In comparison, the Texan-born singer garnered a bigger sales number by raking in around 41,000 units in the week before Christmas.

The album, however, did climb several spots higher on the Billboard Hot 200. It jumped from No. 39 to No. 17, but it should be noted that the album could reach higher position partly because of the chart's quiet week.
