Chart News: Week of 2/6/2016

The Immaculate Collection
Billboard 200: #49 (Up from #167)
Top Catalog Albums: #6 (Up from #42)
Top Album Sales: #26 (Re-Entry)*
Digital Albums: #17 (Re-Entry)

* Last week was reported that The Immaculate Collection charted at #128 on the Top Album Sales chart, but that chart officially only has 100 positions. Billboard sometimes releases additional chart positions that are not part of the official chart for industry reference. As it stands though, The Immaculate Collection's official re-entry was not until this week. The really confusing part though is that Billboard is even listing this as a re-entry because I don't even think The Immaculate Collection has ever appeared on this chart (it's a newer chart that was introduced in the last few years if I remember correctly). Billboard even claims that this is TIC's 118th week on this chart! Also, I was completely unaware that TIC has previously charted on Digital Albums back in 2005. Thanks to Maurice G. for uncovering this info, it has now been added to TIC's page!
