their albums in the United States. Stay tuned through the rest of the month to see how Pentatonix continues to chart.
