Michael Bublé's 2011 'Christmas' Album Goes To No. 2


A lot of Americans celebrated Christmas with the sounds of Canadian crooner Michael Bublé.

According to data from Nielsen Music, Bublé’s 2011 Christmas album was the second most popular album in the U.S. during the week ended Dec. 26.

On the Billboard 200 chart dated Jan. 7 and published on Dec. 31, Fine Line by Harry Styles remains at No. 1 for a second week with 89,000 equivalent album units. Christmas is not far behind with 77,000.

No. 2 is the highest chart position for Bublé’s holiday collection since it spent five weeks at No. 1 following its release eight years ago. Christmas managed to get to No. 3 on the Billboard 200 charts dated Dec. 29, 2012 and Jan. 5, 2019.

The album, which counts Bublé’s fellow Canadians David Foster and Bob Rock among producers, has been in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 every holiday season since it was released.

Christmas features Bublé’s interpretations of more than a dozen classic songs, including “Silent Night,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town.” There is also a cover of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and the original track “Cold December Night.”

It was the first holiday collection to win Album of the Year at the Juno Awards.
