Michael Buble Jingles Another Week at Number One

(December 07, 2011)

BURBANK, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/07/11 -- Michael Bublé is having a holly jolly holiday season as sales for his "Christmas" CD have exploded this week to a staggering 292, 501 units (up 29%), keeping the Bublé franchise at No. 1 for a second straight week on Billboard's Top 200 Chart. Sales have now surged past the one million mark. With major TV appearances this week on 60 Minutes and Bublé's Holiday special on NBC as well as his upcoming December 17th appearance on SNL as the musical guest and a co hosting stint on Live! with Kelly on December 15th and 16th, sales are expected to surge through the end of the year.

The multi-Grammy winning Canadian superstar has five songs from "Christmas" currently on the radio including "All I Want For Christmas Is You" which remains in the No. 1 spot for a second week.

Global sales on Bublé's "Christmas" have surpassed five million. Though Bublé has had five consecutive multi-platinum CDs since he burst onto the music scene nine years ago, "Christmas" is Bublé's fastest selling album to date.

On the international front Bublé has the No. 1 spot in Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and South Africa, the No. 2 CD in the UK and is Top Five in many major markets.


Fans will receive more good cheer from Michael later this month via Zynga's CityVille in their version of "Monopoly Meets Main Street" -- the most popular game on Facebook with 50 million players each month according to AppData.com.

The Michael Bublé photo book "Michael Bublé onstage offstage," which includes accompanying text by the artist with photography by Dean Freeman, is currently available in bookstores nationwide.
