For the tenth consecutive week, Taylor Swift’s “Midnights” reigns as the best-selling album in America. SZA’s “SOS” secures a third consecutive week as the #1 album for overall US consumption.

According to Hits Daily Double, “Midnights” sold 63K US copies during the December 23-29 tracking period. The count convincingly ranks as the week’s best.

With units from track sales and streams included, the album generated another 112K in total tracking period consumption.

Hits has that as the week’s #2 tally; SZA’s “SOS” takes #1 with 123K.

Due in the coming days, Billboard’s numbers may differ slightly from those reported by Hits. Headline Planet will provide an update if the discrepancy is enough to alter the hierarchy of “Midnights” at #1 for sales and “SOS” at #1 for units.
