Christian Album Sales – Week of 5/29/12

Metalcore band For Today has a career-best debut at #15. I can’t confirm this but it may be their first album to chart on the Billboard 200.

(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.)

Marvin Sapp’s album has sold over 100,000 copies. Casting Crowns is approaching 450,000. WOW 2012 has crossed 250,000.
