You're positively talking about physical sales but many people reporting that stores are running out of stock they can't meet the demand.

But I’m not sure about that, because HDD did these partial updates for Beyonce as well, and that album was released on iTunes only. Sometimes I think these partial updates are just a way for HDD to get more traffic to their site.
I’m happy with those sales. Some weeks the number 1 album sells less than 100 000 so I’d say 160k is a healthy number.

but as for Beyonce, true her album was released on iTunes only, but the other 49 weren't. So HDD still bad to wait for Amazon & other retailers for the other 49 on their Top 50.

Or is my memory playing tricks?
Xscape is holding up very well this week, despite the new releases!
This is very good news for week 2 sales figures and chart positions.

I was pretty relieved to know I wasn’t making things up - Beyoncé’s results came in three updates, like the rest of the albums on the chart.
