After 11 weeks of The Chainsmokers "Closer" atop the Global Track Chart,
Japanese girl band 乃木坂46 (nogizaka46) are No.1 with their latest smash
hit 'Sayonara No Imi'. The Song shifted 827,717 singles in its first
week, according to Oricon. It's the third global no.1 smash for
Nogizaka46, the official rival of the No.1 group in Japan, AKB48, who
will be no.1 next week, when their new song "High Tension'" explodes
with sales of over a million this week!

Because of these Japanese top-selling girlie acts, Canadian R&B star The
Weeknd's 'Starboy' stays a 7th week at No. 2!

'Black Beatles' by American hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd featuring American
rapper Gucci Mane is perhaps the last big global smash of the current
year! The Song rises to no.3 this week. This sudden success is thanks to
Mannequin Challenge, a viral internet video trend, where people remain
frozen in action like mannequins while a video is recorded, usually with
the song 'Black Beatles' playing in the background.

On the year end chart for the best-selling Singles of 2016, 'One Dance'
by Drake feat. Wizkid & Kyla is still the No. 1 Single with Justin
Timberlake's 'Can't Stop The Feeling' close behind!

American hip-hop group, A Tribe Called Quest, was formed in 1985. Now,
more than 30 years later, their 6th studio album 'We Got It From
Here...Thank You 4 Your Service' debuts this week at No. 1 on the Global
Album chart with sales of 136,000, 111,900 of it in America!


After Leonard Cohen's death two weeks ago at the age of 82, many of his
songs and albums have returned to the top of the charts internationally.
His latest album 'You Want It Darker' debuted three weeks ago at no.3
with sales of 115,000 and is No. 2 this week with sales of 135,000 and a
total of 355,000 after four weeks at retail.


Close behind at No. 3 with sales of 134,000 is Country Legend Garth
Brooks and his latest 10-disc compilation, exclusively available through
Target at $29,99. It's ineligible to chart on the US-Billboard Album
List, as its price falls below the minimum required price to chart.


The holiday season started and many X-mas albums are back on the charts.
At the moment 'A Pentatonix Christmas' leads all these releases with
63,000 additional sales last week, enough to go to no.9 globally.
Michael Bublé's classic 'Christmas' from 2011 climbs to no.18 this week
with sales of 36,000.

'Closer' rules an 11th week on the Global Track Chart although the gap
between 'Closer' and The Weeknd's 'Starboy' is becoming smaller and
smaller. 'Starboy' remains at No. 2 for a sixth week.

Next week Japanese girl Band 乃木坂46 (nogizaka46) is probably going to
replace The Chainsmokers with their new single 'Sayonara No Imi' which
has had a huge debut this week!

'Black Beatles' by American rap duo Rae Sremmurd shoots to no.5 on the
Global Track Chart with the highest debut of the week thanks to the
Mannequin Challenge, a viral internet video trend, where people remain
frozen in action like mannequins while a video is recorded, usually with
tthe song 'Black Beatles' playing in the background. That's why this
tune makes an impressive jump on the charts this week, even though it
was originally released in September 2016!
