According to Billboard, Pentatonix sold 88k in pure album sales, or “slightly more” than 98k with streaming. The Billboard 200 includes streaming, so this was enough for them to top the chart at #1.

Demi Lovato sold 77k in pure sales, and around 98k with streaming. You read that right. Pentatonix beat Demi by mere hundreds – that’s how close it was!

Reuters reported the un-rounded numbers. Demi sold 98,176 copies with streaming, and Pentatonix did 98,447 copies. That’s a difference of just 271 copies.
