Making good on the early projection, Celine Dion’s “Courage” won this week’s US album sales and consumption races.
According to Hits Daily Double, it led the sales race by moving 116.5K first-week copies in the US. With units from track sales and streams included, it generated a total of 120K in first-week consumption. That figure positions “Courage” atop the overall Hits Top 50 chart.
Due Sunday, Billboard’s data may differ slightly from that reported by Hits. The discrepancies will not, however, be enough to impact the album’s positioning atop the charts.
“Courage” becomes Celine Dion’s fifth career #1 in the US.
