(For whatever reason, Soundscan includes sales from Christian outlets in their weekly totals that determine the Billboard 200 chart positions, but they don’t include them in their reported totals. So I just add up all the weekly totals and compare them to the reported totals to see how many sales are missing from Christian outlets.)

Wow Gospel 2012 cross the 100,000 mark. Newsboys crosses 125K. Britt Nicole’s new album fell off the charts after selling 25,000. Chris Tomlin’s compilation album fell off again after hitting 150,000.
