The Chart Show

May 4, 2017

David Browne has put together a chart for those of us who enjoy stats, which compares the highest positions reached for Now What with the new album Infinite.  This chart covers the first month of the new release, but realistically unless there is a sudden surge somewhere this should be the final best placings. It gives us a good idea of where it has sold best and while it hasn’t got quite as many number 1 slots, it has charted higher in more countries than Now What. Infinite has also given the band 7 ‘best chart position since’ placings, sometimes as far back as the Seventies, and it is the best selling album for the band in the UK since 1984 which is a real milestone. World sales are estimated at 135,000 for the month although this figure will grow.
