Bon Jovi Tops Album Chart, Justin Timberlake’s ‘Trolls’ Soundtrack Jumps Into Top 10
Bon Jovi and Alicia Keys take the top and runner-up spots on the Billboard 200 this week, with their albums This House Is Not For Sale and Here, respectively. The former goes in at #1 on the strength of 129,000 total album units moved, 128,000 of those being traditional sales. Keys’ Here enters at #2 with 50,000 (and 42,000 in sales).
Meanwhile, the Trolls soundtrack makes a 36-position leap to #3 after the animated DreamWorks movie finally arrived in theaters on November 4. The film and its soundtrack got an early preview by way of Justin Timberlake‘s single “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” which premiered in early May and subsequently went on to top the Billboard Hot 100 later that month.
Timberlake produced the Trolls soundtrack with some help from Max Martin, Shellback, Timbaland, Nile Rodgers and The Outfit. Featured vocalists on the album include Anna Kendrick, Gwen Stefani and Ariana Grande.
Another album making a leap into the Top 10, at #5, is Rae Sremmurd‘s Sremmlife 2. That’s two spots higher than the LP premiered at in September. Chalk the resurgence up to single “Black Beatles” getting a major #MannequinChallenge boost. The song is currently the top iTunes download.
