Meghan Trainor’s debut album “Title” has unseated Taylor Swift from her three-week spot atop the weekly Billboard album chart.
Trainor’s album was lead by her massive No. 1 single “All About That Bass” and the follow-up “Lips Are Moving.” The album sold 195,000 copies, while grabbing 377,000 song downloads, and nearly 8 million streams.
The Billboard chart was recently revamped and under its new chart the album counted for 238,000 total sales units, besting Swift’s “1989” sales of 131,000. Taylor Swift’s album sat on top of the charts in nine of its 12 weeks in release.
Trainor’s debut follows up her 2014 EP of the same name and arrives just three weeks before the Grammy’s where she is nominated for song and record of the year for “All About That Bass.” Her hit song spend eight consecutive weeks in the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014.
Deserving special mention is Ronson and singer Bruno Mars’ hit “Uptown Funk!” which remained as the top digital song download for the third consecutive week. Their throwback hit racked up an additional 400,000 downloads, up from 360,000 last week.
